Bow Tie Neck Dress


Last night, I met a couple of girlfriends at Cindy’s at the Chicago Athletic Association. It is one of the hottest places to go right now because the panoramic views of Millennium Park, modern airy feel and delicious cocktails and had been dying to stop in.

After sipping on a delicious Grey Garden cocktail and catching up for a while, we then headed downstairs for a party hosted by Chicago Social Brides in the hotel’s iconic ballroom. There was live music, beautiful decor and tasty hors d’oeuvres – all combined to make one for one fun event!

Even though I completely missed the 30’s dress code on the invitation, my bow tie dress (a steal at $58) was still perfect for a night of cocktails and networking. I even had a few gentlemen in the crowd tell me how nice I looked ????

And since I can’t style my hair in an updo to save my life, I headed to my favorite finishing salon, Goldplaited. I channeled beauty maven Julia Engel and asked for these adorable milkmaid braids. I am amazed each and every time they can get my short hair into a fabulous braid.

They have a braiding class coming up this fall and I really think I need to sign up. Any takers?!
