A Long Overdue Post: the Austin Bleet-Up.

I was at the Austin Bleet-Up 27 days ago. I know, why I haven't I posted the photos yet?

Because my computer got a virus (it's fixed now!), burst pipe in my bedroom, Christmas, and work.

So exactly what is the Austin Bleet-Up? It is this amazing bi-annual party that Tolly Moseley and Richard Gonzalez put together to unite the bloggers of Austin. December 3rd's Austin Bleet-Up was held on the terrace of the Whole Foods Headquarters (located at 6th and Lamar), and featured Republic of Austin's Austin Blogger Awards, live music, ice-skating, free food, and adult beverages. While the fourth Austin Bleet-Up, this was my first! I was in good comapny, as you can see in the photos.

With the original Hipstercrite, Lauren.

Tolly and Chris (Republic of Austin), as they announced the winners of the Austin Blog Awards.

Organic pancakes...from a can! Blueberries sold separately.

About to eat pancakes with Austinite in the Making, Brittney.

With The Austin Eavesdropper herself, Tolly.

At the Bleet-Up, I wore a vintage dress from Blue Velvet, while my bag and booties are both from Maurices. Bracelet came to me via an Urban Outfitters online purchase four years ago, and the necklace is from Cream Vintage.

I hope everyone has a wonderful new year! I will be posting my 2011 Fasholutions soon.
