SLOSHING IN STYLE: The rain boot and the Angeleno do not necessarily go way back; yet come these wet winter weeks -- not days, but weeks -- many of us are wishing we'd been a bit more sensible on our last shopping excursion. The Ellie rain boot from Kamik is plenty sensible, plenty stylish, and it keeps the foot dry as we leg it around LA. Plus, eggplant. Can't beat deep purple on a gray day. DE-DAMPED FEET: The Egglant Ellie is $69.95 at Zappos.com.
