Over the weekend my husband and I had a date night in the city, a perfect opportunity to get dolled up. I found this gorgeous red number at Farfetch. It came in the mail a week prior and fit like a glove. I love this dress because it’s so incredibly versatile – it’s the perfect summer dress. Farfetch always has the best selection of dresses; I’m currently coveting this one and this one.
Happy May! As we move into the fifth month of 2021 (is it just me or is time just flying by?!), I’m sharing a peek into my life lately. I’ve celebrated my 7th blog anniversary last month and one of the things I’ve said in my anniversary post was that I will try my best to keep up with my blog. So, let’s get started!
It’s my 7th blog anniversary, can you believe it?! It was exactly 7 years ago that I decided to post my very first blog post. Who knew that by hitting the PUBLISH button my life would change forever?! Many of you have probably noticed that I took a year off from blogging. I’ve posted sporadically here and there but it wasn’t consistent. With the pandemic a lot has changed…, including myself.
Let’s face it: Chicago is cleaner than New York City and nicer than Los Angeles. I’ve lived in Chicago for more than 15 years and I still swoon over our museum campuses, with art, sea life and T-Rex bones among the attractions. I always say that no city can beat Chicago in the summer. You can catch a concert in the Frank Gehry-designed pavilion at Millennium Park or take a stroll through our famous Magnificent Mile.
I’ve been blogging or shall I call it “influencing” for over 6 years now. I started What Would V Wear on a whim and big dreams. I set goals for myself, spent countless sleepless nights working on my content while working full-time until I quit my corporate job to pursue entrepreneurship. Six years later, I’m proudly self-employed. It’s been a wild ride but one I wouldn’t want to change for the world!
