Last Wednesday, I hopped on a train and headed to New York for Lucky Magazine's LuckyFABB Conference. The buzz leading up to the conference had me beyond exerburant to get there. Plus, as I attended last September, I knew that this year Lucky was going to up the ante - and they absolutely did not disappoint.

Here's what I wore, in case you were curious...

And let's not forget about the fashion bloggers. Homegirls brought the style - arms stacked with bangles and baubles, dope shoes, and printed pants like whoa. Plus, after months of talking to some of my blogging buddies on Twitter, I finally met these fashionable dames in the flesh!

With a theme of "making it on your own", speakers, panelists and industry insiders, including Raman Kia, who gave us the low down on traffic and analytics, to everyone's favorite arm partier, The Man Repeller, shared tidbits on all things fashion, as well as words of wisdom to help give us bloggers the kick in the arse we need to make our blogs bigger and better. 


Check out some of my favorite moments from the conference!

Simon Doonan of Barneys and the always cool Anna Sui gabbed about Anna's stardom, and influences which includes nods to punk music and glam rock growing up in Detroit.
I was thrilled to hear that both Anna and Simon dislike the topknot.
