Hello my dear fashionistas,
I realized this today that it officially been two months of moving to NYC! I cant believe how fast time has flown by. I remember getting on that one way flight to the city, nervous about what this decision would mean. But now I’m sitting here in an amazing apartment in Brooklyn, getting ready for my first day at the Victoria Secret Headquarters and I know that I made the right decision and now there is no going back.
Being in NY has opened the doors for so many new opportunities for me. I have been able to network with people that I look up to working in the Fashion Industry and really see what could be my life in a few years after living in this city. This past Saturday I got the chance to attend the Simply Stylist Conference at the Yotel Hotel near Times Square. Right when I was just one block away (running late as usual..) I met Lauren Bushnell crossing the street! But the surprises didn’t stop there, the day was filled with many more.
The all day event started bright and early, at 10 am, with an amazing brunch followed by 3 incredible panel discussions. Each panel, spread out during the course of the day, hit on multiple areas regarding the fashion industry. The first was the Blogger Panel which included: Holy Nichols from Nichols Illustrations, Jacey Duprie from Damsel in Dior and Kat Tanita from with love from Kat. The Entrepreneur Panel moderated by Deniese Caldwell from Style+Beauty Expert consisted of Liliana Vazquez from TheLVGuide.com, Claire Sulmers from Fashion Bomb Daily and Gwendolyn Floyd from Soko. Finally the Stylist Panel had Christine Cameron from My Style Pill, Joey Maalouf, the founder of The Glam App, Ashley Kiely from Style Watch and costume designer Jackie Demetrio.
All of these inspirational speakers talked in detail about the fashion industry and how to succeed no matter what path you choose. After the speakers I got a chance to get pampered with make up, hair and nails being done by The Glam App (which I loved! I consider you check them out!), French Connection displayed some of their gorgeous Fall must haves and had a fun Photo Booth and there was even a massage station!
I honestly didn’t want the day to end and I am counting down the days for the next one 🙂
For the event I wore a gorgeous lace dress from SheIn, which absolutely stole the night. It make me feel sexy with its bright red color but elegant and sophisticated with the drop shoulders and over the knee length. And my statement clutch is actually made with rolls of sushi! It is from this incredible Kent Stetson and you can shop it here.
Hope you enjoy my pictures!
