Last weekend, I had sooo much fun attending the Blogging While Brown Conference in Los Angeles. While there, I ran into soo many of my Tweeps and it was refreshing to be able to connect with them in real life and for them to be just as cool in person- if not more!
I am not going to lie, I was nervous. Nervous about meeting new people, new scene, and newer crowd. This was my first conference that was not focused around fashion and I did not have someone who I rolled with- everything was new!
However, this was quickly eradicated, as I got to meet the uber talented Scott Hanselman and sooo many others!
Being as I was the local, I drove and happily offered my car to take us to the cocktail party hosted by @theduodishes! @brothatech @artdeal @shanselman and one other hopped in and we made our way out to dinner and this is what I wore:
- Simply Be Top
- Forever 21 Bodycon mini skirt
- Jessica Simpson Red Pumps
First official day of the conference, which really did not kick off until later in the evening, I relaxed the day away with Scott and Art at the hotel lounge and bar! Once festivities kicked off, we headed over to the Marriot ( I stayed at the Sheraton), for welcome and game night!
I met the hilarious @Luvvie and I finally got to meet @AngelonFire from Concrete Loop and the author of Angel’s 10 Laws of Blogging! I also met @billionheir (Taj- Angel’s Photographer) and Christine @eboseta amongst sooo many others like @BritniDWrites from Clutch Magazine!
I rocked this number:
- Forever 21 Top
- Norma Kamali Mini Skirt
- Flats scored from Ideeli
Running late for the keynote given by @Shanselman and @adriarichards, I finally arrived to an amazing presentation on working effectively and efficiently as a blogger. Learning how to word smarter- not harder is definitely a lesson that I will take with me!
This day. I did not get to take a picture of my outfit- in my PINK PANTS! L
However, at night, I did.
For the Black Weblog Awards (in which I was nominated for Best plus Size Blog!) I went a little more classic chic, as I had NOO idea how everyone was going to be dressed, so I played it safe!
Here is my outfit:
- Dress by Forever 21
- Cozy from DKNYC
- Heel scored from Ideeli
- Ring from Ashley Stewart
The last day, I already featured in my review of the PZI jeans with my Dorothy Perkins top! Laid back for a goodbye brunch!
