VIDEO: New York Fashion Week & IFBcon Recap

Hey guys!  It's somewhat late, but I am sipping a cup of coffee and wanted to share with you the details of my recent trip to New York for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.  There's something about New York that is so captivating and the city is one place that I rarely have the desire to leave.  Although I couldn't wait to get back to my little man.  Enjoy the video and let me know if you attended any of the similar events as well ;)

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week NYC Recap

Happy Monday everyone!  After my trip to New York for fashion week, I am completely exhausted but it was well worth it.  For today's blog post I just want to share some of the highlights from my experience from various events, shows, and meetups.  The Timo Weiland menswear show was filled with intricate textures, layers, and bold accents.  Although I don't write about mens clothing often, I was impressed with this line for the particular season.  BCBG was one of my favorite shows, as the extensive patterns and pairings were gorgeous.  I'm really loving the use of black and white leathers with prominent patterns for this season. 

Here is a video clip from the BCBG runway show as well!  http://vine.co/v/bnjJVerrQJI?fb_action_ids=795597740708&fb_action_types=vine-app%3Apost&fb_source=aggregation&fb_aggregation_id=288381481237582

Independent Fashion Bloggers Conference Recap (with Tyson Beckford) #IFBcon

Hey honeys, I'm back in sunny Miami Beach now!  My recent trip to New York City for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week NY ended up stretching a little further than planned, as there was a major blizzard (most of you probably already know) that cancelled my outgoing flight.  I had an amazing time in the city that never sleeps (and it truly doesn't - or maybe that was just me).  It seems like every time I go to New York, I find something new or another reason why I love that city so much.  From the runway shows at Lincoln Center, to fashion events throughout the city, lunches in Times Square, shopping on Fifth Ave, meeting new people and old friends, business and pleasure, it was so much fun.

One of the first things I did in NYC was attend the first day of the Independent Fashion Bloggers conference, which is something I recommend all serious fashion bloggers attend every year.  It's not only a great networking opportunity, but I had the chance to learn from other blogger experiences as well.  Benefit Cosmetics, MailChimp, and Fekkai Salon and Hair Products had some fabulous booths on-site, as well as Monster Headphones.  I had the pleasure of being selected to do a quick photo collaboration with the suave supermodel Tyson Beckford and another blogger, rocking the Monster headphones in their booth.

Check out the goodies and photo diary of IFBcon below!  For those who attended, it was great meeting you and can't wait for next year.
