LNOA: Meeting Time

I have these broad swimmer/surfer shoulders which make me hesitant to wear anything with shoulder embellishments for fear of being mistaken for Patrick Chung of the Patriots (yes, I named Chung because he is the first Asian in the NFL who comes to mind). Still, when I found this Elizabeth & James frock, I couldn’t resist: I’m a sucker for well-placed grommets on a sleek sheath. So much of a sucker, in fact, I got the dress in black as well. I wore the pale pink/nude version to a meeting recently and paired it with black and gold spiked DV by Dolce Vita booties (not shown).

I got a few compliments on it so I think my football shoulders concern was all for not; or maybe everyone was just too polite to say what they really thought so they erred on the side of positive and told me it looked awesome. Toss-up!

Studded shoulder dress, Elizabeth & James.

Not me, wearing the same dress.

BET Awards was my time to get a little funkier and edgier. I’d been sitting on this dress - not literally - for a bit and though it’d go kinda balleristic (yep - “baller”istic; you’re welcome) with a Gwen Stefani-esque pompadour (complete with mini-braids on the sides, although you cannot tell from the picture) and my black cage DV by Dolce Vita shoots (shoe-boots; not pictured). While the frock is nude, the material was hardly see-through so I didn’t have to worry about underthings showing. Studded shoulder dress, Elizabeth & James. Jewelry, Forever 21. View high resolution
