stasia-slippers.jpgA pair of slippers under the Christmas tree would probably go down like a lead balloon around here, and most likely end up gracing the shelves of the nearest charity shop before Twelfth Night was out. We don't really do slippers: something about the unashamed cosiness of it all just...crosses a line.

But we'll make an exception for these lovely, decorative house-shoes by Stasia, which combine comfort and style in an elegant and dignified way that's acceptable even to shoe snobs like us! They make great gifts, and unlike many hand-made slippers, these will not break the bank.
