Time to Buy: The Perfect Boots

These boots were made for…showing off! It’s officially the end of October, so you have every excuse to start stocking up on Fall/Winter fashion. The cornerstone of every autumn wardrobe is a fabulous pair of boots. And, of course, you don’t have to stop at one pair. This season showcases some of the most beautiful footwear I’ve ever seen walking down the runways. Chic riding boots are back for another turn, as well as reinvented cowboy boots and the ever-fabulous bootie. But fresh for this season, try an interesting finish like mod patent leather or surprisingly sleek woven rubber.
