I mean, as if we haven’t been spending enough time at home already, it looks like we could be headed for a long winter of semi-quarantine. Luckily for me, I loaded our shelves up with slippers for fall. We have all types this year. My personal favorite are the slides from Mou. I have mentioned this before, but I purchased a pair a few years back at Betsey Fisher. Alicia called me and insisted I get these slippers. I think of anything I own I get the best price per wear for my Mou slippers. Both of my children try to steal them, and I lose my mind if I can’t find them. I know people have this same affinity for Ugg slippers. It is difficult to explain why I love them so much, but I do.

We have cute booties from our new loungewear line, Skin and slides from the line that invented cozy at home, Barefoot Dreams.

The second delivery of ROAM has also just hit our shelves. The first two styles (adorable fur slides) are gone, but we are happy to have new styles and we have a holiday order coming later this month. ROAM shoes are two things: an athletic slide or a slipper. You can usually use them for either, depending on the fabric and your willingness to wear them outdoors. Made of memory foam, the founder wanted shoes that were exceptionally made, supportive, and fashionable. Kay Sides, the founder, is a lifelong avid athlete and adventurer and wanted a shoe that could help her keep up with her busy and versatile life – sound familiar?

We all might not be moving around the world right now like these shoes were originally made for, but they will keep us comfortable at home and looking great when we head outdoors, even if it is just to walk the dog.

All these slippers make the perfect gift and there is a style for every person on your list!


  • The latest from Elizabeth
I spent the first part of my career as a copy-writer who helped elected officials brag about their support for entrepreneurs. Then I decided to get off the printed page and do it myself. The Shoe Hive made a splash on the fashion scene in Washington, and was named the region’s best shoe store in its first year. Fourteen years later, I have tripled the store’s size and also opened a sister store, The Hive. At The Hive, we offer clothing lines that are sophisticated and approachable like Rag & Bone, Tibi, Raquel Allegra, Ulla Johnson and Veronica Beard. We have tried to fill our racks with clothing you will want to wear all the time, elevated basics that are worth the investment.

Heard the buzz? The Shoe Hive & The Hive are a pair of luxury boutiques in Old Town Alexandria. Featuring both big name designers like Rag & Bone and Stuart Weitzman and smaller brands like AGL and L'Agence, our unique selection and impeccable service are what set us apart.
