Dressing Gowns and Slippers

Just a small sample of the collection

Australia is apparently having a love affair with the onesie at the moment and I don't just mean for babies.  Children, teenagers and adults around the country are embracing them with a passion.  While I don't quite get the fascination of the all in one fleecy suit, I do understand the passion for rather daggy but incredibly comfortable and warm clothing.  You see, S and I have something of an obsession with slippers and dressing gowns.

A quick mental count has revealed that between the two of us we own 7 pairs of slippers and 4 dressing gowns.  This may seem a little excessive, but given they are our clothing/shoe of choice at home we need a variety to cater for different levels of cold.  S can even layer some of his slippers although it isn't quite as necessary as it was when he lived in his freezing bachelor pad.

The minute we get home it is off with the regular shoes, on with the slippers.  And if we are going somewhere like my parents house (or even occasionally dance class) we do venture out of the house in them.  If I'm being brutally honest I must admit those pink ugg boots may even have been worn to the shops once or twice - oh the shame!

Sometimes I wonder if S and I are old beyond our years - or maybe just wise beyond our years.

So tell me, are we alone in our slipper obsession or do you share it and should we embrace the onesie?


  1. I only have one dressing gown, but at last count I had three pairs of slippers and a dozen pairs of wooly striped socks.

  2. I have slippers that Mr Bite always finds amusing. He just wears socks! He doesn't know what he's missing out on :P
