Many many weeks ago (cuz dear ol’ Ritzz has been quite backed up with posts), I was invited to a Toronto Blogger get-together and seminar by the lovely Brenda from SkinnyBish. A pot luck event, Brenda took the time to set an schedule to teach and motivate new and upcoming bloggers in the blogosphere. I definitely learned a few new tricks to use!
Some of the incredibly talented and well dressed ladies I met.
Brenda was gracious enough to share some of her marketing and blogging tips to us and even her photography expertise! Following the sessions and topics, we went outside for a mini photoshoot. Oh did we cause a scene!
Alison looked smokin’ in this gold little cut-out dress. The orange and turquoise stood out and looked incredible on her. She blogs over at Mookeh.
Amarachi is such a down-to-earth cutie. She is one of the writers for a site called www.aesirrepublic.com. It definitely helped me pack for my current trip!
And last but not least, the host, Brenda from SkinnyBish. She was the host and organizer of the weekend conference. Thank you so much for organizing such a useful day. You can read her post about it here.
I wore a bright floral number even on a rainy dark day. This vintage dress was from Value Village a few cities away and I got it for a steal, only $8! The back has a cut out (my hair is covering the top bit) and the length is perfect. I just need a little pettiecoat underneath for the perfect look.
The belt is vintage as is the wicker purse. My mom hated when I bought this from Value Village for $3. But It has got to be the cutest thing! My shoes are Steve Madden for $30 from a shoe store in the US and the most comfortable heels I own.
All in all it was a great day. Brenda did an amazing job capturing all the girl’s outfits who stayed behind. I hope to go to the next Toronto Bloggers event. If you’re a local blogger, comment below and I can keep you updated!
