Fall Footwear | Boots & Booties

I don’t know about you – But this time of year I start itching to pull out my boots and booties. Over the years I’ve put some time and attention into my collection. While I used to veer towards stilettos and less-than-comfortable brands, I’ve come to realize something very important when it comes to footwear.

Happy feet, Happy Caity.

So here are some of my favorite styles – Including both steals and investment pieces – That you should look at for Fall.

Ankle Booties:

Whether you like some height or want to keep ’em low, ankle boots never go out of style. So find a pair you love and hang on to them!

Mid-Calf:

I remember my first pair of mid-calf height boots – My mom got them for me for Christmas my junior or senior year of high school. Probably junior year since I remember wearing them while touring college campuses. I remember the feel of the leather and my sadness when I saw how much the heel was wearing down!

The love affair continues…

Knee-High:

These boots are a must. You can wear this style for everything from work to errands to date night. It’s extremely versatile, and if you play your cards right, comfortable.

Thigh-High:

There was a time when I immediately pictured Julie Roberts a la Pretty Woman when someone said that phrase “Thigh High.” Now these babies are a staple in my wardrobe. Here are my top picks for “OTK” (aka Over the Knee) boots that you can wear all day long.

I’ve GOT to know – What’s YOUR favorite pair?

Everything from the killer boots that will take you where you want to the striking hats and bold bags that will finish off your look.

Faux Fur:

A great way to keep warm as the temperatures drop is with cozy layers of faux fur – From boho chic vests to soft scarves to glamorous outerwear perfect for layering.

Voyage To Marrakech

A big Thank You to The Factory and The Evans Group for the unbelievable trip to Marrakech last week – Who knew that in the streets of SOMA you could escape to the market stalls of exotic Morocco?

Voyage To Marrakech is an evening inspired by Yves Saint Laurent’s glamorous 1970’s lifestyle in Moroco to showcase their Spring 2013 Collection. An illuminated nighttime Marrakech marketplace, with cocktails, food, and music, and live photoshoot presentation, featuring live vignettes inspired by iconic YSL iconic photographs.

Stylish San Franciscans flocked to our own personal Marrakech last week to celebrate The Factory’s new collection inspired by the love affaire that YSL had with Marrakech.

{The looks that evening ran the gamut from ultra modern to vintage inspired to came-straight-from-the-office}

{Cocktails, mannequins sporting Yves Saint Laurent-inspired frocks, friends reuniting, fortune tellers…}

{And the models showed off a phenomenal Spring 2013 collection filled with sleek, shimmering fabrics, vintage patterns & prints, luxurious metallics, faux fur, relaxed silhouettes, and fun accessories}

{I wore a long-sleeved, high-neck vintage shift dress, Zara ankle strap heels, and a fabulous gold necklace from Sasha Maks Vintage}
