It was so much fun to hear about your signature style items. The winner of the incredibly awesome purple silk skull scarf is… Nicole! Send me your address, N, and you’ll get the scarf directly from crystal j. silk. Everyone else, check out the etsy shop and pick out something for yourselves–there is seriously cute stuff there.
Muk-Luks-Image.JPG This week, I’m showcasing an accessory that was part of the Violet in Private book party gift bags: Muk Luks! While I love the look of a stiletto, I can’t be wearing those all the time! Muk Luks were launched as slipper sox in 1972, and recently they’ve been re-vamped, re-styled and re-introduced. And, I’m wearing the ones I got in my gift bag constantly. I have a weird thing where my feet are always cold, but not anymore.
So, remember that you can win the full gift bag, including Muk Luks, by entering The Big Contest (rules here). Deadline is Sept 1st.
And the way to win a pair of Muk Luks this week is by commenting here and telling me when you’d wear your Muk Luks. I’m enjoying wearing them while writing. Then I can go out and get the mail and meet the UPS guy without being barefoot but without being totally “shoed.”
Happy Wednesday!
PS-You can still try for copies of Violet in Private on these sites:
1. Tera Lynn Childs’ blog (check all days–she’s having major contests!)
2. Seventeen Magazine
3. Read, Read, Read
PPS-Thanks to Carmen Alexis, who won Linda Gerber‘s Violet series contest, for the reviews of Violet on the Runway, Violet by Design and Violet in Private!

    Hahaha, I’d wear them around my friend’s dorm… its always FREEZING in there and my toes one day shall turn into icicles and I’ll be forced to cut them off! [gasp]
    Okay…probably not that far, but close enough… seriously tooo cold in there… I can’t imagine the room if the air conditioning was set to high!

  2. Lenore says:

    Those are soooo cute I would wear them everywhere!

    I’m guessing I’m a bit older than the average commenter, but I couldn’t resist this one…
    My two-year-old daughter’s favorite book (Mama, Do You Love Me? by Barbara Joosse) tells the story of an Inuit little girl testing her mother’s love for her by doing various naughty things. In the end she finds that her mother’s love for her is unconditional, but not after she has put “lemmings in her mukluks.” :)
    So, I’d wear those mukluks while snuggling up with my daughter and encouraging a lifetime love of reading.

  5. Tempestt says:

    I think they are so cute, I would wear them while I’m reading at home. For some reason I am always cold, lol, so these would come in handy!

  6. Liv says:

    Oh my gosh, I love those! I’d wear them pretty much everywhere; around the house, errand running, perhaps even at school, because they are just that cute. Lovey!

  7. Irene says:

    Taking out the trash, definetly. I usually do that barefoot

  8. jocelyn says:

    I’d wear them ALL winter. My feet are always cold from about October to April, freezing cold, and so I need these!

  9. mari says:

    So cute.
    I would wear them at work. It is hard to be in dress shoes all day at school (prek teacher). In the classroom these would be perfect. My co-teacher brings house shoes. I would be so much cooler in these. :)

  10. Cyndi says:

    I would wear them all winter! I tend to venture down into the garage a lot and it’s so cold down there. It would be nice to have them on, so my toes don’t freeze to death. :D

  11. Grace L says:

    These are so cute! I’ve never heard of muk luks but I love them!! I would wear them everywhere: parties, school (especially during the winter–I have zero period and I wake up at 5:30 in the morning to get ready and my house doesn’t have a heating system so it is super freezing when I wake up!!), around my house etc etc.

  12. i agree with Grace (wow, no way, i actually know her!). i have a zero as well, and i dont like my feet to be cold. it’s a rather unpleasant sensation. the muk luks look very warm and comfy :D

  13. M&A says:

    I will be rocking my Muk Luks on every ground I step on! Except at home or else my mom will throw at fit, especially if my Muk Luks been ‘rocking’ out in my backyard. You see my mommy is a neat freak to the extreme, I mean this lady had sanitation wipes with her ALL the time (even when going to weddings, why would you need them then?? tissues I understand but sanitations wipe??)
    Oh sorry got sidetracked there. SO yeah what grounds will I be rockin’ them will consist of a trip to my shoe obsessed friend’s house. She has like 50 gazillion pairs of shoe, some or even imported from Europe!

  14. Diana Dang says:

    I would wear them around fall time for sure! It would look so stylish!

  15. yessenia says:

    i would wear them all winter! okay not every single day of winter but most winter days for sure to keep my feet comfy and warm especially since in my school there are no hallways!! there’s just these fences and walkways it’s nice but they are not covered up so we feel the cold when we walk from class to class these would really come in handy : )

  16. Ali says:

    Being from Massachusetts, the winter get’s freezing! I’m always looking for cute cozy shoes to wear around, and sometimes you just get tired of wearing around basic slippers and Uggs. I would wear Muk Luks around the house, or maybe even around outside and to school in the fall. They looks super comfy, and they’d be great for me to wear into the basement, whether I’m down there doing laundry, playing the ever so popular Guitar Hero, or watching new episodes of One Tree Hill and Gossip Girl (can’t wait for them to start up!) with my friends!

  17. Tasha says:

    I would totally wear these around my dorm, because it’s freezing and my feet would be covered without me having to worry about slipping across the floor!! And of course, they look sooo cute and cozy.

  18. I’ve never owned any Muk Luks, but I gotta admit, they’re pretty cute. I could definitely troll around the house this winter (i.e. round about Thanksgiving) in these.

  19. Manya says:

    So great. I would wear these everywhere! I need some sort of winter crocs, and these look perfect. Comfortable and warm! I want them!

  20. Alex says:

    I would wear them after swim practice. The season goes through November, but I don’t want to have to drag these enormous boots to school. I’m wet, I’m freezing, I’ll just slide on my Muk Luks. They’d also be great for walking around those cold swim meets. Who wants to wear flip-flops there? Brrrr.
