Happy Monday, folks!
This past Saturday, I drove down to Philly in a Toyota Corolla for my very first Conversations with Claire event!
While we’ve been doing Cocktails with Claire for years, Conversations with Claire are more intimate events where we can just sit, sip, and chat about The Bomb Life, career, and fashion!
We welcomed dozens of Philly Bombshells to Indigo Bleu Design Center to sip Luc Belaire mimosas, nosh on finger foods, and fellowship!
Part 1 of the event was a conversation led by Power 99 Philly’s Mina Say What. We touched on everything from how to start a blog to how to navigate difficult relationships.
After a brief Q&A, I said greeted everyone and signed copies of The Bomb Life.
Of course you guys came dressed to impress!
Event Sponsor @AmourLaVie from Lys Boutique looked super cute in a red top and striped pants from her store.
Bombshell alert! Designer Shavonee Deanne and bloggers Dayna Dane and Rocky were on deck in cute looks. Yes hair, yes skin!
Vendor Sherron from @Lace_Wine showcased her wares while rocking a bedazzled tee.
A Topshop romper and a dapper suit were on hand for these fly attendees.
Friends who slay together, stay together! These girlfriends stood out from the crowd in poppin capes, velvet tops, and embellished pants.
And these stylistas showed off Spring’s hottest accessories: smiles, Fashion Bomb Daily gift bags, and copies of The Bomb Life book!
As for me…
I grabbed a pic with Philly designer Marquette, who designed the dress I wore for my book cover and also designed the velvet number I chose for the day!
I have mad love for Philly! I also took a flick with Mah Jing Wong and his lovely wife.
And a Philly trip would not be complete without Bombshell and designer Iris Barbee Bonner of These Pink Lips!
I smiled with my sister, Dee Dee, who did an amazing job with social media coverage (she killed it on Snapchat and IG stories, didn’t she?)
Grabbed a flick with my gorgeous cousins.
Then ended my picture blitz with my event planners, Bombshells Victoria and Christina.
After the event, I jumped back into the Toyota and made my way back to Brooklyn! It was such a great time. I love meeting you guys and am so thankful for your support!
You guys are absolutely beautiful! You rock!
At any rate, our next Conversations with Claire will take place this coming Saturday at Nesh New York, with a conversation moderated by June Ambrose. Sadly, it is 100% sold out, but not to fear! We will be having Cocktails with Claire x Ty Hunter in NYC on May 13th.
Until then, it is still Philly Fashion Week on the site. Stay tuned for todays’s Bombshell and Bomb Product from the city of brotherly love. See more pix in the gallery above.
