Girl from North Carolina To New York City

by Lee Oliveira on February 14, 2011

Those who follow me on twitter or facebook know that I’m in New York for Fashion Week and this is my first blog post from the Big Apple.

I arrived here on Tuesday and it has been all go. This is the first time I’ve been able to sit down. I feel a bit spaced out and I’m not sure if it’s the jetlag or the fact that there is so much going on here. My head is spinning.

On Thursday I attended the IFB Evolving Influence conference. Can I just say… if any of you bloggers out there are thinking of doing this in the future, don’t just think…. do it. I highly recommend it. I feel I’m a wealth of knowledge when it comes to blogging now.  Besides that, I have made great connections with some amazing people. Let me now introduce you to one of them.

This is Vhani from Grit And Glamour. When I first started blogging, she was one of the first connections I made and I follow her blog religiously. She is such an intelligent woman and I hold her in the highest regard. Vahni was one of the panel moderators and what an amazing job she did. If you were watching the live stream you would have seen her in action. If you ever want to know about fashion blogging, she is your “go to” girl.

I was so excited to finally meet her and we connected like glue. I can’t remember the last time I laughed so much.

NYC misses you Vahni. Most of all… (Chelsea Dinning W 23th & 8th).

Such an honour to feature you -“Street Style“- on my blog.

See you soon.

PS: this is my first time at New York Fashion Week and it won’t be my last. I have been invited to attend some shows and will soon have some amazing street style photos to share with you all.
