The tasting was centered around the final edition vodka in the Elit Pristine Water Series: a series of vodka's that are put through quadruple filtration, and incorporate sourcing water from natural areas. This particular vodka includes water sourced from a spring that flows off the top of the Andean mountains. I'm not kidding. The newest vodka, the Andean edition, is considered the third and final limited edition, ultra- luxury vodka in the series.

I'm wearing my favorite pair of embellished stilettos by Rachel Roy (The Aria Pump) (Similar) If you have never tried Rachel Roy shoes, I highly recommend them. They're super high quality and they have padding all along the footbed, which, if you know me at all, you know that my number one outfit related complaint is uncomfortable shoes. I'm on my feet all day in pumps, and all I ever want in life is a pair of comfortable, padded work shoes. (Sale Alert: Helmut Lang is having 40% site wide sale)
The Epic is such a beautiful spot! While the valet situation is terrible and leaves much to be desired, the hotel itself offers a modern feel and a great dining experience. There are two restaurants on-site: Area 31 (the views from this rooftop restaurant are amazing) and Zuma, which boasts one of the city's best brunches. The food tasting at Zuma was top notch. Below are details on what we dined on and my outfit.

You can see in this picture that the top is a big big. I do like oversized blouses a lot so I do not mind the sizing all that much but as I said earlier, if you're small on top like I am, I suggest ordering an XS in Helmut Lang tops.
