I'm a little jet-lagged so this big soft bed looks mighty good. But it's crunch time. No sleep allowed.
Tadashi Shoji have left a special package at my hotel with three dress options for tonight's festivities. I could die. Is this real life? Can't be...
1. Cutout Jersey Halter Cocktail Dress in Peppermint ($348.00), 2. Embroidered Lace Peplum Dress in Sand ($328.00) 3. Pintuck Jersey Boatneck Dress with Sheer Lace Detail in Marina ($348.00).
12:30PM I have just an hour before it's time to grab lunch with the Lincoln team. For a business lunch, I wanted to look stylish but still tailored. I didn't bring any blazers with me but I did bring a pair of tailored pants, a cargo jacket and some new red heels.
After tootsie rolling because I can actually wear open toe shoes (I love LA), I put together a look I think is both sophisticated but still reflects my sense of style.
The Cargo Jacket, H&M, $59.95
The Red Heels, Zara, $89.99
The Cream Blouse ($29.99) & Chain Link Necklace ($12.95), H&M
The Handbag, c/o Handbag Heaven Kourtney Crossbody Mini Satchel, ($42.46)
Behold the final look before makeup. Comfortable, stylish and still professional.
Popped on a red lip and I was ready to go!
Stay tuned for a post about the lunch and meeting one of the honorees of the Essence Black Women in Music event sponsored by Lincoln - Lianne La Havas!
