WHAT // STLFW VIP Blogger’s Lounge

Oh, what a fun weekend! The Saint Louis Fashion Week VIP Blogger’s Lounge at Scape American Bistro in the Central West End was hosted by Lindsay Pattan and Jimmy No Show, and — drum roll, please — presented by Well Dressed Midwest! Okay, so you’re not excited because you don’t know what that means, but I have been dying to tell you. So many meetings! So much brainstorming! You see, I proudly serve on the Well Dressed Midwest steering committee, and I have been excited about this project since Lindsay first brought it up… I’ll go into all the details soon, but for now you should know this: Well Dressed Midwest is a spectacular blogger network full of resources, brand opportunities and more. And I am so excited.

Now, back to the event. Blogger after blogger circled the upstairs of Scape, moving from booth to bar to booth. Think of it as equal parts brand networking and cocktail party. I met some spectacular people — saw a few fantastic familiar faces, too! — and fell madly in love with a new cocktail. Oh, and I left with four bags of amazing new goodies I can’t wait to share — including a drawn-on-the-spot fashion sketch of yours truly!  Take a peek at a few of my favorite photos, event features, products and more.
