Boots, boots and more boots.  While it’s no surprise boots are one of the stylish women’s top choices for Fall and Winter, this year you’ll find them to be even more prevalent.  Remember all the photos of women wearing boots throughout Summer, think of those as trend bellwethers.  Tall and slender brown leather boot by Frye, with an option of a fold over cuff. Adjustable leather strap detailing on upper.

Soooo… You must be thinking something.  The over the knee boot on the left, the Carnaby (presumably named after London’s trendy, young street) is an ultra-sleek black leather boot fit for a supermodel or the young at heart and of fashion sense.  Quite frankly, either this is for you or it’s not. 

On a bit tamer yet equally hip and trendy note we’ve got the Stuart Weitzman Bangs.  This fringe-laden ankle boot with sliver stud detailing and strap with big buckle embellishment.  Comfortable and wearable as it’s set on a 3 ½” stacked heel.

Cute by Marc Jacobs?? Yes.

August 11, 2008

While we usually describe most Marc Jacobs shoes and accessories with almost any word other than cute, in this instance I think it actually fits quite well.  Maybe “sophisticated cute?”  Or “adult cute?”  “Working-woman cute?”  Enough..

This new arrival from the Marc by Marc Jacobs Fall/Winter 2008 is the only low heeled mary jane you should consider this year.  Sleek, clean lines, stylish and understated yet elegant enough to not outlive itself.  Set on a 1 ¼” squared patent heel and highilighted with an incredibly rich patent leather, this adorable black Mary Jane ballet will look fabulous with just about any outfit.
