There’s hoping! When Lexie invited me to attend Digitally Chic’s Summer Fling at the San Francisco W, I couldn’t refuse the offer. Described as an event to mix and mingle with SF fashion nerds and techies, discussing trends and tech topics while sipping delicious cocktails, what person would resist such an opportunity?!! Certainly, not I, since I might even consider myself a bit of a fashion freak….
The only place I felt I failed in preparation, was in showing up in a vintage blouse, my favorite Top Shop navy blazer with dark Theory skinny denim and camel color ankle booties. I should have maybe dressed according to theme with some great, flirty, colorful pieces– maybe a killer neon and white pairing or a fabulous peach and fuchsia color block dress…but no. Since I had other meetings before this event, I chose to dress less radically and went for a more conservative look. This photo was taken right outside the Academy of Arts University, where Lexie and I were scouting for sf street fashion inspirations (that post will come later!). So back to the event at the W….
The ladies behind Digitally Chic are Ashley Gustafson, Natalie Grinnell and Angelica Benjamin. Aren’t they adorable? They host fashion/tech events every month, so I am super excited to spend more time with them and their friends!
The event was great! We met some really wonderful and inspiring people, and I am happy to share with you who they are and what they are doing.
I met a lovely fashion blogger named Cheryl van den Berg who has an amazing style blog called Oh to Be a Muse. She just moved to the Bay Area with her tech hubby so they were the perfect Digitally Chic pair.
