 Hey loves! This past Tuesday night at CV Lounge in downtown NYC, I had an absolute blast at the first-ever Black Style Blogger's New York Fashion Week Tweet-Up planned by yours truly and Jared Michael Lowe of Lowefactor.com. To say I'm proud is an understatement. I'm elated! Being the first event of this magnitude that myself and Lowefactor have hosted, I was so overhwhelmed by all the love and positive feedback about the event. Here's what went down...

Fashion Week is the perfect time to mix ad mingle with industry folks that are all in one central place at one time for one thing - fashion. So what better way to promote unity in the community of AA fashion/style bloggers than with a fab event?
