Chicago Blogger Meet-up Recap

Hello Gorgeous! This past weekend I was thrilled to take a break from my school work to go hang out with some fabulous bloggers from the Chicagoland Area! Some of these gals you might recognize from a meetup I went to at the beginning of the summer, but I also got to meet many other amazing ladies for the very first time! Lisa from Archives Vintage was sweet enough to put this event together (thank you!) and picked the perfect place for us to meet: Deliciously Vintage.

What I wore: Asymmetrical dress by Nanette Lepore (purchased at Off The Fifth for about 85% off); Pumps by BCBG Paris; Zebra Print Clutch by Halston; Watch by Swiss Legend; Jewelry by Tara Lane Designs.
Thanks to Sara of It's About the Look for taking my photo before I had to leave to pick up my very drunk fiance from a five hour long beer tasting. :)

Showing off our Kensie treats from the fabulous gift bags Tabitha put together! L-R: Emily of Sartoriography, Andrea of Blonde Bedhead, Tabitha of Defining Tabitha, Randi of Not Just Mom, Yours Truly, & Sabrina of Defying My Closet; Photo by Juliana of That Shop Girl
More Lovely Chicago Bloggers- doesn't everyone look fabulous?!
Deliciously Vintage was definitely a wonderful (albeit dangerous) place to host the event. We all did a little browsing while we were there and I saw so many pieces that I would have loved to take home with me!
This amazing dress on display in the front of the store was one of the many things I wish I could have purchased! If you live in or near Chicago, you should definitely check out this store. It's absolutely beautiful!
Here's a group shot of some of the amazing girls I mingled with. Unfortunately, I was already gone at this point, so thanks again to Sara for sharing this photo! Top Row (L-R): Randi of Not Just Mom, Emily of Sartoriography, Lisa of Archives Vintage (the fabulous girl who put this all together), Leilani of Thriftaholic, Sara of It's About the Look, & Nikia of ChiTown Fashionista; Bottom Row (L-R): Piper of Cheap & Chic in Chicago, Tabitha of Defining Tabitha, & Sabrina of Defying My Closet
For a full list of attendees, check out Lisa's Chicago Blogger Meetup Homepage. I had a blast catching up with the gals and meeting even more fabulous Chicago bloggers. It's always fun to meet the people behind the blogs you love, and the blogging community is always so supportive! Not only did I have a great time with everyone, but at the end we were also given some amazing gift bags Tabitha put together filled with treats from Uncommon GoodseShakti, Kensie, Payless, & more!

Thanks again to Lisa for putting this together and Tabitha for helping with the gift bags! I had a wonderful time and look forward to hanging out with these amazing gals again soon!
