Temperatures are falling and our summer togs just aren't doing the trick. It's time for warmer gear. Harriet, Judy and Tamara met Roshawnda Foster, sales person extraordinaire, in the Saks Fifth Avenue dressing room for a preview of the freshest fall fashions. Clothes lined the walls, accessories were piled high and plenty of shoes sat there to complement the latest looks.

This summer my SOLE SISTERS interns, Lan and Nadia, wanted to do something special that was meaningful, fun and that they could call their own. This is a time when we Baby Boomers have to realize that today's college age co-eds don't recognize the names Betty Friedan, Gloria Steinem or even Ann Richards. These bright young women know so little about the battles we fought.

Our friend and Good News Girl, Cynthia Salzman Mondell, asked me to write about how I feel about my travels with the Little Black Shoe. She's hard at work on a documentary film called Sole Sisters about women and their relationships with their shoes, and it makes sense that she'd inquire. I've said a lot so far about the shoes and how they perform and how my feet feel, but very little about any emotion they evoked.

The Little Black Shoe was a perfect choice for the trip to Edinburgh. I never needed another shoe-not even my sneakers. Cobblestones in the castle were easy to manage as were the decks of the boat. They felt good during our hikes and looked great when we went out in the evening.

Cornwall spreads out in the most western part of England, celebrated for its wild terrain, great surfing, and excellent food. Instead of going directly back to Andria's house in Shropshire, we headed for the sun. Our goal was to find a hotel for Andria's 2012 Cornwall Garden Tour and check out sites for them to visit.

Years ago while traveling in France, I passed a sign that said Thalassotherapy. French friends told me that thalasso places use seawater for health benefits and that the French government sponsors these health spas. Apparently the French government no longer pays for thalassotherapy, and that had been my favorite part of the story. I'd love to think my government would pay for spa treatments. The real truth is that the French coast is dotted with these saltwater healing plants and everyone is welcome to go and pay their own way.

Over thirty years ago my friend, Brad showed me photos of his trip to Mont Saint-Michel and St-Malo. Surely there would never be a more romantic place-beautiful, mystic cathedral built on land that becomes an island at high tide when water covers the causeway. Home to fewer than 50 people. Tucked away in the far edge of Normandy, Mont Saint-Michel never made it into my travel plans to France. Until this trip.

Whoever told us that the southern part of Brittany is the sunny side must be selling real estate. It has rained some every day since we've arrived on the south coast, and today it poured all day long.

Refusing to let a little rain slow us down, we got up early and visited a medieval garden with Queen and Patrick.

Today we had to dress for all four seasons. We spent the day in and out of our coats and sweaters. The wind had winter fangs, but the sun was summer hot-when it was out. We had spring showers along the way, and in the evening we had an autumn fire.

I've spent years seeking the perfect travel shoe-one that will take me from a casual evening with friends to dinner at a nice restaurant or a hike in the woods. Enter the Little Black Shoe (LBS). I have finally found what is, if not perfection, then something very close. Footwear's answer to the Little Black Dress is made by Merrell and sold as a hiking shoe.

As I grew up I found it very difficult to find shoes to fit me. My feet were long and narrow. My heel was very narrow, too. In St. Joseph, Missouri, my hometown, I could find shoes only at Royal College or Steve's. I was in Royal College once having a hard time finding a good fit. The shoe salesman commented, "You are built just like a race horse."

I remember the day she first saw me. I knew she was imaging us together and all we would do. I made her feel feminine; as she walked she seemed to glide just as a model on the runway. Her legs felt long and slender and her confidence was over the top. When we danced I would make her feet look amazing and move in sequence.

About 30 years ago I attended a school board meeting when our town's population sign stated little more than 3,000 residents. (It's over 8,000 now). The school board had just raised taxes and many citizens appeared at the local school board meeting, which was held in the meeting room of the "administration building," a small metal building with an unpaved parking lot.

In September 1939 a young woman signed on for her first teaching job in Presidio, a dusty border town not too far from Marfa, Texas.  She had gotten her college degree without help from her father, who did not see any need for women to go to college. With money earned from sewing, ironing, and doing manicures, she did get that degree, and she started a job a month after graduation, living with two girlfriends.

I have a family of boots. Each pair of boots evokes a different feeling when I'm wearing them. The newest add to the collection are bright pea green (see photo) with a fit that feels as smooth as wax. Playful, these boots have some serious swagger! When I'm wearing them, I forget about all the others.
