My First Blogger Event

Gap blogger event selfie 1 {whoisthatgirlMo?}

Last night I attended my first blogger related event at Gap Union Square in San Francisco. I was invited from a blogger meetup group and decided to go and see what the fuss is all about. I dragged Mel along with me which was cool because there was free wine for everyone as well as a live DJ and free mini manicures. I honestly think that was the main reason for me sending in my RSVP. I mean wine does help to make one more sociable. :-)
I forgot to bring my camera so my photos are from my iPhone which I shamelessly used to take plenty of selfies in almost every mirror on the second floor. I just need to figure out how to correctly hold the phone though. :-/

The event was in partnership by Lookmazing which is a social network for anyone to share their personal style photos to be admired and shopped. It's similar to the liketk.it that many style bloggers are using on Instagram but it's used for both fashion and beauty.

After grabbing a glass a wine, I signed up for Lookmazing through Facebook on an iPad and was then ushered around by a stylist to find Gap items to create a look for my photoshoot. The first stylist was a male and he kept repeatedly telling me that I was tall. He had a hard time trying to find clothes that fit me well. I honestly believe that he wasn't used to styling someone with my shape and height. He did settle for an okay look and on the way to take the photos, Charlotte, a fabulous Gap team member stole me away from him because I was "her girl" and no one should be styling her girl. She immediately knew my size and what would work best for my frame. Charlotte styled me in an awesome pair of bleached denim, a striped blazer and a striped oxford shirt. She added a scarf and pink bag for my accessories and I wore my own boots. After being instructed on how to pose, the photoshoot was so much fun that I let her style me in another look. For the second look I wore dark wash skinny jeans, navy tweed moto jacket, long white tunic, and navy oxfords. I love oxfords! I think deep down she knew what I liked too. Charlotte also used a scarf with this look.

  1. Selfie is def an art that I need to master as well. I think I would go pretty much anywhere is there was free wine available. :)

  2. That looks like such a fun event! I'm glad someone else styled your look since it sounds like that guy didn't know what he was doing!

  3. Awww--- I love a good blogger event (alas, I haven't had the opportunity to partake in any since moving to Singapore… :( ) Anyways, Charlotte did a great job at styling you. I love that while Gap is all about the basics styling them can really make them your own….

  25. Wine and clothes is a winning combination. I have never attended a blogger event. One of the huge downsides to living in a tiny little town so far away from everything.
