Ombre-Inspired Cocktail

Bottle Brush Cocktail

Remember earlier when we wrote about some of our friend’s favorite things and one of the was “Bottle Brush Trees”? Well, don’t mind me as they’ve become one of my favorite things now as well! Here’s the photo of Ricci’s stunning display:

Those ombre trees are just too wonderful. While you shop and / or decorate your own tableau, consider creating a custom cocktail to sip merrily. More below!

Party Clothes Can Be So B(L)inding

Sparkling!

We tend to lean toward the “more is more and less is a bore” mentality (Thanks, Iris!). At a recent art museum gala, here’s an outfit that fit the theme and became unexpectedly versatile:

A Rainbow Sequin Bomber Jacket paired with black pants and a back t-shirt. So easy! So simple! So fancy that people stopped me all night asking about it. I loaned it to a friend who wore it to The Emmy’s and she looked SO COOL. After, she donned it in a play called “Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind.” A fitting jacket for a fitting title. For $36, this is probably the best find on Amazon.

I loved the way Sarah (above) paired it with a black-and-white striped shirt, that I ended up GIVING HER THE JACKET and then buying another one for me, just in time to get sparkly for the Spooky Symphony.

I don’t remember where I purchased my Beetlejuice-inspired striped shirt, but here are some similar blouses on Amazon. To complete the outfit, of course you should consider some eye-blindingly bright (but sensible) shoes:

What are some of your go-to party clothes trends? And are you able to transfer them to daily wear after? Because that’s a win-win in our book! Pair the sequin bomber with jeans and you’re still the star of the show!
