Fashionable Food: Springtime Oat Smoothie

March 4, 2018

Today is the official launch of my new series “Fashionable Food”. The whole concept of The Frosted Petticoat was born out a daydream I had about making a beautiful dress into an edible piece of art… thus the name of my company. GASP! It all makes sense now, right?! I have always found recipe and food styling inspiration from the runways and I think it’s about time I show you exactly how my process works. Within the next few months, I will be creating recipes and styling shoots based solely off of inspirational runway looks from the year’s fashion weeks. Our staff is currently in the early prep-stages, but in the meantime I’m going to revisit old recipe posts and pair them with some strikingly similar couture pieces. Sound fun? Yes! So for first Fashionable Food post, I present to you my Springtime Oat Smoothie to match the Spring 2018 Oscar de la Renta dress.

I know it sounds crazy, but some of my best recipe ideas have been inspired by fashion. My brain is weird, but let’s just roll with it. So I thought it’d be fun to give you some insight into how this whole recipe development, food styling process works while also getting to indulge in a little couture. So let’s start off with the spark – Oscar de la Renta’s Spring 2018 line and this scrumptious tulle gown…

With it’s artfully ruched tulle, cascading ombre dye, and perfectly tailored layers there’s only one thing that pops into my mind… SMOOTHIE! I see fresh oats. I see raspberries. I see grapefruit and blueberries. I see a hint of greek yogurt and touch of honey. Yup, this gown is most definitely a smoothie. Following me, yet? Eh, who cares! Let’s eat…
