So, yesterday morning I noticed a peculiar rise in my blog hits and couldn't quite understand where all of these new, fabulous readers were coming from

it wasn't until later when I installed a link history viewer when I found out...

Speaking of which...
These pics were taken a few days ago...I've come down with a really bad cold since then & let's just say I'm not exactly "camera ready" as of now...

This shirt is pretty awesome, I gotta say. It came out of the Weardrobe Conference goodie bag and it's by Cheap Monday. The slouchy shape is too awesome and too comfortable, I'd honestly wear it everyday to school if only for the comfort factor
The quirky design is a plus too...

!!!!!!YOU GUYSSSSSS! IT'S FASHION WEEK!!!!!!!

We all already know this, but Spring 2010 is gonna be totally gorgeous
Doo.Ri totally blew me away, I thought every piece had the most amazing movement and the combo of feminine, sheer ruffles & the occasional flouncy pieces were really interesting with such a muted palate

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!
sept. 5th
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

Then we shuffled on over across the street to the Fredflare shop...SOO cute! We were all like kids in a candy store (click the link for more pictures & info!)

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
