What NYC Recessionista Wears: IFB Conference, Day One

I’ll be recapping my entire experience from the two-day Independent Fashion Bloggers (IFB) Conference on Friday … but for now I wanted to share my outfit from day one 🙂

Earrings by NansGlam on Etsy / H&M dress (similar here and here) / LOFT cardigan / necklace c/o NY & Company (similar)  / J. Crew bracelets (similar here and here) / Anthropologie bracelet (similar) / bracelet c/o Ann Taylor spring 2013 (similar) / wishbone bracelet c/o Julep (similar) / watch c/o Caravelle by Bulova / J. Crew Factory tights / Clarks boots

I instantly loved this dress when I saw it — it reminded me of the dress that designer Patricia came up with the first week on Project Runway.

I love the full skirt — I feel really sassy in this dress!  I love the full skirt, the pleats and the abstract pattern.
