The Best Fall Boots For You, Determined By Your Favorite Work Of Art

1. If you love Andy Warhol, you want something more modern. Something with a little edge to it, a little glitter, but something still accessible. Something with gold elements.

These. Schutz Shoes, $230.

2. If you love the totally impractical, peasants-gonna-get-you romanticism of Fragonard:

Nicholas Kirkwood, $1,695

3. You like the Mona Lisa? You like things that are absolutely classic. Let people call you boring. Those people can’t truly appreciate the way those things feel familiar, yet, when you stare at them, you realize they are familiar because they are beautiful every time you look at them:

Coclico, $555

4. You die-hard WASP, you. Let’s go beagling together.

Saks, $598

5. Colors and light and a little element of whimsical cartoonishness make us all feel happy inside:

Shoes of Prey, $330

      That….actually worked? No, seriously. Have been obsessing about needing/wanting/coveting a pair of those lovely riding-style flat boots and BAM. #4 was my favorite painting. Didn’t even cheat.

      That worked for me, too! Fragonard and Kirkwood (GAWD I want those shoes so bad!)

    • Jen

      Is there a Mona Lisa boot version under, say, 50 bucks? Because I’m a cheap classics lover.

    • Lauren

      Wow, that worked for me too. Well done, Jennifer. You win the internet today.

        Thank you. I will take the internet home with me and watch some Gossip Girl re-runs with it.

      But… I like Monet. What about Monet!

      SO MUCH AWESOME. Definitely picked number 4. Definitely already have riding boots…. but now that I know I must have more riding boots to channel my inner WASP, I should go buy some more. When I ask myself later in the month why I do not have money for foodstuffs, I will remember that it is because Jennifer Wright read my mind and enjoy my ramen because all is right in the world.

      I am sort of surprised that I am a die-hard WASP, especially since I am not Anglo-Saxon at all, but I am very fond of both riding boots and Goya. So good job!

      You should have added some of those heel-less boots from Jeffrey Campbell, for Salvador Dali for some surrealist flavor.
