Fashion Forward Conference: What I Wore

Last week I co-hosted the Fashion Forward Conference during New York Fashion Week. It was wildly successful thanks to amazing partners and dazzling speakers. For my part, I changed clothes THREE TIMES during 9 hours. Let's run through the outfits. First, I wore a new dress from Abi Ferrin. This dress arrived as a gift last week and I loved it.

The Greta dress ($310) is available now I paired it with DVF wedges (it was 91! that day) and a colorful new Kahlo limited edition necklace from Stella & Dot. That's my Marketing Manager, Brooke, in the photo above. After the red carpet with Rosie Pope, Countess LuAnn and Phillip Bloch we got down to some fabulous and meaty panels.

Then came time for the fashion show. The first outfit was a new yoga look from New Balance. The Aneu yoga line has been a favorite of mine. I'm sporting the Karma top here.

Then I wore an ebates-sponsored look. The dress was J.Crew (3% cash back!) and the boots were from All Saints (2% cash back). I was going for more of an office look here. Given, the boots make it a little edgy. The necklace was from Charming Charlie.

and I might be saving the best for last. Maggy London sent along dresses for three models in the show and included this little number for me. It was love at first sight. The lazer-cut dress is on the site now for $138. It is a-mazing and it's pleather not leather. The bag I got to carry was from Brahmin. Quite a day of dress up for this fashion lover.

I was thrilled to be one of the 25 models we sent down the runway--full recap coming soon, but you can find out more about the Fashion Forward Conference here. I hope you’ll share what you’ve been wearing on Monday Mingle. Monday Mingle is a fashionable collaboration between me, Jill from Glamamom and Kristin from BonBonRoseGirls. Each week we post about our personal style and then invite our friends to join in the fun.

Momtrends was not paid for this post. As always, we get a lot of free clothing to style. But no one paid me to put any of this together.
