On Thursday and Friday, I attended LuckyFABB NYC for the first time ever, and boy was it an experience! Day 1 kicked off with the adorable, sweet, and brilliant EIC of Lucky Magazine – Eva Chen! It was a pleasure hearing her speak.
The first panel consisted of Erica Domesek of PS I Made This, Gabi Gregg of GabiFresh, and Alisa of Pose. They had some great advice on engaging readers, and converting them to advocates. You probably can’t tell from this picture, but Erica was wearing the most fabulous, blinged out cat ears!
And the highlight of the whole conference for me – personally meeting Eva Chen! You guys, she is every bit as sweet as we all imagine she is! Actually, she’s sweeter. And cute. It was really refreshing to see a fashion girl, as influential as her, actually be genuinely nice. You guys know that’s a VERY rare occurrence!
And then there was Eva Mendes! She was so beautiful, candid, and down-to-earth! During her chat with Eva Chen, she was talking about how she loves using scarves on her head, and then proceeded to demonstrate how she does so! How fun!
On Day 2 of LuckyFABB NYC, there were smaller breakout sessions. The first session I attended was Founder’s Series with Jess Lee of Polyvore, and Tamara Mellon, the co-founder of Jimmy Choo. Both Jess and Tamara were incredibly encouraging and uplifting! My second session was an SEO checklist session with Raman Kia of Conde Nast. My third session was a chat with Leandra Medine of Man Repeller, and my last session was Street Style Photography, with Adam Katz Sinding. I didn’t take as many pictures on day two, coz I was busy taking notes.
Sam of La Petite Pear and me! We’ve tweeted so many times and it was so great to finally meet her! She’s such a doll!
I had a great time at LuckyFABB NYC, and met some really lovely people, and learnt a lot! I’m definitely planning to attend LuckyFABB next year!
Hope you all had a good weekend!
