As a style blogger, I'm constantly adding new pieces to my wardrobe. And to keep my closets from looking like I belong on the show Hoarders, I purge. So I had this crazy idea to host a shopping party. Not just any shopping party, but a shop the blogger's closet shopping party. I thought it would be really cool to gather up a few bloggers from the Atlanta area, setup a boutique styled space and let the public come to shop their heart's out or at least until their money ran out. Well things didn't go quite as I had planned.

As I'm sure most events go, things almost never go 100% the way it was envisioned or planned. While I won't get into all the things that went 'wrong', I will say that I will probable never host a brunch again! The blogger's closet shopping party, Yes! Just not the brunch...
Saturday's event taught me to push pass the point of disappointment. To overlook what I can't control. To get over the feelings of failure. I learned that in order to get to the top I'm going to have to take risks. If I'm going to be great, I'll have to kick my comfort zone to the curb.
