I spent last week in Salt Lake City for the Altitude Design Summit. It was an incredible experience! There were speakers, classes, dinners, parties, gifts, goodies and a ton of networking! I met so many creative and inspirational people that at times it seems like it could of all been a dream! I’m already looking forward to Alt. 2013!
My Alt. experience began at The Viking School of Cooking where I had a delicious meal prepared by two super cool food bloggers: Lindsey of Cafe Johnsonia and Jen of Delightful Delicacies and their assistant Becky of The Vintage Mixer. Everything was fresh, local and oh so good! The main course (pictured below) was a creamed polenta with braised hearty greens, sun dried tomatoes and pine nuts. I could eat this everyday! You can find the recipe here.
Thursday night was The Winter White Party and everyone looked fabulous!

Friday night Alt.Summit held different themed mini parties in the 3rd floor suites of the beautiful Grand America Hotel in downtown Salt Lake City.

I met one of my favorite bloggers Gala Darling who was sweet as pie!
Thanks for everything Alt.! See you next year!
I can’t wait to attend the Alt. Design Summit in Salt Lake City although I must admit I was a little bummed, (well actually terrified) when I heard the big party of the event was a Winter White Party. I don`t do white, or winter white, or cream or even beige. I`m a gray and black kind of a girl. So, I have been on a quest to find something to wear and I FINALLY found an amazing dress by Lela Rose hanging all by it’s lonesome in Nordstrom Rack for 85% off!!! It fit perfectly and inspired me to create these 3 looks!

I was obsessed with these Jeffrey Campbell shoes the moment I laid eyes on them. Once I realized I could actually stand AND walk in them I knew I had to have them. They are inspired by so many people I love…Lady Gaga, Alexander McQueen and Daphne Guinness.
