Fashion Bloggers & Valentino on September 7
I bought my early bird ticket for the Independent Fashion Bloggers Conference, being held September 7, 2011, in New York City. I'm so excited! I hope to meet a few of my favorite bloggers like Vahni of Grit & Glamour, Bella of The Citizen Rosebud, and Elissa of Dress With Courage. I also hope to learn anything I can about technology as it pertains to blogging, since I feel I am always playing catch up on that subject.
The same day as the IFB Conference, one of my favorite designers, Valentino Garavani, will be honored with the 2011 Couture Council Artistry of Fashion Award, given by The Couture Council of The Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology. If I had $1,000 to spare (the price of a "Fashionista Ticket," which includes seating and listing in the invitation), I would have to skip a couple of hours of the IFB Conference (sorry!) to attend this luncheon honoring Mr. Valentino, whose work I have long admired. Since that's not happening, I will console myself with having gotten the IFB Conference ticket at the nice price and having a look through Valentino: Themes and Variations, by Pamela Golbin.

Now to the question that strikes fear in my heart: what do you wear to a fashion blogger conference (or to meet Valentino)?
