Every October, a former professor of mine (a breast cancer survivor) hosts a house party/fundraiser for Komen for the Cure. This year, she asked me for a cocktail that was “pink and fruity,” but didn’t use the too-sweet-to-handle p.i.n.k. vodka that most cocktails employ. So, if you’re planning to have or attend a breast cancer awareness event, this cocktail is the perfect libation.
Asos Pleated Midi-Dress (Asos, $74)
In keeping with the theme of the week, the dress is under $75. It’s also the perfect layering piece for Fall. Add a belt. Wear it with tights. Put on a cardigan or a blazer. Wear it under a sweater so that you can just see the skirt. Or glam it up with a sequin sash and drop earrings. Dealer’s choice.
