NYC and InFB Blogger meet

*This post has been delayed by a week*
One balmy Friday evening the bloggers from InFB (Indian Fashion Bloggers) met, and what a whale of a time did they have!
Thanks to Tanvi for this initiative for the meet-up, else I would never have met such wonderful people (who I have always known from their blogs and tweets). Its such a revelation, when you meet the people behind the blogs - they are real people, beautiful, chirpy personalities. 

I had everything planned for the meetup day, outfit, shoes, jewelry, makeup, confidence - check and check! The hitch just was the long drive from DC to NYC - well and as luck (??!) would have it we left late, got stuck in traffic, lost our way and..hmm. I think that was about it to make me late for the meetup. 
I met with with Renu from Renew-it at the NJ PATH station before heading to the meetup - but the time we reached both of us were huffing and puffing from the walk from the subway station. 
The rooftop bar was picture-perfect with a backdrop of the majestic Empire State Building and the hip NYC crowd. I am glad I was in time to meet with the lovely Jyoti from Style Delights, Tanvi from The Fabulous life of not-so-rich and infamous, Dhruvi from Stilettos & Sequins, Nisha from Love Laugh and Mirch, Richa from Urban Mantra, Prutha from Dont Shoe Me and Ashlene. 

We drank, chit-chatted, shared our experiences and background - basically everything other than our blogs! Of course we took a lot of pics too! So I will stop yapping now and let you enjoy the lovely (Instagrammed!) memories from that evening. I would highly recommend such blogger meets - at least twice in a year, and even better if more. It just helps to get together our community and spread some blogger love, don't you think?

Unfortunately, in all the hurry to get to the event, I did not get to click any outfit pics! I got ready in a record time of 10 mins. and rushed out the door, completely skipping on my fav thing to do - Take outfit pics. 

Well, you can get a sneak-peek of my outfit in the pics below and this is What I Wore
Leopard-print dress - Express; Black Bolero - Macys; Peep-toes pumps: Bandolino @ DSW;
Accessories - JC Penney; Bag - Aldo; Watch - Michael Kors Womens Chronograph (Gift from parents)
