I was catching up with necolebitchie.com and came across a post about Beyonce (whom I would love to hate, but can’t seem to stop semi stalking ) and how she now enjoys wearing flats. I have to admit, until I moved to NY, I never thought flats were cool. My first teaching job in Texas, I was all heeled up baby. But NOW, after the NY sKKreets have brought me back to earth, I realize that flats could be the sexiest shoes on earth. Special shout out to my husband who has always been a flats advocate. Since my man likes to see a woman in a pair of sexy flats, I got this pair of Stubbs and Wootton velvet slippers from him for Christmas 2010. I was not super psyched about them at first. To be honest, when we went on Madison to get them, I was actually more focused on branching to the Louboutin store. By the way, no more loubs for me- but I digress, will discuss on another post.
I am so in love with my velvet slippers now. I wear them a lot and looking forward to another pair (not velvet this time, I would like the needlepoint (hint hint to Mr. Okubs).
They are comfy if you get the right size. I got a 38, but should have gotten a 38.5. Now, I have to wait for the them to stretch for the first 15mins after I put them on. You can also get your monogram on your slippers by the way.
Finally, a couple of people have asked me if they are Niyi’s shoes. I guess a lot of ladies don’t wear velvet slippers. I totally recommend it.
