Our handsome bartender

On Tuesday night we kicked off LA Fashion Council’s Fashion Week with a little cocktail party at stylehaus.  Champagne was served along with delish hors d’oeuvres, and LA’s most stylish citizens were dressed to the nines to celebrate the beginning of Fashion Week at The Grove.

Bethany and Constance chatting it up

The best part of the night was chatting with some of LA’s foremost bloggers, authors, and style authorities about the imminent LA Fashion Week shows and their thoughts on the latest trends.  Constance Dunn, author of Practical Glamour, talked to us about fashion as a way of presenting yourself to the world- we loved her take on personal style as your “business card”!

Blogger TLVBirdie came all the way from Tel Aviv to attend LA Fashion Week, and we were so glad to discover her & her blog, which is full of artsy shots of her signature blue hair.

We’re planning on stealing your headband, Wendy…watch out.

Our fave look of the night was Wendy’s (of Bendoni Style) fab gold headband.  Just plain glam!

Although the attendees showed off a mix of styles and looks, there was one common accessory that the bloggers all toted around: a personal photographer!  No fashion blog is complete without one, right?
