If girl power, drinks, shopping, and the best chocolate cupcakes you’ve ever had sounds like heaven to you then, your heaven is Femme Fair! This was their second year putting this together and I'm here to give you a break down so you know not to miss it next year.
Femme Fair is an event put together by 3 amazing women: Stacey, Christina, and Mel and their goal is to bring women together and empower one another. The day starts with small bites and lady falcon coffee with a panel to follow. The panel included Arnelle Lozada, Chloe Elisa, Mandana Ansari, Shahida Zareef and was led by Melissa San Vicente. At so many times I cheered, agreed with what they spoke of, and pulled out my phone to write notes. I was so inspired and pumped after hearing this strong women and how they seized their success. After, the shopping started! There wasn't a time I was standing around with nothing to do because there was so much to try and see! You could shop from blogger's closets and vendors, got your hair or nails done, made floral arrangements and wristlets, and soo much more.
I went to Femme Fair last year as a VIP guest and was invited to host my own booth this year which was such an honor. I shared a booth with my homegirl Jayme from The HellaJam. I seriously don't know what I would have done without her! From staying up to tag clothes to bouncing ideas off of each other, this booth was truly a labor of love from us both and I definitely think it shows that.
There was so much that left in me awe but most of all, the decor and art installations! Everything flowed so beautifully and fit the theme of positivity and beauty. The whole day was such a blessing! I connected with babes I already love and met new ones to love! None of it would have been possible without the hard work of everyone listed below. And a huge thank you to Peer space for allowing all of these talented individuals to come together in a gorgeous, light filled space!
