[event recap] COCKTAILS & COUTURE Beauty Blogger Event 2013

FINALLY! NYFW is over. Please expect to be overloaded with trend posts, event recaps, and of course my photo diary of the week. This year I scaled back on the actual runway shows (I let the intern go… SIKE, I totally just skipped) and I decided to do more networking, aka free cocktails and finger foods.

Each year I make sure I attend Cocktails And Couture. My DMV homie, Lianne Farbes is great for providing a much needed getaway from the chaos of Lincoln Center, and it’s always a blogger reunion. But this time Lianne added a conversational element to her event.

After the panel, the bloggers let loose and we kinda acted a fool. But hey, we work hard all year and a part of Fashion Week’s greatness is getting together will all of the bloggers you only chat with on social media.
