Chicago Lace

July 20, 2015


Chicago was a complete whirlwind. My travel buddy, Natalie Keinan of The Fashion Hour, and I took on the streets of Chicago and had the most amazing experience. We took advantage of the Simply Stylist Fashion + Beauty Conference and decided to head out to discover the windy city. Neither of us had been so it made for the perfect adventure.

While meeting and conversing with Jacey Duprie of Damsel in Dior was probably the highlight of the trip, we had so many great experiences and discovered incredible restaurants, bars and some amazing places to see if you’re ever in Chicago (travel diary to follow soon).

I wore this Chloé inspired lacey number to the conference along with some sky-high black stiletto’s and it was perfect. Just the right amount of professionalism while still maintaining minimalist style – this was after all a style conference.

Hope you were following along on our adventure in Chi-town on Snapchat! If not, be sure to follow me @prettypetals87 for a look into my crazy, daily life.

    Love the layered look of the dress, and white lace is always perfect.

    WHY ARE YOU SO GORGEOUS THOUGH?! You pull this dress off so well. Perfect, really. I know I never could because I have a lot of hips but dresses with this silhouette are amazing on you!!!
