Often dressed in satin or sheer lingerie, beaded jewelry, even hula skirts, wine bottles have been expressing themselves fashionably for several years now. Carrie and Company, tableware designer, has seen to it that stemware too can keep in step with the times, in fashionable shoes ... yes, for stemware feet.
With a true flair for footwear, Carrie and Company's Drinkwear is ready for summer with its flip flops, sandal platforms, and sports footwear, like tennies and swim finns for stemware. Others might call Drinkwear "traveling coasters." They do follow your drink everywhere it goes, and their foam-built construction nicely absorbs spills; but they are so cleverly and beautifully designed, no doubt their classy style will the target of shoe envy. Cinderella's out there can relax though; even if your feet are only 4.5 inches long, Drinkwear only makes shoes for the right foot.
