Who is your favorite fashion blogger?! Recently, Joonbug attended the popular fashion & beauty conference Simply Stylist in New York City at The Park Central Hotel.To kick off the day, HauteLook hosted a networking brunch where guests listened to Public Relations maven, and founder of The Farley Project, Elissa Kravetz, speak about “Finding your Passion”. Following the brunch, ladies took their seats for the panels. We also had the opportunity to chat with many of our favorite bloggers and fashion icons, such as Jay Manuel.
Hosted by E!’s Catt Sadler, this year’s panel was packed with experts from all angles of the industry. Panelists, including Lo Bosworth and Jay Manuel, discussed an array of topics, such as their road to success, the importance of networking, the power of social media, as well as fashion & beauty tips. Other panelists included Danielle Bernstein (We Wore What), Alba Garcia(Vlogger), Sarah Boyd (Simply Stylist), Sasha Charnin Morrison (Fashion Director at Us Weekly), Jordan Reid (Ramshackle Glam), Allison Beal (StyleSaint), Laurel Pinson (Editor-in-chief of StyleCaster), Polly Blitzer (Beauty Blitz) and Annie Ladino (Shop It To Me).
Following the panels, everyone enjoyed shopping, pampering and fun breakout sessions, with a cocktail hour by EXPRESS. During the shopping event, celebrity stylist, Jacqueline Rezak, gave personal style consultations to attendees. Some of our fashion favorites that participated in the event included Henry & Belle, Dittos, That Madonna Girl, and Bradelis. Breakout Session speakers included: Revolve Clothing’s Social Media Director, Ashley Torres; eDrop-Off’s founder, Corri McFadden, Executive VP of Sales at Priv, Courtney Jerden, COO of DNA Events, April Luca, Style and Fit Expert, Jenny Altman; Jacey Duprie from Damsel in Dior, founder of That Madonna Girl, Michelle Madonna, Hilary Peterson from Lyst, Celebrity Stylist, Rachel Wirkus and founder of Fohr Card, James Nord.
