As a guest of Olay, I wore this outfit to an inspired night at the ELLE Women in Television dinner hosted by Lena Dunham.



 Held at the Sunset Tower Hotel, the ELLE Women in TV dinner was well-attended by some of my favorite TV heroes like Lena Dunham, Sarah Paulson, and Shonda Rhimes. I always feel a bit torn at these events. A part of me longs to geek out and snap furtive selfies with the celebs all night long while "be cool Jenny" is tempted to chat them up in hopes they'll invite me to Sunday brunch. Predictably I end up spending most of the night off in a corner debating the pros and cons of each approach while nervously stuffing my face with hors d'oeuvres. The night ends without any selfies or brunch invites. Fade to black.

But that night, I didn't think about selfies or brunch as I was fully immersed in the moment and in awe of the women in the room. They personify beauty, confidence, and persevering strength. Their road to stardom wasn't paved with just talent and luck. They maneuvered road blocks, kept going and didn't look back. Being in their presence sent shockwaves of motivation coursing through my body and I sat there listening to their stories, I vowed to never let bumps in the road stop me from crossing my finish line.

Thank you Olay for a beautiful night of inspiration!
