Biggest Glittery, Giddy Promise of Promise

Given my adoration for Elle, it should come as no surprise that I have a major crush on Roberta Myers, the editor-in-chief. Her Editor’s Letter are always so inspiring. My favorite quote from her latest letter:

“Of all the great cities in the world, New York is still the one that holds the biggest glittery, giddy promise of  promise – the idea that if you have something to say, do be, create, try, or conquer, you can do it here, that the romance of the self can actually be fulfilled. The young, ambitious types who set out for New York with movie-made notions of what’s to come discover that the city is in fact better than the fantasy, because there’s so much more to the place than they were able to imagine.” – Roberta Myers

I love it. Beyond incredible. This quote now has a permanent home on my sidebar, resting alongside all my favorite quotes. What are your favorite quotes?

xoxo Hannah
