SXSW Stylish FREE Events!

Overwhelmed by SXSW events?  Me too!  If you're unsure what to go to and you're looking for some style and fashion focused events, here are my recommendations for you!  These are all free events that don't require a badge, and some don't even require an RSVP.  But make sure you RSVP to the ones that do have an RSVP.  

See ya at SXSW!  And check back as I'll continue updating this list and adding more details...
