Texas Style Council Conference Weekend

This weekend I attended the Texas Style Council Conference, which was put together by 2 local fashion bloggers, Indiana of Adored Austin and Grechen from Grechen's Closet. It was a great chance to meet (mostly) Texas fashion bloggers and have the opportunity to discuss/listen to panels about being a blogger, what makes this type of media so relevant today and how to improve. It was an amazing time!

The Sunday conference opened with key note speaker Jennine Jacobs of IFB

who's topic was "The Past, Present & the Future of Fashion Blogging," which was so inspiring and really hit upon finding personal fulfillment. She was the perfect candidate to start the day!

Kelly Framel, a.k.a. The Glamourai, is also from Texas and she sat in on the the panel about blogging as a career.

There were great topics like "Going Pro" and a few sessions on photography basics. And that was just the Sunday conference!!!

Friday evening they held a swap not just for those attending but the public as well and there were so many goodies to grab from...

I'll post what I ended up taking home very soon! (Believe it or not, I took home less than I brought, I'm trying to clear some of the clutter from my closet!)
On Saturday there was a scavenger hunt, a DIY using your broken jewelry and a party/dance at the end of the night plus more events on Sunday evening.

The whole weekend was inspiring and incredible and I can't wait for next year!

Yay! So glad I got to see you at the conference. I agree-- it was amazing and inspiring. Wish you could've made the party at BoConcept on Saturday night, though. Something tells me next year's event will be even bigger and better! :)
