Covet: Tie One On November 2015



Manhattan-born designer Ulla Johnson is the daughter of archeologists, so no wonder we dig these sexy leather Aggie boots inspired by her globetrotting childhood. Handmade by artisans in Peru, the 3.75-inch stacked-heel stunners reflect Johnson’s overall design philosophy of adding subtle embellishments—like the adjustable ankle strap and antiqued brass studs—that make her items singular but not overdone. These boots have that timeless vibe like you just pulled your old favorites out of your closet to throw on with jeans. Speaking of which, they’re sold (online only) at Madewell, where we’ve recently fallen in love with the denim quality and fit—and the personalized service at both the Towson and Harbor East stores. (Seriously, we’ll never buy our high-risers anyplace else.) Inside tip: Bring in a pair of old jeans to recycle (the denim is donated to make insulation for Habitat for Humanity) and they’ll give you $20 off the price of any full-price jeans in stock. If only we could get a discount on the Aggies, which run $550 on
