One year ago, 6 of my closest friends (Ashley, Ashley, Ashley, Angelica, Sharon, Jennie B) and I met for drinks at Cigar Bar in San Francisco. We discovered that night that there is no great way for fashion-forward people in the technology industries to connect in their offline life. That night, Digitally Chic was born. DC is a networking group that connects the online world with great offline fashion and technology focused events. Our Facebook group had grown to over 200 members, and our community page has nearly 300 fans. The community Facebook page (http://facebook.com/DigitallyChic) keeps our audience up-to-date with all things fashion and technology, and encourages like-minded individuals to engage in conversation about daily hot topics. Our member-only Facebook group not only provides networking opportunities via open conversation within the group platform about fashion and tech, but also invitations to each DC event. (Membership is currently free, but you have to have a strong & active interest in the fashion and tech industries!)
Each month Digitally Chic has at least one Official Digitally Chic Meetup which falls on the third Thursday, held at a different location each time. We also have special invite-only events sporadically throughout the year. Tonight is our October Meetup: Digitally Chic presents Apps & Apps at Roe Lounge. We’re inviting all fashionable techies to come geek out on some of our favorite mobile “apps” while enjoying tasty “app(etizer)s” & cocktails! Our favorite fashion & lifestyle apps will be offering small group demos, sneak peeks, and sharing tips & tricks for getting the most out of their services.
Here are the participating apps:
