Happy Hour: Christmas Cocktails


While browsing Pinterest, I found a link to Cosmopolitan’s selection of 15 Christmas Cocktails.  The one above is called The Mistletoe and contains Svedka cherry vodka, tonic water, a splash of sour mix and a rosemary and cherry garnish.  Plus, it has a fun name.

Whether you’re having a fancy holiday dinner or you’re just looking for a warm, chocolate cocktail to drink on Christmas morning, check out Cosmo’s list and find the libation that suits your plans.


Laundry by Shelli Segal Block Lace Sheath Dress ($225)

How phenomenal is this dress?  I love the lace accents on the shoulders and sides.  Need a similar look for less?  Single has a grey cap-sleeve dress and an ivory sleeveless dress with black lace accents.

Also check out this Ann Taylor rose-colored halter dress with black lace print (50%-off Ann Taylor), and this all-white lace mini-dress from Cameo.  And if you’re looking for long sleeves, this DvF dress is one of the most beautiful cocktail dresses that I have ever seen.

Prefer a full lace dress?  This backless lace dress from Alice + Olivia is pretty special.  I adore the color of this raspberry boatneck Ralph Lauren dress.  Arianna Papell also makes the best mid-price lace dresses, I like this pleated black dress with scroll lace and this scalloped lace dress in dark teal.

Need something under-$100?  I like this one-shoulder white lace dress from Topshop and this mixed media lace sheath from Kohl’s.

Plus-size? Have a look at this white INC lace dress and this Betsy & Adam fit-and-flare dress.  Petite? Try this gilded lace yoke dress from LOFT and this Tadashi Shoji dress that comes in many colors.  Tall?  L’Wren Scott’s collection for Banana Republic has a lovely lace dress.

    How would you style this white dress for winter? I have a similar dress for new years – black opaque tights with black heels feels harsh with the soft lace.
