I attended the IFB Conference yesterday and I'm still hyped from all the action. It was a sea of "sky high fall to your death" platforms, vintage sequins, flowing maxis, hats of every size and shape, dazzling bobble cocktail rings, drool worthy vintage belts and awing ensembles. I couldn't get my mind around being surrounded by such fashion. I literally sat in my seat and just absorbed the frenzy of chatter, the quick zig zagging of thumbs on iphones, the clicking of stilettos and the flashing from the camera's. It was kind of surreal to be surrounded by what I always wanted to be a part of.
Emily from Scarlett Letter Style.
She was so nice and sweet and her ensemble was F'ing ridiculous and pretty much the best in the house in my opinion. Love her hand made necklace too!
He called me his wife before I even knew him lol. Super cool guy with great fashion style. His name is Curran and you can check him out at Kings Rule Together.
She actually won the ticket to the IFB Conference! And she worked hard for it too. Everytime I looked up she was networking, moving and shaking. She earned those tickets and looked fab while doing so in this vintage thrifted sequin top.

There was also a lot of cool venues in the building such as Levis with their Shape What's To Come promotion. I was measured for my perfect jean and got a ticket for a free pair...who's pysched...ME! Shopbop.com was also there and had a great Best Dressed Blogger Contest. Lordy Lordy Lord I hope I won! Aldo was also there showing some hot shoes.
Later we made our way to the Chelsea Room for a very chill party. The open bar was also pretty awesome even though I only had coke. Hey I had to be to work this morning at 8 a.m.! I'm responsible lol!
These fashionistas were so cool. We had to hop in a cab and get over to the Chelsea Room because it was just "too damn cold" to stand outside waiting for that shuttle bus!
NYC Bloggers Unite! LOL
Me, Sahra and Vanil from The Vintage Devil
These two were my unofficial possey for the evening at Chelsea Room.
Overall...I had an AMAZING time and can't wait for the next conference because I will be there with bells on and sequins and whatever else I can fit into one outfit! The networking was just out of this stratosphere. It was a real treat. For those who didn't get to go I hope you got some sense of what it was like through my photos and content. I will be posting later about the awesometastic gift bags too! So Stayed tuned darlings! For now I'm off to another Fashion Week Event at the W Hotel. Stayed tuned for photos. Oh and I had a major vintage fashion STEELE today...sneak peek tomorrow!
