solemates...chicago x fashionation magic recap part 1...

this here starts the magic recap...b and i took off to vegas earlier this week- while mouse, ashley and our new intern nikki held down solemates... it was our first time leaving our baby, but we left it in good hands. thank you guys for keeping everything tight! you made it easy for us. back to the recap...we started this trip toooooo early in the am, but business needs to be handled. that being said- i had my "new" bberry in hand, while brian was equipped with his spiffy iphone and psp- talk about a team (joke). anyhow, the flights were something else- booked on delta, we flew a sea plane (charter) to atlanta and switched over to korean air, no joke. when was the last time you stepped off a plane outdoors in the states? we were on our way to vegas- ha! altogether the end result was awesome, we met up with our bkc fam- ouigi, gabe, and ness- and the trip began... more to come.
