need more velvet

After trying them out on the cheap, courtesy of H&M, I’ve realized how well velvet slippers fit into my life, and now I want more of them. They are worldly, classy, and delighfully eccentric, and the fact they they’re slip-ons allows you to look put-together without going through the cumbersome process of tying up lace-ups or buckling up boots. It’s lazy luxury and I like it.
Stubbs and Wootton “screw you” velvet slippers: shoes to mark the start of reinvention.
Stubbs and Wootton, quality velvet-slipper-makers since 1993, are old-school, WASPy, and not exactly fashion-y, but theirs are the cleverest velvet slippers I have seen in a long time. I’m a huge fan of slightly mismatched footwear, as seen above, but these symmetrical beauties are also crying for a spot in my cramped shoe closet:
barbed wire embroidery on black linen
“tortoise spice” on beige

    The "screw" and "U" slipper pair is hysterical!!! I love the edgy twist on the classic.

    I need some painfully honest slippers in my life.

    I need more people to write the words "need more velvet."
