You're Flying Me To #SoFabCon14- But What Should I Wear?

You may recall, earlier this year, I wrote a blog post in which I panhandled on the side of the freeway, baked pinata cookies, and shared re-imagine childhood drawings in hops of winning a scholarship to this years #SoFabCon14. And you may or may not have heard that I was one of 6 bloggers chosen- yes, I actually won something; and something pretty awesome, too! As part of my prize I was awarded with a full blogger pass to the 3 day event, shared lodging with another blogger, and transportation to and from the event (minus on the first leg to the actual airport.) As you can imagine I was pretty stoked- but I was also immediately terrified. I am a social butterfly, online.

With the power and confidence of amazing brands behind me I blossom with creativity an energy. When I am in front of my peers, whom I have never met face to face, I tend to have an anxiety attack. No fears my loyal fans, I will triumph! But there was the tedious obstacle of what to wear; every woman's agony. Whether you have too much clothes, or not enough, choosing those few outfits that you will be seen in can be tough. Thankfully SoFab put together a nifty What To Wear guide! Armed with this magical document I put together the following clothes....
