This past Saturday, I was offered the awesome opportunity to participate on the keynote panel of the Blogging While Brown Conference alongside Necole Bitchie, Karen Civil, and Angel Laws of Concrete Loop.
The subject was “From Blogging to Empire Building“, and we chatted about the positives and negatives of blogging, and also offered pointers on how to turn your hobby into a business (the short answer: mix passion with hard work).
The ladies who shared the stage with me are not only colleagues, but are also inspirations, so it was an exciting moment–and hopefully a foreshadowing of even more fabulous things to come.
Faith was traveling and Cliché got the times mixed up, but Jihan did come through in a spring ready Equipment striped shirt and Zara floral pants, topped off by a Jewelmint Necklace and Aldo white pumps.
As for me, I slipped on one of my (and Jihan’s) favorite designers, Mary Katrantzou, specifically her Spring 2013 printed long sleeve blouse and Venezuela skirt.
I accessorized with Proenza Schouler Silver Sandals, a Baublebar Twitter nameplate necklace, vintage sunnies, and my favorite Proenza plum bag.
Apparently Necole and Angel took video of the proceedings, so I’ll update the post once I get a link.
Until then, what do you think of my conference look?
