This is part II of my San Francisco Fashion Week recap! You can find Part I here.This is the outfit I wore to participate in the Fashion Bloggers Connect panel as a part of San Francisco Fashion Week. It’s another gorgeous dress from local designer Jenny Cheng and I balanced the strong silhouette with delicate jewelry from San Francisco-line Batsu Maru.
Hosting the Fashion Bloggers Connect panel was one of my favorite events of fashion week. I was joined by four other bloggers and the panel was moderated by funny and sassy Robyn Hagan Cain, editor of Racked SF. I enjoyed talking about my experience as a blogger (almost 8 years!) and also learning about different perspectives from the other bloggers. It was a little wild to be labeled a “fashion” blogger as my experience in front of the camera really just started a few months ago.

Something that struck me as unique about San Francisco Fashion Week was how the tech side of fashion was super prevalent. At the Fashion Blogger Connect event it seemed like everyone had a new app that they were developing to change the fashion industry. It was really interesting learning about all of them!
The runway shows were also amazing. It was my first time attending a runway show (newb!) and it was so much fun to sit front row!

There was something I liked about each different line, but by far my favorites were Maison Michel Ange and Apoteca. You heard it here first, they are going to be huge! I am also coveting the gorgeous coats from designer Anubha Srivastav.
