Get In The Mix/ OC Fashion Blogger Meet Up

Yesterday was our Orange County fashion blogger event held at The OC Mart Mix in Costa Mesa and methinks it was a success! As someone who works on both sides of the fashion blogging industry, both as a blogger and as someone who works on behalf of a brand in order to facilitate blogger partnerships, it was a real treat to see both worlds collide last night.

When I pitched my idea about creating a  fun blogger event to my wonderful corworkers, the lovely ladies at Shout PR, for Orange County bloggers they were totally onboard. Let's be real, LA fully overshadows the fashion scene in Southern California BUT it's a shame because there are so many great Orange County based companies and businesses that deserve recognition. We figured that it would be nice to have an event that connected local bloggers, businesses, and our clients, many of which are Orange County (if not Southern California) based companies. A triple win! I hope we have more events in the future. I also hope that there are just more OC events period because uhhh having to drive up to LA always sort of womps. Always.

As was the peter pan collar DIY, also from Honestly WTF. Fashion Camp OC was nice enough to sponsor this DIY. They are a sweet little set up inside the Mart that offers sewing and fashion classes to style seekers of all ages. Right now they're doing kids and tween fashion day camp classes for the summer. Wish I could have been enrolled way back when...

LuLu*s was holding it down with their infamous wheel of prizes, Hayley from The Weekend File even won a $100 gift card (lucky!!) I spun and got a $10 off gift card which won't be going to waste ;-)

Ritual Wellness  made sure we didn't dehydrate from all of the fun having that was going on (thoughtful). Not pictured are the sweetest little cupcakes from Luscious Organic Desserts  and a cheese plate that I DID NOT GET TO CHOMP from The Cheese Shop at The Mix. I swear I glanced at the table, glanced back, and all that was left were crumbs.

Everyone hated these.


Just Kidding.  'lette macarons opened up a shop in Newport Beach recently and was nice enough to donate this macaron tower. Um whoever said macarons were over were dead wrong because these were out of control good. A huge hit to say the least.

  6. The greatest thing about this place was its interesting concept, and dare i say its sexy and seductive! The wood paneling makes the entire space feel warm and intimate. The seats are modern and comfortable.

*Had to turn word verification on (even though I personally hate it). I've been getting too many weird spambot comments lately :(
