Happy First Day of Fashion Week!

Yesterday, I was honored to speak at the Independent Fashion Blogger’s Conference for the 2nd time.
I, along with Aimee Song of Song of Style, Kristin Ess of The Beauty Department, Justin Livington of Scout Sixteen, Joe Adolph of Nordstrom, and Scott Allan of Linkshare talked about the super sexy topic of affiliate marketing.
If you don’t know what that is, it’s basically the organic process of making a commission off of products you suggest to your readership. Because we talk about shopping so much, affiliate marketing is essential to us keeping the lights on here at TFB;)
After chatting on stage, I grabbed pictures with Former Bombshells and Fashion Bomb readers, including Kan of Kanskloset.com, Ariana of ShopaholicUndercover.com, Kelly W of IslandChic77.com, Crislex of Plastic Kitten, and many more.




For the occasion, I stuck to my preppy predilections, but added a jazzy twist with a Rag & Bone Gold Suit, an Etro button down, and Valentino pumps.

I traded in my neon Proenza Schouler PS1 for a metallic plum PS11.

And accessorized with various rings, delicate necklaces, and Noir studded earrings.

Since it’s always chilly in NYC, I threw on a Theory Cassius fur

And was ready for my next event (I attended the Red Dress Collection later on, review to come). Look who I ran into:

At any rate, what do you think?
