The First Impression
Today’s feature cocktail is The First Impression, inspired by the stylings of Latrice Monique Consulting, LLC. Her selected outfit is a yellow off-the-shoulder mermaid dress completed with a white chain necklace. The vibrancy of this style encouraged us to create a cocktail that was not only of bold colors, but also of bold flavors which include elderflower, rosemary and a hint of citrus.
When asked, stylist voiced that this outfit pick is a perfect day out or after hours ensemble that can also be worn as business casual for corporate setting. More fashion ideas, tips, and services can be found at latricemonique.net
