A neutral dress and Christian Siriano

DSC_3730
I wore this to work on Tuesday and since it was such a neutral, simple outfit, I added some fun accessories to spice it up! 
That night, I attended Conversations in the Arts, hosted by Columbia College Chicago where Christian Siriano, was speaking. He was the season four winner of Project Runway and has been my favorite designer to emerge from the show because of his talent, design aesthetic and larger than life personality. As cheesy as it sounds, it’s inspirational to see someone so young succeed early on in a career, no matter what industry, but especially the fashion industry. He was a hoot to listen to and I wanted to steal his cute outfit and wear it myself.

    I don't know if I'm more obsessed with Christian Siriano, or Amy Poehler's version of him. Both are equal parts fantastic.

    Dig the neutrals – I just bought a blush pink dress today and I can't wait to style it!
