One by one, celebrities are starting to reveal the skeletons they’ve got in their (shoe) closets: the Mara & Mine “Jem Skull” slippers, which are really nothing to be ashamed about at all.
It’s the complete opposite, in fact; owning a pair of the hot-to-have Mara & Mine slippers makes one the object of envy. Proud owners include Abbey Lee Kershaw and Julianne Hough, who have taken to Twitter to show off what they call their latest shoe obsession.

It’s amazing how Mara & Mine designers Tamara Ingham and Jasmine Yarbrough were able to turn skeletons — a very much overused and abused fashion design element — into something fresh, highly coveted, and distinctly recognizable once again.
These Mara & Mine Jem Skull slippers feature skeleton embroidery that make the wearer’s feet look as if they’re being x-rayed.

As expected, these are sold out everywhere. If you can wait, Mara & Mine are fast working on having the next shipment available by the end of July.
While waiting, check out these other Mara & Mine shoes that feature more of the designers’ reinterpretation of skeletons:

Now, who wouldn’t want skeletons in their closets when they’re as fashionable as these?
