Fabulous style at the New York blogger meetup! | 40plusstyle.com

As you may have seen on Facebook or Instagram, we had a fabulous gathering of women this weekend for the New York blogger meetup organised by yours truly.

Friday evening we got to know eachother over diner at an Italian restaurant in the West Village. It was dark so therefore not a lot of pictures were taken but here are a few that give an impression of the Friday event.

Sue Kreitzman and Debra Rapoport were there. Both women that you may recognise from the films Fabulous Fashionistas (Sue) and Advanced Style (Debra).


This is fabulous Lyn from the fabulous blog Accidental Icon.



We had brunch at the fabulous B Bar in the East Village and talked about blogging and social media and how we could all improve our skills.


After brunch we went outside for a group photo. You can click on this image to see a larger version.NewYorkBloggerMeetup-21

Here is a close-up of Valerie, one half of the Idiosyncratic Fashionistas.


Here is the other half, Jean.


A detail of Jean’s jewelry.




Lyn was looking smashing in gray and white on this day.


Our outfits fitted well together. I’m wearing a T by Alexander Wang sleeve dress (on sale here and skirt version here), Papucei shoes and Floti Jewelry.


Ruthie Darling was the youngest woman of her group and she is a big fan of the Idiosyncratic Fashionistas!


Here is Lyn with photographer Denton.


Suzanne, who blogs at SuzanneCarillo.com rocked her flower jumpsuit.


And had a bit of fun with Denton too!



This is Lisa (left) from the blog Hers, his and ours and Elyse, an artist and photographer. You can find her on Twitter.


Finally, there is photographer Denton and his wonderful wife Teresa.


And here is Suzanne at it again…


It was a fabulous gathering with the most amazing women and one man where great ideas were shared and new friendships made. I had so much fun!

Thanks so much to everyone who came.

Brava to the bloggers who inspire their readers! I learn so much from you.
Sylvia, your dinner outfit was perfect and that bag…..I should have bought one when I had the chance!
Jean’s red jewelry, Lyn’s silvery bolero look and Teresa’s skirt and bag are standouts for me.
i hope all of you keep doing what you do.
Big “Hello” to Denton too.

What a wonderful group of people – I feel the positive energy, especially in the last photo. You really encouraged me with my blog, Sylvia, and I can imagine that everyone at the meetup came away with fresh ideas as well. What can be better than that, apart from having a few laughs along the way? Well, and some shopping, um, and some theatre. You and Suzanne look smashing.

Oh how I wanted to be there too. To meet all these lovely women. Sylvia, you are experiencing a swell summer my dear. And in every picture, in every outfit you look fabulous. Was the white dress the one you bought in Haarlem with Anja and me? Or am I mistaken?
Great women, great photos.

Sylvia thank you so much for bringing together such a wonderful group of women! Denton took some fabulous photos and I had a wonderful time at the dinner and the brunch. You are so amazingly generous with your expertise and I learned a ton that I am going to try and put into practice. I cannot thank you enough. I love that photo of the two of us, we are so coordinated! Hope to see you before you leave. Thanks again.

I’ve so enjoyed your post and IG photos from your trip to New York. It was lovely to see that you were able to meet some of my favourite women there. Wish I could have been there, but will be in NYC in October when I will catch up with everyone.
