I've been dying to share these photos since they were snapped! Above is a recap of Tuesday night, Wednesday at IFB Conference, and Wednesday night at the IFB after party at W Hotel's Lilium Lounge. Michelle and I attended day one of the conference and took away some incredibly valuable insight (which I'll be sharing in a separate post). We were pounding the pavement from sun up to sun down on Wednesday, but it was so worth it. I had a few star struck moments (Tyson Beckford & Leandra Medine), a few "this isn't real life" moments (blogger photo ops and swag bags), and a few "oh my gosh, this is real life!" moments. If you've ever wondered if bloggers really are as amazing in person as they seem online, I'm here to tell you - yes, yes they are.

Enjoy the photos and check back in tomorrow for my second recap post - aka shopping day!

Oh wow, it looks like you had a blast at Fashion Week! A few years ago when I went, I spotted Lindsay Lohan at a Charlotte Ronson show (back in the days when she was dated Samantha). The paparazzi went wild!
