Happy Hour: Embrace the Classics

Black Halo Bryson Square Neck Sheath ($345)

This dress is incredible.  It’s classic, sophisticated, and sexy at the same time.  It feels very Audrey Hepburn in Sabrina to me.  It also comes in lipstick red.

Looking for a similar dress that costs a bit less?  This French Connection Dress from Lord & Taylor is a sleek choice.  And while I’ve never purchased anything from Boohoo, they offer a similar dress for just $16.

For something a bit more fun, this dress from Express mixes some of the elements of the Black Halo dress in a youthful way.  And don’t miss this Ann Taylor dress with a structure bow in the back (also in petite).

Plus-size? This Calvin Klein dress is a lovely choice.

For me, The Manhattan is a cocktail that perfectly blends the feminine and masculine.  It’s a pretty cocktail with bite.  Food and Wine has a recipe for the classic cocktail that blends rye, sweet vermouth, bitters, and (of course) a cherry garnish.

You can also buy pre-made Manhattan mixes.  I like the 36th Vote barreled Manhattan from High West.  It’s an easy way to have an evening cocktail without the work.

Happy Hour

    I only just now saw this post but I gasped when I saw that dress. It is stunning. The red pumps they have on the model make it even better.

    Classics are classic for a reason, after all.
