IFB Conference – Day 1

This week has been filled with style, beauty and amazing new friends! Day 1 of the Independent Fashion Bloggers Conference included panels of some of the industry’s most influential. I had so much fun getting my DIY on, sampling Spring beauty, discovering a new obsession (fashionable headphones..crazy chic!) and checking out fab jewelry.

Best Dressed Fashion Week: Olivia Palermo

The excitement of fashion week isn’t only about the upcoming trends. The front row stirs up just the amount of excitement as the runway. One of my favorite attendees, Olivia Palermo, takes the title for “best dressed,” as she breezes through NYFW and LFW in phenomenal style.
