Happy Hour: Back in Black
Jan 21, 2011
As you know, I’m a big fan of the website Rent the Runway. Being able to rent cocktail and formal attire is so much more fiscally responsible for me than buying a new dress every time. And I love the large selection of stylish dresses and the great accessories. (If you’d like to join RTR, click here.)
I almost never wear black dresses to D.C. parties because Washingtonian women ALL wear black dresses, and I hate to fade into the sea of black. If you’re going to wear black, you should at least wear something interesting. And this dress, by Moschino, is definitely interesting.
I love the different textures in the fabric and the dramatic cowl neck. This dress will look great in photos, and it certainly makes a good impression. And if you need a chic cocktail to go with your chic LBD, I have just the thing, a berry-citrus recipe altered to my exact specifications.

The Blackened Berry
2 oz Vodka
2 sage leaves
1/4 oz fresh lime juice
3/4 oz black elderberry concentrate
1 oz pomegranate juice
Put all the ingredients in a shaker and, after shaking, strain into a cocktail glass.
It’s dark. It’s chic. And it’s perfectly delicious.
