The best part of the fun in Miami is that hitting the town means an all-out fashion free-for-all. You can get away with wearing fun stuff you couldn't think about in more staid cities. I've gone for a glitz-and-glam approach here that will hopefully snag you some of those hard-to-catch Miami eyes without looking like a spring breaker. The dress boasts plenty of sparkle with a sexy short hem but keeps things classy with a higher, square-cut neckline - and is on super markdown, which means more designer bang for your buck. I went silver with accessories for a strong contrast and saved cash on the shoes (who's going to be looking at your feet in the club, anyway?) to include a pair of seriously blinging statement earrings just authentic-looking enough to keep people guessing.

Throw your tough stuff at me and let me go bloodhound on it. When not playing on Outblush, I'm probably yelling at my cats, getting a backrub from my hot teacher husband, or trying to turn anything animal, vegetable, or mineral I can get my hands on into booze.
