Ready, Set, Gala!

The week I have been anxiously awaiting for has now arrived! Our Annual meeting! It is always bourgeoisie, educational and highly entertaining. It is almost like a high school reunion for everyone as it brings together colleagues from all over the country into one hotel for one week straight. This week contains an awards gala, presentations from our VP and President, insightful workshops and tons of “swag” we get to go home with! 

I wanted to pick a dress that would be versatile enough to go from the conference to the gala, so I picked this chic number and paired it with some elegant details. I also brought along my favorite bag. This is the ultimate corporate woman’s bag. It is not only cute but it works as an everyday bag, computer bag or even a carry on. I load this white and black beauty with my computer, a clutch (I check in my large bag at the bell desk and take the clutch out with me aka bag in a bag), pens galore (I love pens!), make-up bag, Advil and hand sanitizer (hate germs!). The greatest part about this bag is that it is TOTALLY affordable. You will notice that my dress and purse are more on the affordable side, whereas my shoes are a little more on the steep side. Yes, Saint Laurent is not cheap. Are they worth it? ABSOLUTELY! I use these heels at work when I feel like being large and in charge and I also rock these when I am out with friends on the weekend and want to be fierce. If you are still having doubts, message me and I will give you 5 reasons to say YES! 

Wish me luck at the Gala! Hopefully I make a great impression on the big wigs!
