Cutesy Tuesday: Nina Ricci Pumps Blue Ice Vodka Cocktails


Blue it Right


There's a quote that says "We only live once, but if we do it right, once is enough." (by Gary Ryan Blair.) You may not have heard the exact quote before, but those are the words by which you live. There's never a thread or a hair out of place (although you possess a bit of a whimsical aura). These blue suede Nina Ricci pumps should be part of your shoe wardrobe (grab them at NY's Edon Manor- an S&B favorite!). The 5 inch covered heel and slightly pointed-but-rounded toe are pretty simple and proper. However the vibrant hue and vertical bow make them an of-the-moment classic. No? They're versatile, too, since this year, bright is the new black.

Matchy-matchy has never been your thing, but you're definitely one to coordinate. That said, make the "Blondie in Blue" your drink of choice this evening (no matter what your hair color is). As elegant and complex in flavor as you are, it combines Blue Ice Vodka, Marie Brizard Parfait Amour and Lillet Blonde. It's a semi-sweet and super chic flavor infusion of organge, vanilla and bitters. Two caveats, though- mind your tongue, lips and teeth (the Smurfette look only works in cartoons), and monitor your intake. Pretty drinks, like pretty shoes and pretty men, may look harmless, but... (a word, to the wise, is sufficient.)
