An Evening With Retroflame

Hey guys! I know I have gone back to my usual schedule of Friday evening blogposts but I've decided that if I want to do any extra, mid week posts they will go up on a Tuesday evening.
 I wasn't going to do this blogpost as I have Friday's outfit post up and ready to go but when Sadhbh said this would make a fab blogpost I couldn't pass up the opportunity. 

 Yesterday evening I went to Erika Fox's Cork meet up in the Cork International Hotel. If you are a blogger yourself you definitely know this girl but if you don't, she has a fashion blog called 'Retro Flame' that is incredible. She is originally from Kerry but lives in New York so her Snapchat stories are full of Manhattan and SoHo adventures.
Originally I was going on my own but I convinced my friend Sadhbh from Sadhbhers.ie to come with me. I brought along my camera and took some photos of our evening. 
We were greeted with a champagne reception and of course some little nibbles. It was there we could take photos with Erika and have a chat with her and with other bloggers who were there. I actually met Zoe (ZoeCoCo) there which was lovely to see another friendly face. 
My Outfit:
Top - Stradivarius 
Sleeveless blazer & Shoes - Penneys
Jeans - Topshop
Clutch - New Look
After this we went into a little room that was down at the end of the restaurant (which looked amazing) to have a Q&A session with Erika. It was here I learned a lot about American visas, getting in contact with companies and how Erika grew 'Retro Flame'. Hearing other bloggers' questions and Erika's stories I must say that I was truly inspired. 
We also saw some items from Erika's depop account which were incredible! She is a fashion queen.
 I am definitely so motivated when it comes to all things blogging after attending the event last night. I now have plans for the future The Red Brunette and have so many ideas about how I'd like to grow and change over the next year.
Huge thank you to Sadhbh for coming with me and for the fab blogpost idea. Yesterday evening I met my blogger inspiration, just shows dreams can come true,
