If you recall a while back on a $2.00 Tuesday post how ecstatic I was about finding two pairs of these vintage slippers for $2.00
I was extremely happy, but here it is over two years later and they’re history with me. I must say I truly got a good wear out of them. But the time has come to put them to rest and search for more. I’ve been hitting a few estate sales and yards sales trying to find some, but nothing has turned up. So my next step was to hit the internet. Sure I bought a pair from our local shoe store, (the foot warmers), but I also wanted a pair that embraced my vintage style and grace. While outdoor fashion defines your image outside of home, once you’re inside, having that special lounge wear that enhances your beauty, charm and yes, sex appeal, is a simple joy and comfort of being at home. While lounging, you should also have a stylish pair of boudoir slippers on your feet. Whether wearing comfy lounge wear or a sexy peignoir, I’ve chosen the top styles that would make you feel like Cinderella at home. From brands such as Daniel Green to Jaques Levine, they’ve created everlasting looks to add elegance to your evening attire.
After looking at all these beauties, I was ready to start a massive slipper collection and become the “Fashionista of Slippers” but I had to come to my senses and curtail my appetite. However, I did decide on 3 pairs and was completely excited when I got them. Let’s start with the perfect pair of On-The-Go Travel Mates.
When I travel, I also bring my slippers, and this adorable pair with it’s matching case is an excellent choice. They are lightweight and hardly take up any additional space. They’re so compact you can even tote them in your purse.
They were like slipping on a pair of comfortable gloves. Extremely lightweight and perfect to wear while in the hotel room. The next pair are these Daniel Green vintage brocade beauties.
Just take a close look at this pair. Notice the gold lamé intertwined in the brocade pattern and the quilted inner sole. Yes, not only do these have a classic sophisticated look, but they are absolutely pure comfort. The Daniel Green Company has been manufacturing shoes since the late 1800’s and still today remain a leader in casual comfort bedroom slippers. You can read more of their history here and also order from their website.
And lastly, is my sexy kitten pair. With the feathery bow embellished with a vintage pendant, these will be my “special” occasion pair…. (wink-wink).
Talk about feeling giddy and ticklish inside, when I tried them on, you couldn’t tell me I wasn’t cute sashaying around the house! Aren’t they simply the sweetest pair? That soft pink and gold lamé is a perfect blend of romance and elegance slipper appeal. My high heel wearing days are over, so these add the comfort I wanted for a pair of boudoir beauties.
One last look before I go.
So tell me, what do you think of my “hot picks” of Vintage Slippers? Are you inspired to get a pair? If so, let me know.. I’d love to hear and see your picks. As always, Happy Hunting while you thrift your house into a home!
