Happy Monday! This was my last weekend of freedom before spring classes began. What's the best way to spend my last weekend of full pleasure? Meeting new people...of course. So Julia (from Aesthetic Design Style) and I made the trip down to Bloomington to have lunch with some of the movers and shakers in the Indiana fashion industry.
The luncheon, planned by Leah Barr of Circle City Style, included attendees from Indianapolis and Bloomington; bloggers and photographers. In attendance was myself and Julia Rutland from Aesthetic Design Style, Michael Trace from Michael Trace Photography, Crystal Hammon and Emily Lytle-Painter from Dresses Her Days Vintage, Jessica Quirk from What I Wore, freelance fashion writer Erica Sagon, Truen James creative director of the House of 5th clothing label and treasurer of Indianapolis Fashion Collective, Christy Pastore founder of the online magazine Fashion Wrap Up, Chelsea Kouns model and the 2011 face of Fashion Wrap Up, Kaitlyn Elyse Fashion Wrap Up stylist, owner and creator of T. Party Clothing and photographer David Van Deman.
We noshed on Indian and Thai food at Cafe Django, laughed and talked shop. It was great to finally meet the people I talk to everyday on Twitter and Facebook in person. To all you other Indiana bloggers out there, there will be many more meetings of the minds in the near future.

After my time in Bloomington, I ran to my sister's house so I can see the Colts slaughter the Jets...or so I thought! Yeah we loss, the final score 17 to 16. It was very upsetting. My sister's friend, Sarah, was more enjoyable than the game. I have a huge potty mouth, but you have to know when to shut if off. If no one else is talking rude and crass, I think you should keep your mouth to a minimum. Needless to say my church going religious mother shuttered every time Sarah let a cuss word or a crude comment slip from her mouth. It was funny to watch and I almost thought my mom was going to wash Sarah's mouth out with soap! LOL

Classes start today and I'm not a bit excited. This was probably my last weekend for free time until summer, but I was happy to spend it with talented and entertaining people!
