OK, sue me. I have been secretly praying this whole time that the smoking slipper would make a HUGE comeback. Against the holy gospel according to the Book of Stilettos, I even dropped the bomb on Trend friend, Kathryn and I swear I heard her gasp in horror when I mentioned my wish a few months back!

Well guess what suckahs? My wish has come true because they are BAAAAACK! The smoking slipper is here, fierce as ever, and my feet are officially off strike and on style (c'mon, sing it with me...)vay-cay-shun!

If you've been keeping up with me on Instagram, you've seen my goldies prancing around Vegas! While in Sin City this weekend for The Trend Tribe's Influencer Weekend, CUSP by Neiman Marcus,at Fashion Show Mall, pulled out all the stops, rolled out the red carpet, and then proceeded to spoil our Trendsetters like rockstars. Really. From beauty makeovers at Tom Ford, to goodie bags filled with Neiman Marcus brand nail polish + swag, jewelry from CUSP by Neiman Marcus, SUGAR tinted lip stain by fresh, Rose lip conditioner by AERIN, Oribe Shampoo & Conditioner,it was the best possible way to kick-off our time in Las Vegas...

And magic they were! Not only did the compliments keep coming from friends, strangers, and even shady lurkers on Instagram, I was getting pinged by everyone wanting to find out 'Where did I find that fabulous smoking slipper?' Another major plus? It is a fuller shoe. I wear an 8.5, so I was able to buy an 8.5.

No guessing, no games, the perfect fit! Many fashionistas I've chatted with have avoided entertaining the idea of purchasing the smoking slipper because of the narrow design; however the Sam Edelman is fashionable, full, AND super-duper-comfy. As in puffy clouds from heaven fluffy. C'mon... How many times have you walked around Las Vegas wishing you had the nerve to 'Pull a Britney'? This Sam Edelman smoking slipper is the answer.

"What happens in Vegas...NEVER happened."

4 am. Sunday morning. OK, so maybe it was a little Britney-ish.

What city should we rock the shoes next?
