I'll bet you were thinking I forgot Fashion Week completely as I hadn't posted my featured event yet. This year there were quite a few events that focused on the intersection between Technology and Fashion, which couldn't have made me happier, or kept me busier. This was one of the year's I was happy about being over-scheduled.

I do have a stand out event this year, and it is an event that focused on Tech and Fashion and I figured that #TechThursday on the interwebs was the perfect day to hit you with it. Hello Beautiful and Latinista hosted a tech talk called: TECH: THE NEW FASHIONISTA How Tech Is Changing The Way We Live. The event was held at Sony Square NYC. Nestled in the bustling Flatiron District, Sony Square NYC is a PUBLIC space committed to showcasing innovations in products, movies, music and gaming igniting creativity and curiosity through extraordinary experiences, you can catch product launches, creative workshops, live performances and more. It was a great venue for this event being held during New York Fashion Week and talking Tech.

Currently the space is hosting an a7R III Photo Exhibition (10/25 - 11/27) from 10 am to 7pm EST - view the extraordinary images created with Sony's newest camera - this is perfect for me after hitting the Photo Plus Expo, I am more inspired than ever to get more creative with my Photography! More on my takeaways from Photo Plus Expo to come. Separate Post, Promise. From 11/3 - 01/08/18 you can also Experience PlayStation and get hands on with a variety of games across multiple PlayStation Platforms. So if you are considering a PlayStation for anyone on your holiday shopping list this year, this one is for you.

The insights on technology, incorporating influencers into marketing campaigns, and changes with technology were great to explore. Not only did the panelists knock it out the park but the Q&A is definitely where the magic happens, and I was happy to hear fellow influencers and bloggers who knew their numbers, value and worth asking those juicy questions, and now you can be there too, check out the video below:

No event recap coverage from me is complete without sharing the cocktails and the DJ, the cocktail sponsor was Spring44 Honey Flavored Vodka:

and as for the DJ, now that is where it gets interesting!



Music was coming from some creative places. Places where light and music combine. And the sound was warm and immersive and doing a bang up job filling a space where tons of editors were talking.

The Sony LSPX-S1 Glass Sound Speaker was hidden among a row of plants!

At the end of the panel during the networking session Sony hosted a raffle for a different product one that was overhead, the LED Bulb Speaker, and take a guess who won?

Shortly after this beauty arrived in the mail:

And you guys know I test any tech product for at least thirty full days before even mentioning it to you. I have put the SONY LSPX-102E26 LED Bulb Speaker to the test and was surprised at the ease of set up, it was as easy as screwing in a light bulb, literally. It paired super fast and easy with ALL my music from owned to subscription, played nicely with ALL my devices from android, desktop, windows laptop and all my portables. It surprised me by pairing with no trouble to a really old iPod of mine, and most wireless speakers give me trouble with that one. I now literally want one of these bulbs in every room. I sort of wish I had put this bulb in the kitchen or bathroom, so I may have to pick up a few more. I never thought I would be recommending a Light Bulb for the holidays, but you should definitely add this one to your list for Santa. it takes up the least space, has immersive sound and pairs easily with a wide variety of devices.

My Take:

With print magazines struggling financially and many going out of business, Influencers are changing the Media Game. Blogs have changed the face of Lifestyle Stories. People are more interested in seeing a person whose lifestyle is similar to their own wearing fashion instead of celebrities, blog reviews are the new consumer reports. It's all about Real People putting products to the test and sharing the good, the bad and ugly.

Are lines getting blurry? That depends on the blogger.

You are always going to get real talk from me. The biggest 'concession' I am willing to make is with-holding a review when I get a stinker so the brand can work on it. And some stuff is so bad it just doesn't make my pages at all by MY choice, not theirs.

Designers are coming straight to Bloggers, dressing them, collaborating with them and putting us front row at their Fashion Shows which I have been doing for years. It started with "Print" Magazine Editors cursing me out and trying to get me to move to the back because the front row was 'for them', and I stood my ground brass balls style in the very beginning and love that it happened so much less this year.

I am the Rosa Parks of Bloggers when it comes to Fashion Week, if a designer tells me I'm in the front row, then I am holding my ground. I let no one move me back and I don't let Editors intimidate me.

Tech and Fashion have been intersecting, are intersecting and I love that I talk both languages. Tech is second nature to me (former Tech Recruiter) and as an Entrepreneur and Professional Woman my Fashion choices continue to evolve with the places I find myself walking in life. Tech and Fashion have been intersecting for me for quite awhile and I wouldn't have it any other way. This event was a breath of fresh air during New York Fashion Week as far as I'm concerned and hope to see more of these smart talks next season.
