Meeting Samantha Balk in Chicago, Illinois!

A few weeks ago, I took the train to Chicago for a portfolio review for school. My best friend Lauren said I could stay with her (on a complete whim... thanks, Lauren!!) and when I wasn't at my portfolio review or having breakfast with Lauren and her friends, I was visiting Samantha Balk. We had become friends after an interview I did with her a couple of months ago and countless hours of instagram stalking. She owns Rose Vintage and has the cute cute cutest apartment! I loved spending time with her and meeting her fiance Donovan and their sheepdog, Otis.... It's so refreshing to meet people who have similar interests as you do, isn't it? Thanks for being so amazing, Samantha! Also, I forgot to mention that I got one hour of sleep the night before I took the train to Chicago.... that is why I look sleep deprived! I was a little loopy!
Some of Samantha's Rose Vintage beauties for sale. (I'm still lusting after that yellow fuzzy sweater sticking out in this photo..... )
 Lauren, her room mates, and I had a coloring party at breakfast.... I drew avocados, of course! (this was just a process photo... they weren't done, yet!)
 Eggs Benedict....
love, polly :)
