We love the sound of clinking champagne glasses, the midnight kiss, and the fabulous glittering cocktail dresses.

As simple as it is elegant, the white Russian is the quintessential after dinner dessert drink. We were inspired by this snow-hued favorite to create a darling ensemble thats perfect for your next holiday party. The Unique Vintage Roman Holiday Ivory Scalloped Swing Dress is a showstopper when paired with bold accessories like the Red Lady Lux Kiss Lock Bag and the Red Satin T-Strap Cutie Pie Heels. Finish the look with a pair of demure earrings like the Black Flower Retrolite Earrings and the Ruby Leopard Trim Smart Screen Gloves for a touch of cozy.
The White Russian

- 1 ounce vodka

Here at UV we love a good cocktail, but what we love even more is a fabulous ensemble inspired by one of our favorite classic libations, the dirty martini. We paired the oh-so lovely Green Martini Print 1950s Flare Dress with the Pinup Girl Black Milena Grosgrain Evening Purse and the Black Strappy Domina Heels. Finish your retro look with a pair of deco inspired Nude Swarovski Crystal Fan Earrings by Tarina Tarantino. Finally, pour yourself something dirty!
