8 of 30: Lucky FABB


Yesterday, I attended the Lucky Fashion and Beauty Blogger Conference in New York City. I really enjoyed the speakers and panel discussions. They were very insightful. It was also fun to be around a whole room full of people whose interest in fashion and beauty matched my own. I won't do a full recap, because I don't want to spoil it for those who still plan to watch the conference recording. Many of the conference speakers touched in some way on being authentic as a blogger, remaining true to yourself and continuing to learn/expand your knowledge (about the craft of blogging, about blogging platforms, social media and technology, etc.). Joan Rivers was as funny as she is on TV, but she also gave great advice like her opinion that that the only things you'll regret in life are the things you don't do and to manage your own money, be a business woman instead of relying on others to do so for you. Jenna Lyons (of J Crew) looked as stylish in real life as she does in photos. I also learned about great sites that I will check out when I have time such as Style Trek and Fashism.

I wasn't very good at documenting the day in pictures (this is still something I need to work on!), I was too busy taking everything in. But I did get photos done by the photographer they had set up at the event which are way better than my usual self-taken photos. I feel grateful that I had the opportunity to participate in the conference and thought Lucky did an awesome job at putting together a great conference.

How awesome that you were able to be there! I'm jealous!

You look so fantastic in this outfit. That dress is spectacular and I adore the pop of red in the belt. The blazer is the perfect topper.

Thanks! The belt was a last minute addition, but I'm happy now that I added it.

I'm sorry you couldn't be there, I would have loved to have met you in person. But go ahead and watch the conference when you get a chance online, it will be worth your time.

To be quite honest, it was a little exhausting traveling back and forth for the day up to NY, but was worth it!

Thanks a bunch! It was a fun conference : )
Most opportunities to be around fashion/style bloggers are a fun time in my book.

Thanks! They are a nice memento from the day. I don't think I've had a professional picture taken since my college graduation photos and I personally like these better : )
