Thursday marked my first attendance at the Evolving Influence Conference put on by the incredible organization, Independent Fashion Bloggers. Jennine, founder of IFB and blogger behind The Coveted, has cultivated such an amazing force in the fashion blogging industry and it was so wonderful to meet so many familiar people in person finally and listen to valuable information surrounding what we all love to do: blog. While I already practice many of the recommendations made, it was still so empowering to see what fashion blogging means to brands and most importantly, to ourselves and one another.

Love your recap and photos! The Proenza Schouler boys are too cute.
I was there too and had such an amazing time! I think my favorite panel was the Rise of the Professional Blogger – so many great tips, and who knew that some high profile bloggers had agents? (I certainly didn’t!)
Taylor and Kristina were super sweet in person. Glad you enjoyed yourself!!
