August 16th was a big day for fashion and beauty bloggers, vloggers and lovers as BeautyCon 2014 occurred at LA Mart. The line was around the corner 45 minutes prior to doors opening and the crowd was excited about seeing their favorite Youtube stars.
I had the pleasure of attending as a VIP and very much enjoyed the VIP lounge as my resting area in between running around the place. Not to mention the wonderful complimentary alcoholic drinks ;)
It was wonderful seeing familiar faces, meeting new people and being within an arms reach of the Song sisters, Claire of Hey Claire, Amy Pham, Shameless Maya, Jenn Im and so many more!
Since it was my very first BeautyCon, I wanted to dress up for the occasion. This mini tulle skirt from Bliss Tulle was the perfect pairing for the AMI Clubwear white crop top. The leopard accent on the bag was the perfect pop against the outfit and the zipper detail of the heels finished it off.
I hate carrying around large handbags when attending events so this Salsit bag was just what I needed. It is the perfect size and I have been wearing it around town often.
As for the heels by Elliott Lucca, they were probably not the best choice as it was my first time wearing them so breaking them in at an event like this was not easy on my feet. However, when I wore them again in Vegas recently, they felt completely fine. With all heels, you just have to get used to them. I absolutely adore the zipper detailing and the peep toe feature. The back is actually braided, including the heel portion, which makes it a standout piece to wear.
I had an amazing time at BeautyCon and can't wait to go back next year, or perhaps I'll get lucky and get to go in NYC? We shall see ;)
