Could you take my picture, 'cause I won't remember...

Don't you hate when you do something awesome and you even remember to bring your camera but then you get so super busy that you forget to take photos? Welcome to my life.

I didn't take a single photo from Friday's New Media Fashion outing. FROWN FACE. But I did steal this one shot from Diya. I regret that we didn't get one big, group photo, but um, here's half of us:

from L-R: Janette from Fashion Loves People, Pamela from Market Publique, Grechen from Grechen's Closet, Rachel from Walls are Imagined, Kelly from We Hate Nike Shorts, someone that looks vaguely familiar, Diya from In Her Stilettos, Kayla from Austin Etc, Tiffany from Austin is Burning, and Jacqueline from Fashion Leak.
I want to give a huge thanks to Etsy Austin, Elizabeth at Eliza Page, Catherine at the 2nd Street District, Tracy at Polished Two, and The WonderCraft for helping me make this happen. The positive responses I've gotten has been so heartwarming, and I'd love to see this become an annual event. Extra special thanks to Ryan at CrĂș for the free champagne and strawberries, the girls at Delish for the free cupcakes, and all the shops on 2nd Street that provided us with snacks and beverages during the boutique crawl. I already loved this city, but I now I feel especially enamoured and forever betrothed to it.

To see photos from people who got their priorities straight and actually managed to snap some photos of this event, see:
Rachel's wrap-up, Diya's wrap-up post, a post from Cheryl of Fashionably Austin, Anna's News8 story, Fashism's Flickr photo set, The WonderCraft recap, Tran's take, and We Hate Nike Shorts.

And in honor of this great day, I'm doing a giveaway. You can win the very same swag bag that each of the brunch attendees was given! See this link for more details.
