Chicago winters are notoriously cold. So notorious, in fact, that people DIEâ€“from the cold, from slipping, from fires (strange but true). You name it, and Chicagoâ€™s winter has done it. Itâ€™s no wonder that the cityâ€™s crime rate drops in colder months; people would rather be warm than commit felonies.
But I digress. I tend to go into fashion hibernation come the colder months. For me, it has more to do with practicality than sloppiness. Why wear a French-cuffed shirt when a thermal henley will do the job betterâ€“and keep me warmer? Form definitely takes a backseat to function, and this winter is no different.
Imagine my surprise then, as fall turned into winter, when I stumbled along these single-mold rubber rain boots by none other than Marc Jacobs himself. Sure, itâ€™s Marc by Marc Jacobs, but with a struggling economy (and $28 price tag), Iâ€™m not too picky when differentiating between â€œcollectionâ€ and â€œdiffusion.â€ And theyâ€™re just so darn cute!
