Picnic in the Park: Two Point Oh LA Launch

nicole, me, my sister tritia & amanda

i went to the launch of two point oh la, a los angeles based fashion blogging organization. it was super sunny outside (and super hot too, eek!), but everyone showed up in their best summer outfits (lots of mini dresses, floral prints, rompers, and hats!).

i was kind of nervous because it was my first time attending something like this, but everyone was really nice (and there were sandwiches and ice cream!). and let's not forget the swag:

i finally got to meet nicole of her current obsession. we became twitter friends before the launch (i added her because her middle name is "leigh" too, haha) so at least we knew each other when we got there. she also introduced me to her friend amanda of bitch bitch bitch. be sure to check out their blogs! they're both super sweet and stylish.

amanda and nicole

here are a few of the other lovely people i met:
afterwards, me and my sister checked out the griffith observatory for a bit (haven't been there since i was a kid!). the views are amazing up there!


and finally, here's my outfit from today (sorry if i look a little grumpy. i had just woken up, and i'm not very smiley in the morning). i decided to wear the dress i made for myself last weekend (i've been obsessed with birds lately):




details: black and yellow bird dress (made by me! please visit my etsy shop), gold mary-janes with kitten heels (dollhouse), hat (h&m), daisy charm necklace (juicy couture)

if you're an LA fashion blogger, be sure to join two point oh la! you'll get invited to fun fashion events and have the chance to meet other fashion bloggers (and me!) ;)

Meg said...

Awesome -- looks like a really fun day! Love your dress, too.

The observatory is so fun -- went there with friends last fall and got some great shots! It wasn't too foggy/smoggy that day, so we had some good views of the city. Looks like you did, too!

Bitch, Bitch, Bitch (Amanda Mac) said...

Hey! It was so great meeting you! I finally got around to writing my first post in over a month. I am going to be writing about the blogger meet up soon so keep your eyes peeled lol. Oh and it ended up taking us 3 hours to get to Malibu that day! We should have gone to the observatory with you guys!
