Stubbs and Wootton Slippers
What I’ve always considered to be the “Lucien Pellat-Finet” of velvet and embroidered slippers, I’m longing for a pair of comfy, cozy Stubbs and Wootton slippers in all this cold, “blah” weather.
A twist on the traditional velvet slippers of yore, Stubbs and Wootton channels the days of British aristocracy. But more so than that, with all of this torrential rain that we’ve been having across the Eastern Seaboard, I want nothing more than to lounge around in a big, fluffy robe, make some cocoa, and keep my perpetually cold feet toasty. But my favorite thing about them would have to be the cheeky embroidery; as opposed to the traditional monogram, they feature designs such as skulls, cannabis leaves, peace signs, and damask chandeliers. And while at $350 a pop, they’re not exactly a steal, they’re at most, half the price of the of their high-fashion counterparts; Ralph Lauren’s models retail from $650-$950, but don’t come in women’s sizes. Dolce and Gabanna did their own take for their Fall 2006 collection, and now for for their Fall 2009 menswear collection. But they’re not even half as cute. I mean, c’mon, Mr. Monopoly on a slipper? That itself is kinda priceless!
