Hey loves! Last Thursday I attended an event for Emploi’s 1 year birthday bash at the Raven in NYC sponsored by Double Cross Vodka and RPZL. They invited a few bloggers to wear one of their dresses to the party and then show how we styled them for the day and night. I wanted to pick a dress that could easily transition from work to happy hour, so what better than an LBD?
Every woman needs a LBD hanging in her closet. My favorite thing about a black dress is that it can take you from work to happy hour and all things in between. For the day look, I wanted to keep it simple but still interesting. I love the pop of yellow with this bag and this statement necklace helps to make it stand out more. I went with classic black pumps and a low side ponytail then added my “geek” glasses for more of a sophisticated/studious look. I kept my makeup pretty simple and added a light pink lip. When transitioning into the night, I really wanted to show that all you have to do is make a couple of tweaks!
Belt: Forever21/ Bag: Phillip Lim For Target/ Bracelet: Mikay Love
For the night, I let my hair down, took off the glasses and added a bold red lip which makes the look more fun. Instead of going with an obvious pop of color, I decided to do a pop of print instead with these leopard print shoes. I added a belt to define my waist line more which also added another element to the dress and I chose this gorgeous statement necklace. I decided not to use a clutch and went with my mini satchel to keep the whole black and gold theme going. I played up the accessories a little more creating a bolder look. I still wanted the night look to have a sophisticated chic feel.
A special thank you to Marina and Cyndi for having me be apart of this.
Hope you liked today’s post. Have a great day!
