Smooches!

New York Fashion Week ends today, and whether you attended the shows physically or vicariously, you’re sure to be in a bit of a head spin… so much so, that you need a break from sky high stilettos. Good thing ladylike kitten heels are one of this Fall’s biggest trends. Say goodbye to the New York shows and hello to the London ones with a big, red-lipped kiss. Rather, let your toes do the smooching in these Verity Pumps by Charlotte Olympia (available at Kirna Zabete for $829). It’s flirty 3.3 inch heel makes it comfy enough for party hopping, and the pointed toe gives it a bit of formality. However, the crystal accented lip clip, felt material and emerald color make it unconventionally fun.

Now that you’ve spent the last 7 days watching waif-ish women walk the runway and size 2 celebrities on the red carpet, if you’re anything like me you’re counting calories. Don’t let that stop you from enjoying a good drink, though. Opt for a skinny cocktail, like Blushing Berry featuring Voli Light Vodka (this vodka has 25%- 40% less calories than many other popular vodkas).

Recipe

· 2 oz Voli Raspberry Cocoa

· ½ oz raspberry liqueur

· Regular or diet cranberry juice

Method: Build ingredients over ice and stir.

Just because it’s low in calories doesn’t mean it’s low in alcohol. Don’t overdo it with this cocoaliscious berry concoction, or else your real lips might pucker up to the wrong person.
