… the fact that I’ll be in Vegas in less than a month for WWDMagic!

I’m over the moon-estatic to be heading to WWDMagic as one of 30 bloggers and fashion writers selected to cover the show as part of Teen Vogue‘s first-ever Blogger Concourse Lounge.  We’ll be running around the show floor reporting on the latest trends, filming real-time video segments, conducting buyer chats and partaking in fun style-offs.

Featured sponsoring brands in the concourse lounge are Free People, Levi’s, Jessica Simpson and French Connection.

Make sure to follow WWDMagic’s Tumblr and my Tumblr as content will be aggregated from the show. Oh, and if you see the girl in the gold glitter JC Litas, that’s me… and make sure to say Hi!

    I’m loving everything in your list except the festive boots. All are very fashionable in my opinion specially the green leather jacket.

    Ok, first off – I’m loving so many of the same things – especially the orange lipstick (which I totally don’t have the balls to pull off) and that great ear wrap thing (which I had no idea I loved until this very moment). Also, congrats on the amazing opportunity to go to WWDMagic. I can’t wait to keep up with your coverage of the show!

    great inspiration post! also loving anything in orange right now, and I have been dreaming of being able to pull of the orange lip! I have yet to find the perfect lip shade for that! ( I am very picky w/ lipsticks) ALSO loving your gold Litas! and they will be perfect for VEGAS! nothing screams vegas more that a 5inch platform boot covered in gold glitter ;)

    CONGRATS! that is such an amazing opportunity and you ( as well as Mel) both deserve it!
    hope to see ya soon! if I dont see you before your trip to vegas I wish you the best of luck, and an amazing trip!!

    Honey ,this style is amazing.
    I love it too,but to be ernest,it’s difficul to find in the usual shops,such wonderful peaces. I think some must to have the nerve to make some of them by their own (Shirt,hat(
    Wish you the Best and stay stylish and unic :)
