after an amazing trip to chicago packed with sightseeing, shopping and of course eating tons of pizza and hotdogs, we needed an epic ball out night of fine-r dining. we chose a restaurant called epic. it was a trendy spot in downtown chicago with culinary delights, cute cocktails, and an upscale crowd. upscale to the point that they were incredibly annoying: two couples on a business dinner at the table next to us mentioned the words "richard branson", "auction" and "10 million dollar deal" so many times i was about to toss my $13 cocktail and scream, "ENOUGH! my earrings were less than $30. now that's a deal!" i've got a little too much class to go that route, but it would've made for an even more epic night.
here's my attire for the final night in chicago:
|iron maiden hoops, free people, $28|
|helmut lang wool button front vest, gilt, $148.95|
plush fleece lined tights, shopbop, $35
THEY KEPT ME INCREDIBLY WARM DESPITE THE FRIGID CHICAGO TEMPS!
steve madden booties
forever 21 dress
rachel leigh chain ribbon cuff, shopbop, $105
i have to thank the bf, who is becoming quite the photographer. as i was adjusting my coat and preparing to hit the elevator he started snapping some candids. the first was before i realized what he was up to. and the second looks so contrived but was actually captured in the moment i looked up. my eternity scarf is bop basics by shopbop and does a wonderful job of making me look cool and keeping me warm. the jacket is my wonderful vince paper leather one from tjmaxx that i mentioned a few posts ago. enjoy!
