Houston Fashion Blogger Networking Mixer


On a rainy Thursday last week I attended a networking mixer given by the Houston Fashion Bloggers featuring Ms. Joy Sewing, Fashion Beauty Editor for the Houston Chronicle.
Joy Sewing
If you don't know, Ms. Joy (as I ended up calling her) is a journalist with over twenty years in the game.  A Houston native, she has strong southern and midwestern roots which really appeals to me as you would think that this type of experience and talent would come from other coasts and not the Gulf.  While she didn't set out to be a fashion journalist per se, she was what I call "fashion adjacent", growing up becoming a professional figure skater with her and her mom making her own costumes. Her last name IS Sewing for goodness sakes! lol
 She has had a varied career writing about fashion, beauty and celebrities writing or for Vibe, PEOPLE, NY Post and the Houston Chronicle.
During the discussion she dropped some gems on why she is good at what she does, blogger vs. journalists, and the evolution of blogging. Ms. Joy also shared her observations about the local Houston blogging and fashion scenes.

Joy and I at the end of the night.
And yes, I do love my Old Navy Skinny cords and wellies for a rainy day :-)
I was really enthused that she touched on the local fashion blogging scene in Houston and the future of it. I can't wait to catch another mixer again with Ms. Joy. It was very infomative and I am super excited this was happening in my town.
