Style meets comfort. Though boots will be a go-to this fall, flats should be on the shopping list, too. We’re obsessing over these fashion-forward ballerinas from Salvatore Ferragamo, an Italian designer whose handcrafted footwear first flourished in the 1920s. The company has since expanded to sell accessories and apparel, but the Varina leather shoes—which come in a variety of colors, including black and purple—top our list for a fall must-have.

The Louisiana Nursery Home and Garden Showplace recommends pruning rosebushes for the fall. For hybrid tea and antique roses, reduce the plant's overall height by one-third to prevent root lift, and remove thin canes to prevent wind damage. For Knock Out roses, prune no more than 25% of the bush overall. Lastly, clear all the bushes of excess debris. Experts at Louisiana Nursery Home and Garden Showplace can be reached at 766-0300.
