Recap of Recent Blogger Events

Last week I went to a few blogger events with my girls from the NYC Style Collective and I wanted to share some highlights!

I attended the Rocksbox NYC happy hour held at The Gordon Bar in SoHo and what a classy event! Rocksbox is based out of San Francisco but was in NYC for a little and decided to throw a small get together to meet some of the bloggers.

If you follow my blog (or snapchat @awitzdree), you know I LOVE Rocksbox and am ALWAYS wearing at least one of their pieces. I just love that I can select every piece I like and they decide which 3 to send me. This way I don’t have to make any serious decisions when picking out my jewelry – plus it comes SO fast! Use code PRETTYPROPERQUAINTXOXO for a free month to try for yourself!

I wore a classic white dress with a statement jacket (another perfect after-work outfit transition)! I LOVE blazers and this is one of my faves because it’s a twist on the traditional look by adding tweed material and some color. Plus, it has sort of has a Chanel vibe to it. Ann Taylor always does these statement jackets perfect! I picked out my faves for you to transition any outfit with the simple addition of one:

I’ve never been to The Gordon Bar lounge before and it felt like a friend’s living room – it was seriously so cozy and beautiful. There was a section where the natural light would shine through and it created the perfect vibe. Check out the short vid I put together showcasing the ambiance:


This event was held in NoLiTa and it was the perfect amount of casual with so many cute activities. Sebago was celebrating the 70th Anniversary of the brand with “Camp Sebago” featuring oyster shucking lessons, ice cream sandwiches, craft beer, and of course: shoes!

The brand’s shoes have so many different looks from professional to casual- I’m still trying to decide which style I’m going to get! I narrowed it down to a few below… help me decide which one should I get!

What’s so great is that everyone in the NYC Style Collective shares information about the blogger events going on and who is going where! I’m looking forward to many more fun events with the NYCSC girls!

    I am SO IN LOVE with your photos Andrea!! You did such an amazing job recapping the events. So upset I missed the Rocksbox happy hour, it looked so fun. And I loved that blazer you’re wearing to the event, definitely very Chanel-esque.
