IFB Conference

Today I attended the Independent Fashion Bloggers (IFB) Evolving Influence Conference and had an amazing time! I love connecting with new bloggers as well as old friends, and I got to meet some of my biggest blogger crushes.

I have been wanting great flare jeans for ages (like, at least a year), so when J of Fatshionable linked me to a pair at The Gap, I knew I had to have them. I haven't shopped there since middle school and I wasn't sure I could fit into their largest size (20), but I took the risk and ordered them online. Sure enough, they fit perfectly and I couldn't be happier. I wore them today with a sheer top from Forever21 for a bit of a retro look.

  5. You look beautiful! I really love that sheer top, and the pants are amazing. I need to fall back in love with light colored jeans. For too long all I've worn is dark denim. Looks like you had a great time :)

  12. I LIVE in GAP jeans! They always fit perfectly, and when you order online you can get them in lengths! Im a 14/16 (18 depending on the cut of the jean) and im 5'9, so GAP always fits me! Love this outfit!

  13. You're hiding some pretty sweet wedges under those lovely flared jeans! Really, your entire look is fabulous. You look great! So Karla's Closet (whom I also follow on Blogger/Blogspot) is the inspiration for your lovely blog? Equal respect to Karla. By the way, nice handbag, hair, smile, and face as well! :)

  24. Hi, I just joined your blog. I saw your article in Plus Model Magazine, followed the link to the Time Out New York article, and followed the link to your blog, and here I am. It's cold in NYC now, how are you not freezing in that outfit? It looks great. I also liked the black and white and teal outfit you were wearing for Plus Model Magazine. I live in NYC, too, Staten Island, "The Forgotten Borough." I have a blog, where I write about fashion, style and beauty, and review books on those topics, with a slant towards plus-size fashion and beauty. It's:
