Here’s something you probably didn’t know about me: I have Raynaud’s.
In simplest terms, cold temperatures or stress can reduce blood flow to my extremities. When that happens, my fingertips may start to tingle or burn, but I primarily feel a Raynaud’s attack in my toes. I have to wear multiple layers of socks with my boots during the winter months because they quickly become numb. Even through my socks, my toes are typically cold to the touch.
Because of my Raynaud’s, warm slippers are a necessity. Luxurious slippers are, well, a luxury!
I recently had the opportunity to slip my size-10 feet into a pair of Jacques Levine shearling-lined velour slippers and instantly felt more chic than when I pad around the house in my oversized Ugg slipper knock-offs.
Heritage footwear brand Jacques Levine has been in the shoe business for more than 75 years. My grandmother used to wear a pair of their Spanish leather wedges, which, as a kid, I thought were the most glamorous slippers ever.
However, I think I’m of a Bel Esprit slipper-type, which were designed with a “witty or clever person” in mind. Fitting, don’t you think?
Bunny and Dolly’s third blogiversary celebration week wraps up with a Jacques Levine giveaway. One lucky reader will win a pair of luxuriously cozy Bel Esprit velour slippers in dark blue — just like mine!
