16 Awesome Shoes & Bags Spotted On D.C.'s Chilly Streets

UPDATE: The best way to show off some personality when you're bundled up? Opt for an eye-catching bag or a statement shoe — here are the coolest ones we've spotted around town lately. This story was originally published on February 7, 2013.
On the days when it's too cold to even roll out of bed, much less put together a great outfit, we rely on the small things — an amazing pair of boots, a gorgeous satchel — that provide major impact with minimal effort. And clearly, the District's most stylish gals abide by the same philosophy, because we're witnessing a boom when it comes to covetable bags and shoes. (You know, the ones that inspire endless eBay searches.)
