{outfit} Shaken Not Stirred

The main reason I bought this crop top, first seen here, was to wear it with these jeans. I wore this to a martini making class Lydia hosted at Polpo in Greenwich. I didn't want to dress up super crazy so I figured adding a blazer and heels to my outfit made it appropriate for the occasion. I know the title says shaken, not stirred, but our bartender teacher told us you should never shake your martinis, no matter what James Bond says. My Dad disagreed when I told him, but since I don't generally drink martinis it doesn't matter to me. I do have to say, I think I made a pretty mean drink, I was a pro at using the strainer from Absolut. Check out photos from the event over at Lydia's blog!

At the end of the party we were given adorable pineapple pins. Absolut have chosen the pineapple because it represents hospitality and they want the world to know that they are devoted to serving as best they can.  To go a step further, they've a created copper Pineapple drinking vessel that has been exclusive to certain bars for quite some time. They will start selling them soon (for $85) and for every pineapple sold they will provide water for a month for one family in need.  (By purchasing Absolut Elyx you provide water for one week.)

(I was not asked to post about this, but I love that they support a great cause)

Top: Zara, Blazer: Elie Tahari (Coco's on the Green), Jeans: J Brand 'high rise Maria' (Gilt), Heels: Prada (The Real Real)

  1. That sounds like a dream event (martinis are my drink of choice). And I think that top worked pretty perfectly for this.

  3. Such a fun event and I think that your top is gorgeous! I always thought martinis were supposed to be shaken I guess that must've come from the James Bond movies!

  4. Your crop top works perfectly with the high waisted jeans! :)

    I never knew the company did so much for charity, definitely a great cause so thank you for sharing! The little pineapple pin is cute too :)
