What’s the best cure-all after a serious holiday shopping sesh? A stellar, super-glam happy hour to refuel! If your gift buying expeditions take you to Rodeo Drive, make the trip to 208 Rodeo for some post-purchase R&R with a killer happy hour menu that's guaranteed to get you buzzed at this, well, buzzy spot. The Bev Hills resto’s post-work—or in our case post-shopping—options include oh-so-yummy bites (the mini ahi tuna sliders and truffled sweet potato fries are calling our name) plus affordable sips (Kir Royale or Cab for only $6), and the best people watching in the BH.
As for the ensemble—well we know you also want to get some once-overs (the good kind), too. Enter our 'tis the season outfit with separates you can wear to holiday party after holiday party. Think a sleek plum structured mini-dress paired with printed tights and black suede booties. Of course, no haute-drinking ensemble this time of year would be complete without some sparkle and shine, which is why this glittery statement necklace and peach polish with gold flakes, natch, add the extra festive touch. Now that you’re recharged and replenished, feel like hitting up a couple more shops?
