With potato chips, of course!
Also, don’t be afraid to experiment with food pairings. Oysters and caviar are fantastic with champagne, and more casual foods like truffle fries, fried chicken and cheese are equally delicious with Champagne! Champagne loves oily, salty and fatty foods as they bring out the wine’s fruitiness and freshness, so foods like burgers, tacos, BBQ sauce, and lobster are exciting new pairings to try that champagne connoisseurs have been enjoying for years!
“How to Drink Champagne Like an Expert”
I pick relaxation…
Something luxurious and utterly touchable: Satchel: Forester Bag Janus Tourbe
I can’t say no to a Graphic T: Boy Meets Girl Classic Alice Tee
Flats for comfort with just a touch of edge: Gold D’orsay Flat
Easy, but incredibly sexy with the right styling: J.Crew Keeper Slim fit Shirt Dress
I spend an inordinate amount of time thinking on this. Possibly more than is healthy, but then, it’s my job and my passion: Fashion and the average girl. It’s about more than copying an unflattering runway look or walking into a boutique and leaving dressed like the mannequin in the window. The result of either is usually a lighter wallet and no concept of where or how to wear the new ensemble beyond Saturday night’s soiree.
In the long run, it’s about style. Style is about polish. You know it when you see it. It’s the extra effort, the smallest finishing touch that makes all the difference on the lady you find yourself staring at in the produce section.
It’s how you wear and style your clothes that make a difference. Not where you bought them or how much you paid. Whether it’s a sweatshirt or a winter coat, the magic is in the combination.
No matter your age or your budget, your aesthetic or your fashion icon (if you have one) that je ne sais quoi is ultimately attainable. It’s not about being super fashionable, it’s about looking your best and ultimately put together.
It’s easier to be that girl than you think.
