Last month, we were lucky to be a sponsor of the 4th Annual Texas Style Council! This rad weekend, which takes place in Austin, is a conference for female bloggers, women-centric business owners, and women everywhere, with small, intimate workshops that taught classes in a summer school style! As always, it was amazing, and we were happy to be a part of it!

The first thing we did when we got in town was set up a clothing swap in the beautiful 2nd Street District, in downtown Austin. The weather was HOT but the killer selection and style of clothing the attendees dropped off to swap was even HOTTER! Have you ever been to a clothing swap? It is a ton of fun! You basically bring great condition, still trendy items to swap with other attendees. We decided to bring over 200 pieces of new LuLu*s swag including dresses, shoes, jewelry, and more! We planted these pieces in with the rad vintage and used items for a truly interesting selection. This added fuel to the fire and as the room got more and more packed full of swappers hunting for the best finds, we knew the party had begun! With spicy-cool cocktails to sip on, we all had a blast listening to great music, swapping cool vintage and new items, and networking the night away!

We had Elizabeth from Delightfully Tacky join us that weekend and help us out at the swap! She is such a fun lady and we love reading her blog! It was a blast.

After attending some awesome panels on Saturday, we headed over to the Prom Party! A way to unite bloggers and brands, this party was an awesome place to network and turn up the energy level! We got to see some of our favorite blogger friends! Above there is Emma and Elsie from A Beautiful Mess, Katie from Skunkboy Blog, and a friend, all having a blast!
