Blogger Brilliance Conference: Recap!

As mentioned earlier, I was in Tampa this weekend to be part of the Blogger Brilliance Conference held at the International Academy of Design & Technology. It was such an honor to be asked to be a part of both panels {creative and business} and share it with super talented bloggers {Vahni from Grit & Glamour, Carrie from Carrie Wildes Photography, Holly Hamann from Blog Frog, Kristina Medhus of Pretty Shiny Sparkly, Jodi Furman of Live FabuLESS, Marjorie Harper from HSN and Holley Sinn, host of Studio 10 & author of Hollisphere}. The panel was moderated by Kristi from Bon Bon Rose Girls and she did an amazing job with the Q&A!

The event served to kick off Tampa Fashion Week.... So after the conference we where able to head over the International Plaza for a fashion show hosted by no other than the amazing, Tim Gun! I thought the fashion show was ok but loved all the tips and comments Tim gave throught out it!

More pictures after the jump.

I really loved sharing what I have learned {sometime the hard way} with other bloggers!!

Ready for the Fashion Show...!

Keep it classy, be feminine, tailored, tailored, tailored and proportions are key... and just enjoy fashion where some of Tim Gun's comments!!!

Fabulous lunch at Brio with bloggers hosted by Holly Hamann from Blog Frog!

Meeting Tim gun was amazing! He is even more gracious in person... as if that could be possible!

All in all, it was an amazing experience!! Thank you Kristin so much for inviting me to be a part of it! And to White Book Agency for putting on an amazing conference together!!! You did a phenomenal job!!! And special thank you to all the bloggers that came to me an introduce themselves and had the nicest thing to say... from the bottom of my heart thank you!!

I am from Tampa and I did not know there was a fashion show at International Plaza!! Nonetheless, hosted by Tim Gunn, who I absolutely adore. I am in school at Florida State University in Tallahassee studying Retail Merchandising and Product Development. I wish you came to FSU to speak! The girls in my major would love that. Glad you had an amazing time, what an honor!
