Last month I attended the SoCal Social. There are many blogger conferences but this was so much better than a conference! Purely social! It was so fun to meet other local bloggers.
I got lucky and my Shabby Apple dress arrived the day before the social.
Shabby Apple sent me the Da Vinci dress to review (lucky me!!). Let me tell you, this one is so comfortable. It is a jersey knit. Just perfect for summer or with tights in winter. I really do love it. And not just because it was free. Though I do love free.
The only downside to the dress is the pocket is totally useless. That is NOT surprising because who wants anything in a pocket on your stomach. As if anyone needs more attention there. Ok, fine, I won't speak for you. Thank you to the lovely Michelle for taking this picture of me. Otherwise I'm sure I would have had to rely on someone under the age of 7 and my chances of a decent picture diminish.
I met so many great women but unfortunately I only have this picture! This always happens to me. I never take pictures like I should! I actually had the chance to meet up with Susan the night before the social and it was so great to finally meet the lady behind Living With Punks. Just love her!
We shopped and chatted and then heard from Marc Montano who was showing us his new book, The Big-Ass Book of Crafts 2 . And gave us all a copy. (yay!) It is a totally random, quirky craft book you'll find lots of fun (and some totally bizarre) decor crafts. It has glowing reviews if you are interested. I haven't done any of the crafts yet but it's worth it if that's your thing.
