My morning began by meeting up with the beautiful Tiffany - we found each other on Twitter and were both FABB first-timers...so we decided to meet up for coffee before the conference & help calm each other's nerves. After trying (& failing) to hail a cab in the pouring rain/wind, we finally gave up & walked half the way to the conference center in our 5-inch heels. So by the time we arrived, my hair had literally doubled in size (thanks to my natural curl) and was frizzy all over. Not the best first impression...
After we signed in & were walking through the massive crowds of gorgeous bloggers, we bumped into Gina (also a newbie) and invited her to hang with us - we instantly bonded & her quick wit had us laughing all day. So the 3 musketeers were born and I really don't know if I would have survived or enjoyed the day as much without these lovely ladies!
I'll get to the conference speakers & content later, but I want to tell you first what an amazing job Lucky Magazine did putting this event together. It was well-organized, professional & they truly spoiled us! Editor-in-Chief Brandon Holley (who looked stunning in her Roland Mouret sheath dress) was poised and surprisingly personable, willing to chat with any blogger who walked up to her. Some pictures from the day:
Posing at the step & repeat (I'm wearing H&M blouse, BCBG skirt, Nina peep-toes)
Essie suite, where they had mini-cupcakes to match their Fall Color Collection
Laundry suite, where we got to choose our favorite dress from their Fall Collection, create a name for it & they will send us our pick
Timberland suite, where we got to create a cold-weather look using their boots & accessories, which will be donated to a woman in need this winter
More details to come Wednesday-Friday, including the moment I met DVF!
