Style Social - No. 14 Boutique

If you follow Yes, Wear That on Instagram, you have probably seen some of the wonderful photos from the first ever Style Social.  Hosted at the totally chic No. 14 Boutique in Lawrenceville, Style Social was designed to be a classy meet-up of local fashion bloggers and media professionals.  Two things I have noticed since I started blogging: 1. There are way more people with blogs in Pittsburgh than I ever imagined.  2.  There aren’t really any groups in place for these bloggers to meet and share ideas.  So like any Type-A dreamer, I decided if there wasn’t a group, I would just create one.  Lucky for me, I had recently connected with three other like-minded ladies, who all shared my vision for creating a fashion blogger community in Pittsburgh.  After a few long e-mails and a couple of meetings (over wine of course), the first Style Social was born.  My lovely friend Ashley of Afternoon Espresso, suggested holding the event at No. 14 Boutique – and the owners Brianne and Michelle could not have been more gracious – even offering a special shopping discount to our guests!  If you haven’t been into this boutique yet – you must go – like now.  And take your camera because it’s a Pinterest dream!  Honestly, I could not be more proud of the work and creativity of our little team and of the way the event turned out.  Guests sipped champagne and a signature “Fourtini,” sampled various appetizers including decadent homemade cupcakes, and competed in an Instagram competition for a lovely prize!  My favorite part of the evening was watching so many talented women mix, mingle, and share ideas.  It was like all these ladies I have followed on Instagram came to life and were walking and talking right in front of me!  The goal of the night was to foster collaboration and creativity – which you think might be difficult in the fashion and blogger worlds.  However, I can say with certainty, that I made more than a few friends that evening and am confident that the next Style Social will be even more fun! 

Thank you so much to the talented Leandra Voyten of K Lux Photography for the gorgeous photos!  @l_marieg
