Live From New York: A recap of the NYC conference (to be continuously updated)

9.02.2009

So it's 2 am here in NYC, and I'm sitting in the ASTOUNDING Gramercy park hotel with my 3 lovely room mates Krystal, Katy, and Lucretia


props to krystal to catching a shot of our room before it was covered in our luggage

...and I have absolutely NO idea how I'm gonna cram this astounding weekend into one post...

DAY 1
- sept. 4th

When I arrived to the hotel on friday, I was practically shaking from the worst combination of excitement, anxiousness, and nervousness. I was greeted by the AMAZING Weardrobe team responsible for this whole shindig; Suzanne, Rich, and Jessica.

Jessica in the perfect accessory for summer in NYC


I was completely amazed, you guys. When all 21 of us were congregated, it was stunning seeing everyone almost stepping out of their blog pictures, and into the real world.

The day followed on with a photoshoot with Eddie Newton, and opening swag bags courtesy of the sponsors of this wonderful event

DAY 2!

I didn't lose my photos after all!!
We were given these awesome Flip photocams so that we could document our trip through videos that will at some point turn into one super awesome feature

MORE shopping followed as we stopped off at some of my favorite vintage stores in all of NY, Beacon's Closet, Buffalo Exchange, and the intense Artists & Fleas market, where I found me some awesome handmade jewelry and equally awesome characters.

DAY 3!
sept 6th

Our last day here...everyone was giddy in the morning as some of us donned some of our new digs from the shopping adventure in Brooklyn. I myself was wearing a Vintage sequin tube dress that I had bought a few weeks before in a little vintage shop in the east village along with a thrifted Gap denim blazer & a Vintage white beaded clutch

These nameless puppies needed a home when I saw them in Beacon's...aren't they nuts?!! I couldn't resist the über simple streamline design...and in my size for once!

We had a photoshoot with the amazing Craig at Altamira & drew quite a crowd!!

Если врач знает название вашей болезни, это еще не значит, что он знает что это такое. Никогда не приписывай человеческой зловредности того, что можно объяснить обыкновенной глупостью. Человек может долго жить на деньги которые он ждет. Реальность это иллюзия вызываемая отсутствием алкоголя. Женщины едят за разговорами, мужчины едят заедой.
