fash•ion (fash-uh n) & life (lahyf) | chicago blogger meet up giveaway

Saturday I had the pleasure of mingling with some new and already existing blogger friends at Deliciously Vintage in Pilsen for the Chicago Blogger Meet Up.  As usual, it was a great time talking shop with people who all have the same interest in fashion/style as I do.  These are real friendships and it's so great to see all of us evolve together in the blogger community.  Also, I'll be honest - I'm really glad I've made friends with people who are much better at taking outfit pics than I am because they let me sneak into their shots and they share their pics with me.  Thanks to Andrea and Lisa for these wonderful pictures - as you can see I spend every minute of my life so seriously. :)

It was so incredibly fabulous to meet you (finally). We should do some photoshoots in the neighborhood sometime!

Also, I LOVE THAT YOUR SHIRT IS FROM ZARA KIDS. I adore shopping in the kids section because once in a while, there is pure gold in there.

happy Tuesday,

You definitely have a flair for incorporating colorful accessories in your outfits, I'm still thinking about your shoes! Ah, the Melrose Flea, how I miss it so, I used to go at least once a month back in L.A.

Thank you for wrangling the goodies for the bags, I love swag! :)
