Our very own fairy tale closet finally opened in Chicago.

I am so thrilled to announce that we have our very own Rent The Runway store now, located at 710 N Wabash Ave, Chicago. I attended their launch event on Wednesday which was so much fun! The store truly is magnificent. You are surrounded in shades of gold, silver, and champagne, and the store has a lot of perks too, such as a “selfie mirror” for all fashionista’s who like to take a selfie while in the dressing room, beautiful seating enclaves, and in-store styling appointments. If you are in town, or even better – if you are from Chicago then you should definitely drop by and play Cinderella for the day! Four-day apparel rentals start at $30 and run up to $800, while accessories rent at price points from $5 to $400.

I wore a Cedric Charlier dress to the event paired with a AV Max bangle which are both rented from Rent The Runway. I truly loved the dress, it is so colorful and chic! Just perfect for fun events!

On this note, I would like THANK Rent The Runway, and the wonderful team at SKIRT PR for the wonderful collaboration & for having me and my friends at the launch event! We had so much fun with our fellow Chicago bloggers!

I am sure you will see me sometime soon again!

Much love.

“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!

I am so excited to announce that I have teamed up with Rent The Runway to give YOU an exclusive look into their rental designer apparel and accessories! Rent The Runway is known for their four-day apparel rentals which ranges from $30 to $800 (sizes 0-22), and accessory rentals from as low as $5 to $400. You can also book an appointment with them and get a stylist at a $25 fee. Based on the information in the guest’s style profile (size, body type, and style preferences), a personal stylist will pull head-to-toe looks and provide a one-on-one consultation with you.

I am wearing the “Last Summer Rose Gown” by BCBGMAXAZRIA and I am completely smitten, and guess what?! Throughout the next couple of weeks I will feature more designer clothing and accessories from Rent The Runway, including a wonderful Monique Lhuillier gown.
