I am OBSESSED with this product. I’ve had it open in a tab of my browser for a full week.
They’re called mahabis and they’re slippers with soles that you can clip on to turn them into shoes that you can wear outdoors!! It’s, like, the perfect thing for every apartment-dweller who’s trying to keep street dirt out of her home. Also perfect for nerds like me who can’t get enough of transformer clothing (I once had a fully inside-out-reversible skirt from J. Crew. It was amazing. And never mind those knit dresses that you can wear a zillion ways . . .). Plus, you get to pick your favorite base + sole color combo – they have blue and pink and yellow . . . how can you not want to collect them all?!
What do you think? Would you buy these?
To be frank, the only reason I haven’t yet is the price tag. I fell in love with these while I was looking at the price in euros (but without doing the conversion) and when I clicked over to US dollars I got sticker shock. Still, they seem pretty great . . .

This week I saw TWO great shows:
1. Big Love by Charles Mee at The Signature Theater. I think Signature does an outstanding job, Charles Mee’s plays have always been some of my favorites, and this production is superlative. This play manages to be serious and funny, deep and feel-good. Tina Landau’s direction is mind-bogglingly good.
2. The Human Symphony created and directed by Dylan Marron. This is the latest full-length/main-stage offering from The New York Neo-Futurists. Clever, Engaging, informative and charming. This show is a beautiful use and example of the Neo-Futurist aesthetic; it also manages to be truly experimental without evoking any of the negative connotations that the term “experimental theater” can sometimes conjure. It only runs ’till February 14th so hurry up with this one!
It is worth mentioning that both plays have extremely affordable tickets and that they actually, as it happens, make a nice pair. (Clicking the links above will take you to info and tickets for each show)
