What I Wore Wednesday: Silver Sequin Slippers

So this isn't going to be your typical What I Wore Wednesday post but I hope you will bear with me. Last Monday my Mom had open heart surgery and had her aortic valve replaced with a new bovine valve.  She was born with a defect where instead of having three flaps, she only had two or bicuspid and after 60 years it was just really over-worked and narrowed and basically needed an upgrade. 

So she headed off to Cedars Sinai and got her new valve.  The surgery went great and she's now home and has 8+ weeks of recovery ahead of her. Well what does all of this have to do with What I Wore Wednesday? For her surgery she got herself some new slippers:


silver sequin slippers

It should be known that when I got married my mom was on crutches with a broken foot and on one foot was the boot and the other a Manolo Blahnik---she loves her shoes.  So it makes sense she got some sparkly slippers. What makes these slippers even better is that she got the idea from a nonagenarian named Sylvia at my Grandmother's nursing home.  Bitch stole Sylvia's look! (please tell you y'all watch fashion police).

She won't be rocking Manolos any time soon but she's still got stylish tootsies! I'm gutted I can't go to California to help her recuperate but I hope she knows how many people love and care about her and want her to get well soon!

Hope you mom gets better soon. I went through a similar situation late last year with my dad and it's hard when you can't fly there and be with them.
