Favourite Slippers

Claire - tv says:

Do you have an all time favourite pair of slippers or does your taste and whim change over time. I know I have slippers for each season but I do have one or two pairs that i love to wear at any time of year and have done so for a long time

Do you have any favourites or just wear one pair at a time before replacing them?

I once had some all fur purple fluffies. Long fur, sheepskin. And about eight or nine years ago I used to buy open toe fluffy scuffs from Goldwool - I had a lovely custom pai in Burgandy, and quite a few other pairs as well.
These days I haveabout eight pairs of fluffy slippers - I think I could easily collect more but I am an addict for them and have to watch it.

For the summer I have ugg fluff-flip flops (wore them last yera in black) but I must say not so comfortable.

At the moment I wear full fur brown fluffy mules from Office in the mornings, and some open toe fluffy falties in the evenings

Hi william

I too have ugg boots and love wearing them with jeans. I also have ugg coquette slippers which i have been wearing during the winter. nice and warm but a little bit unflexible

I won't be wearing them much longer though as they are very warm

Hi

I love my Ugg boots - I also wear them with jeans and nylon knee high stockings underneath - usually I have been pulling my jeans over the top of the boots, but in the last few weeks have been tucking jeans into the boots, and yesterday got the courage to roll the top part of the boot down so that the fur shows.

The best ugg slippers I have had were the open toe flattie scuffs - I have had about six pairs and always nearly wore them out - they don't make them anymore. Loved them. Right now I ahve something similar from Bearpaw

Thta's what I thought about the coquette = expensive and probably not that comfortable - nice as shoes/clogs in the garden though?

For the summer I am thinking about buying some of the ugg flip-flops with fur on the soles but the strap is normal leather.

I have favourite pair I am scared to wear out, so they are my special 'I need cheering up' pair of slippers, then there are about five or six 'working' pairs, all gorgeous (I'd never buy anything I didn't like) but expendable. But it is always a sad day when a pair are consigned to the bin.

I agree , throwing out slippers is a terrible thing - but if I didn't do it my "slipper-life-work" balance would be out of control - my wardrobe would be full of slippers (and sandals)...I love shoping...I feel even having eight or so working pairs of slippers is eccentric for a man, this is probably much easier if you are female. On the other hand, why shouldn't I have so many pairs? I love wearing them!

You are both sooo right

i hate throwing out slippers but sometimes you just have too many pairs. However a nice well worn pair is sometimes too good to throw out. I have some which i have bought on a whim and don't wear too often so those are probably the ones I will have to move on soon. I have thrown out slippers before and really regretted it afterwards so I must be careful

I absolutely adore shopping and slipper shopping is one of my favourites.

I think its obvious that our femme side shows through in our love of shopping and owning many pairs. it is however a fairly harmless and realitively inexpensive interest. Sometimes a little embrassing when browsing and buying but thats ok

hugs

Claire, you are so right! Storage space is a constant problem, and I too have so many slippers that I just had to buy in that moment of weakness, but I so hate to part with them! Shopping for slippers is my favorite past time and finding a pair of pretty slippers to wear around the house makes me feel so wonderfully feminine.

My favorite slippers are those wonderful classic fluffy wedge mules from the 70's and 80's, that are so difficult to find these days.

I have a pair of striped slippers with embroidered butterflies that when the soles wear out (very soon, they are flat and fraying and don't fluff back up when washed) I will cut the top off and reuse in some crafty creation or other.

my favourite slippers are my traditional blue full collar rubber sole slippers from the eighties era, tho I am not averse to any style some of the open toe flats mules when worn with tights are special too as a lot of your pictures have proved, bit overall its the traditional 70s styles I prefer to see worn

I'm glad you enjoy my mules and tights, i have a pair of full fur blue slippers too, i think i have a couple of pics of me in them with black tights.

I definitely prefer mules, scuffs or just plain flats
