Cocktails Worth an Oscar– or an Oscar Mixing with Fabulous Tastes Courtesy of Robert Lambert!

It’s going to be Independent Spirit Awards and Oscar Sunday before you know it. So let’s get the party started a bit early here.
At least to give you some cocktails in case you took my suggestion on Sunday to WATCH some movies. If not, you can put together an amazing array of cocktails for a party. Give each guest a specific movie and give them a cocktail tied to that movie (like the ones I have listed below) and have them bring the ingredients. This doesn’t require a ton of spirits given the number of movies, so most cocktails only have to be a total of a couple of ounces. We don’t want you driving home impaired!!

While spring and summer might not seem like a time for wearing a “little black dress” (otherwise known as LBD), there are always events were a great LBD is useful to have in the closet and often it’s the fall-back position in case the outfit doesn’t work for a specific event. What’s a girl to do when she needs to hunt down a great LBD?
Turn to me, a stylist who has worked with celebrities and consumers about how to tune up their wardrobe. Who couldn’t use a new LBD in their wardrobe? I have 3 that are basics and work well for any event but I saw these dresses and thought that they would be a great fit for just about anyone. Plus given the type of dresses I am showing here- it’s a smart move to buy them now because it seems like they will be a hot ticket later on (plus you have an opportunity to share your fashion savvy early).
