On Wednesday I had the privilege of attending the Get In The Mix event for OC Fashion Bloggers hosted by Shout PR. Just when I was starting to wonder if there were any fashion blogger events in OC, Shout PR creates one! Pure genius I tell you! Because I think there are plenty of fashionistas here in the OC and we have a such large community to do it so why not? Plus, it sure beats having to drive to LA through the insane traffic (yes, ask anyone: it's insane).
Breatheeee. Are you ready now for picture overload of this AMAZING fashion bloggers event? Don't say I didn't warn you (it's lots and lots of pictures)...see below and enjoy!

Organic mini cupcakes created by Luscious Organic Desserts
These macarons from Lette Macarons were so yummy and there were so many flavors!
Ritual Wellness supplied delicious watermelon berry refreshments
Got to make a cool DIY wrap bracelet (will show pics in future posts). Oh yeah, we busted out our craftsmanship!
O-M-G Lulu's Clothing had so many COOL prizes for their spin-the-wheel challenge!
In fact, me AND Jud both won a free item from Lulu's ~ how awesome and rare is that? We totally don't win things at these wheel spinning stuff so this was a sweet surprise.
Lulu's had so much cute stuff that we had trouble deciding our free prizes. I mean, how can you choose just one thing from a rack full of clothes and a table filled with summer handbags?
Decisions, decisions. It was so hard for me to decide between these two fabulous pieces! I eventually went for the green lace jacket but might end up buying the pink blush dress from their website now. Hey, why not have both right? Jud ended up picking this gorgeous black & white dress seen here.
There was also a raffle with prizes of outfits from Willow & Clay, BB Dakota, Black Sheep, Matty M, & ...Lost for Her. We didn't win anything from the raffle but it's okay, we were already more than happy with our Lulu's gifts.
I also ran into Armilyn & La Tasha from the OC Fashion Association! I met them last year when I was competing in the Student Design Competition for OC Fashion Week (where I placed Top 5, see pics here) so it was great to see them again.
Photo booth time with fellow OC bloggers! Of course we had to check this out! Aren't photo booth pics the best? It's so fun to be silly and you get a keepsake to take home with you right away. What's not to love?
Erika from Shout PR was so sweet and I just adore her!
It was a blast meeting other SoCal bloggers in the OC! I reunited with old friends and made some new ones. Luckily I had my +1 Jud as my date who was also my amazing photographer for the night (unfortunately my camera broke down & stopped working so some of my pics are from my camera phone which isn't the best but it worked).
***SPECIAL THANKS to Erika, Ashley from Milk Teeths (such a doll!), and the Shout PR team for putting together such a fun-filled night! I can't wait til the next OC fashion bloggers event! :D
