 This was probably the best era for this brand.

I do not normally post on the weekends due to my desperate need of digital downtime, and the feeling that whatever I have to say can surely wait until normal business hours, but there is a bit of a time sensitive twist here, so I am coming to you on a Sunday evening.  In this post I am wearing one of my mom's old Carole Little for St. Tropez West satin safari shirts, it's pretty fantastic, and in suprisingly great condition (stay tuned, I have one in rust as well!). In my hand I am holding a cocktail called a 'French 75', poplularized at the famed Stork Club, and customized this past Friday evening by renowned mixologist, and all around fantastic person, Prairie Rose Free. (homemade hibisuc syrup anyone!?) The event was a wonderful cocktail party hosted by dear friends,  Prairie's blog (Bit By a Fox) has been nominated as one of the top cocktails blogs in the country by Savuer magazine, (one of my favortites!)  and I think she deserves the win.  If you feel thus inclined (and trust me you should!) please cast your vote at the link below:
