After a year of wanting-but-failing to go to San Francisco Thread Show at Metreon, Downtown SF, finally I found one Sunday where my time was open. It’s quite a coincidence because a good friend of mine was reminding me about it about a week before and wanting to know whether I’d accompany her into this shopping event :) But thanks to her, I finally got to experience this one of the most well-organized, professionally done, and great shopping experiences that San Francisco has to offer. Local and emerging designers, craftsmen, hair and makeup stylists, food vendors, DJ, an others gathered in the 4th floor of Metreon Shopping Center to show what they got and helped shoppers to find what they need.
Well, what do you know? The 5th month of 2011 is here! Time sure flies :)
It’s exciting that the first day of May 2011 is marked with Capsule Design Festival at Hayes Valley Park, from 11 am to 6 pm!
130 independent men’s, women’s, kids’ clothing, and accessories designers are going to sell their goods, as well as paper makers, glass designers, and more in 4 city blocks. You should NOT miss this event.
What a great way to spend time outdoor before closing off the day with the the closing of Bay Area Dance Week, eh?

Right off the bat, Daily Beast has made me so excited about what’s to come in 2011 (it’s almost a week already!!!). Except for Justin Bieber, of course. Or Britney.
I am especially excited to see what Lady Gaga will bring in her “Born This Way” album, as well as the new fashion trends in 2011. We’ll see how people interpret the trends in their personal style. Haruki Murakami’s “IQ84″ is also interesting, I’ll have to get a copy. Ah, so excited. Anything that gets you excited in viewing the Daily Beast gallery?
I haven’t been able to come to this Fashion Mash-Up (one more reason why I want to live in the city), but I feel very inclined to spread the word, especially since the discussion will be about fashion blogging :)

These awesome bloggers will touch topic points such as:
1. How did you start as a fashion blogger? What was the idea behind your blog?
2. Why is fashion a worth while subject to blog (write) about?
3. How do you engage with your readers or followers? What tools of communications work? How do you maintain an ongoing discussion?
4. Is there a current or a possible revenue stream being utilized? Ie:
Affiliate Marketing, Link Exchange, Banner Advertisement? Does it work?
5. What other social media tools do you use often to promote your
blog? ie: Twitter, Facebook, Four Square. Can you tell us, what works
and what doesn’t?
