This weekend I had the opportunity to attend Blog for a Day with J in Austin, Texas. The event was sponsored by The Unique Closet, an Austin based women’s clothing and accessory retailer, and Stay Bridge Suites. I had the pleasure of meeting the lovely J from J’s Everyday Fashion. Her mission is to teach women that they too can be fashionable at an affordable price.
The day started off with a meet and greet with the other fashion bloggers. J was nice enough to share her real life experience of creating a successful blog. The events agenda consisted of the following topics: creating your personal brand, marketing your blog, using social media communities, advertising, and blogging best practices. Alvin and Mallary Brown, owners of The Unique Closet, provided insightful information on how bloggers can build their brand through partnerships and sponsorships with retailers.
After enjoying a day filled with an abundance of information we were able to end with a shopping event with The Unique Closet and Stella and Dot, with J as our personal stylist.
Laura Beck from stripedshirt.com was gracious enough to provide each blogger a choice of a free striped shirt or cardigan. Of course I choose the stripe shirt.
Special thanks to my mom and cousin for accompany me on the road trip to Austin. My mom is my biggest cheerleader and always supports my endeavors. I’m truly blessed to call her mom!
