I know, it's been forever! And I have no excuse. Lets chalk it up to travelling, soaking up summer, finishing my job and starting a new chapter of my life. Hmm... ok, those sound suspiciously like excuses. Forgive me? 

And these photos are hella overdue, but they're too much fun to not share! We're getting quite the awesome little blogging community out here in Van and the other night (okay, almost 2 weeks ago!) we met up at the cute Gastown restaurant Cobre for food, sangria and the requisite fashion talk!  
There was the usual suspects of Cara of A Fashion Love Affair, Cee of Coco and Vera, Mina of Faboulista and Alex (our lovely organizer!) from To Vogue or Bust and also a few beautiful new faces like Melissa of Miss Melissa, Jen from Prairie Girl in the City and Lynn of Hearted Girl (who I can't believe I didn't grab a snap of, seriously a huge sweetheart!) 
From L-R Cara, Melissa, Alexandra, Cee, Jen, Mina and moi!
I'm wearing: Blue Skirt- Banana Republic, Polka Dot Top- Urban Outfitters, Grey Suede Heels- Nine West, Straw Clutch- Vintage

Oh and I'm sure you'll all be happy to know, my outfit that night was "Lady of the Night" approved... 
So, there's that.
And, on an unrelated note, I may follow my gut rather than google maps from now on when it's trying to lead me down places called "Blood Alley"...

All in all though it was a wonderful night, I'm really quite a lucky girl to live in such a pretty city with so many other fashion obsessed ladies!
