Day to Night Glam with Mel B

by Sherria

Former Spice Girl, Melanie Brown, attended Gotham Hall in New York City last week for the Escape To Total Awards event and private concert. Noticeably thinner after giving birth in September, Melanie wore two glamourous gowns. The top portion of the cream gown resembles a sheath dress and the criss cross black dress worn on the red carpet was elegant and sleek. Inspired by both looks, I put together two sets that could be worn in the workplace as well as a night on the town.

In the Office:

I usually wear brightly colored jewelry with solid neutral colored dresses.

Cream & Colors
Midnight Glamour:
Use faux eyelashes and designer perfume to feel like a superstar the entire night!
