divine inspiration

The inspiration for today’s post came from an unusual source: Pope Benedict XVI. After he announced his resignation earlier today, I spent some time researching his sartorial habits (I don’t usually pay much attention to papal fashion, I admit) and stumbled across his well documented penchant for red smoking slippers.

they thought the pope wore Prada, but the Vatican denied that these were vintage designer shoes back in 2006

Well, it just so happens that if you fancied getting yourself a pair of red smoking slippers – and I’m talking about properly stylish ones, not old bloke religious-y ones – you’d certainly not have any trouble. Here are my favourites available at the moment.
