After an unfortunate incident that centered around stepping in something unpleasant, my trusty old Ugg slippers went sayonara.
I thought I scored the deal of the century when I ordered these beauties for half price:
Until they never arrived and an inquiry showed me that Ugg canceled my order due to running out of stock.
They just forgot to tell me.
Back to ground zero.
Ever impractical, I selected style over function and ordered these:
Here’s a top view:
These are as cute as they look.
Two problems, though: the steep price tag makes me nervous about spilling things like coffee (read: red wine) on the pom poms, and the exposed toes are just not cutting it for Minnesota winters, when I often run outside for quick errands like taking out the garbage, getting the mail, etc.
I needed a back up plan.
If you haven’t shopped at 6PM.com, you’re missing out. I *think* this is where unsold merchandise from Zappos goes to die, and with diligence you can find phenomenal bargains. I’ve also had huge success on some occasions in finding a item from a season or two ago that I loved but is no longer available.
Searching for slippers led me to these:
These blush pink suede Minnetonka slippers were only $24.99. Full retail is $34.95, so even without a discount, these are an absolute bargain. They’re comfortable, non-skid, warm and completely solve my open toe problem.
6PM.com has about a dozen other pairs of Minnetonka slippers, all well-priced.
