Lucky FABB: Bloggers You’ll Love

One of the major reasons that I attended the Luck Magazine hosted Fashion & Beauty Blogger Conference Lucky FABB West, and why I went to New York in February for IFBCON, was the chance to meet other fashion & beauty obsessed writers. It’s amazing how quickly you can jump into a friendship with someone who shares the same loves and passions! 🙂

So with that in mind here are some of the amazing women that I met at Lucky FABB:

Donna from So You Agree… I met Donna at the airport on my way down to LA and it was pretty much love-at-first-talk. Is that a thing? I say yes!

Beth Ann of Beth Animal Print After our one-on-one breakfast last Friday I knew Beth Ann and I would become fast friends – Not only does she have a fabulous sense of style, the cutest kid ever, and a lovely blog, she also has a very cool job at YouTube and I don’t think we stopped talking for even 5 seconds during the span of breakfast! 🙂

{Law of Fashion, So You Agree, Crazy Tall model, SF Shop Girl, Moi & Beth Animal Print}

Linsey from Law of Fashion Had me laughing nearly to the point of tears within minutes of meeting her. Enough said.

Elizabeth of A Keene Sense of Fashion Is a stunning LA-based blogger who blew me away with her friendliness & great attitude – I love meeting people in line for events. 🙂

Carlina of Allergic To Vanilla I’m not going to lie – Carlina’s gorgeous metallic belt is what first caught my attention, but I was thrilled to find out that not only is she absolutely the sweetest, she’s also an SF-based blogger!

Beth Jones of B.Jones Style Caught my eye from across the room the first day in her stone washed denim dress w/ a great Moschino belt and I was equally impressed by her great modern-boho vibe in the frayed, belted dress above.

Mara of M Loves M I’m a huge fan of stripes so Mara’s adorable black & white striped full skirt really stood out to me on Day Two of the conference. I was pleased to discover that the fellow Berkeley alum not only has a great blog but works in fashion for a site that I adore.

{Moi & The Subtle Statement}

And while I previously met Brittany of The Subtle Statement and Alex of SF Shop Girl they still deserve honorable mention since I spent most of my time in LA with them on this trip.

I highly recommend checking out these blogs and you’ll discover some amazing writers and fun, fashionable ladies!

Tell me the truth, is there anything better than making new friends who share your interests & passions?


Styling 101: How To Wear Chambray

One of my staples for 2013 has already become this killer chambray shirt from TopShop. This style of shirt is incredibly versatile – You can easily dress it up or dress it down, and take it from daytime to nighttime with just a change of accessories.

While tucking a chambray shirt into a cute a-line mini skirt is a fun look for later this Spring when the weather starts to warm up – These chilly February days call for a little more coverage. Enter the cropped pant. If you’ve been window shopping lately you’ve probably seen the plethora of fabulous pants for Spring – Tons of prints and brights – From polka dots and plaids to tweed and silk.

This purple pair of crops are the perfect color to mix with this pale blue denim shirt – This way the tan coat and black accessories can take backseat while the pants & shirt are the center of attention.
