There were two blogger events this past week -- the opening of the New Era flagship on State Street and Whitney Port's Design Your Life. I really liked meeting Whitney and hearing her speak about her ascent from reality stardom to fashion designer and author. And the New Era opening could've been better, but I met some awesome people -- and you can't really go wrong when there's an open bar, so whatev.
Both events were great, if for no other reason than the networking that took place. Between befriending ESPN reporters and seasoned bloggers -- like my ticket giveaway winner, Tabitha -- there was no shortage of interesting people to meet and exchange ideas with.

Whitney shares her wisdom on hustlin' and making moves in the real world.

|Whitney was just as cool -- if not more so -- than I expected her to be. Always a nice surprise!|

Who knew that faux fur would equal faux pas in the way of shedding everywhere?
Oh well, still gonna wear it! Anyone who gets near me in black clothes between now and April -- beware.
