On Thursday, February 10, and Friday, February 11, 2011 The ever-so-fabulous Jenine, founder of The Coveted and The Independent Fashion Bloggers hosted a delightful conference for and by the fashion blogger. I was sooo sad I missed it (due to shoot days)- HOWEVER… I had to share with you the on goings of this fabulous event.

In a fabulous partnership with MAC & Milk Studios, Gucci, Shopbop.com, Aldo, Juicy Couture, ICED Media, Microsoft, Levi’s Shape What’s to Come and Lookbooks.com, IFB hosted an official two-day event: Evolving Influence Fashion Bloggers Conference.
