DC on the street: “Walk the talk” 2013
Hello loves, I hope you all are enjoying this holiday season and taking some much needed time off! Recently I had the pleasure of attending this year’s Walk the Talk Exclusive Fashion Event held at Showroom 77. Hosted by Philly’s own Tweety Elitou and Syreeta Martin of “Sincerley Syreeta”, the Walk the Talk Exclusive Fashion Event is a social networking event for fashion insiders and VIP bloggers to socialize, shop, and get free shoes (yay). It has become one of Philadelphia’s most talked about affairs, pulling in many fashion stylists, designers and media from New York, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland and the Virgin Islands. The primary goal of the event is to gather fashion insiders so they can make connections in the fashion industry that will create great business ventures.
So, how was my experience? I’m glad you asked! First off, who doesn’t love being greeted at the front door with a goodie bag overflowing with hair/skin products? Second, I also received a fabulous pair of brand new pumps thanks to Shoe Republic LA! Guests were also surprised with TONS of giveaways, as a raffle took place every 15 minutes. Prizes from Diva Cup, Chandra jewelry, original artwork by Alexus Encarnado, O.P.I. nail polish, and Shea Butter body scrub just to name a few! Finally, as if all of the networking, giveaways, vending, & beautiful atmosphere wasn’t enough we all enjoyed the delicious creations of Young Cookinista! I am happy to inform you all that this event was truly worth braving the harsh weather to come attend. I finally got to meet some of my favorite bloggers and I made some wonderful connections. Here’s to next year’s event!
**Note: This event was moved to 12/15/13 due to harsh weather.
