The event was a fabulous, sold-out success and as one of the organizers and ACI Programming Co-Chair I would like to add a personal thank you to ACI President Natalie Kaan, ACI Programming Co-Chair Helen Bobince, Jeffrey Hattrick and the Ritz-Carlton, and Neiman Marcus and Lisa Pagel for their help and support in putting together this fabulous event.
For those who weren't able to attend, I hope you enjoy these pictures.

|The fashion show was fabulous and so much fun!|
|Loving the poppy print on this dress.|
|Does it get any better than scones with Devonshire cream? I think not.|
|From mini fruit tarts to Scottish shortbread, the Ritz has it all!|
|I've always loved carousels, so I fell in LOVE with this Judith Leiber bag!|
