How Chicago Gateway Green Executive Director Heather Wollitz will glam up for a Gatsby-themed Green Tie Ball Sept. 13.
Ted Baker: crystal snake chain belt, $110.28; Asos.com
“A friend told me about [Asos] a couple years ago and it’s been by go-to spot for great accessories like this belt.”
“I know I can always find something great by [Alice + Olivia]. I have a dress of my own, which I will be wearing to Green Tie Ball this year.”
“Every once in a while — or two — you have to splurge on a treat for yourself. This is mine.”
“Kelly Cardena’s salon does amazing work, and they have been so wonderful to our staff at Chicago Gateway Green. They’ve donated their time to do our updos and makeup before Green Tie Ball.”

“Glossimer is my all time favorite gloss. This color goes with everything from day to night.”

Lana Jewelry: Glow ring, $740; Lanajewelry.com
“I love to add a pop of color to a beautiful black dress, especially while supporting a local designer like Lana, who donated two pieces to our silent auction.”

“If you can’t purchase your favorite perfume in a rollerball for clutch purposes, then you must buy one of these atomizers.”
