Now for the main event: the NHL Awards Red Carpet.
This dress decision was a tough one, but the Badgley Mischka sheath that I ended up choosing was incredible. Whenever the opportunity arises that I get to dress up like this, I put way too much thought in, but it always ends up for the better.
Awards day is definitely more formal, especially if you will be interviewing on the red carpet. Cocktail-ish attire is preferred around this time.
I would always rather be overdressed than underdressed, and this was especially true in this case. Though our Editor-in-Chief gave me as much advice as possible (Thanks, Winter), there was still a lot of uncertainty, especially because it was my first Awards actually being credentialed.
It’s Vegas, and I feel like in Vegas, you can get away with a bit of sparkle. Of course, I went all out. This dress was such a fun piece and I am so happy with my decision.
I had originally been planning on going with a different pair of shoes, but changed my mind last minute (as we were pulling in to valet) to something that seemed more comfortable. Thank goodness I did, because there was a ton of standing around, and walking from one place to the next.
The Awards were an absolute blast. Though it was an exhausting couple of days, it was so worth it.
