Elegant Dressing - Fair Weather Boots

I was in Bergdorf's shoe department yesterday looking for a pair of boots.  As usual it's by far the busiest department in the store with a sea of scattered boxes and women everywhere purchasing multiple pairs of shoes and boots at a steady clip.  

I've been on the hunt for the perfect pair of fair weather boots for awhile and have to say Bergdorf's has the best selection of high fashion options I've seen. So of course I was immediately drawn to all the more glammy high-heel numbers, fantasizing about wearing the exotic designs.  I know full well I'll never wear them and if I do it will most likely be just once. My real-life self is more low-key, less bells & whistles, but I can dream. 

The sale begins in the next week or so, but whether you're in the market for a funky new pair of boots or not, it's still fun to see what's out there!  If I were throwing caution to the wind, here's a selection of what would be on  my to buy list.
