JD and I both had the day off last Thursday as previously mentioned. We took advantage of this rare occurrence just before the cold snap by going to brunch and doing a little bitters shopping before heading over to Grand Central for oysters and our little meet up. Being the cocktail enthusiasts we are, I'm a bit embarrassed to admit that I had absolutely no idea there were so many different kinds of bitters out there. There was an entire wall to sample, not an exaggeration. We ended up with lavender and chocolate, mostly because I decided I wanted to mix them both together with whiskey in a single drink. Let me tell you, it was good. This is what I wore, in case you were wondering. I've had this ASOS bird top for years (2010 I think). It was one of those things I couldn't stop thinking about once I saw it. I used to wear it over a black skirt with a lace trim, belted at the waist, with knee high boots. I felt like Emily from The Devil Wears Prada whenever I wore it, that and this green dress... come to think of it maybe it was just those boots. Maybe I should start wearing them again. My 2015 take on this top is much more simple. Black pants and ankle boots do just fine.

  5. What a fun little afternoon! I'd love to have a day off during the week to go to brunch and a little cocktail sampling! I honestly didn't know there were that many bitters out there either. Do you always mix up your own cocktails or do you just make recipes you find at home?

  7. I love the pattern on your top so much - you really can't tell it's birds unless you look closely! I need to start trying out some different bitters.. when I still lived in the city, I loved hitting up bars that had special flavors, but now that I'm in the suburbs, I'm pretty much not getting anything crazy unless I mix it up at home!

  11. Confession - I know absolutely nothing about bitters. I just drink the drinks, I don't make them. But it sounds interesting!

  12. Such a cute top! I love the bird print! And your black coat is so feminine and timeless...perfect for this never-ending winter! That sounds like such a fun night out. I've never ventured into the Oyster Bar in Grand Central so now you have me intrigued. And a lavender and chocolate cocktail sounds divine!
