Cheers to the New Year!


Christmas Playlist

Wednesday, December 24, 2014

We cannot believe that tomorrow is Christmas! 

To help celebrate we have perfected our list of favorite holiday jams to liven up your morning with the fam or spruce up any holiday party. Sticking to mostly classics as there’s nothing quite like a little Frank Sinatra – and adding in some new hits we’re sure you’ll enjoy, take a listen and let us know what you think or what we’re missing! 

Without further ado... 

1. Mariah Carey - All I Want For Christmas Is You 

2. Dean Martin - Let it Snow!

3. Bobby Helms – Jingle Bell Rock (shoutout to Mean Girls!) 

4. Eartha Kitt – Santa Baby 
Such a sassy classic ;) 

5. Ariana Grande - Santa Tell Me

6. Frank Sinatra – Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas 

7. Wham! - Last Christmas

8. Andy Williams - It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year

9. Pentatonix - Winter Wonderland/Don’t Worry Be Happy
They have a bunch of beautiful a cappella versions of Christmas favorites but we thought this mix was too fun to pass up! 

10. Idina Menzel & Michael Bublé - Baby It's Cold Outside (attach music video)
We love Idina Menzel’s take on this classic and the music video is beyond adorable! Not to mention this will be a hit with the little one’s if they liked the movie Frozen. 

Whether you’ve been Naughty or Nice we hope you enjoy your holidays and the music and cheer that goes along with them! 

Wishing you all the Merriest of the Merry and the best to you and yours ☺ 

Xo- Sassy Girls   

P.S. We’ll reopen at 10am the day after Christmas!

Happy Thanksgiving from Sassy Shortcake Boutique

Happy Thanksgiving

Thursday, November 27, 2014

From our table to yours -- we would like to wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving!

So grateful for each and every one of you.


Thanksgiving Eve

Wednesday, November 26, 2014

It's the night before Thanksgiving and all through the house... just teasing, we know tonight all the "creatures" will definitely be stirring! Hopefully you are all prepared for the big meal ahead of you tomorrow and to help you sit back and wait for it we thought we'd give you some ideas on how to celebrate the much-needed break.

Thanksgiving Eve is one of the biggest nights to go out nationwide so with that in mind we are bringing you some outfit inspo and some warm cocktails to get the night going!

First the drinks --- whether you want to keep it organic before the feasting tomorrow or just lay it on thick this break, and hey, no judgement either way ;) we have two ideas that sound simply to die for.

Number 1: Sakara Life Hot Apple Pie Cocktail 

  • 3/4 cup hot organic apple cider 
  • 1 oz spiced rum
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • dollop of coconut cream (or any dairy free whipped cream)
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup

Once you have the essentials, its quite simple to make. Just heat the apple cider in a pan on low heat. Add cinnamon and remove from heat once it begins to boil. Pour into mug over 1oz of spiced rum and stir. Add as much whip cream as you want! 

The girls at Sakara like to keep everything very healthy and if it tastes good too, why not! 

This second option we think is a little more mouth watering...

Ingredients: (makes 4 servings)
  • 4 thick-cut slices of bacon
  • 1/2 teaspoon corn starch
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • pinch kosher salt
  • 3 cups whole milk
  • 4 ounces milk chocolate chips
  • 4 ounces bittersweet chocolate chips
  • 4 ounces Frangelico
  • 4 ounces bourbon
  • whipped cream and chopped toasted hazelnuts for garnish

This has more going on but is just as easy! Cook bacon until crisp, pour fat into a bowl and stir in corn starch. Next, for the hot cocoa - in medium saucepan, stir cocoa with sugar and salt. Stir in bacon fat/corn starch mixture, milk, milk chocolate, and bittersweet chocolate. While stirring constantly, heat over medium heat until chocolate is melted and mixture is hot. Add Frangelico and bourbon. Pour into individual serving cups. Top with whipped cream, chopped toasted hazelnuts, and a strip of bacon. Serve immediately! 

Now if those two do not warm you up and get you ready for the night we don't know what will! 

