Do Fashion Bloggers Meet Up With Each Other? (Fashion Blog Post)

Fashion bloggers meeting up with each other -- does it actually happen?

Hell if I know.

But I know I did. For the first time.

Meet Bella.

Seattle Fashion Bloggers Meet Up

Seattle fashion blogger, 40+ and proud of it, trend setter, go-getter, and the author of The Citizen Rosebud -- Bella in a nutshell.

When she's not hanging out with her boy or working at her vintage store, she's dreaming up her next outfit.

What will it be today, Bella? Bearing it all in a Betty Boop-inspired halter, or wrapping yourself comfortably in a 20-something-year old sweater? 

With Bella, it's always a surprise. 

A pleasant surprise.

And that's why I love her blog.

Because Bella always surprises me.

You see, fashion bloggers get along because they have something quintessentially passionate to talk about -- blogging. 

During my conversation with Bella about blogging, I slightly noted that the reason why I stopped reading some bigger blogs is because they became so blah -- too goody two-shoe, too afraid to offend the masses, and too little of their own opinions

A growing audience means more people to please, I suppose.

"Personality!" I said, "they lack personality."

Not with Bella's blog though. She's all kinds of personality there.

In both fashion and writing.

And that's why I love her blog.

Find her in full bloom on The Citizen Rosebud.

Where's the fashion, girlie?

Oh yes. How can I forget.

Being a mom, simplicity is key. Bella described it best: I'm a minimalist.

I had no idea.

My outfit consisted of a long, solid top over dark skinnies. On my feet were Mocassin flats

It was a subtle and wearable attire -- perfect for meeting up at the cafe.

 By the way, Bella, I and baby J met up at Fresh Flours in Phinney Ridge - an excellent little cafe.


Hey Bella, if you are reading this, next danish is on me.


  Happy Hump Day!


Are you a Seattle Fashion Blogger too? Bella and I connected through a FB group called Seattle Style Bloggers lead by Lindsay of Lindsay Living.

It's a cozy little group, if you want to join.

  8. That's so great! I would love to meet another fashion blogger. You know when you start accidentally getting into a convo about blogging and the person you're talking to starts to zone out because they don't blog? haha, It happens too often.
