I had the opportunity to experience two colleges as an undergraduate, so I get to attend two homecomings again this year. Yesterday, I headed back to where I spent my freshman and sophomore year for Winston Salem State University's homecoming. I met up with close friends to party and enjoy the festivities. I attended a day party at Club Therapy in downtown Winston Salem. Of course, we were fashionably late and only partied for 30 minutes before it was over. I wasn't too happy about that, but got to see tons of familiar faces. I wore a Forever bodycon skirt, a simple white scoop neck t-shirt, and a dove patterned blazer from Forever 21+. I'm always overdressed, but overdressing is my theme. My plans were to head back home to Greensboro, but I was heavily persuaded to attend the COLORS party held at the Lawrence Joel Veterans Memorial Coliseum. It had to be a big deal if the event was being held at a coliseum and a rumored of 1,000 presales sold. This bold look was heavily inspired from the 2011 Emmy Awards where tons of ladies rocked red gowns. My peplum dress, gifted by My Empiricist, was the perfect fit and super comfortable. Another red carpet inspired piece - turquoise jewels - completed my look. I received so many compliments on my Jibby Jewels necklace throughout the night. Keeping with the red theme, I sported a red MAC lip. I'm not much of a necklace girl, but the chunkier and bolder the better. The party was the perfect end to the weekend. This was just a pregame for the Greatest Homecoming on Earth -North Carolina A&T State University.
