After deciding to attend my first Girl Power Hour cocktail networking event in Seattle, I had no idea what to wear. Yeah. Image consultants deal with that, too. I tweeted my girl Kat Kim who was going to be moderating the panel what the dress code was. She suggested semi-cocktail, semi-business. That I could do! So here’s what I came up with.
Earrings: Francesca’s | Red blazer: modbod (similar) | Gold clutch: thrifted (similar) | Navajo print tank: Francesca’s | Gold watch: Fossil (similar) | White pants: Gap | Gold peep-toe shoes: thrifted
Before I left for the event, I tweeted a photo of my outfit on Instagram with the #fitfab hashtag. When I went to introduce myself to Darnell Sue, Girl Power Hour’s founder, she recognized me from the photo I posted. Social media really does open the door to making connections with people.
The Girl Power Hour theme was Fit and Fabulous and the panel had some fantastic things to say. One of my biggest takeaways was to deconstruct your craving. Ask yourself what that craving is really about. Do you need that food or do you really need a hug? Then act on the root cause of it. Check out more Fit and Fabulous takeaways here.
What would you wear for a semi-cocktail, semi-business dress code?
