Get the Boot: Best Booties For Fall

Ok…when we say “get the boot”, we don’t really mean THE boot. Because the boot of the season year decade is the coveted Isabel Marant bootie that we shot on Lisa Lundy in our November feature, Real Women, Real Style.

Now, if you don’t have the $630 that it’ll cost to get those beauties, don’t fret. They’ve been hot for long enough to warrant lots of other “versions” so you’re in luck. Just look for something short with a wider moderate heel and a slightly western vibe.

Steve Madden’s Rifffle, available at Piperlime, is perfection in a short bootie for only $110.

From Nine West’s Vintage America Collection, look for Sosie. Comes in 4 colors and only $109. I’m partial to the grey.

For about $200, you’ll love Madewell’s Zipcode boot. It even comes in navy and red!

At J. Crew, her name is Angie. And bonus – she comes in sizes from 5 to 12!

Can you say $79.95? I thought so! Go for Gap’s Buckle Ankle Boots.

Another cheapie! I’m loving these pre-weathered booties from Rocket Dog, available at Macy’s for only $59.95.

Blue suede boots! From Aldo, discounted at

Glitter coated at Victoria’s Secret for under $100.

Happy shopping!

Fall Shopping Checklist

fall09Hi! I’m Sue and I’m the Fashion Editor of Ladies’ Home Journal. I can’t tell you what to buy for fall (well, actually I did) but I figure I could tell you what I’m going to buy for fall and that way we can get to know each other a little better.

Here are some of the things on my list.

Navy boyfriend blazer: I’m opting for this shorter version from the GAP (sold out online but still available in stores) because it’ll be better for my 5’1″ frame. Navy is perfection to me, and I’ll wear this little number with jeans and tees, over little dresses, and maybe even with a mini skirt and boots. It’s the perfect ‘transition to fall’ piece.

Denim shirt: I already got one from American Eagle—gotta love early fall deliveries! I’ve worn it with a gold mini for a little contrast and this winter I’ll wear it with everything from jeans and a blazer to dressy skirts.
