It was so fun seeing all the other bloggers, and pretty much every possible trend out right now, x100. Peplum tops, printed pants, sock buns, stacks of bracelets - the pressure to look your best was ON.
At the conference we got to hear from the editor of Lucky, the president of Macy's, bloggers like PS I Made this and The Man Repeller (who is married, by the way, and therefore has failed in her mission).
Of course most people were quite excited about Rachel Zoe and Lauren Conrad, but having never watched either of their shows, I found Anna Sui to be the most engaging of all the guests. It was basically her childhood dream to become a designer, and she went out and did it. She travels all over getting inspiration, and keeps an entire closet full of pages torn from magazines. Loved hearing her.
There were also tons of vendors offering up contests and giveaways, most of which I managed to miss out on because there wasn't enough time unless you skipped out on hearing the guests. They also ran over, so the half hour which was allotted for lunch was only 15 minutes.
Overall I thought it was a well run conference, considering it was only one day - however if I were to attend again, I would pick and choose which speakers I wanted to hear and give myself some time to enjoy the things the vendors have to offer (hello - free clothes - I missed out on the free clothes!) and also take more time to network with the other bloggers. I didn't exchange cards with a single blogger all day!
There was barely even time for outfit photos, but since I was debuting my printed pants, I dragged Meg outside and made darn sure we got some!
