NYFW: STL Fashion Bloggers Invade NYC

If you follow HU or ALIVE Magazine, you're probably well aware that a crew of savvy STL fashion bloggers hit up Manhattan for NYFW. Just thought you should meet those lovely gals and hear what they had to say about NYFW.

 Meet Emily.
"Going to New York Fashion Week has alwasy been a dream of mine.  I guess you can say it was something to check off of my bucket list.  I love everything about the idea of Fashion week; the street style, the new collections, the activity, I want to be in the middle of it all.  It's just so inspiring to be surrounded by people with the same passion as you."

"Some people think or tell me "Oh, I don't really understand what you are trying to do with your blog" and I don't blame them really.   I don't expect people to understand what I am trying to do with it, I just want people to understand what I am doing with it, and that is following my dream and expressing my creative outlet. We all have our things, and fashion and creativity, that is mine."

 Meet Danica.
"I've always closely followed spring and fall fashion weeks in NewYork and knew I had to attend. Then, I met Lindsay and she told me stories about her experience there and I realized I could do it too!"

"The highlight of my trip was seeing the Monique Lhuillier show. It was spellbinding. There wasn't a look that I wasn't pining over and the color palette and silhouettes were to die for."

Meet Brittany.
 "I'm always in for an opportunity or an adventure I haven't taken before, so there was no way I was going to say no when the topic was brought up. I'm also a newbie to blogging, and the new knowledge I was sure to acquire by going to NYFW was way too enticing. Knowing it would make me a better blogger, or at the very least show me if I even wanted to keep pursuing fashion in some capacity at all, sealed the deal."

"It really changed my perspective in every sense. I've always been a little... 'edgy' might be a nice way to put it, and felt like I needed to reign it in to please my blogging audience, or to not visually offend those around me (haha). My trip made me feel like I need to let my fashion freak flag fly! Blog-wise, a lot has already been done, so I need to focus on being my most authentic self, and the rest will follow. I can only be me. I can't find an audience that's already been found.Fashion-wise, getting dressed should be fun! It should be reflection of who I am, and to tone it down or bottle it up would be a travesty!"

I encourage you to visit Fox & Gypsy and Lace & Dagger. If you want to meet the girls in person (along with 17 other fashion bloggers), make it out to Clr-Mnstr and Blue Bird Apparel and the intersection of 13th Street at Washington Avenue on Friday, March 22nd. Get the details and RSVP here.
