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.

Sports and fashion are Allison's true passions. She grew up in the household of a professional athlete, and a family blessed with true athletic talent. She, on the other hand, must have been absent on the day that sport skills were passed out! Although, she does possess a zeal that most girls do not have for sports of all kinds, hockey has consumed her life in the most unexplainable way. Sports are such an integral part of who she is, and she is on journey of becoming a part of a professional sports organization. Growing up minutes from the Las Vegas Strip didn't leave Allison with many options for being a sports fan.Spending the majority of her summers on the East Coast, Allison became a fan of all things Boston, and her heart will always have a special place for the city (especially the Bruins). Allison currently is an employee of the Arizona Coyotes and falls more in love with the game each and every day.
