“Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.”

– Harriet Tubman

A DREAM CAME TRUE this past weekend when I wore this beautiful Monique Lhuillier Dress from Rent The Runway. My husband and I went to the Symphony on Saturday, followed by a visit to the Art Institute of Chicago. It has always been one of my favorite places downtown. Home to the third-largest collection of fine art in the United States, The Art Institute of Chicago aims to inspire me every time I visit.

And before I forget:

Chicagoans, have you marked April 30 on your calendar for Rent The Runway’s GRAND OPENING in Chicago’s luxurious and historic Gold Coast neighborhood?! Also, I will be attending their launch event on the 29th – hopefully I will get to see some of you there! Definitely come and see me! Would love to meet you!

As always, thanks much for visiting & have a wonderful day!
