Lucky FABB West 2013 Recap

Events, Travel

Last Thursday & Friday I had the amazing opportunity to attend Lucky Magazine’s Lucky FABB conference. If you don’t know much about Lucky FABB, it’s a two-day conference hosted by Lucky Magazine that brings together influential fashion and beauty bloggers with brands and celebrities. The conference is essentially invite-only and I was so honored to actually be selected to attend. This time last year I was a shy newbie to the blogging world, and if you would have told me that the following year I’d get to attend one of the best fashion blogger conferences I probably would have laughed myself silly!

I have to admit that hardest part of the entire conference was figuring out what to wear! I’ve attended many conferences for professional development and the “uniform” for that is always pretty standard. Wear your nice work clothes and you’ll fit in great! However, when you know you’re going to be in a room surrounded by some of the best fashion bloggers, the rules change a bit! Packing was extremely difficult!

This year’s FABB West was hosted at the SLS Beverly Hills in California. Delaney and I were lucky enough to stay at the hotel. It’s always super convenient to stay at the hotel where a conference is hosted! The event kicked off bright and early on Thursday morning with over 250 top fashion and beauty bloggers! You can see the full speakers list here, but some of my personal favorites were Kelly Osbourne, Tina Craig of BagSnob.com, Drew Barrymore, and Betsey Johnson. We also heard from blogging “greats” such as Elle & Blaire Fowler of Elle and Blair and Emily Schumann of Cupcakes & Cashmere. The second day was filled with breakout sessions and brand experience booths and of course more networking with some amazing bloggers!

It was such an honor and amazing experience to participate in Lucky FABB West 2013. To be surrounded by, and meet so many incredible women who are passionate about blogging, I’m excited to come back from the conference and start implementing some of the many tips and tricks I learned!

Oh, and I was lucky enough to meet and snap a pic with Betsey Johnson!!
