Every girl, at least once in her life, is on the tough quest of finding the perfect pair of boots. The fall season tends to spark this obsession. Every girl picks her poison distinctively. Some prefer a slick black sexy stiletto boot. Others crave a beat up motorcycle boot, and you’ll even get a few every so often who love a red boot (can you say Jennifer Foster circa high school)?

There’s good and bad news. The bad: A great pair of boots can be very tricky to find. The good: You’ll probably find the style you want at Edith Machinist. Lucky for you that I know a thing or two about finding a specific place for a specific reason.

Edith Machinist (her real name!) was one of the first NYC boutique owners to stock vintage with a modern cool aesthetic. She carries some great clothing and handbags (mostly from the 70’s and 80’s) but her draw is definitely footwear. Although prices spike easily, it’s still possible to leave the store with something around $30. This is a must-stop, especially for the vintage loving RGRS.

P.S. If you can’t travel to NYC, she also has a website!
