@ the Luichiny Shoe Party @ Magic Tradeshow (Feb 15, 2012). Vintage dress w/ headband by Heather Petrey.
@ Magic + TeenVogue Blogger Lounge
Despite the fact that I got a speeding ticket on my way to Vegas to attend Magic Fashion Tradeshow…I got a picture with Betsey Johnson. That already is epic enough. I’m not trying to boast, but one day, people will also line up for 2 hours to take a picture with me.
Some highlights from the show-
+ Desigual- live painting on free t-shirts (hot spanish guys painting your shirt while you’re wearing it)
+ Luichiny- shoe party
+ Teenvogue – blogger lounge, now bloggers are the new press (probably they’re better marketers than pros)
+Brazil Lounge @ Project- I love the Brazil lounge at Project. They highlighted local Brazilian fashion brands and gave information about going to Brazil on a press/buyer tour.
+ VIP lounge- spent 2 hours eating and drinking mochas/cappuccinos there- just because I love to eat good food.
Quote from a friend of a friend- “Wow, she’s a struggling entrepreneur? She looks really glamorous for being a struggling artist”. My reply “entrepreneurs know where to get their resources for free, borrowing clothes from friends, thrift shopping, and reusing/recycling”. Any struggling entrepreneur tips- feel free to comment!
