For work, I attended a Business of Sports luncheon. I was expecting it to be a bit more formal than it actually turned out to be. It was incredibly fascinating to hear some of Chicago's biggest sportscasters tell stories about how they started out and how the game has changed over time. Also, the had the best dessert...I thought about whipping out my camera and taking a pic, but decided not to be that person! It was a mini cupcake size, with a cookie shell, filled with caramel, topped with chocolate...yum...I had two!
I wanted to wear this new dress that I purchased at Target, but I new I had to tone down the short length and flowyness for work. So, I decided to dig out my tights and my new brow boots that I have been waiting impatiently to wear...love how the boots lace up in the back! Also, I added cream-ish blazer and understated jewelery for some polish.
For the night I decided to ditch the tights and boots and style my dress with my favorite ankle boots, dangley earrings and more jewelry.
My favorite part of the night was getting a makeover. I am not really a far of anyone else doing my make-up...I have sensitive skin and it turns red when you even look at it the wrong way...but I thought what they hay, it will be fun!! Since I was throwing caution to the wind, I told the stylist from Smashbox to go all out and style me up with something besides the basic brown shades I always wear. When he whipped out the teal eyeliner I was a bit nervous, but I love, love, love the final product.
break free from the world of the neutrals...It's funny, I love
I had planned on doing more shopping, working my way down Michigan Avenue to check out Topshop, marking a few more things off my fall lust list, but instead, just hung out, ate too much...all in all, a fun and stylish evening was had by all!
