More than 100 St. Louis metro area, Kansas City and Chicago bloggers attended Friday night’s Well Dressed Midwest Blogger Lounge at Scape American Bistro, an evening for networking that connected bloggers with 25+ fashion, fitness and lifestyle brands.

Whether sipping on cocktails made with Pinnacle Cranapple vodka or enjoying Skinnygirl Prosecco, Redd’s Apple Ale and Peroni Italian Lager, bloggers had a chance to connect with seriously stylish vendors. Shirt Kong was on hand to print t-shirts with their manual press, and bloggers had the chance to check out gorgeous clothing from local designer Suzanne Lay and cozy fall sweaters and scarves from Glik’s. If they were scouting for their next big head-to-to look, Diba Imports had a great selection of footwear, as did the on-trend designs from Crevo and Vogue Footwear and local Lookie Lou Boutique.

For those obsessed with beauty, St. Louis’ own Blissoma had a selection of their best skin products for sale with a special discount for attendees, and Kink salon was giving guests a mini-makeover with hair chalk in pink, purple and blue. The Clover’s booth also displayed a bevy of great gifts, including Demeter fragrances, jewelry and even knit knickers.
