Please excuse my appearance -- these photos date from last week when I was still feeling dreadful.

Here are the results of the great slipper show down.

I ordered 3 pair of slippers/ house shoes to try.

I've already decided to keep the Merrell elf shoes. They are comfortable, supportive, and while definitely not "stylish," they are whimsical and very cozy.

I also ordered these Uggs that Parsley recommended. The quality is enough to cure me of my Ugg poison eye! (My poison eye is limited to the big slipper "boots" worn as outdoor boots in my climate -- with slush and salt.)

I really love these slippers, and I particularly love the bookending quality with my hair. Nice!!

(Can anyone find me a similar coloured pair of booties? Could be a good addition to my wardrobe, no?)

Alas, they are going back because they do not stay on my feet. This is my perennial problem with flats. Sigh....

I also ordered these smoking slippers from Ros Hommerson, which were on sale. These, too, flip off my feet, but an insole has helped to a large degree, and I think I am going to keep despite this drawback, because I really like the idea of a more festive, "fun" and "fashiony" shoe to wear indoors.

What do you think? Does this make sense?
