Sarah May and I in the crowd at the Independent Fashion Blogger's Conference held this past September at Milk Studios, NYC
Just over a month ago, I hit the road with the ever-lovely Ms. Sarah May (vintage retailer, Fashion Matchmaker, creator of Hunt. Gather. Fashion. & our regular featured guest blogger) bound for NYC. I have done quite a lot of traveling since then, hence the delay in getting this post up, but now that I am finally back home I decided it was time to share the first part of my adventure with you!
We set off in our little mini SUV rental and took to the highways. Our destination? The Independent Fashion Blogger's Conference! I was tres excited - I love NYC (my old hometown) and early autumn is one of the absolute best times to go - and doubly so, because I would be accompanying Sarah on her inaugural visit to Gotham City!
After torrential downpours, a harrowing drive and a poor, suffering, sick Sarah, we arrived later than expected and so, headed right to bed! The next day was the IFBCon and we had to be up bright and early.
Some of our fave blogger's were on this panel: Leandra Medine a.k.a The Manrepeller, far left and Lauren & Erica BFF's and co-creators of Honestly...WTF, splitting center
Another marvy panel! This time we got the lovely (and fellow Canadian) Coco Rocha, far right and, Ari Goldberg, CEO of Stylcaster, next to her (He was my all-time favorite of the whole day - he was great!)
Even though it was a rainy grey day and Sarah was still under the weather, the conference was a great success! I got to meet old friends (in person!), make new ones and I even got my hair and nails did!
I got to meet Wendy Brandes, jewellery designer extrodinaire and one our C&C ladies! She is wearing her famous logo dress!
Even when she's sick, she works! Maybe all work and no play is what makes you sick...?
Doesn't it look like I'm having fun?
My awesome Minx nails! My fuchsia Rebecca Minkoff makes a rather fetching backdrop, don't you think?
Our trip to New York was just one of many I was lucky enough to take over the summer/early fall, and it was definitely one of my faves. Now... Sarah May and I need to get planning our next adventure. Treasure hunting, anyone?
