Fashion Find: It’s Raining Boots, Hallelujah!

Psst, I’m gonna tell you a little secret. L.A. has a rainy season, and it is happening right now. Although the downfall is not nearly as romantic as an East Coast summer thunderstorm, the rain is needed, appreciate and with a charm of it’s own. The cascading water also provides me with a great opportunity to bust out some of my old gear and mix it up with a new purchase I have been longing for thanks to däv.

When colorful rain boots became a popular trend several years ago, I was all over it. The inclement weather of  my New York City environment, made fashionable and practical all weather shoes a must  for surviving and thriving throughout the seasons. However, when I moved to CA, I got rid of my collection of weather proof footwear hoping that one day I would find better suitable options. Here are some of my favorite from däv, the California based company that is an offshoot of Style West.

One of the staples in my Pear Shapely wardrobe are Chuck Taylor All Stars. They are comfy, perfect for walking and can easily be worn with jeans or casual dresses. However, they are not waterproof and will not keep my feet warm and toasty when it downpours. The next best thing are these beauties for $60:

Just like the model, I would wear these with a pair of cuffed up jeans and consider puddle jumping a worthy pastime. But wait there is more. Maybe you have a meeting where more professional attire is required. How about a rain pump for only $60?

Seriously, that is a spectator style rain shoe that will not only serve an important purpose, but will make shapely calves pop thanks to the heel.  But if you want to kick it old school, they have the most adorable selection of English Styled, Sport and even Cowboy rain boots. Seriously, regardless of your rain shoe needs, this is the company for you. Right now until December 15, purchasing any three items from the entire däv collection of rain gear, hand bags and socks, will entitle you to free shipping, gift wrapping and a free pair of socks. Just enter the word “HOLIDAY” when prompted and happy shopping!

    Kerri Sengstaken here from dav rain boots. Thank you so much for the write up on your blog. We loved it!

    An interesting product to add would be the new Victoria boot. It has a corset lace up the back so it adjusts to any calf width! So cute, please check it out.

    Hello Kerri-

    Thanks so much for taking a look and even commenting. I’ve been eyeing your boots for a couple of years now and am just a huge fan. The Victoria boot sounds awesome, as the adjustability factor would work especially well for my readers, women who are Pear Shaped.

    Thanks again for dropping a line and have a great holiday!
