Vegas MAGIC

I've been having such a blast here in Vegas covering the fashion trade show craziness that is MAGIC. Just like last year, I'm one of the official bloggers (check out our Road to MAGIC blog), so the trip has been a healthy mix of work and play. Days are filled with panels, workshops and vendor meetings, and nights are filled with stylish debauchery. 

Thanks to the trip's organizer Kelsi Smith -- the brilliant founder/mother/wonderwoman behind Two Point Oh! LA -- we were treated to a sweet Rue La La-sponsored road adventure here in a massive tour bus, complete with a pit stop at the legendary Calico Ghost Town, as well as generous swag bags filled with goodies from Seychelles, Keds, Elizabeth and James, Lovemarks, Ellison, Fossil and more. There was also a raffle on the bus, which me and my girl Kiara Schwartz of Tobruck Ave won and each scored this rad FujiFilm mini polaroid camera.

I nearly died when I spotted David Tutera of My Fair Wedding, who was at FN Platform (the big footwear trade show) pushing his new bridal shoe line. How fabulously gaudy is his get-up?

One of my favorite moments was when my girls Julianne Waters and Tiana Brown of GIOGO interviewed me for their fantastic Get IN or Get OUT Show. We talked about everything from footwear trends to travel to stealing candy from MAGIC booths. More to come!
