"Well behaved women rarely make history."- Marilyn Monroe #
With hundreds of conferences, tweet-ups, meet-ups etc. for networking, it is difficult to make time to decide on what to go to, let alone attend. Between running LLD, the launch of my new business Bridal Plus, watching my fabulous niece 5 days a week and trying to organize my life, sometimes my schedule just won't allow another thing! But, after attending yesterdays 140 Conference in Central Isplip, Long Island it looks like I am going to have to work harder to make the time. The event was new to me, while many of my fashion industry colleagues attended the Fashion140 at Lincoln Center on May 4th, I had not been able to attend. The live tweets, positive buzz and amazing praise of that event led me to believe that I should really make my way to the next 140 conference, and so I did.##

I recently had a friend of mine ask for some help in finding a "cute, summery dress" for a big event she has coming up. The event isn't formal, it isn't anything glitzy but it is a HUGE deal, and so for her to reach out to me not only made me feel special and honored, but obviously sent me into an immediate search for tons of options for her, thus resulting in this blog. So here ya go Lyn, my top picks... happy shopping! ##
My apologies for my tardiness w/ this blog; sometimes they sit in the "drafts" and I forget about them, such is life! In any event, with every fabulously dressed celebrity comes one who just never thought to look twice in that mirror!
