#NerdProm: My Favorite Missoni Gown

 

missoni1

Last week I mentioned that I love any excuse to dress up. Luckily for me,Β  January is packed with black-tie events AKA a great reason to throw on a gown and support a good cause. This past weekend, DJ and I attended Chicago Booth’s Winter Formal, otherwise known as #NerdProm, at the Bridgeport Art Center. This coming weekend, we are attending Snowball. I have gone for the past five years in a row, and love supporting Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago.

When I was in Milan this Fall, I searched for a unique, transitional dress that could be worn different times in different ways. This classic black and metallic Missoni immediately grabbed my attention and it had to be mine. Unfortunately, the dress is not available in the US but I linked a similar one below. For #NerdProm, I threw an edgy leather jacket over it and kept my hair down. Next week, I am wearing it with my hair up and strappy heels.

  1. That is a really pretty dress. I love the jacket you paired it with.

  2. I wish I could pin this πŸ™ I love the outfit so much and the “Blah Blah Blah” purse, I’m going to have to invest in one.

  3. What a gorgeous dress! But I think my favorite is that clutch. How fun. It’s what I’m thinking when people won’t stop talking πŸ˜‰

  4. I love the colors. I have to admit that the bag is just great. It made me laugh when I saw it. The only thing I don’t really like is the shoes. Looks like home slippers.

  5. It’s a lovely and very feminine dres. I like your leather jacket as well, it makes your outfit more edgy (in the positive way):)

  6. I love that style, wish I could pull it off. I’m too short for most dresses that length and end up tripping over them all day! You rock it though!

  7. That dress is really beautiful, and I love it with and without the jacket. Totally different looks, too, and I love pieces like that. Versatility is a huge factor for me when I choose clothing for myself AND my daughters.

  8. That dress is gorgeous! I wish it were available in the US, thanks for the alternative though. I love the jacket with the dress because it dresses it down a little and gives it another layer of style.

  9. Wow! I love the dress, it looks really comfortable as well. I like the pattern and the whole design, it’s definitely something that I’d go for. Perfect for the weather too.

  10. Omg I just love your maxi dress, especially the pattern. I recently picked up a leather jacket that I love and so I’m excited to wear it over dresses too.

  11. What a spectacular outfit! Really love those Steve Madden Imelda heels and the dress too! Like how you completed your outfit with a cool leather jacket!

  12. You totally kill it with this look! The fluffy shoes are so much fun. And the dress is to die for! You got it going girl!
