Nope. Definitely Not Afraid of Color.

I love my work’s annual party. We all get dressed up and have a fantastic time eating, drinking, and playing with fake money at a Casino Night. For the second year (last year here), I went with my man Ted Baker for another fantastic dress. Last year, I went pale pink. This year I thought I would kick it up a notch with Ted Baker’s Jineen.

Oh I’m sorry. Did I blind you? It looks brighter on camera than in person. But y’all know I love me some color. And this my friends is the epitome of color. It was cold here in the ATL last weekend, so I had to put on black tights underneath because my legs were freezing (and let’s not lie…I didn’t want to shave my legs!).

She recommended a smokey brown eye and pale pink lip. So, that’s what I did! And I think her advice was spot on. I’m so lucky to be able to get her advice whenever I need it. Every woman needs a Heather.

I happened to have this necklace from J. Crew from last year. I think it really pulled together the black tights. Love the various colors of not only the pink, but blue, green, yellow, and black.

I own a lot of purses, but I don’t own a lot of “going out” bags. Luckily I had this great black clutch from Stella & Dot from a few years back. It was the perfect size to hold all of my stuff.

Let’s not leave out some of the wonderful women I work with – I’m so lucky! A couple of comments I heard about this photo: “Em, we look like we are at your bachelorette party” and “Are we your backup dancers or something?” Ha! Nothing like standing out 🙂
