These three gowns are some of my favorite pieces that I have seen this season: La Femme | Ieena | Cushie et Ochs

 

In the next few months, Chicago is booming with black tie fundraisers, galas and events. The feeling of getting to dress up in a floor length gown is one that I have always loved, but comes few and far between. I wore this Parker zing-zag skirt two years ago to Snowball which is quickly approaching at the end of January. This year, I am wearing a floor-length dress in a classic silhouette that I picked up in Milan. Specifically when making a big purchase like a floor length formal dress, I look for something timeless that I can wear again in many different ways and fits me well.

This year, I am topping my dress off with an All Saints leather jacket to give it a little “oomph!”
