What I Wore :: Lip-syncing + Week(end) Roll Call

Nothing like a good ol'fashioned power lip-synching session in your best dress to get a gal ready for Friday! Believe that shows just how excited I am for the weekend. Truth be told, I'm pretty sure 'Lady Marmalade' is the song playing in the background (or just in my head).... and I'm proud of that! 


Dress :: Elie Tahari (similiar

Fur :: H&M

Bag :: c/o Ms. Pink + Blue

Shoes :: Louboutin

A few thing I found interesting this week :: 

- Need some hair tips for this weekend? Promise Tangeman did a hair tutorial video with the ladies from 'Girls With Glasses'. I'll take any tips from Promise.... once you see her hair, you'll understand. Girl's got hair skills! 

- Have you joined the bug jewelry train yet? I have, and this brooch would be a delight with my ant dress! 

- Finally got our film back from Sundance and found this picture to be my all time favorite.  

- I'm signed up and ready for the IFB Conference on Wednesday here in the city. Who else is going? Looking forward to meeting a lot of new faces! 

- Guess who is on NoiseTrade this week? If you guessed GRO, you're right! NoiseTrade is a super easy way to listen to a selection of great music by an artist for free. Yes, free. And downloaded straight to your computer. Just be sure to leave a tip if you like the tunes to help support the artist. 

- I'm installing a wall trampoline in our apartment effective immediately..... or I'll just march on up to Queens and join that circus school they have where this apparent wall trampoline lives! How amazingly fun would that be! 

Have a wonderful weekend!

Alt Summit :: All Stars

Alt Summit Hangover (noun); happens hours after returning from said blog/design conference. You now have a million new blogs to read and follow, at least fifty collaboration ideas, luggage explosion, a shoe box full of business cards to go thru, and morning gift bag withdrawals. 

How was Alt you ask? Well, the days went by so fast, the panels were packed full of solid advice and perspective and so many new friends were met. Alt Summit 2012 is officially over and now the countdown begins for 2013. In place of a traditional camera, I decided to take along my Fuji Instax to the conference and snap some instant film shots of all the fun new friends I got to meet. So, without further adieu, I introduce to you.....  the first installment of the 'Alt Summit All Stars'!

Colleen :: This adorable gal is the face behind 'Inspired to Share'. You can see a few shots of our Smilebooth takeover here

Brooke + Summer :: This quirky and fashionable duo make being the 'Girls With Glasses' super chic. They were also the hosts of this years Paris-themed mini-party with Pinhole Press

Jeanne :: Not only is her blog called 'Shop Sweet Things', but she literally is.... the sweetest thing! She was also recently featured on Glitter Guide(no big deal!)

Tara :: This 'Savvy Southerner' is my go-to for all entertaining and decorating tips. She's one to know given her days are spent running a phenomenal event company

Jessie :: Talk about killer style on a budget. You'll be dripping with envy if you knew the great steals and deals she finds on fabulous vintage pieces. Want to see for yourself? Follow her at 'Style and Pepper'

Megan :: The creative brain behind 'The Fresh Exchange' and a co-founder of Blog Brunch. We were basically connected at the hip during the conference. So whatever she says she did in her recap, I was probably there with her. The witty Jason Hudson referenced us as a 'package deal'!  


I'm sure y'all have had your fill of Alt Summit recaps, so I thought I'd pass you along to the talented bloggers below who did a fine job with laying out how it all went down. 

Old Sweet Song :: She nailed it. If you read one recap - this one is it. 

The Jealous Curator :: You'll spy my top knot making an appearance on this great roundup of the conference. 

Nat The Fat Rat :: Took the gold medal for the best outfit at the 'Winter Wonderland' party in my book.

Tune in tomorrow for the second installment of 'Alt Summit All Stars'!
