Tied & True
You played all weekend, but it's back to work today. It can be tough to walk the line between your sensitive feminine side and the assertive side that makes your male coworkers respect you. Somehow you do it, though, and fabulously. Remind everyone of your balancing skills today in a pair of high heeled oxfords, like these ribbon-laced shoes from Alberta Ferretti. The cream color signals the start of spring, and the menswear inspiration in the patent leather details references your toughness.

It will definitely have a kick, though, so if you're a lightweight drinker go slowly.
