Daring. Untamed. Unconventional. That’s you. But you’re also quite sweet and very playful. Your footwear should reflect your personality, so try a pair of pink animal print shoes like *Sole Boutique’s “The Leopard Shoe” ($42 at Karmaloop.com). Leopard spots on pink fabric adds an eye-catching touch of funk to one of this season’s key trends. The 6.25 inch heel and 1.25 inch platform give them a little sex appeal, but since the heel isn’t a stiletto, it’s tamed enough to wear with a short skirt without looking like you’re on the prowl. Though a certain fashion favorite platform this season gives a Herman Munster vibe, bout this shoe is cutely chunky without being clunky.
You don’t shy away from the unusual, so you appreciate a drink with a little pizazz. This evening at happy hour, order a Pink Raspberry Margarita (image & recipe via cocktails.about.com). The funny thing about this cocktail is that the only ingredient it really has in common with a margarita is the tequila. Still, it’s a creamy, sweet, strong concoction that you’ll be glad you tried.
- 1 oz Voodoo Tiki Desert Rose Tequila
- 1 oz Tequila Rose
- 1/2 oz crème de noyaux

*Your heels today are chunky, but if you drink too many of these cocktails it may feel like you’re walking on stilts. That said, drink responsibly.
