Launching {Party Time}

 

Hello, Lovelies! I hope your weekend was amazing! For those of you living in Chicago – how CRAZY has this weather been?!? 80 degrees in March…completely insane, right!? I’m not sure if I need to be worried (ya know, Global Warming and all…) or just giddy & happy…

Anyhoo…remember how I mentioned a “Special Party” I attended last week? I finally finished editing all of the Party Pictures over the weekend. I hosted a little Miss Renaissance Launch/Charity Event at The Violet Hour last Wednesday. We mingled, ate delicious apps and fantastic desserts, sipped on bespoke cocktails (The Violet Hour makes some of the best in the city), listened to fun tunes by Brown Eyed Style, and shopped some of Luxury Garage Sale’s fabulous treasures. Part of the proceeds, along with the guests’ generous donations, went straight to Chicago’s Chapter of Bottomless Closet – they’re a fantastic charity supporting & empowering women nationwide – check them out some time! Thank you so much to everyone who attended, and a special thanks to Lisa Ostrenga of LM Event Design for being the most fabulous & lovely event planner of all time!
