I recently got the opportunity to attend a blogger networking event hosted by Create & Cultivate and Roxy. This was my first ever event to attend so it was a bit nerve racking to know all the ins-n-outs. And on top of that, what was I going to wear?!! Here is my guide for you to have a successful blogger event to best showcase, well you!!
1. BE TRUE TO YOUR BRAND
If your blog's number one goal is to share affordable fashion, do not show up in high priced designer clothing. This will completely confuse other brands you are trying to work with, fellow bloggers, and whoever you come in contact with at the event. In my case I chose items that are all under $100 and true to my blog and what I am trying to portray.
2. ONE STATEMENT PIECE
Pick one piece whether it is a print, style, or shape that is currently on trend to showcase within your look. This shows that you are up to date on the current world and what is new. I chose this adorable leopard clutch since animal prints are so "in" right now!
3. BE COMFORTABLE
If those super high heels hurt, then ditch them for a cute strappy pair of sandals. You need to feel comfortable in what you are wearing to make the best impression. I chose jeans and wedges so that I could be comfortable, yet chic, all night.
4. EASY ACCESS CLUTCH/CROSS BODY
Make sure that the bag you choose to bring is easy to access in order to grab and hand out as many business cards as possible when talking to potential collaborations or just networking with fellow bloggers. Having to dig around in a large purse can be frustrating to not only you but your contact. I chose an easy flip-open clutch for this event.
