Target top, jeans, boots and bag (time to shop somewhere else, huh?); Nordstrom jacket (similar), Asos hat; Rayban sunnies.
P.S. I wore this outfit on the day I found a Tupperware container of 4 day old fruit in my daughter’s locker at school. Ewwwwwww.
So I was invited to attend the Lucky FABB Conference in NYC this October. To say I am thrilled is an understatement. Beside’s fashion week, this is sort of the Oscar’s of the blogging world and so many women that I admire and look up to will be there. I’ve poured over posts and examined outfits and styles of those that have attended and keep coming back to the thought, “am I “fashion-y” enough to attend?” To make a statement without $800 Rockstud heels and Celine bags and such? I shop at Target and Marshall’s and have an occasional Nordstrom’s splurge and I’d like to think I dress for real life in the real world. I don’t wear heels to the playground or attend glitzy fashion events (not that I wouldn’t, but you know), and live in mainstream America where some part of my closet may come from Walmart.
Can I stand out by being just me, a mom from Michigan who drives her kids to school and cleans toilets and eats dinner by 5pm every night? Can I? I’ve been making lists and trying to come up with outfits that make me feel like me, but the fancier version of me. Meagan 2.0 if you will. I want to be realistic about where I shop and what I would wear on a day out at a “work” function, if you will. I want to be the me that deep inside loves fashion, loves dressing up and loves being able to get away and learn more about what I adore. I can’t afford the high fashion looks that may be at this event, but I have perfectly good choices to pick from that make me feel good about myself.
I can’t wait to meet new friends and network and live a part of the dream that I thought wasn’t possible as a military wife who stays at home with her kids. I’m looking forward to sharing this whole event with YOU and including you in on the fun. I’m hoping to do a behind the scenes type coverage and share the details that might not be shown in the glitzier version of events. Care to join me?
Tell me, what would you wear to a Fashion and Beauty conference? Am I crazy for being so nervous and feeling like a 12 year old on the sidelines at a school dance?
