Foodie Fashion: Happy Hour Style

There are several things that my coworkers know about me: I take on those difficult customer service issues, I’m sarcastic, and I like my alcoholic beverages. Now, while I occasionally worry about the people I work with knowing I spend my free time drinking, most of them drink discounted sweet red wine, so I judge them just as much as they judge me.


Just in case anyone wonders where my loyalties lie, two years ago I was gifted one of my favorite dresses. Named the Too Much Fun Dress in Happy Hour, this dress is my basic essence.


Decorated with coup glasses, liqueur bottles, and wine, the pattern is busy enough so I can wear it to work without raising too many eyebrows and then ditch my blazer and wear it out to my favorite bars during its namesake happy hour.The cotton lining also makes it just heavy enough to wear in the winter if paired with some tights and a jacket. It’s one of my favorite dresses to wear all year round.


While the dress is no longer available, Modcloth has a whole host of foodie options for those who like dressing like a cupcake as much as they like eating them. Oh, and for those wondering what that purple worthy of a comic book is on my lips is, it’s my favorite Tarte lip paint called ‘YASSSS’, which has nothing to do with food, but is too fun to completely ignore. Now, I’m off to go make a cocktail, though I can guarantee you that since it’s my day off, I’ll be sipping it in my PJs, and not a dress like this. Cheers.
