Purple is the color for fall, and we think Emilio Pucci's purple patent-leather ankle boots will make a truly regal fashion statement. You can pick up a pair at Leokadia, Jessica Lynn's South End women's shoe paradise. Lynn also has Costablanca from Spain, Repetto from Paris, French Sole from London, and Donna Karan. The shop is named for her mother, a "shoe fanatic," according to her daughter, who has 1,000 square feet of closet space just for her shoes. The shop also carries jewelry, hair accessories, handbags, and apparel.
Shoes start at $80. Leokadia, 667 Tremont St., Boston. 617-247-7463. leokadiashoes.com.
