Bargain Friday’s TPS Report: Shuella, “Your Shoe Umbrella”

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices. We begin the week in splurge mode, with our most expensive suggestions, and wind our way to Friday, where a less expensive item of clothing might be just what you need to make it to the weekend.

We love to wear our Wellington’s when it rains, but the lousy thing about them is that they’re gigantic rain boots — it’s impractical to buy an extra pair to stash at the office, and you can’t easily tuck them into your bag to take with you if there’s only a chance of rain. Inevitable result: that 30% chance of rain turns into a flash flood on the day you’re wearing your brand new suede Manolos.

Fortunately, one woman has created a solution — they’re boots designed to go over whatever shoes you’re wearing by enveloping them in rubber; beyond the slip-free sole they don’t really have a “form.” Thus, they protect your shoes from the elements, but they also fold up and tuck neatly into a bag smaller than most women’s cosmetic cases — easy to throw into your briefcase or keep a pair in your personal drawer at the office. Available in black, pink, yellow, and green; they’re available at Shuella for $49.95. (The store is also offering free shipping for a limited time.) Shuella – your shoe umbrella
