Another full day of design work and a going away party for a dear friend demanded an outfit that would seamlessly transition from business to happy hour. Cue the jewel toned sheath dress. Jewel tones are for women what a red power tie is for a man. It is fashionable, makes a statement, and helps you appear confident/powerful (which… my love… you are!). Gold embroidery (the dress was custom made in Thailand) negates the need for accessory overload. A simple belt is sufficient. And… if you haven’t picked up my rule on color mixing by this point… it’s simple: anything goes! Especially an emerald sheath and sapphire jewel toned shoes.
