What’s your opinion on slippers? To me, they’re super important. Working from home for so many years, I’ve spent countless working hours wearing slippers. Not to mention, you know, leisure time. So I’d say good house shoes are a must and an investment. Here are some options for handmade slippers, if you’re looking to buy or gift:
One | Bunny slippers by Pracownia Uroczyzsko. These are the cutest things you could wear when coming home after a long day.
Two | Felt slippers by Onstail. The neon inner part makes these felted slippers look cool and modern.
Three | Shearling slippers by MRDline. These are just the type of house shoes I like to wear: super, super warm and cozy.
Four | Cat slippers by Jurga Felt Life. I mean, they have cats, what other selling point does one need?
Five | Socks by Knitten Mum. I realize these are socks, but they’re awesome and you can wear whatever you want at home.
Six | Slippers by Skapin. You could easily step outside with these bad boys, and no one would realize you’re in slippers.
Mod days were absolutely fascinating! Fashion houses like Pierre Cardin, which I’d now describe as conservative, were going over the top with the geometries, synthetic fabrics, and futuristic garments. But I guess we’re lucky to be living in times when you can recreate anything from the past (see below). Plus we can get away with wearing anything we want.
Get the look: Modcloth dress + Topshop shoes + Virivee tights

This photography for this lookbook (by Alasdair McLellan) manages to perfectly capture the beauty and gloominess of autumn. It’s sunny, but it’s cold, and the model looks amazing in all the cozy knits and textures. The lookbook shows Margaret Howell‘s collection for this fall, and it’s a beauty. I love the subtle layering, the midi skirt with masculine shoes, the outerwear. And what do you know, the model has my ideal hairstyle! You can see (and shop) all the pieces here.
Sundays are for sleeping in late, and staying in bed an extra half an hour just for Instagram. So while you’re scrolling and double tapping and working your emoji magic, you might need some new accounts to follow. My suggestion this week: @Fiona_LovesToCook.
She posts her fun, colorful meals and recipes of Asian cuisine, and I rarely not heart them. She has the cutest dishes, and the green leaves that she always uses as props are such a lovely touch! You might also want to follow if you’re into stamps and stationery… Just sayin’!

Dear cat ladies, dear Halloween enthusiasts, this one is for you. And it’s literally what the title says, 13 pictures of my black cat, Lizzi, who currently resides in Romania. These are from maybe five years ago, and still some of my favorites. I miss that sucker.
Here’s one last marvels roundup for this month, before it quickly dissolves into Halloween and November and all the holidays after that… Happy weekend!
