The booties I’m wearing here have been a conversation starter with everyone who sees me wearing them. While there’s still no snow on the ground, there’s less of a chance that I will face plant while walking (it happens all too often), which means that it’s the perfect season to exploit the ability to wear high heels. The metallic heel on this pair of booties has the ability to make any simple look (read: jeans and a knit) look a little more …
