i’ve got SO much to share with you from luckyfabb that i’ve decided to break it up into three parts! for any of you that have thought about attending a blogging conference, i HIGHLY recommend it (this was my first time at luckyfabb but i did go to blogher last year). i originally was just going to go for the conference and then decided last minute to go the day before to attend the pre-conference activities. i am so glad i did. sunday morning we kicked it off with a brunch at the viceroy. here are a few pics from the day:

i live in san diego so i drove to santa monica and arrived at the viceroy early. i snapped this pic before the room was FULL of stylish bloggers. the viceroy is gorgeous…you should totally check it out if you are ever in town!

you guys have no idea how stressed i was trying to figure out what in the heck i was going to wear to this event. i went out and bought two new dresses and then at the last minute remembered i had this dress (last seen here) buried in my closet and decided to wear it instead!

i was so excited to meet julia of gal meets glam…she is one of my daily reads. and omg…kiley from a sequin dress at breakfast is THE sweetest. love her. this photo is courtesy of talking with tami…who is another complete sweetheart.

it was so fabulous to be able to mix & mingle with so many amazing bloggers in such a fun relaxed setting.

and my luckyfabb besties…..tiffany of beijos tiffany and kimberly from penny pincher fashion. seriously…love these girls. kimberly and i started blogging just a couple of months apart and immediately became online bff’s. this was our first time meeting in real life and i instantly felt like i had known her forever. i know this must seem so weird to my non-blogging friends but as tiffany put it…attending these conferences makes you (as a fashion blogger) feel normal. we all know how much work it takes to keep up a blog. the time spent planning posts, taking photos, editing and throw in all of the social networking on top of it. some of these women have full time jobs, some of us are moms who struggle with balancing family & blogging and for some…blogging is their full time job.Β  i have to say a HUGE thank you to lucky magazine for putting together such an amazing conference. i am so honored that i was invited to attend. i was truly inspired.
