Even more exciting than the donut wall was the woman of the hour: Tyra Banks, who was promoting her new beauty line Tyra Beauty. Her live interview with the event's host Catt Sadler was extremely inspiring. Our favorite quote: “Don't be scared to do things that you never have.”
Also exciting: IFB hosted a chat with veteran (but incredibly youthful) fashion and lifestyle blogger Erin Hagstrom of Calivintage along with yours truly. We had a great conversation about the history of fashion blogging, best practices for making money and forging productive partnerships, the importance of developing a consistent style your readers can identify with, among other things.
We were grateful for the amazing turnout we had for our session, considering it was late in the afternoon and getting toasty after lots of food, drink, learning and networking. Our attentive audience had so many smart questions for us—not to mention amazing style! Check out all the photos below, and see you next time in Chicago!
