Women talk about fashion and technology while getting dolled up at Beauty Bar X

From March 10th to the 12th, women trekked from all over town to get into Buyosphere's Beauty Bar X, where they enjoyed free manicures, massage, gifts, and more. 

On March 11th, organizers Tara Hunt and Deanne Yee, held a panel on "The Future of Mobile: Cutting Edge Innovations and Predictions for Where the Industry is Going" led by Women in Wireless/Women Innovate Mobile. Panel speakers included Erin Newkirk (Red Stamp), Veronika Sonsev (inSparq), Megan Berry (LiftFive), Polly Lieberman (Celtra), and Rachel Sklar (Change The Ratio). 

We attended "The Business of Fashion Lunch Panel: The Unlikely, but Lovely Marriage of Fashion + Technology" on March 12th, moderated by Tara Hunt (far left) and featured presenters (pictured above, L-R) Liza Kindred (Third Wave Fashion), Gina Mancuso (LoveThatFit), Caroline Waxler (Lucky Magazine) Mary Gail Pezzimenti (Daily Buzz Style), and Melissa Gonzalez (Lion’esque Style).
