CT Blogger Meet-Up!

CT Blogger Meetup 1

L to R: Amber, Lydia, Megan, me, Courtney

Last month, I made plans to meet up with some fabulous Connecticut bloggers. At the time, I thought I was going to be in New Haven for the summer, but even after I found out that I would be moving to New York, I did not want to miss this blogger meet-up! It was such a pleasure to meet these ladies and they were all so fabulously dressed! Let’s meet them one by one, shall we?














And you might perhaps recognize this last person…

Me! :)


H&M Dress, Target Wedges



Your eyes do not deceive you- in that last shot, I am holding my new toy, a Nikon D40 camera! I bought it second-hand off of Craig’s List for only $250 and this meet-up was the perfect opportunity to bring it out to play! So far, I am loving it, especially how much better the pictures are turning out. If I get my act together, I might even take a digital photography class this summer.

We had so much fun shooting each other in a couple of different locations on Yale’s campus! It was really weird being back at school and not seeing anybody I knew. Also, normally I am one of the people looking at all the tour groups snapping pictures frantically, but this time, we were the objects of people’s stares! As you guys know, I am too chicken to do outdoor shots by myself, but with these girls I wasn’t too nervous at all and I had a blast!

After taking pictures, we headed to Barcelona, a delicious tapas restaurant in New Haven. There, the waiter commented on how dressed up we were and asked what occasion we were celebrating. When we told him we were all meeting for the first time, he asked how we met and someone responded, “Online…” which sounds really funny without the context to back it up! :D We ended up explaining to him that we are fashion bloggers and we even took a picture with him that is supposed to be posted to the restaurant’s Facebook page. After dinner we had drinks at a bar called 116 Crown (guess where it’s located? That’s right, 116 Crown Street! ;D 116 Crown had really interesting drinks, such as the Grey Lady that Courtney ordered, which has egg foam in it, but totally doesn’t taste like it does! Late in the night, we parted ways and agreed that we must do it again soon! This was my first meet-up and I can’t emphasize this enough- find other bloggers in your area and meet them in person! I bet you’ll have a fantastic time! ;)
