So, let me start by saying that though it is absolutely nothing personal, I have a severe distaste for Uggs. I even happen to know some perfecly nice and otherwise reasonable people who own and love their Uggs. I understand the comfort factor. And I'm certain that there are several people who think my favorite Juicy Couture sweats are the ultimate fashion crime. And I respect that. But when I want to be comfy on an eight hour flight without showing up in my high school track team bottoms and my very faded UNCG long sleeve tee, I'm a Juicy girl all the way.
The other night we were walking home from dinner and passed by Kate Kuba, a cute shoe shop. I saw a pair of dark brown leather Uggs with brass-ish buckles (see below) in the window and said "Okay. There. Now I would totally wear those Uggs. Those are okay." To which Jason replied "Honey, those are what they call 'gateway Uggs'. Now step away."
Jason, I am eternally grateful to you for leading me away from the fashion equivalent of marijuana and thusly saving my fashion soul from eternal damnation.
However, I'm keeping the Juicys. I'll gladly risk my fashion soul for them.
P.S. Christmas photos (mostly of the cutest nieces ever) are coming soon. Just waiting on my mom to send me a couple of pictures...
