I have not started my hunt for dresses for the wedding party yet but LOVE that some of my girls are already looking for the perfect dresses. Today Jen sent me the link to LuluKate and I really liked the above dresses. I am excited because there is a boutique opening on November 11th in Seattle, Bella Bridesmaid, that will carry LuluKate!

Dame Lola's sign from her first storefront
Inside the show
Last Thursday, Friday and Saturday Dame Lola hosted her Fall / Holiday Trunk Show in the event space at Varsity Grill. Rebecca, owner of Dame Lola had an amazing event that was filled with gorgeous must have's! We had a fun time transforming the 8,000 sq ft event space into a boutique for 3 days. We constructed 6 dressing rooms out of pipe and drape and set the room with cozy seating, fashion magazines & sexy decor. Movies played on the 157 inch screen that sat center stage as a perfect mix of tunes put together by Rebecca played throughout the room. Dame Lola shoppers were treated to 1 on 1 appointments with Dame Lola girls, champagne cocktails & appetizers. My favorite lines were Gant & Doucette Duvall.

Last night Dulce Cupcakes hosted their Cupcakes & Cocktails event with us at Varsity Grill. Tonya and Sarah the owners & bakers of Dulce wanted a chance for their clients to sample Dulce's cupcake signature flavors and the new seasonal flavors they have to offer! My new favorite is the Pumpkin Spice cupcake. My job was to come up with 2 cupcake inspired martinis to go along with the event. Below are the yummy recipes for you to try.
1.25 oz Stoli Vanilla Vodka
1 0z Godiva White Chocolate Liqueur
2 oz. Chocolate Milk or Chocolate Soy Milk
Combine all ingredients in a martini shaker filled halfway with ice and shake until outside of shaker is frosty. Stain into a martini glass that has been rimmed with strawberry frosting & dipped in chocolate sprinkles.
2 oz Stoli Vanilla Vodka
2 oz Pineapple Juice
splash of grenadine
Combine Stoli Vanilla Vodka and pineapple juice in a martini shaker filled halfway with ice and shake until outside of shaker is frosty. Stain into a chilled martini glass and add a splash of grenadine. This martini tastes like a pineapple upside-down cake!

Last week I purchased this Fringe Scarf by Kersh - I bought it in charcoal grey. I bought it to keep warm on the plane (which it was perfect for) and know this is going to be a great go to piece this Fall. It is a great cotton & modal blend and has so many options!
