The It Boot Of The Season Costs $1295, And It’ll Never Go On Sale

If you haven't heard of Isabel Marant yet, we wouldn't blame you. While fashion insiders have been obsessed with her cool boho dresses and French schoolgirl cardigans for years now (when editors trek to Paris for the collections, her shop is a must-stop destination), she's remained largely unknown in the States and for a very…

4 Boots In 1 Actually Kind Of A Good Idea

Know those convertible pants that become shorts just by unzipping the bottoms? In theory: good idea. In reality: ugly as hell. So it's pretty amazing that Michael Kors has managed to take the same principle, stick it on a boot, and make it moderately stylish. Behold his new "Franny" style, which can be zipped u…

Will You Buy Designer FitFlops?

My roommate swears by FitFlops, those fugs sneakers/sandals that give you a workout while you walk, claiming she’s seen changes in her calves and rear. But I’m not convinced and would rather spend more time at the gym than wear those curved clunkers. Though I might be persuaded to try them now, as Anna Sui

Get Kate Moss’s Boots (For Way Less Than She Paid)

Kate Moss was spotted leaving the John Frieda salon in London today, but it's not her hair that caused us to look twice. (Um, definitely not the 'do; perhaps she just got a conditioning treatment?) Maybe only a supermodel can get away with pairing black denim hot pants with tights, a leo underneath a blazer,…

Two Boots For The Price Of One

If you're like me, you're probably super excited about the fall weather and on the hunt for the perfect pair of boots to wear with skirts and dresses (and pants too, I suppose). While I haven't found my perfect boots yet, I did find this interesting pair by Colin Stuart at Victoria's Secret. Booties and…

Yohji Yamamoto For Dr. Martens Boots

Doc Martens are the ultimate iconic grunge boots. From neon pink to army fatigue, we've seen many a color and print variation over the years, some better than others. But we're truly stoked for the latest incarnations in floral and tweed created by equally iconic Japanese designer, Yohji Yamamoto. Our favorite from the collection, which…

Boots Are Coming Out Of Their Summer Hibernation

We normally put away our boots in favor of flip-flops and sandals when summer comes, but ankle boots have made their presence known on red carpets of late, and we're trying to decide whether we should keep our feet ensconced in leather for the next few months. "There are certain women who are just over…

Bring Back 1997 With Floral Doc Martens

When my parents moved me from NYC to a small Massachusetts town in third grade, I instantly became the weird kid, owed largely to these floral-printed Docs. They were loud and flashy, especially because I wore them with a poodle skirt and ruffled blouse. This scared the living daylights out of Sleepytown, USA. (I also…

Crave: Luichiny Handy Boots

Date dressing is a tricky thing. We don't want to resort to skin-tight, low-cut, belly-bearing clothes to be sexy. We want to be adored for our witty banter, our keen intellectual insights and our artistic sensibilities. And yet we want to look hot. Really hot. When a friend spied these (unworn) Luichiny Handy Boots i…

Fancy Boots For Rainy Days

Dr. Martens isn't the only boot-maker collaborating with other designers this year. Hunter Boots, famed for their wellies, asked Jimmy Choo to work with them, and a pair with an embossed crocodile pattern, leopard-print lining, and gold-metal buckles and rivets was the result. The boots will be available in June for $395 in Jimmy Choo…
