Night Out On The Town? Take A Cue From Corri McFadden

A night out on the town can consist of something as simple as dinner and drinks with the girls or as elaborate as one of Chicago's incredible black-tie affairs — like the Green Tie Ball coming up this Saturday. Style maven Corri McFadden (of eDrop-Off and VH1's House of Consignment fame) is one of the co-chairs this year, a perfect choice for the annual soirée that generally attracts a younger audience. But no matter what your plans are, sometimes it's nice to get ready from head to toe — kinda like you did for the prom, minus the over-the-top dress, that is.
So, how does one of the most stylish women in Chicago prepare for a night out? She's got it down to a science with these five steps:

1. "Blowtique for a great blowout. Save yourself the hassle of trying to get your hair perfect; let the pros do it! They're quick and easy, not to mention conveniently located in River North."

Blowtique, 1 East Huron Street (at State), 312-280-2400.

2. "Astrowifey for a creative manicure. A basic mani is great, but if you want to personalize your look and stand out from the crowd, go see this expert nail artist."

To book an appointment, call or text 773-241-4120. Address will be disclosed once appointment is booked.

3."Uber for your ride there. So simple and so essential. Just download the app, and when you want a car (taxi, SUV, or town car), Uber will send a car to you."

4."Leah Chavie for a spray tan. If you're looking to get a little color, do it safely! A spray tan is the way to go. Not only do you get great color, it's also quick and hassle free."

Leah Chavie, 2457 North Halsted (between Wrightwood and Fullerton Avenues), 773-327-7051.

5. "Neapolitan for the perfect dress. The dress is crucial. From McQueen to Dior, this well-curated boutique has something to offer for everyone. The staff is extremely knowledgeable and accommodating if you're looking to try a new style or not sure which one of the latest trends would look best on you."

Neapolitan, 715 Elm Street (at Arbor Vitae Road), Winnetka, 847-441-7784.
