As you already know, I recently attended the 2014 Lucky FABB Conference in Los Angeles, California! Like any other jubilant fashion blogger, I came home with an overload of pictures! Therefore I decided a picture story would be a great way of sharing my Day 1 experience at Lucky FABB!
The Conference was held at the posh SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills! I borrowed this picture from the SLS website as despite the hundreds of photos I took, none of them could possibly capture the beauty of the venue quite like this photo.
As I strutted towards the main entrance, I was completely aroused at the sight of hundreds of impeccably dressed women (and a few men) just beaming with excitement for the day ahead!
I met up with a few of the lovely ladies I had met the previous night at the SEXY HAIR Soiree to join forces as “conference buddies.”
Upon entry I received my Lucky FABB badge, access card and conference portfolio! This got me very excited!
We then proceeded to the delectable breakfast buffet for “blogger fuel” in the form of croissants, pastries, fruit, mini yogurt parfaits, juices and of course, coffee!
After breakfast it was time for panel discussions with industry professionals, celebrities and high- bloggers!
First up, the hilarious, playful and very stylish editor in chief of Lucky Magazine, Eva Chen sat down with Nicole Richie, creative director of House of Harlow 1960 . I loved hearing her talk about how most of her inspirations for her jewelry line come from her love of old vintage jewelry, especially her mother’s collection. She also talked about her extensive home fruit and vegetable garden which she and her family cultivate.
Next up was the incredibly inspirational #girlboss, Sophia Amoruso, founder and CEO of Nasty Gal . She spoke about how she turned Nasty Gal Vintage, an eBay store she ran out of her San Francisco apartment into Nasty Gal, Inc., a multi-million dollar corporation. Look out for the release of her first book titled #GIRLBOSS out May 6th! Isn’t her colorful vintage NastyGal frock EVERYTHING!! Oh and those shoes tho!! I really enjoyed this discussion! Thank you Sophia!
In between panel discussions we had some time off to meet with several brand representatives and play dress up with all the FABB accessories and goodies!
Oh yeah, there were jewelry making and mini manicure stations too!!
Then it was time to grub on the yummy lunch buffet provided by Lucky Magazine and the SLS Hotel!
The next discussion featured the incredibly gorgeous January Jones from Madmen who spoke about her cover story on the digital magazine and luxury beauty product merchant, Violet Grey. She is magnetically beautiful. I was in awe of her beauty and quite frankly Ms. Jones is my new girl crush! I even (finally) started watching Madmen because of my encounter with Ms. Jones. She wore a stunning Dorothee Schumacher dress that zipped from both top to bottom and bottom to top = sexy!
Drooling over January Jones had me feeling a bit parched. Luckily it was time to enjoy some delicious cocktails courtesy of Miss Me and La Marca Prosecco and network with the rest of the Lucky Fabb Bloggers!
After cocktails it was time for the last panel discussion of the day, “A Style Conversation with Coco Rocha”! This woman is hilarious, down to earth, big-hearted and a supermodel! She spoke about her collaboration with Model Alliance, a non-profit organization dedicated to protecting the rights of young models. She also expressed her severe dislike of the #selfie, something I found pretty hysterical.
I’m not going to lie, by the end of the day I was exhausted! It’s not easy being FABB! Lol! Day 1 of Lucky FABB was an invaluable and unforgettable experience I will always cherish. I met so many sweet, intelligent, inspiring and fabulous women and learned a vast amount of FABB information!
