Why this works: If your office is super-conservative, sequins might not fly. But in a creative office, a touch of sequins like this is perfectly acceptable. Keep the rest of your outfit professional (a blazer and some dress pants should do the trick) to show that you still mean business, and you're good to go!

Today's shoes are from my new favorite store: Ross. I ventured in there the other day to look for some black pumps and couldn't believe the prices! I bought the shoes I'm wearing today for $23. They are BCBG, the same style below left (except mine are nude patent) that are going for $89 on Heels.com. I also bought the Steve Maddens on the right for $19.99 (except mine are black patent), and they are going for $79 on Shoemall.com. See what I mean? The prices are crazy. What are your favorite hidden gems for great deals on shoes?
