A couple weeks ago, I jetted over to Vegas to attend MAGIC Market Week. It was my first time going, and it was absolutely exhausting, but lots of fun! There were 2,000+ brands there, so even though I tried, I wasn't quiiiite able to check out all of them. ;) It was interesting seeing the behind the scenes action of how buyers from department stores like Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom, all the way to small boutiques, shop and curate clothing. And of course, it was great chatting with lots of brands that are excited to work with bloggers! Based on everything I saw at MAGIC, here are a few trends that you'll definitely be seeing more of:
- Perforated and laser-cut leather everything
- More peplum
- Tribal print
- Embellished necklines
& Here are some Insta snaps from my work hard/play hard trip! Captions read top to bottom, left to right. Follow WTFab on Instagram, here.

This Jackery Bar charger (c/o) saved my/Jennifer's phones several times during the convention. After all, what's a fashion blogger without their cell phone for tweeting/instagramming? Super light and convenient, I slipped it in my purse and was able to get a few extra juices into my phone whenever I needed it. Thanks Jackery Bar!! Get yours here.

Swag! Fun fact: I think we've all heard that "Swag" stands for "Stuff We All Get," but I recently heard that back in the day it was used on flyers for underground gay events and stood for "Secretly We Are Gay." No clue if it's true or not!
