Happy Hour: Dreaming of Summer
Jan 18, 2013
I am so over winter. And the sad part is, it hasn’t even gotten started in earnest yet. I’m not sure when I went from being a Montanan who thought temperatures in positive digits were a tropical heat wave, to a prissy East Coaster who shivers when it’s 45-degrees outside, but here I am.
Clearly, I’m dreaming of summer.
This cocktail, a combination of bourbon, thyme-simple syrup and blood orange sounds like the best of summer and winter mixed in a glass. And how gorgeous is that color? It reminds me of…
…this dress from DvF that has been haunting my dreams for a few days.
The sculpted neckline, the unexpected mix of colors and the bright skirt are truly crush-worthy. It’s certainly one-of-a-kind.
Finding something similar in a lower price point was not, NOT, easy. In fact, it proved impossible. So I chose to focus on the bright coral/orange color that drew my eye.
This fitted dress has a origami-folded peplum and comes in a brilliant orange-red. If you’re looking for a minidress, this coral sheath is pretty hot.
Like the color but want to rent not own? This Robert Rodriguez dress from Rent the Runway is fantastic.
