When Grey Gardens Met Gucci

OK, I really, really, really wanted to find a store in Los Angeles that carries these furry numbers, Gucci's new Princetown Horsebit Fur Slippers, but there are none (it could be the fact that it’s currently 95 degrees) and they’re not being released for a couple of months. The recent Gucci collection, by new Creative Director Alessandro Michele, was lauded by French Vogue for its “exquisite eccentricity” and I couldn’t agree more. While I’m not really in the “two grand for a pair of slippers” market and I could totally mock these...I WON’T, because they’re just so deliciously ridiculous…I could happily shuffle around my living room and into the outside world embodying the vibe of a chic, slightly deranged maven! Their Swiffer-ing benefits are also not lost on me.

Available for pre-order from the Gucci site: $1,800

 Did I mention these are made of goat hair? Who doesn't want to be closer to goats?

 I don’t know why this model is not grinning from ear to ear!
