How to stay tidy in the silly season

Peta Serras

by Peta Serras

It’s called the silly season for a reason babe, the drinks are flowing and it’s easy to get a little untidy and tarty aka the unclassy drunk. Given how easy it is for moments to remain permanent on social media, I thought I’d share with you my list on staying classy when you’ve had a few too many.

Some of these start prior to the event and are good to keep in mind if you know you will have a rather large evening. Tidy babes are classy babes!

This post is specifically for babes who are old enough to order and consume booze. If that’s not you then stay tuned for some more posts this week that I know you will LOVE! x

Choose your lippy wisely

One tell tale sign of a woman who has had a few too many is when her lipstick application is up to her nose. I recommend avoiding dark colours and stick to shades where it doesn’t matter if you make a little bit of a mess. Plus kissing and red lipstick is never a good idea.

Dark colours for clothing are best

There’s been many situations where an enthusiastic wave to a cute boy across the room has resulted in half my drink down my shirt. For that fact, I will never wear whites or lights out – I stick to dark. Good to take note if you’re a fan of clubbing – You can’t be responsible for others having a steady drink hand!

Don’t wear outfits where body parts could make a cameo

To many times have I been out and noticed someone hasn’t worn any panties out. And not because their was no VPL. Because she fell over and decided to show the bar, whoops girlfriend! It’s a great idea to wear an outfit you don’t have to worry about taking off to go to the bathroom or flashing a body part that would make your grandma cranky.

Make an entrance not a Facebook video worthy exit

There’s nothing tasteful about a girl who arrived at the party quietly who then needs to be kicked out because she sculled a litre of vodka and threw up into a vintage crystal vase and peed on the bar. Arrive fabulously in style. And leave discretely.

Leave your Facebook comments and text messages until the next day

Your boyfriend dumped you for Tarty Tina who can’t keep her nipples in her shirt? Leave it off Facebook. If you need to write something, use the notes in your phone. The next day of your morning espresso, you have permission to evaluate and post with a slightly clearer head.

Wear shoes that won’t need to come off

If you struggle walking in your new heels and need to hold onto someones arm, this is never a good idea with a drink in you. Flats for you babe OR wear shoes that don’t kill your feet. If your friends with me, I have a shoes on policy. You know a lady has had a few too many when she’s whipped her shoes off at the races. We know what comes next – your knickers.

Pick your company wisely

We all have that one friend who tops up our wine when we aren’t looking, encourages table dancing and urges you to go home with Pedro your local barista. Stay away! OR if you’re smart, just carry around a glass of champagne that you have no intentions of drinking and insist she’s already filled you up 5 times and you have plans for later 😉

Stick to top shel

No one feels good when they’re filled with preservatives, cheap booze or sugary mixers. My favourite drink is an Old Fashioned, Martini or a premium spirit over ice. If you stick to top shelf, you’ll either be too low in funds to buy more thus leaving a classy, yet an empty pocketed babe and you’ll also avoid the nasty hangover thats associated with cheap booze.
