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.

  • 3/4 ounce coffee liqueur 
  • 1 ounce vodka
