Hunter Wellies for Anjela, Penelopes for all
Fall means even more rain (the wettest year on record where I live). When it's too soggy for shoes and too mild for winter boots, Wellies enter, and endure through slush season.
J. Crew now offer the classic Hunter Wellington ($115) through their web site, and I'm crushin' on the vibrant orange. The lilac is a surprisingly netural colour too, a gentler, romantic Welly.
I imagine Anjela in these with her ecru lace skirt.
There is tromp and there is sashay. The Penelope peep toe ($225) has to be named for Penelope Cruz; the colours right out of an Almodovar film.
Shoes of wit and character, shoes that wink on your feet.
Aye aye, caliente!
