le smoking…


finally some love for the ladies – i recently whet my appetite for some stylish, menswear-inspired but practical footwear by way of rachel roy (via nordstrom).

christmas wishlist item #1…

christmas: snow… fireplaces… high-back chairs… cigars… robes… and velvet slippers.

velvet slippers by Stubbs & Wooten - $400.00 retail.

…and if i were a man…

"top hat" - men's only (sexists...).

"alden" - men's only...again!

foot in mouth.

i can’t believe i haven’t posted about this shoe company sooner.

i first discovered stubbs and wooton about three years ago. i instantly fell in love with the old-school vibe of their velvet slippers and loafers; they conjured an image of silk pajamas, a pipe, and a highback chair, without the hefner-esque camp. you can buy a pre-designed pair or go bespoke, aka made-to-order: fabric type and color, piping color, design, crest, and of course, monograms. yessir, a pair can set you back somewhere between $400.00 – $700.00… would you like your initials embroidered in a colored cotton thread, in silver wire, or 18kt gold wire? tough choice.

the ladies.

the gents.

ah, humor. (most pre-fab designs are available for both men & women.)
