The Penelope Chilvers Dandy Slipper
Behold the Penelope Chilvers slipper shoe, truly a thing of great comfort and joy. Handmade by Spanish artisans, too. Whilst we wait for Jeremy Hunt to go and spend more time with his family, and the rain to stop (funny, eh? It's been like One Hundred Years Of Solitude ever since the government announced a hosepipe ban), let's unwind with some luxurious, grown-up loungewear. You can't beat easy chic. I love a multitasking item that works both day and evening, indoors and out. My goal is to embrace 24-hour style, to cultivate a go-anywhere look. And, in that parallel universe where I can afford expensive things - apparently Penelope Chilvers is making a pair of boots for the Duchess of Cambridge - I'd be lolling around like Loulou de la Falaise...
back in the good old days at Yves Saint Laurent's Moroccan joint. Wearing my dandy slippers with harem/palazzo pants and a simple t-shirt. Or a maxi skirt and slinky jersey top. Might even throw on a kaftan.
Time to plan another holiday, I think (just need to pay off the credit card first) and somewhere that's not in the Eurozone makes good financial sense. Probably pick up a pair of slippers on the cheap too.
