Blogger Meet-Up at 28 Degrees

I am so far behind on my blogging! Since my folks are out of town, I wish I could say it’s because I’ve been living it up and partying. But really, I’ve been doing exactly what I do when they’re home- work, gym, dinner, cat snuggling, and now watering their plants. Which I mention only because it takes about 45 minutes to water all of their plants. I feel like this is kind of absurd, right? Right.

These pictures are from last Wednesday. Kinsey M. took on the impressive task of organizing a blogger get-together just because. It was a great time, filled with wonderfully dressed women (and men). My only regret was not meeting some of the bloggers there I didn’t recognize. Actually, no. My regrets were:

  • Wearing brand new shoes with breaking them in (more on that)
  • Not eating every single piece of food that 28 Degrees provided because it was deeeelicious
  • Not taking more photos of the lovely crowd

I wore a dress from Complex Geometries that was a big crowd-pleaser. Complex Geometries specializes in dresses and tanks in thick jersey that are made to be wrapped, twisted, and artfully thrown over your body. One dress can be worn in a dozen different ways just by draping it differently. The belt is a random find at H&M. I gave in to my leopard desires and got the heels from Steve Madden. About an hour before the meet-up. I sized up, thinking room for an insole was smarter than squeezing my tired feet into new shoes. I was wrong, even with an insole and 2 pairs of heel grips the shoes were a little too big. Oh, and they made my feet go numb. I had to give up and put on my flat sandals after 20 minutes. However, like a squirrel faced with a closed garbage bin, I am nothing if not persistent. I will break these shoes in. Or break my feet trying. They’re so pretty!

Melissa from Crunches for Cupcakes and Natalie from Wishful Nals. Aren’t they adorable?

Michele from Michele’s Musings, Shanna from Shanna’s Eye View, and Kristen from The Boston Fashionista. All hilarious, smart, and wildly entertaining!

Naomi and Lani from Mon Petit Chou Chou. They are both putting me to shame with their tans (and awesome makeup).

Shoes from the end of the night (and my flats!) Julie from Orchid Grey was wearing the most intensely pink sandals ever. it was love at first sight. Clockwise from Julie is Holly, myself, Amy from The Swapaholics, and Marissa.


I promise, loads more posts coming up this week!

    Oh, I am so glad someone took photos – these are great! I also don’t think I realized how awesome your dress was while we were inside – it’s really gorgeous. Good luck with the shoes – they are totally worth all the drama.

    Love the dress! Which Complex Geometries dress is it?

    • A Stylized Hysteria August 12, 2011, 1:18 am

      Thank you! It’s the laval tank dress, which is a couple seasons old. I got it recently from prive.com.
