dievca had a large project to complete by 11:59 PST – she made it and slept in to 6:30 am this morning. Watching the dawn break across the city is a cozy experience. she’s wearing the fourth rendition of inexpensive Afghan Slipper Socks and thinking of her family.
dievca bought three pairs from Pier One in college as gifts for her Mom, her Aunt and herself. She wore out her pair, wore out her Aunt’s pair (taken when her Aunt died from Cancer) and wore out her Mom’s when Mom could no longer wear them because of slipping.
A 30 year process.
Pier One stores have closed and the J. Crew rendition ripped in the heel after 3 years. dievca didn’t know where to get her next pair of slippers…until she looked on Etsy!
Back to the OG!
In a year where some people didn’t have a lot of touches,
a hug in cashmere might not suffice – but its a start.
This limited-edition piece is designed by British illustrator Angelica Hicks.

Which option would you choose?
Entangled in the sheets.
Enmired in the depths.
Soft fabrics, cozy temperatures,
I won’t emerge soon.
10.5 hours and I’m still reading in bed….my coffee craving will kick me out.