Except maybe these pants...

Go bold in navy sequins and a cute jacket with this look! Dress it up or down with accessories, either way you will be receiving many compliments, prompting everyone you run into to wonder what you've been up to this year. 

Visit the Charleston store at 237 King Street or shop online this Friday where we will be having Black Friday deals and steals all day... 

All in all, we at Sassy Shortcake hope that you have the best Thanksgiving holiday with your friends and family. Stay safe, have fun, and remember to keep tuning in for more Sassy Girl news headed your way! 

P.S. Need a game for the adult crowd while the birds in the oven? Check this out to warm up for the meal!

It's Turkey Time

Thursday, November 20, 2014

Thanksgiving is just a week away!  From now until the big Turkey day we will be filling you with all the best Thanksgiving how to's from our families and of course a few pointers from the pro's. 

To start us off we thought we'd get down to business with said turkey.  Here are a few classic recipes from the women who certainly know best when it comes to the kitchen...

and last but certainly not least...

All three recipes sound sublime to us...what do you think?  The updated version of Julia Child's recipe takes the least amount of time, and Ina's seems the easiest but it's all up to you!

Have any recipes you'd like to share?  For turkey or sides? Email us for a chance to have them featured in an upcoming blog post!  More Thanksgiving goodies to come your way!  Gobble gobble...

Halloween Costume Inspiration

Thursday, October 30, 2014

As we're sure you all are aware (or so we hope!), it's Halloween tomorrow! 
Some of us here at Sassy Shortcake have been procrastinating with our costume choices and have 
been searching all day for last minute ideas...   
Naturally we decided Pinterest would be our best bet for some much needed inspo!  
Check out what we found:

Going off of these we think with a little face paint and the help of a few key pieces from the Boutique we could get creative with it ~ The perfect Day and Night duo! 

Day features our Hepburn dress 

Night features our City Lights Romper 

We grabbed some flowers and star stickers from Michaels to pair with the looks. The flowers are perfect for making a flower crown as shown above in our day look.   

Whether you choose Day or Night, both looks are easy to do and personalize to make your own! 

We wish everyone a Happy Halloween filled with sweets and fun!!

White Haute Nights Recap

Wednesday, March 12, 2014

On Thursday, February 27, we had the honor of being featured in Tabbuli's White Haute Nights. This South Beach-Style event showcased Sassy's latest spring looks as styled by Alexandra Styles. Alexandra Munzel has styled A-List celebrities for the Oscars and the Golden Globe Awards, and has worked with magazines such as Vogue and Harper's Bazaar. We were so impressed how she was able to use Sassy's styles in unique and unexpected ways. We had a blast watching the models, and enjoyed the night at Tabbuli with good food, drinks and company. We would like to give a huge thanks to Alexandra for her amazing styling, MOD Beaute for makeup and hair design, Tabbuli for their perfect venue and Irina Yinger Photography for capturing the event. Check out more pictures here!

Behind the Scenes

Wednesday, January 22, 2014

Hi Girls! 
We apologize we have been MIA lately and wanted to give you a little update and peek “behind the scenes” here at Sassy Shortcake
As many of you know, our owner, Brandy, had a stroke in November. She is back to work and doing wonderful. We are so proud of her progress and we appreciate the patience of our loyal customers over the past few months.  During this difficult time we were not able to focus our efforts online as much as we would have hoped and for that we are truly sorry. 
Now that we are into the swing of 2014 we are ready to get the ball rolling again!  New arrivals will be uploaded at least twice a week so you will have the chance to see what’s new at Sassy and will always be in the loop with our latest fashion trends. The New Year will also be full of many exciting local opportunities. In the upcoming months we are looking forward to participating in the Chase After a Cure Gala, the Style Lounge on the opening night of Charleston Fashion Week, and working with Sneaker for their event in February. We are beyond thrilled to participate in these events and we cannot wait to see what the rest of the year has in store for us. We hope you all have had an amazing start to 2014 and may the New Year bring you lots of love and happiness!
