Thursday morning was an early one for a girl on pacific time but my adrenaline took over. After a quick costume change at JFK and tackling make up application in the taxi I had arrived at the Hudson Hotel in plenty of time for the Evolving Influence conference. Surrounded by bloggers who eat, breathe and live fashion like myself with iPhones and laptops handy, I was in heaven. Here are a few highlights:
GalaDarling.com spoke about how the city of New York City has changed her life and blog forever. One of my favorite quotes from her was "I believe in making money from art. Blogging is an art." She was so well spoken and very engaging plus how adorable.
Style Bubble had me from hello. She shared her story of how she has made her way from working in Editorial to giving up a steady job to follow her love of fashion blogging whcih has now lead to styling The Ting Tings. I still can't stop thinking about Susie's jewelry, I want!
Cupcakes and Cashmere. I have been an admirning fan of Emily's long past my own blogging days and was in awe by the words she spoke. Her well written speech with accompanying photos depicted her blog to perfection. She stressed that is important that with compelling content, intriguing pictures and clean layout you can be a successful blogger.
Now if you can only imagine the outfits in a room full of fashion bloggers it was sometimes hard to concentrate on the speakers. I spied these Miu Miu shoes on one attendee and the feather clutch from an adorable blogger Teryn Frances from Toronto.
Independent Fashion Blogger conference was an amazing event I wish I could spill every detail about. You'll just have to wait for the next to really see what it is all about! For more pictures from the event check out the Just B facebook page.
