I have very exciting news for LPF! I am so excited to announce that I've been selected as a Verizon Voices Style Blogger! This past weekend I took the train down to Chicago to meet the team of bloggers participating get trained in how to use my new device, and of course have a little bit of fun in the Windy City!
We were given the new Samsung Galaxy Camera to test out for the next 6 months! So you'll be seeing some blog posts talking about it throughout the year. It's pretty much a fashion blogger's dream, because it's sort of a hybrid camera phone / DSLR. It offers the clarity of a high end camera with the ability to edit, use apps & send photos to social media channels right from your camera's wireless connection! I'm looking forward to taking it with me to all my summer activities.
Now, to share some of my favorite moments from my trip to Chicago!
*disclosure: I am participating in the Verizon Style Voices program and have been provided with a wireless device and six months of service in exchange, but all opinions and views about the product are my own!
So official right?! To the right is my geeking out over phone technology face!
The obligatory #armparty shot with my new camera!
We were lucky enough to have front row seats to attend the Art Institute of Chicago's fashion show! It was SO much fun for the former fashion student in me.The students are so talented and truly the future of the industry. I was dying over this mermaid inspired look, fifties style knits & metallic sneaker wedges!
My look for the day (it ended up being SO cold, so this was covered in a down coat for a lot of the trip!)

We had one of the best meals of my life at Spanish, Tapas Restaurant, Mercat a la Planxa! The historic hotel it was in was beautiful (loving that chandelier & gorgeous celings) and food amazing. I loved that the menu was set so I could take some chances trying tapas that I wouldn't normally try.
I had so much fun meeting all of the sweet & stylish bloggers in the program -Sandy, Teena, Sarah, Lindsey & more! So much fun bonding with other ladies who don't look at you funny if you ask them to take an outfit picture or need to stop to instagram your dinner ;) Thank you to Verizon for a fun weekend & an amazing new camera to document it!
