Hot Couture is the New Haute Couture

Hot Couture is the New Haute Couture
Yesterday the New York Times profiled Rent the Runway, dubbed "A Netflix model for haute couture." A couple of thoughts:

1. As if to minimize skepticism about how a frequently mailed dress will hold up over time, co-founder Jennifer Hyman (left) models a dress that has been clearly run over by a FedEx truck and still looks great!

2. Why rent designer dresses when Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan have lightly secured houses packed with totally free dresses?

POURCAST

Sidecar

  • 2 parts Germain-Robin Craft Method brandy
  • 1 part Cointreau
  • 1 part fresh lemon juice

Lightly shake with ice, then pour into a ice-filled rocks glass. Based on your tastes, brandy choice, and strength of the lemon juice, you should adjust the Cointreau and lemon juice to find proper balance.
