admit it, we love meeting these larger than life online presences in person. add champagne, clothes, delish snacks plus music and you seriously can’t go wrong. nordstrom had their first designer tweet-up last week, and if tweets are any measure, i’d say it was a success. Read more →

have i mentioned what a treat it was to get to meet a whole bunch of new bloggers, and there by get to know some new blogs. i thought i had, but here’s another- one must shock the bourgeois. and i might have been a little green with envy of her chartreuse coat… it’s lovely!

i would be remiss not to do a round up of all the bloggers who mentioned our meetup. we were glad to have you, happy you came, and so many of you creatively expressed your thoughts of the night. thank you! if you weren’t mentioned, send me a note, and i’ll add you in! next event- spring 2010!

From needle+thread

first up- the lovely rebecca- my co-host and THE clothes horse did a great write up (AND managed to be better at taking photos than my ADD self), you should check it out.

From needle+thread

next- the magpie. after reading her post… i felt that she got the gyst of what i went after when dreaming up what this party could be, and that was community. i love her nimble collages (mine take forever, so i’m less likely to make them) and her juxtaposition of pretty fonts/words and the comprehensive rundown. nice. and thank you!  you’ll see a picture of her later this week.

From needle+thread

hey pretty thing took a photo and posted about the meetup- thank you!  i’m not sure that we met, but congrats on winning one of the giveaways!

From needle+thread

kristina from beauty revolution magazine blog brought mike adams to photograph, and it was so great to see what was going on all over the boconcept showroom- love the images they were able to capture of the event, thank you mike and kristina!

it was super fun to come across this link from visualtypenoise, thanks for the video antonio! (i’m assuming that’s your name, it was on the belt buckle, and i didn’t come across your card!)

From needle+thread

fashion for nerds made it, even with a cold. great to meet you and glad you liked the party!

i’m kidding.  kind of.  i had a room full of favourites… and i was such trash at taking pictures that night.  i think it was the nerves.  but it was nice to see some friendly faces, i might even go so far as laughing faces… mr. e. dandy makes me smile.  he’s such a doll.  i wish i had taken a picture of everyone who made me smile… we’d have posts for the next month…

p.s. i believe emerald dandy’s site is unavailable due to renovations… but check back.  i’ll put the link up as soon as it’s available.

blogmeetblog – a picture an hour – event day

first off… let me start by saying… rebecca (my co-host) does rad picture an hour posts… i totally stole this idea.  now that my disclaimer is out of the way… i want to say how excited i was on friday… to meet everyone, to have a great event… to do our sponsors proud and show them that a blog event is grassroots marketing.  and what better way to show my excitement than to go to work and wander around taking pictures… i kid.  but i was at work for a lot of this day (something has to support my lavish blogger ways!- that’s a joke, i’m lacking in the lavish gene) and when i finally got to leave work… it was lots of last minute running around, comfort crisis (i for some reason had zero impetus to dress up) and then a mad dash to get it all together before bloggers started walking in… i thought it went off well, but it could NOT have happened without-

amazing friends who pitched in last minute- served and checked- i owe you major, and i know it.
boconcept– great space!!  what’s a party without an amazing space to mingle, mix and relax?
mike’s hard lemonade– thanks for trying out your product with us!  can’t wait for your tweetup!
trophy cupcakes– are you kidding me? a 3 week no bread streak was broken.  it was worth it.
dry soda– my new soft drink of choice, and the best non-alcoholic beverage! special sparkly.
qdoba– i loved seeing people at the party eating tacos.  it was perfect.
hazel salon– the ladies from hazel offered gift cards and samples. thank you!
tigerbeat– great tunes make for a great scene.  i love this boy’s mixes.
gems– offered jelly bellies to our party-goers… sweet!
moo cards– i have a promo code for moo if you want free cards… drop me a line.
shopruche– a giveaway and a discount. drop me a line for 10% off.

and finally… all the amazing bloggers who attended.  it was great to meet in person, it was great to hear you enjoyed yourself, and it was worth all the work of putting together a night that was so thoroughly enjoyed.  we’ll have to do it all again!  xoxo- n+t
