Jen Smith, who runs the Blank and White Frames blog, was announced the winner of the first-ever Tootsies Top Blogger competition at a special event last month in The Plaza at Preston Center.

While the Top Blogger competition was going on, people were able to vote on the new Tootsies website for their favorite of nine local bloggers.

The bloggers modeled their looks in the fashion presentation at the Top Blogger 2012 event.
The other bloggers who participated in the competition were Allison Edwards of Where Wear in the City, Amy Havins of Dallas Wardrobe, Devon Dyer of Devon Rachel, Dora Chu of Couture Ventage by Dora, Genniva Bruce of Somewear To Be, Heather Lettieri of Against The Grain, Jaclyn Welch of Streets of Sparkle and Krystal Schlegel of The Style Book.
