Last night, I attended See Jane Write‘s 5th Anniversary Party. See Jane Write is spearheaded by the one and only Javacia Harris Bowser. Javacia is a writer, a speaker, a feminist. She encourages other women to be the best versions of themselves be it through writing, business, or whatever it is that strike’s that woman’s fancy. She is a convener of minds, and last night was no exception.
The party brought together bloggers of all genre’s. I was even lucky enough to talk to Teresa TK Thorne, writer and author of a blog and multiple books! My dear friend Teresa Zuniga Odom of Southern Señora, won Ms. Thorne’s new book – Angel’s Gate – but as she already owned a copy, she kindly gifted the book to me. I was thrilled! Ms. Thorne was also kind enough to sign it!!
I learned about SJW when I first started as a blogger. It is comprised of so many things, but among them, a Facebook group and informational events/conferences. See Jane Write is where I got to learn from other bloggers, to share my own work, and to grow as a ‘fashion blogger’; particularly at a time when I had NO idea how to be one!
Congratulations See Jane Write! May these 5 years be the beginning of a long history of See’ing’ other Jane’s Write!
Oh, and of course…I had to share what I wore to the event. It was a completely last minute decision, but one that I’m glad I made! The dress and shoes are rather recent, though the clutch is sold out. I bought this dress in a small, but fits rather loosely, so know that the sizing is ‘oversized’. The shoes are true to size and not terribly uncomfortable to walk in. I left my house around 6:20pm and returned around 9:30pm and did not feel like I was ready to yank them off my feet when I got home. Good sign! Here are the deets should you decided to get pieces of this outfit for yourself!
Until next time! Stay ‘Chic’!
