LuckyFABB 2013

we were so trilled (jumping up&down in the stock room...dont judge) to be invited to attend lucky magazine's fashion and beauty blogger conference last week. we traveled up to the big apple for a fast, very fun and informative 48 hours! while i was in nyc, my best friend brandon was invited to attend The Whitney Museum of American Art 2013 Gala and Studio Party hosted by Louis Vuitton at Skylight at Moynihan Station and i got to be his plus one.  i mean, lets chat about being fancy. i'll fill you in on those deets later this week.

on the first day, we heard from a series of amazing speakers including, eva chen (editor in chief of lucky mag) eva mendes, brian boy & kate bosworth. they all had great things to say about working in the industry, but the biggest takeaway from the whole day was simple; be nice, be you.

the adorable eva chen.

eva & eva. georgous, as always. mendes was sporting her new new york & co designs. i loved the top! 

brian boy! he was just pure fun. 

the ever beautiful and newly married, kate bosworth --  i think she made everyone fall in love with love. she was just the sweetest talking about her new hubs and how he was the catalyst for her collaboration with Top Shop. 

fangirl moment with eva chen!! eeek!! 

enjoying some cocktails after a long, but amazing, first day!

the second day of lucky fabb was filled with breakout sessions that gave us a more detailed look at different aspects of the blogging industry. we got to hear from some new faces, and some familiar ones as well. it was held in the conde naste building, where all the major fashion magazines have their offices. dreamworld.

a chat with our new bestie who we met in dc a few weeks ago, leandra medine from the man repeller.

another great talk by emily weiss, founder of into the gloss. insider note: emily&leandra are neighbors&besties.

#fallinginlove Extras: Kate & Henry

we are glad that so many of you have fallen in love with our newest lookbook, and we wanted to share some more of the beautiful photos that susannah from alumbra photography took of our amazing models and give you a breakdown on each look.

Katelyn is wearing these gorgeous Studio Pollini two-tone rider boots, the Loeffler Randall rider bag and our favorite Loren Hope necklace from fall, the Perla.

Henry, Kelly's sweet little baybay boy, has known his auntie Katelyn since he was a mere two days old. It was love at first sight, and they have been inseparable ever since. Henry is going to be baptized next weekend and Katelyn is the lucky godmother. These two are definitely besties for life.

bb Meets the Man Repeller

we are (not so) secretly obsessed with Leandra Medine, or as most people in the blogger world know her, The Man Repeller. a man repeller is someone who "outfit[s] oneself in a sartorially offensive mode that may result in repelling members of the oposite sex." so basically, boys (sorry gents, this is a generalization) don't appreciate or understand a lot of what we consider to be fashionable, and that's ok. we should rock it anyways. holla.

Leandra's book just came out, and she had a book signing event in the district last night. we obviously had to be there & get our copy of "Man Repeller: Seeking Love. Finding Overalls" signed! 

we also ran into some of our blogger besties and had a blast catching up with them. it was a great night! who doesn't love a wine wednesday??

cutie leandra signing our book!

**fangirl moment**

"to bishop boutique--I've never dedicated a book to a store!!! thanx"
