Bi-functional Britches

…plus new shoes for your old ones and girls-night-out goodies


SMARTY PANTS: We’re still waiting for pajama pants that function in the workplace as boardroom breeches. Until then, we’re stoked about XCVI Hybrid Pants. Slap them on with a tank top and flip-flops for daytime duties. Then slip into a chic shirt and stilettos for after dark activities. Added bonus: the cropped pants are adorned with rivet and grommet detail to keep you in line with fall’s fashion forecast. $68, Palm Produce, 3380 Mary St., Coconut Grove; 305.448.0777      
SHOE SWAP: Karma, it can be a bitch, but it can also be a blessing. Nine West’s Vintage America Collection catches karma on its better side with the Soles4Souls shoe swap. Just bring in a pair of gently worn shoes starting today and get 15 percent off any purchase of $75 or more (redeemable online and in stores). Your old shoes will go to feet in need, while your new shoes will gain you envious stares all season long. Through September 24.  

THE GREAT BEAU-TINI: Chocolate, martinis and gift certificates, oh my. GBS, the Beauty Store is partnering with Blue Martini in Boca for drinks, desserts and discounts. Just head over to the hotspot tonight and purchase a Three Chocolates or Almond Joy Martini and score a $10 gift card redeemable at GBS stores in Boca. You’ll also land a pocket-sized beauty guide, a touch-up and a chance to win a beauty basket. Ah, the goodness of girl power. Blue Martini, 6000 Glades Road, Boca Raton; 561.910.BLUE
