The Question:
Where can I find cute, all-weather shoes that still make me feel like a girl?

The Answer: Waterproof shoes in cute shapes are indeed hard to come by. I'm into performance-based technology and generally don't bother trying to mix business with pleasure when it comes to getting dressed so I wear my Eight Inch L.L. Bean boots for splashing around in puddles then switch to prettier shoes when I get to work. I also weatherproof my leather boots with a waterproofing spray before each winter season in the event that I do get caught in the rain. There are some brands that do a good job of bridging the gap though. Check out the slideshow for some ideas.
