Vancouver Blogger Meetup 2.0

April 25, 2011
Considering all the fun we had on our last blogger meetup, we were all more than eager to arrange a Blogger Meetup Version 2.0.  After sending dozens of emails back and forth in an effort to decide upon a place and time, we finally settled on Chill Winstons on Easter Sunday!
There was just as much wine sipping, blogger chit-chat, and laughs as last time, but we also had the special addition of the beautiful Alicia of aliciafashionista to our group!  For those of you who didn’t read the last post, along with Alicia our group now contains the hilarious and warm Lynn of Hearted Girl, the incredibly elegant and lovely Cee of Coco and Vera, the talented and stunning Veronika of Girl and Closet, and me…the weird and inappropriate Alexandra of To Vogue Or Bust.  We’re definitely hoping to make this a monthly event, so any other Vancouver bloggers who’d be interested in coming, please get in touch with one of us!

Above all things, being a fashion blogger takes a lot of commitment, and in order to make that commitment, you need to be pretty passionate about what you do.  While all of us are passionate about fashion, it is the girls’ little areas of expertise that I find makes them so unique and interesting: Cee is a voracious reader and incredible writer (we had our moment talking about John Steinbeck’s East of Eden…to say that I am obsessed with that book and its musings on life and free will is an understatement), Lynn loves graphic design and is incredibly well-versed and passionate about all things related to spirituality, Veronika is an absolutely incredible photographer and has a background in modelling, and finally, Alicia handles the more business-sided aspect of the fashion industry in her normal day job and also loves photography and music.  
So as you can see, the fact that our get-togethers stretch into five hour sittings is understandable when you consider the company present!  It’s pretty funny how people who share common passions can bond and grow close so quickly.  I already feel like I know these girls so well and seriously love spending time with all of them, and we’ve only all met up twice now! If you haven’t already checked out these wonderful ladies’ blogs, please do!  You will love each and every one of them.

    I'm so happy you girls included me, I also feel like I've known all of you forever! Can't wait until our next date, hopefully it will be warm and sunny 🙂 Your pics turned out really well too, you're so good for blogging it right away. I predict it'll take me a few days to get around to it lol. Thanks for your sweet words Alexandra 🙂

    We so did have a moment, didn't we? That Steinbeck. What I wouldn't give to have been able to meet him 🙂 It was so much fun to get together with you girls again, and I think your post immortalises the afternoon perfectly. I know one day you'll really be working at Vogue, or some other fabulous glossy publication and I'm happy to know I'll be able to say, "I knew her when she was a blogger!" 😀 Also, I just have to tell you, your yellow skirt with that purple top and turquoise flats was just a brilliant combination. I intend to imitate it shortly (and give you due credit, of course!) Much love, my literary friend.

    Wow, two comments in one day!? haha sorry for the overload! I just had to comment though- this looks like it was so much fun! I miss my blogger meet-ups in MB- there's something so perfect about meeting other fashion/blogging/art obsessed ladies that makes you feel like you belong.

    Being new to the city, if you guys are looking to expand the Vancouver meet-up I'd love to meet all of you! xx

    Alexandra, SO lovely (hehe our word) to read about this day from your point of view, you are such a beautiful writer. Love how your thoughts and words flow so eloquently. I just adore our monthly meet ups, it's so great to be able to talk blogs with you girls and drink wine & eat fab appy's -of course!! Can't wait for the next one.

    I truly had such an awesome day. I'm giggling over the fact that we are all SO camera crazy!! And what a fashionable bunch… I was SO inspired by everyone's sense of personal style. Hope your having a fantastic week.

    Hi Alexandra! Boy, these blogger hang-outs are seriously making me feel left out! lol..just kidding. But I wish I could be there! All these girls are so wonderful and I love reading their blogs! You look so beautiful as always, and I love the denim jacket paired with your yellow pleated skirt! You're so right about fashion blogging…it takes enormous amount of time and energy to maintain one. But the relationships and friendships that come from sharing our passions and interests are well worth it!

    P.S. I ate a bunch of chocolate bunnies last weekend and I'm stuffed, haha 🙂 xoxoxoxo

    You ladies are all so lucky! Blogger meetups must be one of the most rewarding things to come out of blogging. I wish the network in my city was big enough to organise one 🙂

    And you all look stunnings!

    oh my gosh, that photo of Alicia in front of our very own Vancouver Flat Iron is ahhhh-mazing! i love them all Alex, you not only have the keen fashion sense going on but also wield a camera like nobodies bidness AND keep us all on track with our order arrangements. i actually would like to meld a bit of you into the boyf if at all possible, you are like the perfect date!

    it was a batch of fun filled laughter that i'm missing already, can't wait till next time. xo ♥
