Happy Hour: Thanksgiving in a Glass

This dress is so simple and ladylike.  It’s perfect for the Thanksgiving hostess who wants to inject a little Betty Draper into her holiday party.  I would add some gold bangles, a simple stud earring, and either a nude heel (yes, it’s okay for Fall) or a camel boot.
If you love pumpkin pie, you will love this pumpkin martini.  It’s smooth, and the perfect precursor to your turkey and cranberry sauce feast.  
1/2 oz cream liqueur
2 oz vanilla vodka
1/2 oz pumpkin liqueur 
1 tsp whipped cream
cinnamon stick for garnish (optional)
Pour the liqueur and vodka into a shaker filled with ice.
Shake well.
Add the pumpkin liqueur.
Shake again.
Strain into a chilled cocktail glass with a brown sugar rim (optional).
Top with a teaspoon of whipped cream (optional).
Garnish with a cinnamon stick (optional).

    Hi Belle,

    I need some advice. I need sweaters, stat! I'm freezing out there and I did not buy sweaters at the beginning of the season like everyone else. Can you suggest some cute looks to carry me through the winter? I would love something more warm/cozy than the belted long cardigan. ­čÖé
