We kicked off Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week early in the company of the crème de la crème of our most fashionable peers, at the 2013 Independent Fashion Bloggers Conference. The panel discussions and keynote speeches were relevant and thought-provoking. We are so grateful for the IFB and the fantastic job it does of bringing fashion bloggers together to network and learn from one another. We were happy hear some old friends speak at the conference, like the young genius Matt Edelman of Glossi, and the brilliant Katia Ververis, founder of Birchbox.
For what to wear when surrounded by fellow fashionistas, NET-A-PORTER is our first stop. Leather pants – a huge trend right now, always look so cool and chic, and can go from morning panels to trendy after-parties with nary a wrinkle. A blousy printed silk top is the perfect compliment to the sleek and structured look of the pants, and top it all off with a Burberry Trench for classic, sophisticated style. A great printed scarf like this one by McQ Alexander McQueen is a must for its bold statement and extra warmth. And don’t forget a See by Chloe Python Printed Nylon Tote for all of your sponsor goodies from Fekkai, MailChimp, Bare Escentuals and Birchbox. Thanks to IFB and all of the sponsors for a great two days of information, imagination and innovation.
