5 Things I Learned This Week

Social media and a blow out is my idea of bliss. Photo via jessandjill.com.

Kinmont is the new black: and #CBNHappyHours this week proved it. From the unbelievable food and great drinks, we had such a great time with our Bloggers. Thank you to all those who came out and especially to Kinmont!

We're changing our name to Chicago Models Network: No, not really, but after watching our members work their Rent the Runway looks yesterday, shouldn't we?

Second chances are worthy to those who work for it: Chicago, after the past few days, you've made up for your really crappy winter. I forgive you. But don't make me regret it.

We can all bond over caffeine: and had a great time doing so at this week's #CBNChat! Thanks to Corner of The Cafe for sponsoring and for Coffee Con for the awesome giveaway.

Conscious uncoupling is still my favorite line: ever. E-V-E-R.

Happy Friday! This week and I are having an conscious uncoupling.

Hello, weekend!

This morning our bloggers modeled amazing Rent the Runway looks on WGN, hosted by Dana of Possessionista!

Bloggers Sarah of Balanced Babe, Soraya of Chic Flavours, Emily of Isn't That Charming, Shaheen of Lows to Luxe, and Katherine of Engineering in Style looked stunning in their prom inspired dresses, and we're pretty sure they should all take up modeling as a career.
