She Means Business
Working it – Vegas Style

This week is all about work and play, so if you have to spend part of your trip to Vegas doing business, you better do it in style!

During our shoot, we had the pleasure of spending lots of time working and playing at Mandarin Oriental Las Vegas, and specifically inside the incredible Emperor’s Suite. Aside from all the luxurious amenities this sprawling penthouse had to offer, there was also an amazing private office space, which was the inspiration for this week’s outfit. 

So many women get tripped up when it comes to dressing up for work. How does a woman entrepreneur keep her look feminine, professional, stylish and strong? Great question! Let’s break it down based on Gina’s look:

It’s no secret that most work looks for women are founded in menswear, but what separates you from the guys is your ability to don a dress without compromising your power and authority.

We loved this Narciso Rodriguez dress for Gina because it was modest and strong but still made a fashionable statement. First off, the structured fabric and the color-blocking did amazing things for her silhouette. Grey is a classic business color, commonly found in suiting, but this soft palette of grey and white helped to keep things more feminine. It was also the inspo for the accessories that pulled it together.

There’s nothing more chic or feminine than a strand of pearl, but these aren’t your Grandma’s pearls ladies!  These beauties are updated and modern, and they worked perfectly with the graphic simplicity of the dress. 

If you’ve been reading along for the last few months, then you know that Gina and I enjoy a good Choo—it’s a comfort-meets-style thing. We found these grey and white python strappy Jimmy Choo sandals a few days before taking off to Vegas and simultaneously exclaimed, “Yes please!” before she even strapped them on. 

The grey and white texture was summery and chic, and the gold metallic heel added just the right amount of unexpected sexiness. Strappy heels always look strong because they’re actually inspired by gladiator sandals, go figure. 

What I loved about this outfit were all the contrasts. The clean lines of the dress, the fashionable femininity of the necklace and the edgy texture of the shoe. The whole look came together beautifully for a glamorous work-meets-play scenario that was just right for a busy day in Las Vegas.
