Lucky Fabb: Blogger Conference Preview & How-To

Hello all you beautiful Muses! This time next week I'll be in New York City with hundreds of other bloggers attending the Lucky Fabb fashion and beauty blogger conference. I'm so excited to be doing this, as last year I went to my first IFB_Con and that was pretty great.My hope is that this year won't be as crazy hectic as last year. I had over-planned (and under-planned at the same time); it rained...it just wasn't cute. But this year will be fabulous. That is my mantra and I'll be repeating it and willing it into reality. And how can it not be fabulous with a lineup like this?
Rachel Zoe...Lauren Conrad...Simon Doonan...Anna Sui...I have no words.

Also, I feel like I know more bloggers who are going this year (Ria, Tanvi, Jyoti, Jasmine...to name a few) so I'm bound to have an amazing time with these ladies by my side!I've been thinking about dresses and bags and heels and hair ever since I purchased the tickets a few weeks ago. So I thought I'd create a little set highlighting some items that I'm thinking about wearing (or something similar) to Lucky Fabb in September! And I say all this without having packed a damn thing!SwayChic necklace ~ Shoedazzle and Free People heels ~ Oh So Fab jeans ~ South Moon Under bag ~ ShopAkira dress ~

*Some advice for attending these blogger events*
♥ Be sure to bring your smart phone for hours of tweeting, blogging and instagram-ing
♥ Get all your social media in one place with TweetDeck or HootSuite
♥ Don't forget the charger for your phone and an iPad or other tablet as a backup
♥ Have your DSLR or handheld camera ready for snapping memories
♥ Pack flats so you can give your feet a rest from those fab heels
♥ Always bring an ample amount of blog cards to exchange with new bloggers
♥ Look gorgeous and carry a big bag. You'll need a place to store the freebies!

Will you be at Lucky Fabb this year?
Have you attended any blogger conferences yet?

I WISH I could attend Lucky FABB. Priorities took over, and I have to save for my wedding instead. Hopefully next year!

Marissa said...

I'm rethinking what I said about NYFW this year, but the shows I got invited to are the following week, so I don't see how I can make it to the Lucky conference. :( Will you be around, though, the 8th through 10th? Would love to get together!

Dale JaneƩ said...

OMG Cheryl, I'm so excited you're going! I just found out yesterday that my sister and I are going to be able to make it and we just got our plane tix. It will be so fun to see you there and these tips are so helpful because I've never been to a blogger conference before. See ya next week :)

Sounds great, so excited for you! I won´t be able to New York until I get my german citizenship approved. so until then. :)

Sharon said...

Sounds like a great event, hav a wonderful time and loads of pics please hehe&

Oh btw honey in response to ur question my firm favourites or should I say HG foundies are Nars Sheer Glow which gives a glowy radiant look and Lancome Teint idole ultra 24hr which gives a flawless matte look. I have normal/combo skin w oily tzone and both these foundations look natural lightweight and don't clog pores.

Fashion Tales said...

Seems there are loads of fun things happening between IFBCon, and LuckyFabb that I've been hearing. it would be great to attend Lucky Fabb one day. Have a great time!

Couture Carrie said...

Huh Rachel Zoe. I die. Hope you have a great time with the bloggers, I'm so jealous! Great board for inspiration/packing and great tips. Definitely a charger and camera and large gorgeous bag. Personally, I'd find a fashion blogger conference intimidating to attend b/c I'm not well dressed enough ;). I'm sure you'll rock some awesomeness and receive some awesome compliments!

Ria said...

I'm so pumped for fabb. How hilarious those are my feet in that luckyfabb shot. I'm famoussss :P

Jamillah said...

Oh you'll be in NY!!! I'm not going to any of the conferences this year, but would love to meet up. I saw you for only a hot short second at ifb, which was not the best place to meet, so would love to sit down and chat.
