Glam Dallas gals gathered at Tootsies eager to find out who blogs better than the rest. For its third annual Top Blogger competition, the popular fashion boutique gave six local writers a chance to outfit themselves in Tootsies threads to express their personal styles.
Friends, family and past nominees — including Morgan Hunt of A Treasure Hunt, Katie Anderson of Modern Eve and Samantha Stewart of Style of Sam — showed up to support the new flock of fashionistas. Everyone enjoyed treats from Sprinkles Cupcakes and Skimpy Mixers while Elizabeth and James hosted a fashion show featuring models from Wallflower Management.
Online voting began June 23 and continued through July 21, aided by a panel of judges including Rhonda Sargent Chambers of RSC Show Productions, 2012 Tootsies Top Blogger Jen Smith of Blank White Frames, Heather Anderson of Style by Fluent and Shannon Yoachum of Style by Lolly.
Meet this year’s finalists:
- Lauren Murphy of Murphy’s Law
- Blair Flowers Butler, Ellen Flowers and Janie Flowers of Perennial Style
- Tanya Foster of Film Fashion Fun
- Kelley Barnes of The Style Barn
