From Old Guard To Avant Garde

While on vacation with my family last month,
I stopped into the Stubbs & Wootton boutique.

I own several pairs
of this classic Stubbs & Wootton wedge.
{in varying heel heights + colors}

But, 
the Stubbs & Wootton label
is really known best for this preppy staple.
{These are not really my style.}

And yet,  I couldn't help but
browse the endless selection of embroidered and
needlepoint slippers available.

And, that's when I spied these!

WHAT?!
At which point, I realized that perhaps this
old school staple was looking to shake things up a bit!


So...browsed around a bit more,
with a renewed sense of curiosity, and then saw THIS.
I love this blue needlepoint weekender!
It's like Mary Poppins meets Private Benjamin.
and
{Doesn't it sort of remind you of this?}

Don't forget...GIVEAWAY!
{it's still going on}

  5. You need that little love-seat...perhaps in shades of grape and aubergine. I can think of a couple of times I would have loved to have been wearing those whimsical slippers...outside of the house!
