Blue it Right
You're not quite in your normally-conservative mood today. Instead, you feel like spicing things up a bit, but you don't want to let go of your ultra feminine look. A pair of bow-adorned peep toes in a bright color will do the trick for you. These "Serena" slingbacks by London-based Bourne (available for $227.45 via amazon.com) are a great example. The blue-violet hue speaks to this season's primary color trend, the bow, sling back and peep toe are all super girly, and the 4 inch heel works for the office but is still sexy enough for after-work fun. The rhinestone detail also adds a bit of edgy glam. If you happen to be participating in any of the Fashion Week fury, the small hidden platform will keep you comfy as you stand in line to get into the shows.
Keep the British theme going this evening when you order your cocktails. Whether you're toasting the end of a harrowing day or pre-gaming for an evening of parties, a Blue London Sidecar (recipe and image via cocktail365.net) is a great late summer drink. It combines Bulldog Gin, Blue Curacao and lime juice for a tart, but refreshing cocktail. It's also pretty powerful, so be careful not to drink too many.
