Bloggers Unite through Two Point Oh! LA
Chatting with Tiara of LuxeDelux and Cirrus
Back in March, I attended the LA Fashion Week Two Point Oh! party that had rounded bloggers up in a a downtown bar to meet each other before the week’s fashionable festivities. It was a splendid opportunity to meet like-minded individuals who I was bound to meet up with at the other LA Fashion Week events and who, through Twitter, I’m happy to have stayed in touch with. Kelsi of Dedicated Follower of Fashion was the party organizer and to maintain the unity felt in March, she founded Two Point Oh! LA, the first official organization for LA fashion, style, and beauty bloggers. I immediately counted myself in, which means I’ll have a profile on the group’s Web site and will be invited to monthly events that will include workshops, promotions, and networked gatherings.
This past Saturday, my sister, Bec, and I attended the first annual picnic to launch Two Point Oh! LA in Griffith Park. It was great to see familiar faces like Neekoh of Live Love LA, Laurie of Laurie B Style, Sandra of Debutante Clothing, and Bren of So Much Pretty, as well as meeting new ladies like Alicia of Inny Vinny (though I felt like I already knew her since she had attended my virtual slumber party!), Cirrus of MUMM, Tiara of LuxeDelux, Hillary of Cake Not Coke, Tess of Treehouse Trunkshow, and Heather of LA Fashion Snob.
We left with heightened hopes for our blogger community (thanks, Kelsi!) and goody bags filled with products from XCVI, Modcloth, Forever 21, Reef, RGK D’Zines, Prometheus Cosmetics, Carolina Pad, Frosted Willow, REM Spring, Happy Joy Sticks, Dry Soda, Lightload Towels, and Clio Designs.
