Friday, SFBayStyle writers got together with the Silicon Valley Moms Blog Group writers from all over the country in town visiting for the BlogHer conference and we had a make-up and head shots cocktail party at Saks Fifth Avenue in Union Square. About eighty of us congregated on the fifth floor at Saks for wine, hors d'oeurves, and shopping. Most successful department: shoes.
As writers, we're always in need of updated, high quality head shots to attach to our work, so thanks to Beth Blecherman (shown top left with me), SFBayStyle cofounder and Silicon Valley Moms Blog Group cofounder and partner, who arranged the photographers, we were able to get that done. Saks kindly offered their space and make-up artists from Bobbi Brown, Lancome, Nars, Giorgio Armani and a few others as well as Alexander Fekkai hair products. Dawn Dzedzy did a great job organizing from that end. All of the writers seemed to have a good time drinking, talking, primping and posing.

We also have a flickr group for all of our party pictures for whomever wants to check them out. Thanks to the SVMoms Group BlogHer party sponsors - Chevy, Yahoo! and Sprint for providing me with a a Sierra Wireless mobile broadband USB modem so I could blog from anywhere during the conference.
Sarah Granger is Editor and Publisher of SFBayStyle and a Contributing Editor for the Silicon Valley Moms Blog and she really needed a new head shot.
