Today, a miraculous event in my life occurred. I was scrolling through Saks Fifth Avenue shoes online, and saw a link that had not previously registered in my mind – “smoking slippers.” I squinted my eyes, cocked my head to the side, and tapped the pad on my Macbook. Quite frankly, I was expecting furry thong sandals and other indoor shoes, but oh, was I wrong.
Behind this link lies a glorious selection of flats – every color, texture, and print you could imagine. I stand tall, around five feet eleven inches (on a good day), with unfortunately short friends. With the addition of a few – oops – pairs of smoking slippers, I will be able to wear a trendy, low heeled shoe without towering over girls and boys alike. As I hug my computer to my chest, I realize today is a day I will never forget.
