I'll be recapping my entire experience from the two-day Independent Fashion Bloggers (IFB) Conference on Friday ... but for now I wanted to share my outfit from day one :)

I instantly loved this dress when I saw it -- it reminded me of the dress that designer Patricia came up with the first week on Project Runway.

I love the full skirt -- I feel really sassy in this dress!  I love the full skirt, the pleats and the abstract pattern.
