Happy Hour: Cocktail on the Cheap

Sep 26, 2014

Just because you can’t (or don’t want to) pay for the good stuff, doesn’t mean you can’t have on awesome cocktail party.  Cosmopolitan Magazine has ideas for how to use a cheap box of wine.  My favorite is the Muddled Melon, a mix of rose, chopped melon and lime, garnished with fresh mint.

Bailey Blue Off-Shoulder Dress ($42)

A little creativity can spruce up a box of cheap wine, and lovely dresses can be had for under-$50.  This Bailey dress is structured and modern.  It also defines the waist beautifully.

Thie slinky, black H&M dress is a great $25 option.  I love this draped DKNY dress.  And this Marni Weston dress has a classic, Issa feel to me.

Plus-size? This BB Dakota dress with lace insets is lovely.  Petite? This red dress with an asymmetric neckline is awesome.

Happy Hour

    What a great price for that dress! Usually I find Nordies to be a bit high on the price scale, so this is refreshing!
