If loving these is wrong, then I don’t wanna be right

Everyday I open my Comcast mailbox to check my mail.
Everyday there is a shopping sidebar with boots, jeans and handbag categories.
Everyday I only give it a passing glance, if that, and move on.
Everyday it shows the same pictures of the same items.

But today was different.

For some odd reason – maybe it’s because the Moon is in the upper left quadrant, between New and third quarter, so the phase is waning crescent (or something like that) – but my eye lingered on that column today, and I found myself strangely drawn to these:

Ack! I hate UGGS. Or so I thought… I’ve been repulsed and repelled by them for years now and have been perfectly satisfied with my repulsion of all things UGG. But something about these drew me in and took hold of me and won’t let go. I can’t imagine actually wearing that sweater-type material anywhere where there is really snow (Think ugly acrylic sweater getting soaked in water). But since I live in the part of the country that seems to split snow-storms in half and never sees so much as a spittle of snow, I think they’d work. (And yes, I know they are made out of wool and not acrylic)

I think I am more in like with the Dusty Rose. The beige is a little too beige for me.

This is all a pipe dream. First of all, they are back ordered and secondly, they are $139.95 (Just add the extra .05 to the price people! You’re not fooling anyone into thinking they are saving anything.)

On top of it all, I went to the UGGS site to link to it above, and found out they made these too:

I think these would be appropriate for wearing while I ride our thoroughbred horses out on our country home. In England.

And then these:
Perfect for walking the streets of Aspen or Breckenridge while doing some power shopping.

You know I am kidding.
There is no way I could ever ever ever ever justify paying $500.00 for a pair of shoes.
And I don’t have horses.
Or a country home in England.
And the closest I’ve been to Aspen is driving along Interstate 70, through Colorado.

But listen up, UGGs People. This little lady, with a humble little blog would gladly review a lovely pair of your boots for you! I’m sure I’ll garner waaay more attention for you than that little unknown who had them on some obscure Favorite Things list of her’s.

Do you hear me!?!?

  1. While these do look warm and cozy, I still can’t get past the fact that they looks like slippers!

    O.k., UGGS people, let Karla review a pair! I don’t care for Oprah anyway so her Favorite Things list means nothing to me!

  2. Awww you don’t have a country house in England?? (I’m English) I was going to pop round for a cup of tea and a ride on your lovely horses.

    I love those boots and the warm slipper-huggy boots (or whatever) look soooo cosy!

    Lol, what is power shopping?

    Enjoying your blog :)

  3. Funny, funny!

    And although Mrs. Fussypants says that Uggs are ughhly, I spoted a thin blonde wearing them with tight jeans, and I did think the boots made her legs look even slimmer.

    Amazingly, those first ones ARE kinda cute…

  5. Sarcastic Mom says

    That last pair made me think of Mary Poppins.

  6. Your the 2nd post today that has made me want to go buy new boots.

  7. LOL!!! I am having a love/hate relationship with UGGs at the moment. This morning I returned my knockoffs. And then I saw a lady who looked great in a pair and started to have return remorse. But alas. The deed is done. I’ve got to move on.

    I hope the UGGs People hear your plea and respond accordingly! ;-)

  8. Waaaah! It’s been forever since I’ve popped in for a visit and my first day back what do I see? Boots!

    While I confess that I don’t have the same attraction for UGGs of any kind, that last pair bears a remarkable resemblance to a pair that made MY favorites list! (-_^)

    I have a growing boot-love thing going on these days. Check out my two absolute favs:

    Not your usual Doc Martens – http://tinyurl.com/339qkx

    My ‘badgirl’ boots – http://tinyurl.com/2qlj6j

    My blog’s hasn’t been updated in forever…I’ve been more busy with Facebook these days. :)

  9. I haven’t bought a pair of Uggs yet -I have never really liked them (but I have to admit they look cozy). But those first ones kind of caught my attention. Hmm…

  10. ~Babychaser~ says

    Very funny! I enjoyed both fashion posts! I would love a pair of boots too. (Of course I shop Payless and haven’t found any that I love yet.) I have this perfect denim skirt than just calls for a pair of brown knee high boots with heel. Sigh… someday! :)

  11. I love, LOVE nice footwear, too. LOOOOVE.
    And really, buying good boots works out because buying cheap boots means I have to buy 1 1/2 pairs of boots a winter. That’s not economical!

  12. Keara @ Now I Know... says

    Usually I don’t like Uggs at all… but I think those are kinda cute! :)

    I LOOOOVE me some Uggs. I live in Northern Michigan and have my own pair of sweater boots in a lovely black. They have a thicker/higher sole to keep the snow off the fabric. Or try to anyway. We get alot of snow here.
