IFB Dress Up Party!

Tuesday, September 15, 2009

A friend of mine said that they need to change the name to New York Fashion Bloggers' Week, because we've been spotting so many famous ones covering the shows this season. And tonight, I met many of my favorites at the panel and Dress Up soiree for Independent Fashion Bloggers.

Just a quick note to say that I had a wonderful time, despite the chaos of the long line outside the door. I'll return to posting a few more photos from my NYFW Diaries soon, but I just wanted to post these because it was nice to take a break and share some drinks with some lovely ladies...

What I wore: blue sequin top from Falls, sheer trousers from CRHEE and Nicholas Kirkwood shoes!

The line outside the door: insane!

With Alix from alixrose!

With Corrie from Lady Lunacy, who is helping me out with gorgeous photographs for Dossier Journal.

Jennine of The Coveted had a few words with the group before Jordana of Clutch 22 moderated a panel of a few bloggers, including Susie Bubble, Because I'm Addicted and WendyB.

Catching up with Trish and Mo of Smashing Darling!


With Jennine of The Coveted and Erin and Lani from Sugar Rock Catwalk!

With Gilda of Queen Gilda and new friend (friend: I am bad with names- help me out!)

Nubia from Nubia's Nonsense!

Nubia and Iyam from Style and Beyond!

Hanh from Life in Travel, Thumbelina Fashionista and Lynn from All Things NYC! Love it!!


With Nini from Nini Style and Hanh!


WendyB from Wendy Brandes Jewelry and Kathy from Fasshonaburu


The obligatory shoe shot! From bottom left - clockwise: Hanh, Nini, Thumbelina, Iyam and me!

With Jordana of Clutch 22- who just moved to New York! How exciting!

All in all, a wonderful evening. Thanks for a great evening, Jennine, Jordana and IFB! Now... back to the Fashion Week grind!

WendyB wore the leopard dress! AHHH!

You guys all look gorgeous. It's always fun to see bloggers meet if for nothing else but scale purposes. =D

Love your shoes, D!!

Eden said...

btw you girls look divine! i'm pretty sure it was well worth it... totally to drool for experience!


Swell Vintage - Frankie said...

Style & Beyond said...



Miss Yaya said...

do you know where miss clutch22's dress is from? i'm loving it!

I was a bit disappointed with the event because I forgot my id at home and was turned away because of it. The e-mail didn't say to bring id or that it was a bar. I might be splitting hairs but I'm a bit grouchy!

la petite fashionista said...

love this post! seeing all the fashion bloggers come together would be like seeing a bunch of celebrities! so glad to see us so well represented at NYFW!

dot said...

D! What a great post. That does it: next year I'm coming to NY for fashion week, then back to London (this will be my first one, and part of me is like, do I really want to do this?)
The funny thing is I feel I know so many of the girls in this post: Nini, Lynn, Thumbie.. actually it's worth the ticket to JFK, just to finally know what Thumbie looks like! (or did she have like a kerchief in front of her face the whole time?)

Actually, I recognised her shoes!

You all look fabulous. I wish I was there, but feel I was in spirit. It's so weird to write this from London where it is absolutely POURING.

And I suddenly remembered: I don't think I properly thanked you for my award, and can't remember if I passed it on. So I will do so right now!

Sorry I'm writing so much rubbish on everyone's blogs. I'm just feeling homesick for my old hometown, I guess, and wishing I'd met you all before we moved here!

Crystal said...

Hi! I (new friend in pic 8 aka: Crystal from First Time Failures) am so glad I got the chance to meet you! It really was an amazing night and everyone should go if given the chance. Love all the pictures

Grace Like Kelly said...

So many talented people all together, how amazing!!!! So jealous!

Taylor Sterling said...

I would have loved to go and meet all the lovely ladies (you esp). it looks so fun and you look amazing!

The Anthology said...

Oy. My. Word. That looks like so much fun!

So interesting to see all of you guys (with all your unique styles). Now, more than ever, I wish I was in NYC.
