A while back I mentioned I had a few things planned this month, including the Chicago Ideas Week talk about fashion, girls night out, Dogtoberfest, and a fashion preview of Cotton Candy Couture’s new lines. Well, I honestly planned to do all of these things, but life sort of got in the way and I didn’t get to all of them. What is it they say – people plan, God laughs? Right. I decided that from now on, I will wait until after I do something to talk about it.
So, here is a good summary of the Fashion Talk that I missed out on – I heard it was really inspiring!
Dogtoberfest happened on the coldest, rainiest day yet this year, and I wimped out and didn’t go. However, I do have some adorable pictures from the doggy costume contest from their Facebook page here! The hot dog is my favorite!
I almost wimped out from attending the Cotton Candy Couture preview because of my surgery to remove the piece of glass that my toddler accidentally smashed into my face. I have a little bandage on my chin and I was feeling majorly insecure about it. I know that is a little shallow but it is the truth. Eventually I bucked up and went, mainly because I didn’t want to go back on my word and I had already rsvp’d over a month ago. I am so glad I went because I was really impressed by the pieces!
I met the designer, Jenna Zielbauer, who was equally sweet and beautiful. Below are some pictures I took of the collection that will be available for purchase soon! I would describe the clothes as a fun, beautifully feminine, one of a kind collection of formal and semi formal pieces.
|Loved this sweet entry table!|
|One of my favorites is this yellow and white dress for sure.|
|Such fun detail on some of these dresses, from beads to feathers to peplum. Also, I’m in love the the animal prints!|

By the way, my styling session with Renee is NEXT weekend, I got my dates mixed up. I’ll have a post about that session then. Promise.
