Tri-colored Confidence


“…what’s wrong with being, what’s wrong with being, what’s wrong with being confident?”

It was all glitz, glamour, and a gaggle of ‘who’s wearing who,’ during fashion’s biggest evening of the year; an evening that try as I may, I could not score an invitation to. But I did watch E’s Met Gala Red Carpet Special from my very own couch, and after staring googly-eyed as one celeb after the next walked that endless red carpet, I came to three rather strong conclusions. One; the collective interpretation of this year’s Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology theme, was metallics. Two; Demi Lovato killed it. Three; DEMI LOVATO KILLED IT.

So, back to that lyric at the very beginning…no, Demi, there is NOTHING wrong with being confident! The Confident singer stepped out for her first ever Met Ball, in custom Moschino by Jeremy Scott, and absolutely slaaaaayed. (Palms up emoji right here, if you will.) It was gorgeous, it was silk, it had silver hand embroidery, gold flourish detailing, and fit right in with the night’s edgy theme. And she had crazy jewelry going on. I’m talking a 12.5 carat diamond ring and 6 carat diamond earrings. (I’ll bet just one of those earrings would pay off my student loans…)

Hair and makeup department? Nailed it! Bronzed skin, a sexy, smokey eye, and nude lip did the whole ensemble justice. And in keeping with the futuristic theme everyone seemed to have going on, she kept her short, dark tresses slicked back. But most importantly, the girl in the silver, black, and gold dress, embodied IT. She wore that dress like the fierce female she is, and gave us confidence to its fullest extent.

Alrighty nurses; here it is. The budget friendly, and workplace appropriate version of Demi’s insane dress, is the Grey’s Anatomy Active 3-pocket scuba v-neck top. It’s got a steel grey base; hello silver sequins from Demi’s dress. It’s got clean black lines; hello black silk panels from Demi’s dress. And as far as that pop of ‘lemonade’ on the sleeves, I take creative liberty to liken it to the bold, gold bordering on Demi’s work of art. Pair it with a pair of black Grey’s Anatomy Active 3-pocket logo waist pants, and a sleek, off the face hairdo, and you’ll be working those hospital halls like the confident nurse you are!
