Fashion To Sip And Wear This Spring – Cocktail Dress!

Four Fabulous Party Pairings!

I had lots of fun today pairing some of my favorite cocktails with gorgeous dresses. The cocktail recipes are from Godiva Spirits – each is fabulous and deserves a party of its own.  The dresses are from Piperlime, my go-to online site for fashion.    If time allowed, I would host four Springtime Soirees so that I could feature each signature cocktail and have a chance to wear each dress.  However, time and money will only allow me one party.

Should I host an “Haute and Steamy” evening soiree or a special “Parisian Breakfast”?  Help me decide which pairing to pick.  Let me know your favorite and comment below.
