April + May KC Blogger Meetup Events Recap

Have you entered the EL Vintage $25 shop credit giveaway yet?

OK, so I know I am totally behind on posting this, but better late than never, right?  These past 2 months have been some exciting ones in terms of blogger meetups.  I attended 3 events where I got to meet up with some fellow Kansas City bloggers.  It’s always fun meeting up with others who “get” blogging, where I don’t need to explain what a blog is, and people who understand the need to take pictures of my outfit every day.  🙂

Kate Spade / Lucky Brand Fashion Show hosted by Tim Gunn!

Look!  It’s Tim Gunn!

So much great color from Kate Spade!

A trench coat dressed down and dressed up, I need one.

Remixing your wardrobe, something I need to master.

Yes, I was really there.  🙂

Dirty Laundry | Pretty, Polished, Perfect | Chasing Davies | Me | Simply Bold

Shirt: Shop Tobi | Cardigan: Forever 21 | Pants: Target | Shoes: Zara | Necklace: Forever 21 | Watch: Target {similar}

Thanks Meggy for taking these pictures for me!  By the way, Tim Gunn said that white denim is IN this year.  Lucky for me, I own a pair and that’s exactly what I was wearing.


Blogger Meetup – Copyright Law Discussion

This was an educational (and fun) event where we learned a little bit about copyright law and how it pertains to blogging and social media.  We had some interactive discussions and what it really came down to was “give credit where credit is due” and always “link back to original sources.  There was a real great group of ladies that showed up and it was fun to meet some new to me bloggers as well!

Shirt: Gap | Skirt: H&M {similar} | Shoes c/o B.A.I.T. Footwear | Necklace: Forever 21 {similar}| Watch: Target {similar}

Thanks Kristina for the outfit pictures!  It was fun walking all over town trying to find a good backdrop for the photos, haha.


Madewell Style Session

Ever since I heard that we got a Madewell at a local mall, I’ve been dying to visit.  And I finally got my chance!  A few bloggers and I met up for dinner and Dean + Deluca (YUM!) first and then headed on our way to do a little shopping.  We all seriously like took over the dressing rooms and each tried on like 10 things.  I just love all the polka dots, stripes, chambray, and colors that Madewell has right now.

Pretty, Polished, Perfect | Peridot Skys | A Dash of Details | Me| Bon Chic Bon Gastronimique

Ummm yea, we all bought something!

Tank: Madewell | Cardigan: Madewell | Skirt: Forever 21 | Shoes: Zara

And here’s a little outfit I put together with a few Madewell pieces.  Outfit post in a dressing room, now that’s genius.  😉  Thanks Shea for taking these pictures for me!

Can’t wait until our next meetup, which I know will be pretty soon!!  🙂

P.S. The winner of the La Posh Style $30 shop credit is Geraldyne of Life, Love & Fashion!  Congrats girl!  Send me an email at sandyalamode(at)gmail(dot)com and we’ll hook you up!

    I’m incredibly jealous of all the blogger events and meetups you went to these last couple of weeks! I don’t think there are many bloggers in Wisconsin so that’s out for me. That polka dot skirt looks super cute on you!

    Seems like a fun event, educational, and of course, fun! I’d love to remix my outfits too. Madewell is such a fun store, I just wish their prices weren’t so high. Your curly hair is so cute!

    Oh Sandy, I absolutely love all of your outfits! I am also in love with Kate Spade!

    I’m so jealous! The blogger meet ups seem like a great opportunity to hang with fabulous people who truly understand what we are doing, and the Kate Spade show looked like so much fun!

    You look great in all your outfits but I especially love your skirts!
