"Just goes to show you that you can never have too many boots!"
Her collection includes six pairs, and runs the gamut from the versatile, weatherproof Stuart Weitzman booties to the knee-high Italian leather boots by Isaac. The Stuart Weitzman booties are the workhorse of the collection; they're weather-proof, so they can withstand all kinds of New England weather, yet they're still polished enough to go from work to evening. In fact, she buys, and wears out, a pair of these boots every winter.
For dressier occasions in the winter, her water-proof Aquatalia knee-high boots are perfect: the studs and elastic weave up the side give them a bit of an edge, and they look great with skirts and tights; they are also super-comfortable. To go even dressier, the fabric Donald Pliners with the silver badge on the back (so sexy!) and the never-worn Italian boots by Isaac both fit the bill. Less practical (but no less gorgeous!) are the brown Bruno Magli booties: at 3-1/2" (without a platform), the heels just don't permit everyday wear. Nonetheless, they are one of her favorite pairs of boots, not least because she got them on sale for the never-seen price of $99.The non-boot portion of her collection betrays a weakness for Stuart Weitzman: it's about 35% Stuart Weitzman, including the incredible gray suede platforms she got a great deal on at the end-of-season sale last April but has yet to wear.
