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. Aritzia Sweater, Zara Skirt , Gap Tights (similar), Nine West Booties (similar), Anthropologie Necklace, Mac Lips in Pink Nouveau, Butter LONDON nails in Fiver & Molly Cuddled “If it doesn’t make you crazy like teenage love, don’t blog about it.” -Tina Craig @BagSnob
“Don’t dumb down for your readers. Raise them with you.” -Leandra Medine @ManRepeller
“Be interesting, be useful or be clever.” -Dina Fierro @Eye4Style
Fekkai introduced their PrX Reparatives collection. Fortified keratin and silk proteins make up the ultimate weapon for damaged hair.
MailChimp had the ultimate DIY bar to create a chic tees. Why did I ever stop using a bedazzler?
I’ve never been one for on-ear headphones, but Monster has completely changed my perspective. The glam Diamond Tear styles and interchangeable headbands totally won me over, added to my wish list!
I love intricate jewelry, and Alex and Ani has a wide array to add your own personal touch. I love all of the new product I received from Bare Minerals. Their Spring beauty collection is fun and flirty with punches of bright vibrant hues.
We left with a collection of great new products to try (and some of my personal faves!) I can never get enough Twistbands!
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.
After a fashion packed, busy week, I’m getting ready to leave NYC tomorrow (Friday). What an incredible experience, acquiring so much insight, and meeting so many great people.
On Tuesday, I attended the Independent Fashion Bloggers Conference.
What I Wore Dress: Vince. Handbag: Marc by Marc Jacobs (similar color here). Shoes: J. Crew. Watch: Michael Kors (similar here). Ring: David Yurman. Nails: CND Shellac in Tropix.
[Note to self (& anyone purchasing a leather dress this season).. Remember, leather will stretch when worn. Going a size down isn’t a bad idea!]
