WOW. I can’t believe three weeks have passed since my last post. My schedule has been kinda crazy lately. I’m going through some work transitions and haven’t had any time to shoot any new content. I wanted to write about the blogger brunch I attended this past Saturday. It was hosted by Shopcade. For those of you who don’t know, Shopcade is a personal shopping app. To put it simply, it’s similar to Instagram to where you can upload an outfit pic and similar to Pinterest to where you can create boards or “lists”. You can like, want, share, and even shop your favorite looks or products all in one place. They even have special deals with certain brands and designers. It’s super fun and makes it convenient for us fashion addicts to do all our trend stalking in one place. Anyway, I’ve become an LA correspondent for Shopcade and I’m super excited to start using this app more.
The brunch was really fun. I invited Ellen and Hieu, both of whom I met through Instagram. I never thought I’d be the type to meet people on the internet but I’ve been hanging out with them more lately and they are two of the raddest girls I’ve ever met! Anyway, I carpooled with Hieu. We had mimosas in our hands within a minute of arriving (off to a good start). Shortly after, we were approached by so many different people. I have to admit, at first I was a little overwhelmed. This was my first blogger event and I was kind of nervous, but I got to meet and talk to so many people in such a short amount of time. I got interviewed by Chanelle from The Penelope Times and got to chat with Judy from Vogue Villain. I also got a chance to meet Hoon, the creative director of Shopcade and the person who invited me to the brunch! After that, brunch was served. Hieu, Ellen, and I ate and had to dip because all three of us had to be in Newport for the MYVL shoot. I was pretty bummed we had to take off so early, but had such an awesome time over all.
That following Monday, I met up with Hoon, Judy, and Chanelle at Lemonade in Larchmont to have lunch. It’s been so much fun getting to connect with people outside of my circle. Getting to meet new people and hear their stories was the cherry on top of a great weekend. Here are some photos from the blogger brunch and Monday’s lunch (taken with my crappy cell phone camera).
