I spent my Wednesday night at an exclusive shopping event sponsored by Chictopia in partnership with Crossroads Trading Co., American Apparel and other San Francisco local boutiques.
The event was held at the 111 Minna Gallery and I was excited to take a look at the items Crossroads would be debuting for spring. Guest bloggers Kathleen from Inspirafashion and Jessica from Happa Time were also there providing style advice to the first 50 guests to attend. I met Kathleen at the last Crossroads Shopping event and she is such a sweety. She looked great and I am sorry to not have a photo of her, but I am sure she will post her outfit on her blog. I met Jessica for the first time and she seems to be a real nice person too.

As you can see from my big bag, I found more than I expected. I am glad I sold some clothes last week and came in with some trade for the event. I feel I am doing a great job with my finances this month and staying sustainable by reselling clothes I don't wear and buying other people's unworn treasures.
I met a lot of people and overall had a great experience. It's refreshing to meet other bloggers who are making it in the fashion world doing what they love. I am loving these types of events where I meet people that are passionate about clothes, their jobs, or their interests. A big thank you to Crossroads for the invite and to Chictopia for hosting this wonderful event!
