*You can catch part I of New York here, and what I wore here.
It would be impossible to cram all of the highlights of the IFB Conference in one post, so I hope you enjoy the few that I am sharing today:) Blogging is a funny thing. Its a world that is hard to explain to your neighbor, your friends, and even your family. It has its own lingo, its own fashion trends, and effects your own lifestyle. This was a day geared for bloggers to encourage, inspire, and gather our blogger worlds under one roof. I actually don't consider myself a fashion blogger.
These girls had some really cool stories to share and practical advice (which I find most helpful).
I have to mention some of the entrepreneurs I had the pleasure of meeting throughout the day who turned out to be completely genuine, authentic, and sweet as ever. You only hope bloggers and creatives you love are as wonderful in person as you imagine. Well good news friends.... these women totally are: Jennine Jacob, Katie Rodgers, Katie Armour, Bri Emery, Kendi Sheen, Cori Robinson, Jessie Artigue, Amy Anderson, Mackenzie Horan, Hilary Rushford...to name a few!
Creative genius Bri Emery was as down to earth and personal as they come. She obviously has a gift to inspire others, hence why her brain child Blogshop (crash course for photoshop) is taking the blogosphere by storm! If you haven't had the chance to check it out, you can see their current tour here. Good news for Atlanta friends...she is heading our way!
Side note - It really struck me that Bare Escentuals founder Leslie Blodgett came out to be with all of the attendees and just hang out. She was such a breath of fresh air. That alone, made me want to be a loyal customer for life.
In between panel talks, you could browse and interact with fun-tastic booths such as Mailchimp's photobooth and DIY tee station, Creative manis with Julep Nails, and Foundation matching at Bare Escentuals bar. Such a fun set up!
And of course, what's a Fashion Blogger's Conference without highlighting some winners?...
(Fashion bloggers who know how to throw a mean top knot:
I couldn't help but spot some seriously awesome stripes courtesy of Hilary Rushford and blogger who didn't have a biz card! (Let me know if you recognize:))
I left the day feeling very blessed to connect with so many rockstars.
So thankful to Gabe for pushing me to go, and who took the day off of work to stay with the babes - what would I do without that boy? Hope you all get the chance to attend one day!
