WWDMAGIC and Teen Vogue Blogger Lounge


I love being a Teen Vogue girl!

I finally got the chance to look through my pictures from the WWDMAGIC trade show and Teen Vogue Blogger Lounge. I learned so much about the industry from a brand new perspective in just three days! The trade show was a perfect example of what really goes on behind the scenes in the fashion industry. Where do those clothes you see at the mall or the boutique down the street come from? It all starts with the relationship between the brands, the products, and the buyers. But there is so much more to this cycle than just that. How about us . . . the consumer? The girls who love fashion and who are the ones that make the biggest impact on the success or downfall of a brand. Hello . . . fashion bloggers!


We ran into the lovely Diana Kang from the blog Diana Kang! Such a nice surprise since I love her blog!


The amazing Hayley from Kensie! She was so outgoing and fun to talk to. She was so welcoming to all of us bloggers!


The two coolest ladies ever, twins Rebecca from Style With Benefits and Melanie from Wrecked Stellar.


Blogger love! My sister and I can't wait to hang with these girls again here in L.A.!


The beautiful and fabulous Canadian blogger Elim Chu from The Style Seen.


The amazing dresses at the Kensie booth.


Stacks and stacks of Teen Vogue issues. This is where my love for fashion really started


Getting our pink bubbly on at the Kensie party.


Rebecca is my girl! Peace.


At one of my favorite booths . . . the Blue Bird booth. Natalie modeled for the brand not too long ago and her face was all over the place!


Can I just have everything from Blue Bird? This booth was packed with buyers! Everyone wanted Blue Bird for their shop!


One of the most good-looking couples at the trade show. They were so sweet, too. That suit is dapper.


Melanie doing what bloggers do best.


With the amazing and super funny Vu from Threadsense. He was documenting the whole event while his team was going on buying meetings with all the brands.


A snapshot of just one view of the Las Vegas convention center. The place was HUGE!


The Free People booth was one of my favorites. I lusted over every single item!


Morgan from Free People gave Natalie and I a personal tour of the collections. Who wants some fringe?


The blogger panels featuring one of fashion's most influential bloggers, Jane from Sea of Shoes. It was so lovely meeting her and her mom at the event.


Us bloggers having fun with sour watermelons.


Natalie and I with the amazing Jazzy McGilbert from the blog Jazzi McG.


Starting off the second day of the trade show with some very strong coffee.


Bloggers uniting for one of many photo ops. That's Taisa from Amahzing Blog in the cream blazer and headband.


The beautiful and oh so chic Elisa and Francesca from Italian brand P. & T. Furs. They were so lovely.


More rad outfits from the coolest girls ever Rebecca and Melanie.


Me posing in front of the Jessica Simpson booth right by the Teen Vogue Blogger Lounge. The coffee still hasn't kicked in just yet.


Right after the Rebecca Minkoff dinner at Aria hotel. Right before heading to The Cosmopolitan hotel for the Hudson Jeans part at Marquee nightclub. It was an AMAZING night!


I wore a Queen's Wardrobe dress and True Religion leather jacket for the party. I danced the night away and it felt so good!


Posing all crazy at the Hudson Jeans party with one of the cute French guys we met (this photo really doesn't give the dude justice, I swear!). haha

Bloggers were reporting directly from the Teen Vogue Blogger Lounge all day, and so many brands were embracing our presence at the show. The Internet is quickly becoming one of the major platforms for a brand to market its clothing, and fashion bloggers are one of the best people to start with when it comes to making its mark in the world wide web because we are honest and really know what we like and don't. I'm so lucky that my sister and I got a chance to be a part of this thanks to Volcom, Teen Vogue, and Fashionably Marketing! My favorite part, of course, was meeting all the bloggers and making new friends. These girls rule! I took a lot more pictures, but these were just a few of my favorites! If I come across more, I'll get them up here in a future post! I am still working on the video of the trip!

It sounds like you really learned a lot. I'm so jealous! I have no idea how to get involved with this stuff. Maybe people just don't think I am cool enough to invite ...

There must just be a glitch in the system.

WOW! this looks like it was so fun. everyone is so stylish and I have to admitt..

There's so many great outfits happening here... where to start? I'm a big fan of the peach-y blazer and stripes combo, and you can never go wrong with leather jackets and florals. xx

katherinelou said...

awww you ladies looked liked you guys had fun!!!! love the photos!

kgal1298 said...

My favorite one there is Project hands down, but that probably has to do with the fact that when I was their I got a haircut and a manicure :) anyway you know not a lot of people realize how brands work and Magic can help you get a heads up on everything. Though not every brand there is created equal thats for sure.
