15. Sheer Seduction

It’s Thursday night and the guy you met last week wants to hang. You had a great first date in the beginning of the week but now want to test his limitations for fun. Great, you invite him to your apartment for your annual champagne Thursday celebrations with your roommates and friends.  Champagne, red solo cups and vodka. You used to give your friends the benefit of the doubt by serving the champagne in actual champagne glasses, but after a couple were broken, it’s back to plastic. Growing up doesn’t exist to everyone turns 30 for your crew.

The champagne is bought, your bank account is depleted, and now attention is moved to your outfit. If you ever look in a Nooners closet, its array of nior in the best textures. The sheer seduction shirts are no different because they add another element to the mix. They’re the button down, shirt, or tee when you want to tease your main squeeze with your fashion forward undertones.  It shows enough but covers just the right amount.  It’s an essential that says you want this? That’s what I thought.

STYLE ADVICE: 5 Fashionable Drinks to Adopt

Don’t be naïve to think that people don’t judge you on your drink order.  I mean I’m judging you and let’s face it people have something to say about everyone and everything. I know, I know, judgey woogie was a bear. I don’t really know what the nursery rhyme actually means but it always reminds me about that one Sex and the City episode. Wait, wait, wait where was I going with this? Oh yes. Your drink choice is just like a pair of shoes and no one should be caught dead in something dated or lame. Here’s 5 types of drinks its okay to order when out on the town.

• Vodka tonic – Simple and classic with a bad girl edge.  Kate Moss drinks it so you know its cool.

• Vodka Gimlet – Like a vodka tonic but with a sour favor. It’s for those people who complain that vodka tonic taste like nothing (hello that’s the point).

• Pomegranate Martini – The new “it” martini once every loser started drinking cosmopolitans. If you need to drink one, than opt for this one instead of the later.

• Fresquita – Andy Cohen’s new favorite drink. We love everything Andy Cohen does, from his cute jew boy smile to the housewives, WWHL and now his drink choice. If your didn’t know, its just tequila (patron please) and fresca.

•  Tom Collins – Vintage and hip.

Of course, every Nooner loves champagne in all courses of life. Its great in the morning, lunch, dinner, post dinner, pregame, dancing on a table, you name it and its great. The same thing goes for Wine. Any type really, I prefer Pinot Grigio but the fact of the matter is that I can slug down anything and that’s the Nooner way.

Also, made to order specialty drinks with flare are great and receive a check plus in our book. We love drinks made with love, mainly because alcohol has had our back since we can remember (well, except for last weekend and then that time last month).

Don’t Dare to Drink These 4 Cocktails

• Shirley Temple – Your not cute or youthful because you drink this, your probably annoying.

• Long Island Ice Tea – I loved LI ice teas when I was in college but it’s embarrassing to order once out. Exception: Long islands are okay to drink on when its summer, during the day.

• Morning Drinks at Night – Its okay to drink a mimosa or bloody mary for brunch but not okay to drink past 5pm. Seriously, they may be good but it just doesn’t make sense.

• Apple Martini – Its dated, too 90s and not in a good way.

STYLE ADVICE: Day Off Day Clothes

Don’t we all love a long weekend? Although everyday is a long weekend for us, we love when everyone can enjoy as well.  For some, it’s another day to brunch or another day to read in the park but Nooners have another fantasy for a Monday off. Today is the perfect chance to finally stay in bed for the whole day with your man while the only thing you will be consuming will be champagne and each other. Actions like this don’t involve clothing but every Nooner should have the necessary loungewear.

The cool knit pant for when the champagne runs out and you need to run to the liquor store.  Fashionable to pair with heels like Carrie Bradshaw or slouchy cool with converse.

The nightshirt, so at least you can have something covering yourself when the Chinese food is delivered.

The silk robe is key for seducing or perfect for lounging on the couch with your man. It may even help your effort in trying to convince him that the Housewives of Beverly Hills is actually a good show.

The luxe t- shirt is perfect for snuggle time and also easy transferable to be apart of your everyday wear.

Together all these pieces are perfect for your survival of the four day weekend. The other necessities you can find at your local drug store.
