Just last week, Lindsay Lohan put out a Twitter plea to Karl Lagerfeld for a few Chanel stickers to dress up her new SCRAM bracelet. When the designer shockingly didn’t immediately respond to her request, Lindsay must have realized she was going to need a second option to get through the court-ordered punishment. Rather than relying on designer freebies, the troubled actress found a new way to hide her SCRAM bracelet. Despite the impending summer heat, Lindsay’s gone boot-happy. While some see summer as a chance to free their feet from the confines of closed-toed shoes, Lindsay has decided to wear slouchy flat boots so her alcohol-monitoring anklet isn’t visible. The actress scrounged up two pairs, one tan and the other dark brown, and has been prancing around California in shorts and her footwear of choice. Quick, some boot-making shoe company send her an assortment of options for tons of free press! [E! Online] Keep reading »
Wellington boots are such popular footwear for summer music festivals, like Bonnaroo in Tennessee and Glastonbury in England where mud and dirt abound, that Hunter decided to create a special “Festival” take on the basic rubber boot. These badass wellies, which feature crocodile-stamped panels and silver-tone rivets, resemble tough-looking motorcycle boots. In our opinion, these $200+ rubber rain boots would make wearers look like they’re trying too hard, but maybe super fashion-conscious concert-goers will go for them.

For some reason, I’m completely incapable of tucking my jeans into boots. Try and try as I may, I inevitably end up with an excess of jean above my shoes, causing me to abandon the effort and move on to heels or flats instead. It could be due to the fact that I rarely wear jeans, or maybe my boots are not the right design for stuffing, or maybe it’s just me. Whatever the reason, someone finally came up with a solution and I’m a little excited. Meet the Küza Strap, a suspender-looking device which hooks to the bottom of your jeans, ensuring that your pants are pulled tight to avoid those awkward fabric rolls and inadequate tucks. It’ll set you back $16, which is a lot for a simple device, but we’ll leave it to you to decide if the price is worth jean perfection. Or you can just buy riding pant clips for $3.99.
