Sac-town Ladies

Made in the Shade: Sacramento Fashion bloggers meet-up for cocktails at the Shady Lady.

I just wanted to share a quick post on last night's Sacramento fashion/style blogger meet up that took place at the Shady Lady. We meet for an after work cocktail at the best watering hole this side of well, almost anywhere. Angeline (The New Professional) and Keri (Headlines and Hemlines) staked out the booth, while three handfuls of lovely ladies piled in, introduced themselves and talked blogs, life and fashion. Some of the "old timers" were there, bloggers that met at the first Sacramento Fashion blogger meet up (click here/here for memory refreshment) and it was good to see Melody (It's All Happening), Jen (Wade & Associates), Lisa (Starship Narcissus) and Kari (Juniper James) all make the acquaintance of some of our newest members- the fabulous Ann (Annimal House), Erin (Bows & Sparrows) and two, count 'em TWO Teacher/Fashion bloggers- Sarah (Classroom Chic) and Tami (Teacher Goes Back to School.) Add that to Nikki (Lil Bits of Nik-Nak) and you have the headstart of an interesting new sub-genre of fashion bloggers. Speaking of new, a shout out to the brand new blogger, Bibi who came out to meet everyone. Bibi just started her fashion blog, Oh My Gatos! and it was nice to see a balanced mix of seasoned and starter blogs at the table. 

Sacramento Fashion Bloggers: I had such a great time ladies! Thanks for coming out, and let's plan on doing another meet-up soon. And if there are any Sacramento area bloggers that would like to be included in the group, shoot me a message via Facebook where we have a Facebook Blogger group set up just for this. Be sure to introduce yourself and share your blog url, and I'll be happy to add you to the group!
