On Tuesday February 28th, lifestyle and fashion bloggers joined E! Daily News contributor Katlean de Monchy at Lair downtown at the first ever Bloggerini event.  Notable attendees included celebrity fashion stylists Cesar Gaveria and Melissa Meyers, philanthropist Jean Shafiroff, and Orange Juice and Biscuits founder Jonathan Valdez.

Real Housewives of New York’s Sonja Morgan was purported to be making an appearance, but despite all the lookalike Bergdorf blondes at Lair throughout the evening she was a no show.

Guests were treated to preview and try on the de Monchy Collection jewelry line while enjoying Voli Vodka Bloggerini’s. While many celebrity jewelry lines tend to be tacky, the de Monchy Collection was wearable and fashion forward. Using lots of natural stones and freshwater pearls, the line piqued our interest with their agate sliced geode statement necklaces.

Attendees also sampled the eveningwear line by Camille La Vie and Mori Lee. Most of the looks were Swarovski embellished prom dresses (and made me a bit nostalgic), in addition to some cute sequined cocktail numbers.

Attendees did not leave the event empty handed, with luxury gift bags including gift certificates for Camille La Vie and Etsy boutique londonraquel.com. Also included were glitter manicure sets courtesy of Voli Vodka, the Savy Auntie book, and Tease Intimates.
