How are my sweets doing?  Fab I hope! 
I wore this on Sunday to go with my hunny to AC.  We had a 3 day weekend and it was awesome to relax and have Monday off.  It's been pretty cold here in NJ considering it's fall. 

I've been the layering queen lately.  Anything not to wear a bulky coat!  I was gifted this top when I attended LuckyFabb and it's super soft and super comfy.  I wanna live in it!  It went perfect with my new burgundy booties, I got on sale at Macy's.  These boots are perfect for fall!

Hi there sweets!

  Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  I should have posted this last week but I've been so busy. 

Day 2 of LuckyFabb was so different from day 1. 

First of all it was at the Condé Nast Building.  Home of Lucky Magazine and Vogue!  Forget trying to even get on their floor, security was tighter than at the White House.  

We had to pick our sessions for day 2.  My first session was "Beauty Scoope" with Covergirl, Pantene, & Secret.  I use and love all of these products, so it was super fun to learn some inside.

Selfie with Lissette during our session!

My 2nd session was with the awesome Leandra Medine from The Man Repeller!  I LOVE her blog!

In my eyes no one does men's wear like Leandra.  From slacks, to over sized coats; she brings it!
She was so funny and sweet!

After a morning of sessions, a few of us headed to lunch.  We went to HB Burger and it was yummy!

My burger was delish!

After lunch I had a street style session with Canon.  I was super excited to learn how to work my camera.  It was very informative!

LuckyFabb is just that.....FABB!  After all the sessions we took home the mama of all gift bags! We got them on our way out so I didn't take a pic but lets just say they were 70lbs.  So you can just imagine the insane amount of goodies we got! The downside?  Carrying that damn bag over 10 blocks through NYC!
 Oh look....I didn't even notice that you can see my gift bag in this pic.  Yup, it was huge!

Just like on my day 1, the party didn't stop there!  Some of us girls were invited to a private meetup with Lulu's, at STK in Midtown.  We had the opportunity to take a peek at their fall collection.  The other girls decided to change their outfits, I went the easy route.  Traded my flats for knee boots, and added a red lip.   Night time ready!

Thank you Stephanie and Lulu's for a wonderful evening and my fab coat!

I hope you enjoyed LuckyFabb through my eyes.  If you're a blogger and are debating whether to attend...just do it!  It was an awesome experience!  Can't wait till next year!

Thanks for visiting!  Have a great day!

LuckyFabb Fashion & Beauty Conference 2013 Day 1

Happy Friday Sweets! 
Before I even start talking about how amazing day 1 of LuckyFabb was, I have to start by telling you that I wasn't happy with my outfit choice.  I ordered a top to go with these pants and it didn't arrive on time.  Of course, it didn't!  I honestly didn't have a plan b so I literally through this on last minute. 

The top that I had ordered was a soft pink chiffon so I thought ok lets stay with that color scheme, and I went with this pink JLo sweater.  I honestly through the vest on because I didn't want to have to carry a jacket around all day, and it was pretty cold in the morning.  I now know that there is a coat check so next year that won't be a problem.  Even though I wasn't 100% happy with my outfit, I still thought I looked pretty cute!           

Pink Sweater: Jennifer Lopez for Kohl's
Vest: Mossimo (Target)
Burgundy Cords & booties: H & M

Ok lets talk LUCKYFABB!  I don't even know where to begin, so lets start in the beginning.  LuckyFabb is a fashion and beauty conference held in NYC over a two day period. I've never seen so many fashionable and beautiful ladies all in one place.  The minute I walked in and saw all the fabulosity, I knew it was going to be an awesome day.
All Access baby!

 Eva Chan was our first guest speaker.  She's the Editor In Chief of Lucky Magazine. 

 Eva Mendez looking gorgeous.  She has a beautiful new line at New York & Company. 
Eva asked Eva....hahaha!  What her go to piece was and she said "a scarf!"  She borrowed someones and of course, tied it up in this fab updo in less than 2 minutes. With no mirror and looked this fab!  I wouldn't have looked this if I had 2 mirrors!  You go Eva! 

Kate Bosworth also spoke to us about her line with Topshop.  I died over her metallic skirt!

Alisa Gould–Simon- Founder of Pose, Gabi Gregg from GABIFRESH and Erica Domesek-  P.S. I Made This. 

Panelists Lindsey Calla- Fashion Blogger and Stylist at Saucy Glossie, Amber Venz -Blogger and founder of Reward Style, Mattias Swenson- CEO of Bloglovin and Hayley Phelan- Fashion News Editor for Lucky
After a morning of panels which were filled with laughs and blog talk, we had lunch!
Chicken salad to go!  Thank you Lucky!  Of course I had lunch with my favorite ladies!

 Lissette RavenFashion

 Dhruvi Stilettos & Sequins

 I couldn't wait to meet my LA girls!  Love them!  Paulina Lil Bits Of Pau and Daisy Daisy's Fashion Garden

After lunch I headed to the "gifting suite" for some goodies!  Lucky I was able to score "All Access"


 L'OCCITANE hooked it up with one of their fabulous scents.  I've been wearing it ever since.

 Galian New York. 
I was gifted the fabulous black suede bag in front with the tassle.  I wanted the green but it was all gone! :(

Quinn I LOVE my scarf!

 Thank you Yosi Samra.  I LOVE my new flats! 

Kendra Phillips jewelry was so pretty!  I went with a cuff.

Julie Vos was stunning!  I went with the short chunky necklace on the left.  It was so hard to decide!

All for me!  Cheesin from ear to ear!

If you attend LuckyFabb, I suggest you go with the All Access pass. 

There was also another suite where all that attended could go and get their nails done with Nintendo, Charming Charlie was there giving away some awesome jewelry.  They had photo booths, contest, giveaways!  Oh Pantene, Paige Denim and a huge charging station.  Bloggers can't live without their phones!  Lol!   

I need a cord!  I need power!  Do you have an Iphone 4 or 5?  When I get to 20% then you can use it.  The phone madness was serious.  Luckily my friend Robyn let me borrow her extra battery pack.  Thanks love!

Mario Mani?  Yes please!

Photo booth fun with Pantene

We ended our day 1 with cocktails and appetizers. 

Lucky Magazine really went all out for us.  I had an awesome day.  I couldn't wait for day 2! 

The fun didn't stop there!  Lissette from Raven Fashion is friends with  Elizabeth from Fashion Climaxx and she invited us to her showroom.  She was so sweet!  Thanks for having me Elizabeth.

Loved this soft pink dress, so sweet.

My favorite shoe in the showroom.  I would probably break a tooth or something in that heel, but I still LOVE It!

I wish all my Thursdays could be this fun!  My feet hurt, I was starving, and I wouldn't have it any other way.  It was a long but fab day and I couldn't wait for day numero dos! 

Have a wonderful weekend!  Stay tuned for day 2 of LuckyFabb!
