Happy Hour: A Golden Oscar Party

Feb 24, 2012

The Academy Awards are this Sunday, and if you’re having a party, you need an Oscar-themed cocktail.  I like Voli vodka because it’s low-calorie and still tastes good.  Call me crazy, but I’d rather eat my calories than drink them.  Here’s a delicious cocktail to keep your guests happy through a two hour red carpet and three hour-plus award show.

Golden Era Cocktail

1.5 oz Voli Orange and Vanilla Fusion Vodka

2 oz Lemonade

0.5 oz Agave Nectar

0.5 oz Pineapple Juice

Add ice and all the ingredients to a cocktail shaker and shake it like a Polaroid picture.  I mean vigorously.  You want a little froth.

Strain into a chilled martini glass or over ice in an old fashioned glass.  Garnish with an orange peel or a full slice if you prefer.

And what will I be wearing, while liveblogging the Oscar Red Carpet…

Octagonal Earrings (Kate Spade, $78)

I bought these earrings last weekend, and I have worn them every day since I bought them.  Which is funny because I don’t usually like drop earrings for every day.  I like the art deco feel and the black white palette, they’re a simple accessory that packs a bit of pop.

If you want something a bit more classic in a similar price point, Kate Spade also makes a lovely pair of square cut jewel drops in the same color palette.

And if you’re not doing anything on Sunday night, CHS will be celebrating the Oscar’s with our 3rd Annual Academy Awards Red Carpet Liveblog.  Tune in here at 5:30PM Eastern for gowns, glamour and a whole lot of hating on Ryan Seacrest. Dude, how hard is it to ask, “Who are you wearing?”

    I wish I could afford the other Kate Spade earrings you posted a link to… both are gorgeous!

    I love those earrings, but they remind me strongly of the 70's. Fashion certainly does make its loops, doesn't it?

Happy Hour: Atlantic Beach Pie

There are two kinds of people in this world: People who eat cake on their birthdays and people who don’t.  And some of the weirdos in the latter category (I said what I said) eat pie as an alternative.  So if you’re a “birthday pie” eater with a late summer celebration coming up, may I […]

The Find: Bright and Striped

For the past few years, the wardrobes of many influencers have tilted toward the beige and boring.  I’m all for a good basic, but staple pieces can only take you so far.  Sometimes, you need to wear something that has a little something extra, and this sale-priced tee certainly does.
