Lucky FABB 2013: Day 1

4:53 PM

Last week, I had the incredible privilege of attending Lucky Magazine's FABB (Fashion and Beauty Bloggers) Conference.  It was held at the SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills, which was absolutely amazing!  The point of the conference was to help bloggers learn more about how to make their blogs better, grow their brand/business, and network with other bloggers and brands.  Everyone that attended was hand picked by Lucky, so it was amazing that I had the chance to go.  There were so many incredible speakers there, including Drew Barrymore and Betsey Johnson (!!!), so I thought I would share my experience with you guys!

On Wednesday night, I met the Poshmark girls (Kate of Undeniable Style, Adiel of It's Because I Think Too Much, and Amanda of Fashionblee Me), along with some other fellow Poshmark users (Rosie, Delaney of Lover of Clothes, and Kate of All Things Kate) at Lola's for a pre-FABB cocktail party!

My mom and I stayed at a hotel on Wednesday night, and I brought all of these just to figure out what I was wearing on Thursday.  As I said on Instagam, I'm not an overpacker.  I come prepared.

Dress: Kate Spade (old but similar here). Jacket: JCP. Shoes: Comfort View. Bag: Kenneth Cole Reaction. Belt: similar. Watch: Michael Kors. Bracelets: Kate Spade (old, but similar here), Forever 21 (old), Bauble Bar.

Drew Barrymore was there talking about her new beauty line, Flower, which is now available at Walmart.  She was so inspiring and down to earth!  Definitely one of my top girl crushes.

The fabulous Betsey Johnson.  She had so much energy, especially for a 70 year old!

Betsey showed a preview of her new reality show, XOS Betsey Johnson, which premieres on May 12 on the Style Network.

It was such an amazing day filled with so much amazing information and people!  Stay tuned for a recap of day 2 coming in a few days!
