Step into velvet this fall

Do you have your slippers for this fall? Make that your velvet slippers?

The loungewear staple is experiencing a full-on fashion moment right now, walking out of the boudoir and into the street.

The Man Repeller wrote about her love of the bedroom slippers back in March, and since then, I’ve seen them pop up here and there, including the Tom Ford boutique in Las Vegas and at Goodwill. Really.

Slippers found at Goodwill, just $3.49!

Velvet slippers and loafers are a welcome classically retro alternative to the ballet flat (which I abhor for a variety of reasons). They’re vaguely ironic, a bit unexpected and highly customizable and pricey if you go with lines such as Del Toro and Stubbs and Wooten.

Or live on the edge, take a chance and seek out vintage slippers or loafers at Goodwill. The pair I found just last week had never been worn and were just $3.49.

Thanks, Rachel! We want to know – who is going to slip into some velvet slippers this fall?
