Last Saturday I was invited to attend an event held by WhatIWear.com.
The event was for selected Sydney fashion bloggers to get to know each other and meet the people behind the site. The main aspect of the event was to communicate the type of community WhatIWear.com are aiming to portray through their new website. It was an opportunity for fashion bloggers to come together to share their insights and knowledge about all things fashion related.
In light of the event, they had given us colours to dress for the occasion; orange, black and white. Orange is not a colour I wear often, it was once a colour I hated, but has since grown on me.
It was truly refreshing walking into Guylian’s Café in Darling harbour (where the event was held) and seeing all these intimidatingly beautiful bloggers painted in the themed colours. Knowing that I’d be meeting other fashion bloggers, I have to admit, before the event I spent quite some time thinking about what to wear (hehehe).
But after meeting everyone, the nerves had settled and I realised that it was refreshing to converse with other fashion bloggers who shared the same interests. Being new to the blogging scene, I sometimes question if I’m doing it right or if I should be doing things differently. However, after speaking with the more experienced bloggers (some with three years under their belt), it was reassuring to know that after all their years of experience, they too have their doubts.
On the day, I wanted to showcase an outfit that was my usual quirky and fun style. I wore a simple black dress over a long sleeve floral top with a black contrast peter pan collar. To make the colour of the top pop, I teamed the outfit with orange socks and cream brogues. To top it off, I accessorised with a black bowler hat.
I was so lucky to meet all these new fashion bloggers based in Sydney, and it was great to know that we could still stay in touch through different types of social media.
This experience, meeting fashion bloggers, sharing common interests and finding people alike who love fashion is the type of community you’ll find on WhantIWear.com
