LUCKY FABB Experience: September 7th, 2011

As someone who has been a loyal subscriber to Lucky mag from the moment it debuted it was a great experience to see some of the people that make the magazine what it is in person. My experience at the conference was what I expected x10. Of course there was the initial anxiety of finding something to wear and making sure I packed a complete "just in case kit". Even though I managed to  pack everything I needed there was one thing that I could not prevent; the rain and the wind blew into town with a vengeance. My hair was no match for it, but I still managed to get a few glam photos in in spite of my hair debacle. While every panel was a great one, I have to admit that I was most excited to see Diane Von Fursteberg and Rachel Roy,  as they are both two women whose clothing I wear and business standards I admire. Ask anyone who knows me and they will tell you the love I  have for the DVF brand. Whenever someone asks for outfit recommendations or dress options DVF is one of the first designers I recommend. Rachel Roy has become one of my favorite designers over the past 4 years because she truly knows how to dress women at every price point. There are pieces in her Rachel Roy New York collection that can be combined with the Rachel Rachel Roy line. Each woman shared their keys to owning a business while balancing a complete life. I also really enjoyed speaker Scott Galloway, NYU Professor of Marketing, Founder of  L2. I almost wanted to ask him when his next course would be taught. Galloway had lots of great tips to offer and ways to network and build relationships.
- Know the kind of woman you want to be - "I knew the kind of woman I wanted to be....a woman who has her own..her own company..and can pay her own bills...."
-"Establish a dialogue with your consumers", she uses her collections to "Speak through fashion".
- "Every woman should have children".

Rachel Roy
-"Pick a passion and stick to it".
-"Pursue a great quality of life" not money and things.
-Always surround yourself with kind people, especially those you have to work with.

What I wore: Antik Batik Zanon Cardigan $520.00, Jcrew No.2 pencil skirt in double serge wool $120.00, Topshop gold belt $80.00,  Pedro Garcia Snakeskin Pumps
