LuckyFABB NYC 2013

Hey everyone! Sorry I was MIA this past week. If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, you know I was at a fashion and beauty blogger’s conference by Times Square. LuckyFABB is a two-day conference hosted by Lucky Magazine. I had attended the Independent Fashion Blogger’s conference before (you can see my pictures here and here), but this was my first time at LuckyFABB. During the two days I got to mingle with some amazing fashion bloggers from all over the U.S., and even a handful of internationals. I got to listen to some very inspiring panels, and even got a chance to see and hear Eva Mendes and Kate Bosworth talk style.
I got to know tons of brands and got lots of goodies. I mean, an insane amount of goodies! I can’t wait to style and review them and tell you all about it. I cannot wait for the next LuckyFABB- it was such an amazing experience this first time around! I didn’t get a chance to make street style pics of other bloggers. I felt like in between panels and networking I had very little time to even pull out my camera. I did, however, manage to get some outfit shots, thanks to Alex of Glory Boon.

LuckyFABB Day 1. I was so excited for my very first day of LuckyFABB. I wanted to be at the Times Center by 8:30 a.m., so I set my alarm for 5, to do my hair and makeup without having to rush. Of course, I was so excited I couldn’t sleep until about 2 a.m. I woke up really rested. I yawned, stretched and though: “Such a beautiful day, the sun is shining…” then added, “wait- why is the sun shining?” I looked at my clock and it was 7:30 a.m.! Ever since I upgraded my Iphone to the new i.O.S. the alarm sometimes goes off- but without sound. I jumped out of bed and did my hair and makeup as best I could. I was still one hour late to the conference.
For my outfit I wanted to go for a monochromatic look. I went with pink, frankly because I didn’t have anything else, haha. I wanted to try something new, so I paired my trusty Nature Breeze platform sandals with these fruity socks by Ozone for a more season-appropriate look. I got lots of compliments on the socks. You shouldn’t be afraid of trying sandals and hosiery together- I think they make for an interesting look, don’t you agree?

Lucky FABB Day 2. I set two alarms for Day 2 and they both went off at the same time- the day was off to a good start. We had may break out sessions on different topics. I really wish these conferences were only one day- seriously, there’s absolutely no need for two days! I thought the same thing of IFBcon. I was ready to bounce by lunchtime, but decided to stick around ’till the end, even though I would have killed for a brownie mid-afternoon.
My legs were freezing on Day 1, so I avoided this problem by rocking these gorgeous pants I recently got from Marshalls. This look is a bit more punk than what I usually wear, but I’m always happy to step out of my comfort zone, especially when it comes to fashion.
