#FFFWeek Day 2 Lane Bryant Blogger Conference (Part 1)

Early Wednesday morning, fellow Atlanta Blogger Nikka Shae and I,  hit the streets of NYC headed to the Lane Bryant Flagship store for an invitation only Blogger Breakfast. Both of us, along with several other bloggers, models and stylist from all over the world were chosen to style a look for Lane Bryant and attend this conference. After a mini-photo shoot at the hotel, we were off.

Of course since we were on "Parker Time" we arrived at the store 40 minutes early, lol! We took a few more pics as the other ladies began to arrive. All of us curvy girls taking over the streets of NYC was truly a sight to behold. People stopped, stared and applauded the beautiful array of diversity outside of Lane Bryant.

Once inside I was taken aback as to how beautiful the store was. The whole top floor was reserved for Cacique #seriouslysexy Lingerie and felt like you were stepping into an entirely separate boutique. While inside the store we noshed on tasty treats and chatted with industry insiders on the new look of Lane Bryant and the direction of the A/W 2013 line.
