Dressing + Drinking

Two very, very fun updates today.  All revolving around dressing and drinking!

I'm so very excited ... because I just ditched my "clothing spending freeze" that I self-inflicted yesterday afternoon.  Yep, that's all it lasted.  But in my defense, I saw a dress pop up on Rue La La that I've been wanting for a while!

It's the Tart Collections High-Low Convertible Infinity Dress.  I know that's a mouthful.  Originally $257, Rue La La has it for $54.90. 

It can be worn a ton of different ways.  LOVE.

That one above is the very one I ordered.  The black color is just perfect for an upcoming trip we've got planned, but they have other great colors available, too.

Yes, that's all the same dress, just styled differently.  I can't wait to get this in the mail!
If you need an invitation to join Rue La La, here you go.

My friend Ashley shared her awesome lychee martini recipe with me, and I can attest that it's the best recipe for this cocktail that I've tasted yet.

FACT: I've tasted a lot of lychee martinis.

Pin It!

1 oz white cranberry juice
1 oz peach schnapps
2 oz lychee juice
1 oz vodka

Freeze 1-2 lychees in each martini glass to serve as decoration and keep your bevvie chilly.  Mix all ingredients together in a cocktail shaker, give it a good shake, and serve.

Some of you may not be familiar with lychees -- they are an Asian fruit, and oh so tasty!  I find mine in our grocery store (Harris Teeter) in the Asian foods area ... the very same place you'd find soy sauce, seaweed for sushi, and sticky rice.  You can also find them at Asian grocery stores if you have one of those in your area.

Ashley mentioned that next time, she may reduce the amount of lychee juice in the martini from 2oz to 1oz.  It just depends on whether you want it lighter and sweeter or less sweet and a little more, shall we say, potent.

Bottoms up!

  1. I have a Rugby dress like that but it's short. Love it!

  2. don't u just love the sample sale sites - ADDICTED!

  3. Love that dress! Think I may have to copy you on this one. My shopping hiatus goes until Easter, so mom may have to get it for me for my birthday.

  4. Ok that dress is AWESOME! I may just need that! Now if only I could figure all those ways out once I got it, but something tells me mine wouldn't look near as cute as the models ha!

  5. I love the dress! Can't wait to see how you style it :)


  6. I love that your "no-buy" edict lasted less than one day. I did that the other week until some Jack Rogers sandals were on sale on RueLaLa and since I have a beach vacay coming up, I had to have them. My shopping moratorium lasted about 2 days max. Oh well. I'm still glad I have the sandals, which fit perfectly.

    Cute dress!

  7. That dress is amazing! I may have to check that out.

    I'm hosting a big giveaway at my blog today. You should stop by to check it out:

  8. Love that dress! Would would we do without Rue La La?! I'm definitely going to have to make that lychee martini for a girls' night asap!

  9. The drink and the dress both look divine!

  10. I had to unsubscribe from all of my favorite shopping website e-mails in order to make it through my shopping hiatus, they were too tempting. That dress is amazing, though, completely worth lifting the shopping freeze!

  11. You totally scored on that dress! It will be perfect this Summer. I definitely need to check out my Rue La La emails more often!

  12. I had to stop getting Rue La La emails because I wanted to buy everything! That dress is going to look amazing on you!
