Blogger Meet-up at The Strand!

How’s everyone been enjoying Fashion Week?  Last week was pretty hectic with all the fun events I was able to attend and now it’s time to start sharing my photos! :)  First up, the blogger meetup at The Strand organized by the lovely Katy Rose of Modly Chic.  Sorry some of the pictures are blurry- the rainy weather didn’t make for the best lighting!

One of the bloggers I met: Michelle of Radiant Brown Beauty

The Top of the Strand is a really lovely rooftop bar with a great ambiance.  I met up with Alex before the event and then we headed over there together.  At first we were shy, but then we met Katy Rose (who is awesome, by the way!) and started to loosen up and mingle.  It was so great to able to talk with other people who totally get blogs and/or blog themselves!  I got to meet and chat with some very sweet bloggers, including Laura from A La Mode et Plus and Marissa from The Well-Appointed Catwalk, as well as Heather and Lia who were representing TJ Maxx/Marshalls.  All in all, it was a very fun event and we walked away with some lovely goodies :)

Stay tuned for more recap posts about Fashion Week events in the next few days! =)

    Oooh! Is this the top of The Strand bookstore? I didn’t know they had a rooftop bar. Unless I am terribly mistaken and this is not the bookstore and a completely different vendor.

    Glad you had a great time! Take more photographs of New York. I shall live vicariously through you.

      No, it’s actually the top of the Strand Hotel! Speaking of The Strand bookstore, I haven’t been yet- I really should go!

      I do need to take more pictures of NYC- I think that’s going to be one of my goals for the fall :)

  6. Ugh, sorry, I wish I could have gotten them to come out clearer! Next time I’ll try to figure out how to set shutter speed on your camera!
