Happy Hour Couture ~ How to Transition from Your Cube to Cocktails
/August 3, 2012
I dated a guy once who told me my legs were looking “cheesy” as I hopped into the car. “Uhh, what!?” I asked. “Ya, you know, they are like the color of cheesecake,” he replied. I cut him some slack considering English wasn’t his first language, but as a sidenote to guys; never use any dairy related adjectives to describe a woman’s legs. As pale as I am, I’ve discovered a few bronzing tricks that would definitely earn the gold medal in faux tanning. I’ll share my favorite ‘pasty concealing secrets’ and style suggestions in case you’re heading out in the middle of the summer on an impromptu date or last minute Happy Hour.
The Light Knight ~ Unless I apply my new fave Fake Bake liquid self-tanner throughout the summer, it’s almost impossible to get color in SF when I’m indoors 23/7. If you’ve ever spent all day in your batcube and your eyes struggle to re-adjust to the sun the moment you step out of the office, you know what I’m talking about. (Style Sidenote– The best solution if you’re feeling pasty is jumpsuits, maxi dresses and blazers.)
