Joan of Arc was a serious mutha. In medieval France, you were lucky if circumstances didn’t kill you, impoverish you (more than normal) or leave you with a horrible life. Multiply those things by 10 if you were a woman. In Joan’s case, she managed to outlast the world and also managed to change it. After experiencing what she believed to be a divine intervention, Joan went on to lead the people of France in the Hundred Years’ War. Ultimately, she helped crown Charles VII of France. However valiant she was, Joan was eventually captured by the British and burned as a witch. Better luck next time, Joan.

Hey, that rhymes. Ever read Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events? Well, Violet is one of the main characters and along with her brother and infant sister, she deals with, well, a lot of unfortunate events. There are leeches, evil troupes of actors, devilish counts and friendly deadly vipers. Yeah, it’s pretty much like working at a fashionable fashion magazine of fashions (badumpshhhhh, kidding). Violet’s main claim to fame is that she is an inventor and can quickly solve problems. Anyway, she’s got a Wednesday Addams meets Elizabeth Bennet vibe, which is cool—and spot on for the fall collections.

These are my boots. I wear them every single day when it’s chilly. They have holes in the soles, must get that fixed. They are Rachel Comey boots and she makes a damn good boot. See for yourself at her sweet ass website. Worth every penny…a re-sole and they’ll be good for years.
