Last week I mentioned that I love any excuse to dress up. Luckily for me, 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.
