Dolce & Gabbana + EDrop-Off/Christian Siriano


As I'm still hard at work on the project I mentioned to you, I have another little event recap for this week's second post.  It was such an honor to be a guest of the Chicago Dolce and Gabbana party with the D&G President herself attending, Federica Marchionni.  The entire store was decorated as an enchanted forest, and along with decadent hors d'oeuvres were drinks of champagne and chambord.  As a lover of glamour and opulence, I was mesmerized by the luxury and beauty everywhere I turned.  They even had a beautiful harp playing... my kind of party.  Then we were off to another event - Corri McFadden's Edrop-Off 10 year anniversary party with Christian Siriano as the guest, featuring his new fragrance "Sihlouette."  It was such a fun evening and always great sharing the night with my glamorous ladies.  I'll see you next week and don't miss my latest outfit post!

Fire Escapes || Red & Animal Print for Daytime


Chicago has historical charm and the excitement of a big city, but I love that it feels so much cleaner and less chaotic than New York... for those of us who love the city but don't want to live in quite the beast that a very large city can be.  I also am so inspired daily walking around - I feel elements of days gone by in the stunning architecture everywhere.  Even fire escapes in narrow allies somehow inspire me and make be feel the excitement of where I live.  Today's outfit is a classic combination of red with animal print inspired by the 1950's, and I'm quite in love with my new skirt.  It's actually really thick which is perfect for Fall and Winter and I was impressed with the quality and weight of it.  I know I'll be wearing it all throughout the colder months!
