The rainy season is upon us here in SF, and since my main mode of transportation in the city is my feet, I can’t live without a good pair of rain boots. Two years ago I wandered into a Marc by Marc Jacobs store and discovered that they carried relatively inexpensive rain boots – and of course snatched up a pair. I later learned that they become all the rage when they hit the stores and sell like wildfire (must have walked in right when they got them in!). I’m still rocking my purple-on-purple ones from last year, but love these chic and simple black rain boots available now (adore the small skull near the bottom). Designer name without the designer price? Yes please! Oh, and your feet will stay dry too.
