Inspiration Notebook: Smoking Slipper Flats - The Feminine Slipper

2-minute read

Feminine Slipper Poppy Barley

Introducing: The Feminine Slipper, a ladylike take on the smoking slipper and one of three new styles from our Spring/Summer 2013 Custom Flats Collection. Whether it’s a fancy brunch, a garden party, or an afternoon wandering the art gallery, this modern-day smoking slipper was carefully designed with style and comfort in mind. We make every pair of Poppy Barley ballet flats to your exact foot length and foot width measurements, accommodating sizes 5-13, and widths A-EEE.

Feminine Slipper

Colour block the heel in Peony and Metallic Gold leathers for something bright, light and summery, or mix a Metallic Gold and Black Python instead for some after-hours sizzle. Opt for something more casual with a full Robin Egg and fox head hardware in gold or silver; this your chance to design a flat that fits your lifestyle.

Feminine Slipper

Picture this: sparkling mimosas, tea biscuits and bowls of fresh fruit line white linen tablecloths as guests arrive in their Sunday finest—from flowing pastel skirts to polished, printed trousers. A ladylike twist on a Roaring ‘20s menswear trend, the padded insole, soft leather upper, and subtle scallop emerging from a pointed toe (hailing from a traditional smoking slipper) allow for long hours of wear, and with the guaranteed perfect fit, your feet will be sure to thank you.

Belt Measuring Guide

Belt Measuring Guide

A - High-rise style:

If you plan to wear your belt around your natural waistline, wrap a measuring tape around the narrowest part of your midsection. Then, add 3” to determine your high-rise belt size.

B - Mid-rise style:

If you plan to wear your belt lower than your natural waistline, you will require a dierent size. If you have a particular pair of bottoms you intend to wear your belt with, wrap a measuring tape through the belt loops while in a relaxed position.

When wearing your belt in your preferred style, it should fasten in the middle hole. The belt will relax with wear allowing you to cinch it tighter, as needed.

If you plan to wear the belt in both the high and mid-rise styles, you have two options:

  1. Select your high-rise style and fasten it more loosely when worn in the mid-rise style.
  2. Select your mid-rise style and fasten it more tightly when worn in the high-rise style.
