Lucky FABB NY Part I

Hi there!  Yes, I’m still alive.  I didn’t schedule any blog posts while I was in New York because I intended to blog about the Lucky FABB conference during the week.  So much for intentions.  As always, the trip was too short, I gained at least five pounds, had SO MUCH FUN, and wanted more time with my family and new blogger friends.

Pre-conference kicked off with a Lucky/ Aloxxi event at Gemma in the Bowery Hotel.  Aloxxi is a new hair color line of products started by the founder of OPI.  We all know our OPI favorite colors like ‘Lincoln Park after Dark’, and he wants the same to apply when asking for our hair color.  My hair personality is ‘Expresso Yourself’.  The night ended on a high note when I met Lauren Friedman of My Closet in Sketches.  She is the Dear Lucky illustrator, and seriously one of the sweetest and coolest gals!  Check out the amazing sketch she did of me in just a couple of minutes!  Isn’t she so cute too?

The excitement and intrepidation on the morning of Lucky FABB was overwhelming.  I was so nervous about my outfit that I was asking MY BROTHER for fashion advice!  Luckily, he’s an understanding brother.  And of course, I forgot a hair dryer so my hair was wonky during this trip.  Oh well, you can only do what you can do.
The theme of Lucky FABB was “Quit Your Day Job” and the itinerary of speakers was amazing… Rachel Zoe, Lauren Conrad, Simon Doonan, and Anna Sui to name a few.  If you follow me on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter then you saw the #luckyFABB bombardment until my phone died that afternoon.  You can read more about the interviews here and here.  I walked away with new inspiration and a huge swag bag!  Later that evening, I enjoyed the most amazing dinner with my new friends AshleyBethanyLindsey, and Mary Beth at Pipa {pictured above}.  Fabulous sangria, great company, and stimulation conversations – #couldn’tgetbetter!

Hope you enjoyed my quick recap!  Stayed tuned for Part II coming up!

  1. Oh gosh. I want to be able to quit my day job. If there was one thing you learned that was most important what would you say it was?

    1. Gosh Suzzie, that’s a hard one! I think the most important thing was to ‘Stay true to yourself, but try to be different from everyone else.’ I think it’s pretty difficult because there are so many bloggers out there, but what makes you special is you! Hope that helps! xo

  2. I need to send you all of my pics!! You know my phone was dead like the whole time so Im sorry! SO SO much fun with you:)

  3. wow…your trip sounded amazing…so glad to meet you finally.

    about Rachel Z’s comments…i actually saw her reality show the part she was pregnant and moved…well, the part she treated her staff for the interior decoration was pretty brutal. i guess for her, once she’s on top she doesn’t need to be nice…lol…or her husband was the devil.

    1. You know it’s funny because I’ve never seen her show {we don’t have cable}. But in her interview, she was a very modest person and was so inspiring!

  4. This looks like such a fun time! I really hope I can go next year. Great recap of the events and highlighted quotes. Simon Doonan is such a character, love your quote from him!

  5. Wow, thank you for sharing all of this! I feel like I lived through you during the time and wish I could have gone (and MET YOU! :) ) I love all of these photos, your outfit was FABULOUS! :) Glad you got to meet new friends and I would have died to hear Rachel Zoe and Lauren Conrad speak!


    1. Oh Rachel, that would be so much fun!! And I was DYING every time a speaker came out – they were great! Hopefully, you can go next year {and I can too} and we can meet! xo

  6. Fabulous! You’re so lucky to have been able to attend this event/conference! Love the sketch of you :) And the quote you shared is very fitting for the last 4 years of my life!

  7. I swear I haven’t been stalking your blog for a conference recap.. did not disappoint loll.

  8. Gorgeous photos :) Loved Rachel’s advice… here’s to hoping! I see so many cruel people clawing their way to the top and I’m still trying to be nice. Hopefully one day it will pay off *phew*

  9. You looked like you had a fabulous time. I’m sure I sound like a broken record but your blog just gets better and better. AND you look more and more stunning. If that’s at all possible!!! How fabulous that you got to catch up with June. I love the quotes. They make perfect sense and are great reminders that we all need from time to time.
