NYFW - Featured

Oh New York, New York. Every time I come to this city, I’m blown away by how different each experience is and how I’m still able to find different things fall in love with it all over again.


This time, it’s all about exploring my inner fashionista and finding out what New York Fashion Week has to offer! If today was any indication of what this week will bring, I don’t know how I’m going to be able to handle all the excitement!


Yesterday was a lot of firsts for me. Keep on reading to find out the highlights of my day!


Attending the Independent Fashion Blogger’s Conference. Our first day was jam packed with useful panel discussions featuring notable bloggers like Tina Craig (BagSnob), Aimee Song (SongofStyle) and Susanna Lau from (StyleBubble). The event was also packed with fabulous sponsors including Mailchimp offering a DIY station bedazzling monkey t-shirts, Bare Minerals providing complimentary make up touch ups, Fekkai spoiling us with hair touch-me-ups and many more!


If there’s anything I took away from the conference, it’s that we need to all be on Vine. It’s one of the hottest apps out there right now (available on iPhone only) that allows you to take 6 second videos and share with your network in real time. It’s super simple and oh-so-addictive that shares seamlessly with Twitter and Facebook! As Dina Fierro (Eye4Style) stated, it’s a great opportunity to differentiate ourselves from others with this new type of interactive content while there aren’t any “superstars” in the space yet. Get in there and try it out for yourself! Follow me on Vine for live updates from NYFW (search for “Christine Lu”).

Attended my first Fall/Winter 2013 presentation by Rita Vinieris. The collection comprised of beautiful and elegant evening gowns. Note to self: Need to limit the number of video takes in a single Vine video! On a positive note, there’s your glimpse into the entire collection!


NYFW - Song of Style

First time meeting Aimee Song (SongofStyle) in person! Just as lovely and sweet as you would expect :D


NYFW - Susie Bubble

And when I thought things couldn’t get better, I bumped into Susie (StyleBubble) at a café with a fellow IFB-er and we had a chance to sit down for lunch together! WHATTTT?!



Attended the Adidas Neo Label fashion show with Selena Gomez sitting in front row thanks to Melanie, teen fashion blogger at Aetherlily!

Day 1 was an incredible day with a lot of firsts. Can’t wait to see what the rest of the week will bring!
