Last week, fashion blogger Jessica Quirk came to San Francisco to promote her new book, What I Wore: Four Seasons, One Closet, Endless Recipes for Personal Style. Azalea Boutique and Shop It to Me threw her a book party, complete with tiny cupcakes and champagne, and the city's fashion bloggers arrived in style to meet her. Quirk runs a very popular version of the usual "what I wore" blog formula, posting daily photos and descriptions of her outfits. She usually includes the occasion for the outfit, a touch most bloggers overlook and I really appreciate. Her book walks fashionistas-in-training through the process of creating their dream wardrobes, complete with illustrations.
But even better than meeting Quirk and finally getting a peek at her book was meeting the women who follow her blog. I was so inspired by all the lovely ladies who turned out for the event. I want to befriend them so I can borrow their clothes. Check out whose closets I'll be raiding after the jump.
I'm excited to see maxiskirts replacing maxidresses. Maxidresses tend to have a laid-back hippie vibe that isn't particularly flattering. Maxiskirts, however, add a touch of definition in the waist that makes all the difference. I saw a lot of them that night, and this is my second-favorite (you'll see my all-time favorite later). The color is gorgeous, especially against the pink tank. Also, look at the little gold bow on the belt! Cute!
