Weardrobe NYC: DAY 1

So today kicked off the first day of the Weardrobe Conference! 21 bloggers came including me and it's absolutely insane: today we did photoshoots and just got to know each other with interviews and pizza and hanging out in expensive hotel rooms that smell of herbs and MONEY and GOOD LOOKING STRANGERS.

We're staying (Me, Tavi, and Brooke) in a double bed version of this room. It's really nice and I think I'm going to end up beating Tavi up in my sleep but thats ok because I am a fan of revenge and will allow her to throw hot water on me if i do so:

It's gorgeous! The whole hotel is gorgeous. Here are some pictures of whats been going on so far -- total insanity. Tavi and I will do a vlog this weekend to bring you guys up to speed and stuff.


Jessica from WhatIWore is so gorgeous and nice! Legs miles long, the photographer has obsessed with her and Brooke's glasses (slow and steady wins the race, SO JEALZ)

Sara, Amy, and Brooke being gorgeous and fashiony and whatnot


Cheap Monday swag. I thought it was originally scarves or something but of course I was pleasantly surprised. I grabbed the polka dot ones and some great grey ones.

Hello children! Belle is too exhausted and tired aka LAZY to write so she's fondling her Where the Wild Things Are figurines while I write. Clearly I am The One That Cares in our relationship.
(oh, this is Tavi btw.)

Oh, and about the jeans above, I thought they were ties laid out for my dad and Belle's dad because they have to share a room tonight. They are currently being old man-y over drinks, which would probably mean Lactaid for my father and something cool that says "I partied with Patti Smith and Freddie Mercury" for Belle's (he did. It's nuts.)
Goodies! Shoes, shoes, gift cards, shoes, jewelry, candles, more lovely things we'll all probably babble on about for weeks. Meh meh meh meh meh.

Yayyyy I love people.

It's like Christmas! Tim Gunn can be Santa Claus. This is because I watched an old season of Proj on the plane when I should've been sleeping/doing homework (the slash is necessesary as when I do homework I am usually 9/10s asleep.)

Ok, speaking of SLEEP, aka finishing Ghost World, I guess we must be off. TA TAAAAAAAAAA
Belle and Tavi and Brooke (in spirit)

Here’s a list of tools you will need to start: Jewelers’ pandora jewellery wire cutters - If you can only afford one pair, get memory wire shears. pandora charms These are designed to make clean cuts on tough memory wire, so can also be used for pandora charms uk softer wires. Chain-nose pliers sometimes called cheap pandora charms needle-nose pliers – Very versatile for picking up and grasping small items, pandora charms sale bending eye pins, closing jumps rings, even closing crimp beads. discount pandora charms Round-nose pliers – Used for creating loops on beaded head and eye pins. Can also be used for winding your own jump rings and as the second pliers you’cheap pandora ll need for closing jump rings. Optional pliers – Wire-looping pliers which have several graduated circumferences to allow you to form perfectly uniform jump rings and loops in place of the pandora discount uk round-nose pliers mentioned above. Crimping pliers which have little notches to allow you to both flatten a crimp bead and then bend it to form a rounded finished look instead of the flat crimp you pandora uk get using the chain-nose pliers. As for materials, I recommend some assortment packs of beads in coordinating colors, some decorative metal spacers, seed beads in both silver and gold These can serve as spacers and beautifully set off pandora sale your other beads., tube-shaped crimp beads Buy the best you can find – these are what hold it all together!, head and eye pins. Other than that, let your choice of project be your guide. You might want some silver or pewter charms.
