Happy Hour: Golden Globes and Gowns

Jan 11, 2013

Ladies, it’s time to bring the glamour.  This Sunday is the Golden Globes, the official start to awards season.  And as usual, I will be liveblogging the red carpet arrivals starting at 6:00PM EST.

 Technically, this is a wedding gown, but it’s pretty incredible, so it would probably be right at home on a red carpet.  I love the fitted bodice, the draping, the chiffon trim and, surprisingly enough, the giant bow. (I know, I’m shocked too.)

If you’re looking for a similar dress–Inauguration is right around the corner–this berry-colored gown has a flowing shape and decidedly smaller bow, and you can rent this modern one shoulder with tiny bow at the waist.

 

I searched the Interwebs for “Golden Globes cocktail” and turned up this tasty looking libation called a Wistful Winslet.  It contains Beefeater Gin, pink grapefruit juice, simple syrup and champagne.  I’d need to sub out the gin for vodka, but it still looks like a deliciously diverting way to spend a relaxed Sunday afternoon.

Have a safe and happy weekend, see you Sunday at 6:00PM.

Happy Hour

The Crowdstrike/Microsoft Meltdown forced me to take a few days off this weekend. No laptop. No billable hours. So we packed Sloane up for a visit to a local llama farm, stopped by the pool, went for coffee, etc. Few things are as funny as watching a 23-month old feed carrots to a ravenous rescue […]

Yes, it’s July 22nd, but there is a lot of living to do between now and the cooler weather. And given that three-digit temperatures are becoming shockingly common, you need something light. Enter the striped linen set. Wear it now, wear it next summer.
