musings #8

I haven’t been blogging lately and it’s because of pain.  Physical pain. I have tendinitis in my arm and my doctor ordered physical therapy three times a week.  It’s not the way that I wanted to start the New Year but I am trying to remain optimistic.

While all of Chicago is suffering with this Arctic weather we are experiencing, I can only dream of warmer weather. The amazing Balmain campaign for Spring Summer 2014 featuring RiRi is nothing short of fabulous and making me count the days until the seasons change.

I wrote a column for the Women’s Forum about Winter Weddings: What Every Bride Should Consider.  It was such an honor to be asked to write the article!  Please check it out!

Have you heard of Second City Club?  It’s a food and wine club in Chicago. The next event looks to pretty fab and I’m totally bummed that I have a work conflict.  If you are interested in joining, drop me a line. 

I have been a fan of Alessandra Branca every since finding her now closed boutique near Water Tower.  She was recently selected to design the Designer Visions 2013 for Elle Decor, which has a great video that shows off the tented dining room (seriously, I’m dying over here) and fabric walls much better than the magazine feature. Dering Hall has the photos from the Elle Decor photo shoot as well as the ability to buy some of the products.
