Teen Vogue Fashion U



Anna Wintour gave the opening remarks!!! 

The Teen Vogue Editors! They were so precious!
I am in love with Eva Chen's (3rd from the left) shoes!

Hanneli, Sea of Shoes, Atlantis Home, The Streetpeeper
It was so exciting to hear from the superstars of our blogging world.


Jenna Lyons did a presentation on "Steering the J.Crew Brand"
She was so down-to-earth and embodies everything J. Crew! She talked about everything from dream collaborations with Louboutin to J. Crew going international (FINALLY!)
Zac Posen! He is so charismatic and very honest about the business!
Vera Wang! She was absolutely adorable and so real - I loved hearing her speak. 


Jeanine and I had such an amazing weekend at Teen Vogue Fashion U. The weekend was hosted by Teen Vogue at the gorgeous Hudson Theatre (1st picture) and across the street at the Condé Nast building. All the editors, bloggers, models, designers and speakers were friendly, approachable, and most importantly very real and honest about the business! One of my favorite moments of the weekend was when Jeanine and I followed Amy Astley and her editing team to the Condé Nast building! Standing in the elevator and seeing the names of Condé Nast's influential publications illuminate as we passed their floors was so surreal. Another highlight was the opening remarks given by Anna Wintour. Anna gave us a preview of some images from the upcoming issues of Vogue! Her hair is actually that perfect in real life. It was an unforgettable weekend. I'm still shocked at how close we were to fashion's elite.

I have so much more to share from this amazing weekend! Stay tuned!

  5. After a long search into this world I never believe for a second that fashion is shallow. It's pure business and Anna Wintour is all game. She's so devoted to driving the world of fashion and people in it. Very thankful to her for being so inspirational.
