See me (but don’t feel me) talking about the ethics panel I moderated for the Independent Fashion Bloggers Evolving Influence conference in February. You also get to see my dollar dress in action.
I’ve had a Who song stuck in my head for two days because of this post’s title.
I bumped into Roger Daltrey when I was 15 and took his picture. I’ll have to look for that.
YIKES Yr a STAR Wendy!!!
Like you weren’t already…ahem
Bear has taken into consideration your comment and has decided he will also go for the Black Pearls since your taste is immpecable.
After seeing the IFB video, Bear has disclosed that no one gave him a free trip or any free black pearls and he would like to know why not?
I remember watching you on the panel on the live stream. I thought you did a wonderful job and you were the perfect person to moderate.
Thank you for posting this, Wendy. Such interesting, complicated ideas were discussed, so it’s great to hear different opinions. I just loved the dress you wore, by the way! So appropriate!

And how exactly does one bump into Roger Daltry? Do tell.

This was excellent Miss Wendy, I love your word ‘infiltrated’. The emphasis on gifts made me kind of think the categories for same should either be test products or payola, something along those lines.
More importantly (heh-heh), you looked *fabulous*!
Smiles at you,
I totally love your asterix ring- its awesome.
You have great style- and your jewelerry is fabulous! x
Hi dear. i dont know about that-(your comment) i actually have very little 50’s inspired outfits.. strange but thats just how it is.. i might have one dress or so.
love this post and i love how bloggers get more and more to say in society! you look so cute on film!
hope youre having an great week so far.
You look GREAT and sound great. And you were nervous… please. You’re a pro. So… to gift or not to gift, that is the question? I say GIFT!
Ah I love your dollar dress! I saw it on someone else’s blog and swooned!

This is super-duper-super fantastic. Is there going to be more? And more of you talking? More please!!! And, I would love to see that Rodger Daltry photo.
Picture, or it didn’t happen! =P
Still waiting to see that Roger Daltry photo!!
It’s going to take me a while to dig up some photo from approximately 1983, I’m afraid.
That was a great panel – I watched it on the live stream upstairs at the IFB Con.
And my face is in the beginning of the video – how funny!
love this post!!! great photo – looking good!
love the blog too 😀
stop by some time! xx

Really interesting – wish I could have been there!
You’re just awesome. What else can I say?
When I was working my little fingers to the bone in Houston, I was often offered “perks” to push someone’s product to my interior design clients. I think this is common in a lot of fields where product is involved…whether it be a discount, kickback, gift. I never felt comfortable with it…but in hindsight, it was the product companies that I was less likely to recommend who offered the perks. The higher end/well established brands were less needy of this ploy.
Loved the video…you looked great. I wish I photographed/videoed as well as you!
You were articulate, engaging, sharp, and beautiful, as always!
I liked what that NYT guy had to say. Also, the panelist who spoke about products was right no, I think.
I meant to say “on,” not “no.”
That's Not My Age says
Good stuff – can you come over to London for the next one please? Oh and you’d have to wear a ‘fiver’ dress, we don’t have pound notes any more.
For everything about fashion:
yay! We finally get to hear your voice! (just ignore the stalker-ish vibe of the last sentence) The conference sounds like it it was really interesting, your posts covering it gave me a lot to think about.
Yes, I remember this! And I what a deal on that vintage money dress. I know you had to have some work done to it, but what a deal!
Wendy, I guess you can add me to the I love Kate Lanphear list. She is quite nice but then she has no reason to be mean to me. : ) BTW, you look like a million bucks….
You sound much different than I expected!!
