NYC Chic

Cynthia Rowley is one of my favorite designers that I am lucky enough to have worn on my recent trip to NYC! As many of you know, Cynthia is from Chicago and I hold the Windy City near and dear to my heart. All of Cynthia Rowley’s designs are exquisite. With every piece, you can tell the hard work and dedication she puts into her creations, something I very much admire.

This being said when the opportunity came along to spend a night at the Wyndham’s Presidential Suite we knew that we couldn’t pass up on this amazing occasion. Chicago is not only our hometown but it truly holds a special place in our hearts.

I must admit when the boudoir-inspired trend came back onto the scene last fall, I simply couldn’t get enough. And lucky for me, I’m still loving the slip dress this fall. I’ve layered my silk slip dress over a black turtleneck (very Parisian chic, wouldn’t you agree?!) and added a beret, as well as nude strappy heels to complete the look.
