Independent Fashion Bloggers (IFB)

Packing for IFB Con!

OK, so I’m not really packing. Yet. It’s coming, but at this very second, I’m sipping wine and relaxing before all the craziness starts!

This video is a few days old, but tomorrow, these are indeed a few of the goodies going into my luggage…

PS: This video was shot the same day—and in the same outfit—from WVW: Setting Summer Sun.

    Oh, so wish I were coming! Love the tassel idea with the yellow clutch. Genius. You’ll love using your keyboard with your iPad. I did this at the last blogging conference I went to and it made it so, so much easier. I’ve got an iMac so just took the wireless keyboard from that and my iPad has its own cover/stand.

    … and yes, my husband hates my iPhone 😉

    Okay… I have lots of favorite parts to this.

    1) Your jangly bangles.
    2) The fact that you look like a hippie in this outfit (but a very chic one… not a dirty one or anything).
    3) The ‘laaa’ sound you make at 0:59 after putting on the rings.
    4) ‘Yay for bloggers!’ Yes… yay for us :)

    Love your Vlogs!!!! Leather leggins are perfect for the trip and love what you did with the clutch so creative! I love little inventions like that. Loving the wireless keyboard! Yay so excited for you! I think in my email I got the dates confused and asked you if you were going straight to Tampa from NY, obvi disregard that question.

    Adding that tassel to your AA clutch is work of genius. Really excited to see you in your leather leggings!

    I can’t wait to read your review of the ipad keyboard, it would be such a great addition to on-the-go-blogging if it works. I loved that bright clutch & your idea of adding the tassel.

    Eeeee! I’m so excited/nervous/everything — can’t wait! I love this glimpse at everything you’re bringing and especially what you did with your AA clutch! I so want to bring mine, but is it crazy that I’m all paranoid thinking it will be too easy for someone to snatch it? I’ve probably been to Manhattan only a handful of times so I’m still a ninny about things like that. But anyway, it’s pretty much my goal to be as fabulous as you someday. x

    There are so many awesome things that you are taking with you to IFB Con, but I love 1. The fact that you added the tassle to the American Apparel clutch and 2. the wireless keyboard to accompany your iPad. I hope you have fun at IFB Con and in NY!
