The Style Collective: When a Community Says, “You’re Welcome Here.”

Happy Saturday, lovelies!

Almost two weeks ago, I had the pleasure of attending my very first meet-up as a new member of the Style Collective,  a community of female bloggers, and content creators. This event included Orange County and Los Angeles area members.

Held at Mesa in Orange County, the venue was fabulous! Irene Virbila of the LA Times, has said about Mesa, “I can’t think of another place in Orange County that has such an edgy look, eclectic crowd, and lusty food. Everybody loves a secret, and Mesa is a good one. Close your eyes and point at the one-page menu of small plates and you almost can’t go wrong.” 

You could feel the love as each sister was greeted with warm welcomes and hugs from the Style Collective community.

Style Collective Sister & Host, Debbie Savage

The host for the evening was Debbie Savage of To Thine Own Style Be True, who took the time to speak with each one individually.  What a wonderful spirit!  Kudos to her for putting together such a great event!  SC sister, Maria Guerrero of This Is How We Wear It, also flew in from San Jose, California with her hubby to help out.

All the ladies were given an amazing swag bag loaded with assorted goodies!  Beautiful centerpieces by Shawna Henrie of Bleudog Floral adorned the tables and in addition she served as the photographer Bleudog Fotography , providing headshots for all the ladies! She truly captured the essence of the evening!
