Social Fashionistas: Fashion Blogging & Social Media

Sacramento Fashion Week logo

Fashion bloggers have become fashion influencers. They receive front row seats at Fashion Week. They’re courted by pr firms and designers. They’re real people, wearing real fashion, and they’re using social media to share what they love and wear.

In participation with Sacramento Fashion Week, we’ll talk to some of Sacramento’s premiere fashion bloggers. Why do they do it and how? What’s going on in the local fashion and blogging scene? Which social media tools have proven most useful?

  > Get tickets today.

Sacramento Fashion Week is February 16-22, 2014.

Phoebe Verkouw, The Dress Fiend
Facebook Page

Phoebe Verkouw is the brain behind the thrifted fashion blog, The Dress Fiend. She’s a bona fide thrift store junkie obsessed with finding the most fabulous items for next to nothing and can be seen monthly on Good Day Sacramento showcasing some of her favorite thrifted finds. When she’s not out searching for the next hidden treasure thrifting, she’s at the Crocker Art Museum working in the interim Manager of Special Events department. 

Vanessa Labi, Babe-sicle

Vanessa Labi is a California girl seeking style and inspiration in the everyday. A few of her favorite things: cats sitting in windowsills, car dancing, sweet potato fries, waking up in the pretty kind of bed head (so rare), disco, the golden hour, Zumba, spanish style bungalows, and whisky cocktails. 

Haley Titus, Colour Me Classic

Haley Titus is a graphic designer and fashion blogger who strives to inspire others to make the most of their wardrobes with styling and remixing tricks. Haley loves colour, pattern and type, and uses her talent to point women in the right direction for selecting timeless pieces that will last them many seasons to come.
