Babouche Babouche

Have you noticed? The babouche is back in a big way.

Maybe you saw it coming too… I happened to purchase a few pairs from a very random vendor in Paris last September (the ones from The Floral Edit!). I don’t know why, but I looked in the shop and it just felt right. Like the babouche was calling my name…

Brie….you love an easy shoe that is basically a slipper…. come hither!

And so I did. But I noticed afterwards that they were all over the Spring 16 shows! And now they’re hitting stores – just in time for everyone to enjoy in the slide making life easier… It’s easier to take my shoes off at the airport, easier to put on actual slippers at the office (yes, we all have LL Bean slippers and they are amazing), and easier to throw them on when you’re in a hurry. Which is always.

Plus their pointed toe is elegant – it elongates the leg without having to actually wear heels. And over at Studio Doré, no one says no to comfort. Maybe I’m an oddball for liking these – but perhaps its finally time we come to terms with the very lax way of living… in slippers.
