Come play! – #RaiseTheMacallan

Have you received your invite yet for the private event tasting by The Macallan?!  If not register here quick as spaces fill up!  I’ve been to a couple of these fabulous events but I must say my favorite one thus far was the #MacallanSXSW event in 2013 – these photos don’t do it justice but think yacht on Lake Travis, beautiful people, and of course an exclusive look into Single Malt Scotch Whisky.  I must admit that before then I simply was unaware of the different ways that this fine spirit could be prepared, but I was really impressed with what I learned during the event and the actual presentation in itself.  Informative and delicious all at once.

 Cheers! #RaiseTheMacallan

Death by Sexy Does SXSW

So I’m still daydreaming (ok drooling) over the Death by Sexy styles from last month’s #SipStyleSocialize but NOW I’m even more pumped for their fun Spring numbers that I’m getting ready to rock for SXSW 2015!! Think edgy, chic, and of course sexy.  As per usual Miss Andi has to force me out of my comfort zone when it comes to the “sexy” pieces, but given that I’ve trusted her opinion for three years now I know she’ll do me right. I’m pretty much in love with everything at the downtown DxS HQ at the moment but these little numbers caught my eye…


That “Sofia” Tribal dress is insane and you really can’t ever go wrong with pugs so, there’s that. The “Anastasia” Festival Dress is everything – practically perfect in every way. 

Perfect example of the DxS influence on my style – rompers. Love them on everyone else (seriously everyone looks so cute in rompers besides me what the heck?!?); hate them on me. In the last 30 days of life though the DxS ladies have made it their duty to make rompers work for me. We’ll see how this plays out but if Andi can make this fiery piece work for me, I’m confident she’ll get rompers to happen. 

At first look I thought there was NO chance I could rock this (waayyy out of my comfort zone) but once Andi styled & jeweled me up… and ok yes after a couple cocktails… I felt transformed into this whole new sexified biotch that could walk that runway just as fab as the models could.  In reality it’d be more like SJP’s runway walk circa 2001 on SATC’s “The Real Me” but like I said, cocktails were a-flowin so que the imagination. (…Fast forward 3 hours I’m back in my fuzzy socks and sports bra but that’s neither here nor there…) 

Needless to say regardless of the event my go-to is always Death by Sexy because I can always find the perfect piece and without fail, every.single.time I get the “I LOOOVE your boots (top…dress…necklace)!!! WHERE did you get it?!?” — oh this? DxS dahling. 😉

Some of my favs:
