|Slippers by Stubbs and Wootton|
In the spirit of switching things up I've decided to create this new fortnightly segment. 'Lusting after...' will detail those items sending metaphorical chills down my spine. The first, is the very regal Prince Albert Velvet Slipper originally worn by landed gentlemen. Apparently, they reserved use for formal occasions to be worn by the host exclusively. Today they come in a wider array of designs and are worn casually. Some websites allow for a bespoke handmade slipper including a personal monogram and your own choice of lining. Of course such opulence comes at significant cost, so it seems I'll be lusting after them for some time to come.
