Last night I attended a networking event that a sound design company was hosting at the Underground Club downtown, and various companies within the production industry were invited to this event. It was my first ever networking event within this industry, and it was a great experience! I met a lot of great and awesome people, that could potentially help me get one step closer to where I want to be (crossing my fingers).
I typically dress professionally in any work related event; I feel as if it helps to present yourself well and is just appropriate for that setting. Although, in this industry people do not really dress up, rather they dress down... Which is totally fine too, but knowing me I LOVE it, and personally I missed dressing up professionally! For my look last night I did not want to be just in all black... I of course decided to wear some color to add a bit of "oommph" to my outfit! For this look, it's simple but stylish! I bought this pink peplum skirt from Forever 21 last summer, and absolutely adore it! The only issue with wearing this skirt is that it's quite tight at the bottom, so it gave me a little to no room to walk! "Beauty is pain..." Haha true statement....The pink colored skirt also gives your outfit a summery feel to it, and the peplum helps to give detail!
I finished this look off with my Jessica Simpson nude pointy heel, which made the look more polished and sophisticated. Pointy heels are always a great essential to have, it's a great piece to add to your closet.
