The halter neckline and accordion pleats of this sea blue dress give it a strong vintage vibe. Its high waist and full skirt provide the opportunity for lots of high-quality twirling on the dance floor.
In L.A., where cocktail dresses pass for day wear and executives wear flip-flops to board meetings, this soup follows suit dressed up with a dollop of caviar or modestly sipped from a coffee cup. Down-to-earth and stylish at the same time, cauliflower and potato are pureed into a smooth, winter-white soup. Thickened with potatoes and just a bit of cream, the mouthfeel is silky without tasting too rich. Creamed Cauliflower Soup doubles as a luxurious sauce pooled under seared scallops. Serve with smoked salmon, watercress salad or crusty French bread.
