Happy Hour: Back to Work Week
Jan 3, 2014
Long sleeve work dresses are tough to find, but this color block dress from J.Crew is perfection. I love the mix of charcoal and pale blue. The thing I like most about this dress is that it’s unique enough to be worn its own.
Want a long sleeve color block dress that costs a bit less? It’s tough to gauge length on a model, but this tan and black Rebecca Minkoff is nice. This black and white Three Dots dress looks like it would be very slimming. And if you need something under-$50, this Corey Paige dress is a good choice.
Should you prefer something in a solid, I adore the folded details on this v-neck Ivy & Blu dress. (It’s a gorgeous Rebecca Taylor copy.) Also, don’t miss this black Isaac Mizrahi dress with a textured fabric.
Plus-size? Try this color block Calvin Klein dress or this v-neck Ralph Lauren sheath. Petite? The J.Crew dress above also comes in petites. Tall? This black and white Banana Republic dress is the best thing I found.
For many years, my cocktail of choice was a whiskey sour or a bourbon sour. The trouble is, most bars just use sour mix instead of fruit juices, which makes for a disgusting cough syrup-like cocktail. So this recipe for an updated whiskey sour from Food52 was a welcome addition to my recipe box.
Their New York Sour contains all the classic sour components–rye, lemon, simple syrup and a garnish–but this one adds something special, red wine. So if you love sours, but want to try something new, give this cocktail a try. It’s perfect for a post-holiday Monday evening.
