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!
Your favorite coffee shop, the restaurant where you are a regular, the farmer's market, and your favorite local boutique. These are some of the places that make Charleston "home". Come join Sassy Shortcake Boutique Saturday, the 29th for Shop Small Saturday to help support local businesses! With every purchase of 75 dollars or more we will be giving you a little gift to say "thank you".
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.
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...
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!

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!

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!
We are beyond thrilled to be a part of the amazing Chase After a Cure Golden Gala! This is going to be an incredible event featuring food from local restaurants, an open bar, live auction, silent auction, and American Idol finalist Elise Testone. Sassy Shortcake will be providing 100 gift bags for attendees to receive in a drawing and we will be there to support the cause.
