blogger party!

Last night was Saint John's first blogger meet-up. It was a chance for bloggers who write about some aspect of fashion- whether it be personal style, lifestyle, photography, hair, or design- to gather together and, for some, meet for the 1st time in person. And what better than an opportunity to drink, eat, and be merry all while amongst beautiful shoes?

Huge thank you to the fabulous Urban Shoe Myth for hosting our blogger party last night. And great thanks to the chef extrordinaire Jesse Vergen and Peter Stoddart of the Alehouse for sponsoring our gathering with some beautiful spreads to feast upon!

The Urban Shoe Myth: 78 King Street
Did you know that you too could host your own shoe shopping party?

Blogger gathering, beautiful shoes, and one stylish mannequin (dressed in Je Suis Prest!)

Bloggers chatting over punch and deliciously prepared food from the Saint John Ale House

2 planks of tastey food prepared
(Some of those veggies are right from Jesse's own garden!)

My favourite shoes at the Urban Shoe Myth (ok, so I couldn't pick just one..or two!):
1. Nine West | 2. Steve Madden | 3. Stuart Weitzman
4. Kenneth Cole | 5. Miz Mooz | 6. Dolce Vita
7. Minnetonka | 8. Frye | 9. Born
I tried #6 on- now on my wishlist- & already have #9 on lay-away.
