I had an amazing first week in San Francisco. I unpacked my boxes, ordered more furniture and… met blogger Aimee Song. WOW right? If you don’t know who Aimee Song is, you better ask somebody! Ha!
It happened really quickly. I was googling and found a post about this event. I RSVP-ed and received my ticket. I added the event to my calendar and BOOM… I was going to meet one of the top 5 bloggers in the world. Neiman Marcus is my favorite luxury store as you know and I really loved the one in San Francisco. So it was pleasure to visit my fav store to meet a blogger I really admired.
Aimee Song has such a unique success story and I can relate to from a life path point of view. She started as an interior designer who enjoyed taking pictures of her outfits. She slowly realized that her styles were getting a lot of attention so she posted more outfit of the day post on her good. Today she is an Instagram fashion guru. She is the queen of brand partnerships and each and every one she has, is authentic.
The thing I love the most about Aimee is her love for family. Her sister Dani is her best friend and she takes Dani with her wherever she goes. Sound familiar? I do the same thing with my younger brother who is also a fashion lover as well. She also showcases her parents on her blogs, vlogs and Instagram which is a big indicator how important family is to her even in her big, big fashion world.
Aimee Song was a joy to meet. We took pictures together. We spoke about family and how it keeps her grounded. I received her book, Capture Your style and got it signed. Aimee’s new book, Capture Your Style discusses how she used social media as a platform to express herself through fashion and to build a following. I will be doing a complete review on the book once I really dive into it. For now, I will add it to my non- existent coffee table because I have no furniture at the moment. #Quillsgoestocali
Now all I have to do is find a way to meet Chiara Ferrigani and Chriselle Lim.
What a way to end my first week in San Francisco.
