7:19 pm: JC Studio is packed! Everyone looks quite stylish and conversation is flowing. A cluster of very fashionably dressed girls is chatting just over my left shoulder. I've been busy going around talking to vendors and taking party photos. They'll be uploaded very shortly...
7:27pm: Two ladies were just talking about having their nails done over my shoulder. And I'm still uploading photos. Sometimes it's tough being a live blogger. :/
7:34pm: Round 1 of photos!
Anne Carson was just one of several jewelry vendors present. She specializes in eclectic jewelry composed of sterling silver components and semi-precious stones.
RozeMerie Cuevas, the designer behind Jacqueline Conoir and the owner of JC Studio, poses next to some of her beautiful creations. (And yes, she's wearing her own design.)
Heather of up-and-coming beauty business Luxe Beauty Lounge was one of the businesses in the Spa Room at the La Femme event which offered mini beauty services onsite. Luxe is a mobile spa and specializes in throwing pampering parties--great idea for a bridal shower or party.
The front desk at JC Studio was manned by the most stylish crew! Carolina of the blog Closet Full Of Nothing is standing on the far right.

Okay, I need to go back to Elysha Low of Lysh & Lo and see if the gold bead/link bracelet is still there.
Kathy Lee of Modest Goddess hasn't been in jewelry design for long, but she learns fast: Everything she picked up about metalsmithing and working with sterling silver and semi-precious stones was learned from friends. "When you're motivated, you learn pretty quickly," says Kathy. Her jewelry line is lovely, but these pieces made of vintage components sourced from 1940s and 1950s Toronto are particularly eye-catching.
Vivian Ko of Wink Beauty Lounge was present along with her in-house line of cosmetics, false lashes, and complimentary 5-minute makeup touch-ups.
8:28pm Yay, the Lysh & Lo bracelet was still there! I just bought it; expect to see it in an upcoming outfit post. I think that's it for me as far as live-blogging at La Femme goes--I've got to run and meet the boy for salsa dancing. A big thank-you to the event organizers for inviting me along!
