Femme Fair 2018

If you follow me on Instagram then you were flooded with pictures and coverage live from Femme Fair not long ago. But if you’re not on “the gram,” then you’re probably wondering what the heck I’m talking about! Allow me to explain. Femme Fair is an all day affair where women across the Bay Area congregate to connect, empower, and shop! I was honored to participate in the second annual celebration and it was a HUGE success.

This insta-worthy event is packed with goodness. From the beautiful decor, sweets and treats, giveaways, to the VIP gift bags, everything is perfectly curated. All aesthetics aside, the company was my favorite aspect of the day. It is very exhilarating surrounding yourself with like-minded and driven #girlbosses! Speaking of, I gotta hand it to the founders for finding a panel so inclusive to women of all walks of life. “Together we bloom.”

Now about the shopping…15 bloggers (including myself) set up shop and played store for the day. After working in retail for almost a decade, it’s fun to get my “fix” once in a while. Femme Fair is a great place for it! It was very flattering seeing so many people genuinelly excited about my clothes. In fact, it gave me reassurance that my unique style is appreciated and that I’ve found my niche. A special thanks to my Instagram Husband for helping me prep and breakdown my booth!
