As I've mentioned on my last post, I was invited to the Fashion Industry Mixer last Wednesday at the Gerry Thomas Gallery. The event's purpose was "to help create community amongst industry professionals in Calgary by presenting a networking opportunity for boutique/business owners, stylists, models, designers, photographers and media."
Indeed, the event was a great opportunity for fashion industry people to greet and meet each other. I arrived there promptly at 7 pm together with another blogger/friend Amy. The venue was very "Sex and the City" gallery chic. There were photos and arts of several local artists, a DJ spinning some music and a bar filled with whatever drink you can imagine. The place was packed in a matter of minutes. Who knew fashion people are fashionably on time?
The event was pretty overwhelming. I was surprised to meet people who actually knew who I was, my blog site and what I'm all about. It was nice to be referred to as
"the girl with the messy hair" :)

It was nice catching up with my fellow Calgarian bloggers too! I haven't seen most of them in a loooong time! There were some PR people from Calgary too who are cooking up something exclusively for us Calgarian bloggers. YAY!!!
Went home giddy and just excited with the turn out of events that fateful Wednesday night--
both for the blog and my personal life.
Now, I can finally taste it and it tastes like cherry vodka! Yum!
NEXT EVENT: PARK FASHION SHOW on March 12
