Recessionista: Singing in the Rain (or snow, or sleet…)

marc jacobs boots
Chicago winters are notoriously cold. So notorious, in fact, that people DIE–from the cold, from slipping, from fires (strange but true). You name it, and Chicago’s winter has done it. It’s no wonder that the city’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 better–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, it’s Marc by Marc Jacobs, but with a struggling economy (and $28 price tag), I’m not too picky when differentiating between “collection†and “diffusion.†And they’re just so darn cute!

  • Not a thing in the world wrong with that. A Midwesterner’s gotta do what a Midwesterner’s gotta do, and those boots are FAR cuter than many of their gaudily-printed kin I see scampering around the Mpls streets.
