Day 5 of the 28-day challenge I wore a brown jacket with faux fur around the hood and a leopard scarf. I paired these items with black pleather pants and wedge sneakers. This was the perfect outfit for this super cold weather out here in NYC! Last night I studied the map of where I needed to walk to catch the subway and after much confusion and frustration I finally got a sense of where I was in relation to the buildings and streets. Despite all of the studying I had done, I still ended up getting lost, but much to my surprise the people here are very helpful and quite approachable. I finally made it to the subway and when I got off at my stop I managed to get lost again! I literally walked back to my starting point, and went every single direction until I finally was going the correct way. Of course I didn’t ask for directions, that was the pride in me.
Anyway, I finally ended up at the Independent Fashion Blogger’s Conference and I had an amazing, information filled, and fun-filled day! I met super model Tyson Beckford and he was super nice and his abs were super hard, just like I had imagined they would be. I got my makeup done by BareMinerals Cosmetics and they also gave me some free swag as well! I also met Lisa Salzer CEO and Founder of LuLu Frost jewelry line. Her story was very inspiring and touching of how she fought for what she wanted and how she got there. I had an opportunity to speak with her after the seminar and she was so nice and inviting. I let her know how her story resonated with me and she encouraged me to keep going for what I love. I am so glad I met her!
I can’t wait for what tomorrow will bring!
