Give Her Slippers... But Not Just Any Slippers

I was never a slipper person. Thought it went with a house coat and rollers. But I run cold and my toes and fingers get icy. Not sexy. So I wore socks - or more accurately I wore them out. I finally broke down and looked for slippers... and after these, I'm a convert. These are a small selection of what's out there, in the interest of time. If I find more I will add to this post. But these do not say FRUMP. More like HEAVEN... Read on.

Nothing is warmer, and there is no itch from wool, no stray fibers everywhere like Angora. And let's face it, it's a classy thing to give.

Ballet flats from Red Envelope, a company known for their quality. I hear they run small- someone in the reviews said they were an 8-8.5 and the large just fit. They will stretch a little but if you have a size 9 or above, this may not be for you. They are cozy, soft and will keep those toes which tend to get chilly warm as toast. In beautiful colors. Find HERE for $89.00. TIP: As of this writing, enter the code SHIPFREE on any order over $75 and you save. 



And right now at Old Navy, you can buy these sherpa- lined moccasins that have rubber bottoms so she can run to the store in them too. Like taking your bed quilt out in that cold with you. In every color imaginable in the store - including a matte, very palatable (not garish) gold and silver. HERE is the link to less colors on line, but still many of the classics ( ruby red, tan, gray, black) and some of the brights, like this happy blue. $22  TIP: select colors are on sale now for $18, and use code EARLY GIFT through 11/16 to get up to 30% off.

Sierra Trading posts offers these Acorn Vega boiled wool slippers in festive red or sage green or go-with-everything Winter White with a unique and pretty pattern. Cushioned faux fur insole (read the description of their warm and toasty construction on the link). On sale now HERE for $34.95. TIP:  For purchases over $75 enter the code SITEWAY113 through 11:59 on November 24 and get an extra 30% off plus free shipping.

My freezing feet are longing for some of these . . . though, perhaps I'll just go put on the super-warm ones I already have!!! But this collection looks luscious . . .
