Marsha Badger, Marshbar’s Closet, has entertained audiences with her fashion commentary for the past year. If you have not had the pleasure of meeting her at New York City’s elite events, you can follow her whereabouts on her website Marshbarscloset.com. Rapidly becoming a fashion icon herself, she has interviewed some of the most influential people in the Fashion industry. This event was an opportunity to celebrate her grand accomplishments.
Most blogs are not able to keep their longevity in such a competitive arena. Marsha Badger stands out from the crowd because of her unique sense of style and interpretation. Before beginning her own blog, MarshBar’s Closet, she blogged for the media group 3 Minds. During that time she wrote her first book, A Body of Art, a collection of poetry. When 3 Minds ended she continued writing. She connected with her target audience: the hipsters, the natural girls, and young professionals by contributing to online fashion magazines Everything Girls Love and Pretty Girls Sew. In 2013, she decided to start her own blog and the rest is Fashion history. Marsha has made significant connections with experienced Fashion experts such as 2009 Best Style Winner, Claire Sulmers from Fashionbombdaily.com and Fashion stylist/ doll designer Toni Grant of Haus of Swag. The Marshbar’s Closet Anniversary event showcased several unique vendors such as the Haus of Swag and Tamara Johnson of natural skin care line, Liliglow Boutique. Additional vendors Intimate Grind Clothing; Just my Style Fashion Boutique; L’ eise Cosmetics; and Diva Rose Cosmetics displayed their designs and products for guest to purchase. The entertainment consisted of a Fashion show by Sai of Leroyalraiment’s original pieces and a performance by lead singer/songwriter, Taylor Bilger of musical group Vent. The Bloggerversary sponsors, Shea Moisture and Shoedazzle.com, provided luxe goodies as keepsakes. The raffle for the “Best Dressed” was severe competition. Like herself, her followers and guest are all creative people that are not afraid of mixed prints and bright colors.
Just as fashion started to feel mundane and predictable, Marshbar’s Closet provides fun alternatives that can be found from Forever 21 to small business online boutiques, with nothing usually costing more than $100. She provides humorous satire with her weekly Isht Kanye Says segment and graphic t- shirts that can be purchased on the website, along with other original pieces. Marsha believes that it’s not what you are wearing but how you wear it. With a philanthropic heart and a “bad” pair of shoes, she is walking her runway to fame.
