Day & Night With Emploi

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?

Day Look
Dress: C/O Emploi/ Shoes: C/O CharlieByMZ/ Necklace: OIA Jules 
Bracelet: MadeByMichele/ Bag: olivia + joy/ Glasses: Geek Gone Chic 

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!

Night Look 
Dress: Emploi/ Shoes: C/O CharlieByMz/ Necklace: Prima Donna
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!
