Special K Starter Pack Giveaway x Runway Event w/ Robert Verdi {CLOSED}

Alright, summer is over and while it has been fun, now it’s time to lose those extra pounds you’ve gained, so why not take the Special K Challenge??

Last month Special K took Chicago by storm when they set up an impromptu fashion show in the Thompson Center.  During the show women were asked to strut their stuff in their favorite pair of jeans(or whatever they were wearing) down a pop-up runway.  Special K’s goal was simple, they wanted “women to celebrate the confidence and sass that comes from looking and feeling great in that perfect pair of jeans rather than focusing on a size”.

Special K Runway Event-Chicago

I had a ball watching people strut their stuff up and down the runway with such confidence and hell of sass!

Perhaps the highlight of the event was celebrity stylist Mr. Robert Verdi himself, who hosted the event!

I got a chance to speak with Robert before the event started and it was like talking to an old friend. We discussed everything from what he had been up to, to how he became involved with Special K, he was an absolute joy to talk to.  Since I’ve never taken the Special K Challenge, Robert explained that the process was very simple, all  you have to do is replace two meals a day with a Special K product.

Sounds simple enough right?

Robert went on to tell me some of his favorite fall trends which included color blocking that include neutral colors and pops of bright color….

Ya’ll know I love color so it’s offical I love Robert Verdi!

Besides color Robert explained that people want and need to feel confident when buying clothes and I couldn’t agree with him more.
