October is the perfect month to embrace all things noir, edgy and provocative. With all the rain coming up this fall, careful to rotate in wet weather to some water proof combat boots! Wear it in fur – one of season’s strongest trends – and you’re set for the season.

I like the startling or maybe “startled?” black pumps by Yves Saint Laurent (above); again below with an added toe “mohawk; an antelope and leather cuff by Yves Saint Laurent; and a beaver clutch by Marc Jacobs.

More for the feet, Alexander Wang’s goat fur boots with a fringe of mane that might even make you think of packing a brush for yourself and your boots (for needed touch-ups, of course).

Creepy, but creepy-cool, is the human hair zip necklace by the guilty hyena. For those home crafters (etsy anyone?)… I can just imagine.

All of this until the next something wicked this way comes.
