Memorable Quotes from AW’s Biggest Party

Austin Woman Magazine threw their 9th Anniversary Party in style. True to form, they made everyone feel like family at their networking vendor reception and featured a panel of local Super Stars with a tasty lunch at The Westin Hotel before unleashing the slightly tipsy masses into Macy’s and Neiman Marcus for power shopping.

The panel is always my favorite part. Judy Maggio of KEYE TV moderated the Q & A with AW’s “Style Mavens” who shared their unscripted insights and experiences with the audience. Here are quotes from our panelists that were met with applause:
