You can't throw a rock this season without hitting a woman in platform peep toed booties. Like women, they're coming in all varieties these days. Yet, you always find a way to do things a little differently. You've found the formula for combining what's now with what's next (and a little wild child flair thrown in), and you make it look effortless. H Williams' Elise booties (newly available at Vivre.com) are the shoe for you today. The iridescent metallic purple and bronze python and the latticed strap make them eye-catching, and yet they're somehow simple enough to be pretty versatile enough for work (in creative environments) and play (er, partying).
When you arrive at said party or happy hour this evening, we suggest wetting your whistle with an Absolut Liscious (or four if you can handle it). Tell the barback it's a combination of Absolut Vodka, black currant liqueur, lemon juice, cranberry juice and a splash of lemon-lime soda. It's a little sweet, a little tart and a lotta strong (if your bartender's any good). As always, we must warn you to mind your limits. It's not hard to go from divaliscious to a "don't" story.
