IFB Dress Up Soiree!

I'm taking a little break before posting the finale of my Eurotrip. After all, it's New York Fashion Week right now and it's impossible not to talk about the shows and some of the fun events that I get to go to. Last night I attended the Dress Up Soiree, a party along with a panel discussion organized by IFB (Independent Fashion Bloggers). Broadway East was packed with stylish bloggers and inimitable fashionistas - it was quite a scene. Well-recognized bloggers were spotted, but the night was mostly about meeting new, fabulous people and learning about their blogs. Special shout out to Jennine from The Coveted for organizing this wonderful event! Already looking forward to the next Dress Up Soiree!

My mini boater hat got a lot of attention last night! It was a recent purchase in London , handmade by milliner Kristie-Anne Spensley, whom I met at the Backyard Market around Bricklane, and her personality is equally lovely as her designs. Her brand is called White Rabbit, and apparently she's spending the next month or two in the U.S. to do shows and touring, so keep an eye out for her!
