I don’t know about you, but I haven’t really had the need to be prepared to be cocktail-ready on any given weekend or weekday for that matter. Yes, the occasional holiday party may have called for it, but mostly what I did on the weekends or any special occasion, I didn’t have a dress code. Now that I am in California and starting to feel settled-in at work, the need to be cocktail-ready is much more prevalent with my new position. I am completely embracing it and what girl doesn’t like to have an excuse to get dressed up every now and again? I think I could get used to this! A few weekends back, I had to attend a charity event in San Diego, so naturally Brian and I made a little vacation of it. It was so fun and San Diego was beautiful (I can’t believe it is only a short drive from L.A.), plus I had an excuse to stock up on my cocktail attire. Lucky me.
