Happy Monday!
This past weekend, I attended the very 1st Style Bloggers of Color Conference down in Atlanta, Georgia:

I was honored to be the Conference’s keynote speaker, and tell all the fellow bloggers in the room a little about my story, and lessons I’ve learned since launching the Fashion Bomb in August 2006.

I was super nervous, but I think it went well! And the icing on the cake was that I won the Social Media and Style Blogger of the Year Awards!

It was such a pleasure to see and share my story with former Bombshells and current friends including my girl Marie Denee aka the Curvy Fashionista:

Jean Claude and Sai of the blog Because I am Fabulous.

Mattie of the blog Mattieologie.com, who organized everything down to the most minute detail.

And many, many more!

As for my outfit, I decided to play a bit with colorblocking in a pink and blue snake print dress by Sandro, accented by lace up blue Jimmy Choo Gladys sandals:

I continued with colors with an American Apparel oversized clutch in yellow, purple YSL lipstick, and gold cuffs by Aqua:

It was a great day, and I’m so honored! Style Blogger of the Year? Yay!

What do you think?
Many many thanks to everyone who has contributed to the Fashion Bomb’s success in the past and present, including Jihan, Faith, Ashley, and Zillz! Thanks to Mattie and to all my fellow style bloggers for your support. You’re the bomb.
