Lucky FABB ~ Part 3

This is the last in my series of posts dedicated to Lucky FABB!  As I've said before, it was such an amazing day - truly the best parts for me were getting to meet other bloggers for the first time, hang out with friends I hadn't seen in a while & get inspired by the entrepreneurial spirit of so many talented women! 

Meeting Michael Stars in his suite where we got to virtually "try on" some of their pieces

The most amazing dessert table - the macarons and chocolate/salted caramel cake were to die for!

The coolest idea for a fireplace

Gorgeous centerpiece + decor inside the House of Zappos

Brandon Holley working on a DIY tote bag for her son at the Miss Me Jeans table

You know when you meet someone and you just instantly click?  That's how it was with Jenn & I - love this girl. (Also, don't ask what was going on with my hair - I blame the ocean mist!)

Seriously one of the biggest highlights for me: getting to meet Jeannie Mai in person & chat with her briefly about my blog.  She was the sweetest and most genuine person - even though her manager was trying to rush her off, she took the time to talk with me & take a quick picture!

Me & my girls - I'm wearing: Ann Taylor dress (on sale here) & cuff, Guess pumps, Forever 21 clutch & BaubleBar earrings (gifted from Tiffany - get them here

Check back next week for a MASSIVE giveaway of my gift bag items from the conference!!

Love these photos! I took too many of the speakers and absolutely none of the event or decor! I even missed photoing A Fine Frenzy! sigh. Can't wait to see what you're giving away next week. My bag is severely depleted after my family went through it.
Happy Weekend!

I like how Jeannie Mai pushed her bangle all the way up her forearm. i am petite and bracelets, etc. fall off my arms. I will have to try her technique.

You ladies look gorgeous! So bummed I couldn't make it, but maybe next time! And Jennie Mai is one of my absolute favs, too. She's adorable!

House Of Jeffers said...

You and Jenn are so cute - the photos here make the event look so fun, Also, what struck me is that it seemed quite different from the IFB events in NYC in terms of things to do etc...

Ria said...

Really wish I could have made it to LuckyFabb this year. It looked like so much fun. West coast is just hard for me.

Clara Turbay said...
