Hey all! I have been in LA for the bast 3 days for the Lucky FABB West conference. The FABB conference was even better than I had expected which is kind of amazing because my expectations are painfully high. I met dozens of amazing and ridiculously well styled women and made some new friends!
Everything from the speakers to the poolside lunches left me feeling empowered and inspired. It was ultra refreshing to be surrounded by so many like-minded and incredibly smart women who have created a way to inspire and build businesses out of their voice. I was super pissed off that I hadn’t thought to pair printed shorts with a matching blazer that day. Damn, that was a good choice, Caity. That aside, FABB was basically euphoric.
Most memorable things heard from speakers:
“This is better than all my marriages.” -Betsy Johnson on Lucky FABB
“Life is too short not to be bold.” -Drew Barrymore
“I don’t think you can. Some things fall off the table.” -Drew Barrymore on women having it all.
“I get told every day that I should die for my opinions…but I don’t care.” -Kelly Osborn
“Look at yourself in the mirror and say ‘you are really fucking beautiful.” -Kelly Osborn
Best beauty tips learned:
Get the fake lash look without falsies: use brown mascara at the roots, black on the tips! Adds definition and depth. -Bruce Grayson of PG Beauty
Happiness is the best makeup.” -Drew Barrymore
Needless to say, I think this will become an annual trip. I’ll post outfits from the trip shortly. (It is likely that “shortly” means Monday because I am running the SF Rock ‘n’ Roll 1/2 marathon Sunday morning.) Wish me luck!
