Day 2 of LuckyFABB was spent shopping in Soho! We started off having brunch at the Crosby Hotel (where I had an awesome celebrity sighting: GEOFFREY RUSH!!!) with Lucky editors and Piperlime. Our first stop after brunch was Piperlime's brand new store, where we were the first ever shoppers! We continued by stopping at Aritzia, Topshop, Kate Spade and Calypso St. Barth. I posted photos from inside the stores on my Facebook because there were too many, check them out!

This was my favorite day in New York by far. I met some new friends; Nikki, Ashley, Bethany, Alexandria, and more! AND I finally had the pleasure of hanging out with Mary in person after following her blog for quite some time, she's awesome!

UPDATE: Yes, this is the same fabric as yesterday's skirt. I had my mom make another with our leftover fabric. This time with the scalloped edge. (we wanted that on the other skirt but it wasn't working out properly) 
We were lucky enough to receive gift cards for Piperlime and Aritzia, so I picked up a pair of Genetic Denim aztec print jeans at Piperlime and some Maison Scotch printed pants and T.Babaton cashmere sweater at Aritzia!

LuckyFABB Day 1 was insane! We woke up at 6:45, got ready and headed off to the Times Center to wait in line. After we got in, there was some mingling before heading into the main room for our first panel: "How to Make it on your Own Terms" with Brandon Holley (Lucky) and Terry Lundgren (Macy's).  Next it was a panel with Lauren Sherman (Lucky,) Leandra Medine (Man Repeller,) Leah Chernikoff (Fashionista) and Annie Georgia Greenberg (Refinery29.)  Finally, we had a Google Analytics lesson from Raman Kia before a coffee break and checking out some booths.

After that we had the pleasure of listening to Rachel Zoe talk to Brandon Holley.  "The Next Wave" with Lauren Sherman, Steven Kolb (CFDA,) Mitch Grossback (CAA,) Shana Fisher (High Line Venture Partners) and Federico Marchetti (Yoox) talked about what is next for bloggers and how the industry is changing.  Next we heard from Susan Lyne (Gilt,) Lauren Bush Lauren (FEED,) Aliza Licht (DKNY) and Erica Domesek (P.S. I made this...) about Amplifying our Brands.

We then broke into some Breakout Sessions after lunch. I was sitting in on "How Do I Look?," a chat on how your blog looks to brands and "Developing Your Voice."  Everyone reconvened in the main conference room to hear Lauren Conrad. Finally we had the opportunity of listening to a chat between Simon Doonan (Barney's) and the lovely Anna Sui! That was the highlight of my experience.  After all the panels were complete, there was a cocktail party with munchies.

Lydia and I left soon after and headed back to our hotel to rest our feet. Then we quickly headed out for dinner (Chinese food) and some ice cream. Quite the busy day!  And, if you made it through all of that, here are some photos of my outfit!

Skirt: Made by Mom [inspired by Michael Kors], Jacket: Theyskens' Theory (Nordstrom Rack) $180, Top: Splendid (net-a-porter) $32, Sandals: Miu Miu (eBay), Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs "Aidan" (shopbop), Bracelets c/o 31 Bits, Watch: Michael Kors, Necklace: Vanessa Mooney giveaway, Sunglasses: Marc by Marc Jacobs (Shopbop) gift card
Continuing on with the LuckyFABB outfits, Tuesday evening we headed of to the Bowery Hotel for the Lucky and Aloxxi Pre-FABB cocktail party!  I was so excited when Lucky invited me to this event because we were going to get hair color consultations from experts and then have Lauren of My Closet in Sketches draw us!

It was such a fun event and I met lots of new friends such as Lucy, Sam and Courtney. I also had the pleasure of meeting and chatting for a while with Clemmy of Lucky, another wonderful woman! We even got to meet Nicole, the namesake of Nicole by OPI, she was so nice and we were obsessed with her Sandro dress (I couldn't find it online, sadly)!

Dress: Edun (The Outnet) $100,  Heels: Lanvin $82, Bag: Chanel, Bracelets c/o 31 Bits, Watch: Michael Kors
In case you were wondering, my hair color personality is "A Brunette for Casanova," how cute is that?! All their hair colors have fun names, just like the OPI nail colors (because they are owned by the same person)

Let the NYC and LuckyFABB recap posts begin! Today you get my arrival look. On Tuesday, Lydia and I headed off to New York City.  I wanted to be comfortable but still chic, enter: my T by Alexander Wang ruched skirt!  It was the perfect travel outfit, the skirt is so versatile I'm surprised it took me this long to buy it. (Perhaps the same thing would happen with the Acne Pistols, but I just can't spend $570 on them!)

Stay tuned for three other outfits I wore while in NYC (I didn't take photos of my last look...oops!)

Skirt:  T by Alexander Wang (net-a-porter), Tank: Ellen Tracey (Marshalls) $12, Flats: Marc by Marc Jacobs (Shopbop) $95, Bracelets c/o 31 Bits, Watch: Michael Kors, Necklace: Vanessa Mooney giveaway, Sunglasses: Marc by Marc Jacobs (Shopbop) gift card
