TFBB: we gonna be startin' something


I can't help but sing the Wanna be startin' somethin' song by Michael Jackson when I think of the last Toronto Fashion Bloggers Brunch (TFBB) at the Drake Hotel on Sunday. It seems to be the kind of song that would play when something is gaining steam. This TFBB was the best yet and I can see it just getting better.

Once a month local fashion bloggers and readers gather to talk shop and eat great food. The Drake Hotel has been kind enough to allow the TFBB to call it home. The brunch menu goes beyond the standard eggs and bacon fare. There is something for everyone on the menu.

It was our largest turnout this Sunday and it was great to meet other bloggers, readers and industry types. Fashion bloggers in attendance were:

Bianca - a wee bit skint
Eden - Bargainista
Danielle - Final Fashion
Carolyn - Toronto Fashion Incubator
Adrian - Fashion Verbatim
Truc - Deeply Superficial
Rachel, Sonja and Tiffanie - Toronto Street Fashion

The brunch is a monthly event that allows fashion bloggers, readers and other industry types to network and discuss issues related to fashion and blogging. Everyone is welcome to attend, you don't have to work in fashion or be a blogger.

After the brunch Sonja from TSF organized the first quarterly Clothing Swap. I had brought a few things that were sitting in my closet unworn and could use a good home. It was a great little swapping experience and I look forward to the next one. In return I found some stellar pieces like a riding style blazer (it just needs the leather elbow patches), a vintage lambswood jacket with fur trim and a sleeveless black shift dress. All the left over clothes were donated to a women's shelter afterwards and I thought that was great.
