Hello, Wild Pretty Things!
The Chicago Theater is one of the most Insta worthy spots in Chicago. With such an stunning location, I had to have an equally stunning dress. This beautiful purple dress from Akira is so eye catching + really popped against the lights of the Chicago Theater. Continue reading for more on this look!
Purple Dress from Akira

Akira is a brand that is based in Chicago, so it was only fitting to work with them in making my ‘Explore Chicago in One Day” video. This purple dress instantly caught my eye because of the beautiful purple / lilac color. Pastels are usually saved for Spring, but I find something refreshing, and unexpected, about caring the color into Summer and Fall.
The large bow detail is another feature of this dress that made me have a serious crush on it. The placement is perfection + makes the dress SUPER flattering. The dress is made out of scuba material, which is also very flattering. It hugs you in a little bit and makes your figure look super slim.
Paired this dress with these super comfy designer dupe heels. These Valentino dupes are a small fraction of the price at under $40! Also, added my favorite velvet clutch to add some texture to the look.
I love the way that purple and gold hues pair. So I stuck with gold for the jewelry + added some pieces from Forever 21. Picked up this gold layered necklace + charm bracelet, which looked great with this dress. The earrings were from a swag bag at event this Summer + are by Lisi Lerch. These earrings added the perfect amount of drama to the look – perfect for the theater. If you missed it, Check out my ‘Explore Chicago in One Day‘ video below!
