Photos from the Sparkle and Sophistication Launch

Last weekend I was invited to the launch party for Sparkle and Sophistication, a small jewelry line from a local Chicago designer.

Many thanks to my friend Brandon for accompanying me to the event and snapping many of these pics. You're the best!

I follow quite a few fashion blogs, but only a handful consistently publish posts that really strike a chord with me. For the rest, regularly something is just off about their look. To tease out the difference, I first went through my favorite fashion blog of them all, 9to5Chic. Ahn's blog was the first one I truly fell in love with. Even if I didn't like the cut of the pieces in each outfit or the style, I always somehow still felt moved by the outfit regardless.

You guys! I’m back! Reaching 135 lbs took me a lot longer than expected, mostly due to lots of unexpected social outings involving drinks and, inevitably, food that’s not very conducive to weight loss.
