I have been working with the lovely team at Nicole Miller as of late, who introduced me to Nicole Miller Artelier.  When they sent this dress over, I wasn't sure my 5'2" self could pull it off, but the print was so beautiful and the fabric ( "powernet fabric" ) was something I have never seen or felt before. I called the team who told me it is meant to sculpt the body- and that is when I decided to try it for a day of meetings. I'm an artist and I don't have any other dresses like this in my closet. It's sleek, fitted, and somehow very sexy even though it reaches my knees. I paired it with black sandals, an orange chain clutch they made for me years ago (I just thought it complimented the pattern well) and then added a Lulu Frost necklace, so it would feel more fun than corporate. I added some red lipstick for extra "power". Could this dress be the reason my meetings went so well? Most likely.
