Now to the good part. Being a brand ambassador of Shoedazzle and Justfab has its perks. One is the yearly ambassador meet up. Many of us live very far from each other and while we chat quite a bit we don’t get to see each other as often. This is our version of “Girls Trip”. We all etch this time out from work, families, pets and school to come together for the love of shoes. The 3 day weekend consist of information, shoes, drinks, food, and a whole lot of fun. While in Chicago before and after our necessary events we hung out and saw Chicago.
I will say now that it was not enough time for me. Chicago was an interesting place to me. While the people were great and friendly, we often got stares as if we were over dressed ( which we probably were), The streets were clean and where I stayed it was not overly crowded. There were a few nice places to go catch a meal and/or relax with friends. The ppl were not as friendly as they are here in the south but I am from New York so that’s not such a big deal. lol
The one ( and only) thing that really bothered me was that there were these smells that didn’t sit well with my nose. The smells weren’t everywhere but often surprised my nostrils. Others seemed to be oblivious to it but because of my strong sense of smell I caught every wiff. I could not quite put my finger on what the smells were but they weren’t very pleasant. Besides or despite that… i really enjoyed my stay in Chicago. Having the group of girls that I was with there really helped that. Here are some pics from my time there.
Good bye Georgia (for now)my always infamous bathroom selfie… I landed and looked and felt a mess! But I can’t turn down a bathroom selfie.
The start of fun…
After the even I went. At hopping but did not get a shot of what I was wearing.
The next day another event, food, drinks, shoefies, and laughs. I purchased the skirt when I first moved to Georgia and can’t remember where (sorry), and purchased the bodysuit (that I made into a crop) in Cali last year. Shoes are from Shoedazzle .
After the event we went site-seeing. We needed up at the bean, which ultimately had not real historical meaning but was a great photo opp.
We went to eat and then I headed to a day party, so I changed my shoes and went to get my dance on
This skirt was a piece from my boutique and the top I got last year at forever 21. Booties are from just fab but they no longer have them, here are Similar ones.
After the day party I ran in showered and changed to hang out with the ladies. The only full picture I got of my outfit was this selfie. I had a ball on the last night. I paid for it then Ext day.
Here we are at a lounge looking all beautiful shades of brown.
The last day I was beat, I woke up hung over and very angry at myself, I had to pack and dress for the last day. We had brunch, which is my favorite thing to do. Lol
I literally snatched up whatever was on the top in my suitcase and threw on a hat.
I had a ball (and a few more drinks), we snapped many pictures, chatted it up and at the end most of us parted to head to the airport.
I did a quick wardrobe change and headed to my flight.
All in all I had an amazing time.
