I have been with Mode Media (formally known as Glam) since October of 2013 and this was the first event of theirs I have been to. This was a great opportunity to not only inquire about what is to come this year, but all to celebrate the success of the previous year.

I decided to wear this new wrap dress because we would be on a rooftop and I needed a dress that would not pick up with the wind. I also wanted a flattering silhouette and I do not own anything more flattering then a Kristin Hassan wrap dress. Truly! It's cinches above your waist making you seem much slimmer then you are. SCORE!
I kept the styling simple by adding a nude shoe, gold jewelry, and a mint bag.

As soon as I saw the skyline, I knew I needed to take a panaromic photo. Not a bad view huh?! This was my first time at this lounge, but I plan to go back.

The food was super yummy and the signature drinks were beyond!

I wish we would have gotten a photo of all the ladies who attended, but below is a shot of about 1/3 of us. So fun meeting fellow Mode Media bloggers from Chicago. I can't wait to chat more with some of my newer acquaintances and obviously is was so fun seeing some girls I am proud to call my friends!
It was also super great seeing Hallie of Corals and Cognacs who was in from NY to host the event.
