Pre-FABB Festivities

I arrived in California early Thursday, the day before LuckyFABB was to start. During the registration process, we were asked if we would be in town the day before and since Mr. Fantastic and I have friends and family in the Los Angeles area, I always try to come in early and stay through the weekend.  As a result, I was available for the pre-conference events that were planned.  The first was a blow-out at Blow Me Away Bar that was sponsored by Wendy's and their new salad collection.  I have to say that I loved the new Asian Cashew Salad and have had it twice since I've been home.
I met up with Veronica of The Cid Style File at the Blow Me Away Dry Bar during our blow-outs and we decided to walk around the corner to find some fonuts which are baked donuts instead of fried. On the way back to her car, we found the holy grail of fashion blogger photos: the brick wall. I decided to take advantage and take my outfit photos here. LOL.
Top: H Trend; Denim: J Brand Jeans; Scarf: Converse (old)
Earrings and Necklace: Baublebar (old)
Clutch: Reed Krakoff; Sunglasses: Marc by Marc Jacobs; Bracelet & Ring: BaubleBar (old)
Rose Gold Sandals: Prada (current by Givenchy or See by Chloe)
After getting our fonut fix and taking outfit photos we headed to Duplex on Third where Lucky was hosting another pre-FABB event with Sexy Hair.  Since we arrived early, we sat at the bar and had some drinks to chat. It wasn't until everyone arrived that we realized that all events had been overbooked and Veronica hadn't been placed on the RSVP list.  I went upstairs to the event and discovered it was another styling event and while we found it odd that they had two hair events back to back, we were happy that we had already had our hair done and stayed below in the bar eating appetizers and giggling over drinks.
Thank you, Lucky for an awesome start to FABB!

  1. Looking good Ana! Nice to know that you're having a good time visiting family in LA! I've been on a mini break visiting family too :)

  2. JUNE! I miss you, friend! I haven't been to India in almost four years and my husband and I are thinking of booking a return trip soon. We want to hit up the Mumbai area and the Taj Mahal during this one. I will keep you posted!

  3. This was a fun day, glad we got to hang out and have some girl time before the lucky fabb!

  4. Me, too! Seriously, we need to plan a get together for a weekend without having to fight for seats at a conference. Maybe in the fall? Or MAYBE YOU should come visit Texas! :)


Tell me what you think, but be nice! You catch more flies with sugar than spice!
