Vivienne Westwood Anglomania Navy Cotton Jacket

While the first thought of plastic shoes brings me back to my childhood summers playing in parks while wearing jelly shoes, they're not something I'd typically wear today. However, Brazil-based Melissa Shoes has been on my fashion radar for the last few years and I think I'm ready to take the plunge into plastic shoes again. If you're not familiar with Melissa, you may have heard some of the other world class designers the company has worked with including Vivienne Westwood, Alexandre Herchcovitch, and there's an upcoming collaboration with Jean-Paul Gaultier. Following their motto "Plastic Dreams, Melissa has produced 50 million pairs of shoes over the past 25 years in an eco-friendly way. The Melissa Ashanti bootie has completely charmed me with its fashion-forward silhouette and since they're completely waterproof, I can finally say goodbye to my clunky rain boots.

The fall runways were splattered with bright hues and neon shades. Erin O'Connor showed us how to do it best at the Vivienne Westwood Red Label fashion show during London Fashion Week, by adding just a splash to an all black or neutral outfit. The model strutted her stuff front row at the show in a sexy fitted sequin blazer and with some slouchy black trousers. However, what took her outfit from chic to extraordinary was the large neon pink purse. Neon can be a hard trend to tackle (like the Michael Kors highlighter yellow trapper hat) but when done in small doses it can really pack a punch with out making you look like your dressed for an '80s party. Check out the slideshow for how to get Erin's look as well as some other neon accessories. Photo credit: PR Photos
