The Uggs Controversy

When Uggs first became popular, I didn't get it. Uggs are hideous boots. They are these giant, odd-shaped things. I didn't see their appeal. It was made worse by the fact that little teeny boppers everywhere were wearing them. They wore Ugg boots all year round, sometimes with tiny shorts or miniskirts in the summer. Why, I don't know.

I had no desire to buy a pair of Ugg boots. I viewed them as a young fad. I openly judged people who wore them. Ack, I thought. Laura completely agreed with me on this. She doesn't like Ugg boots either.

Then something changed. I think I've changed my mind. I'm a big ol' hypocrite!!

My one friend has been trying to convince me that Uggs are great, not for fashion but for comfort. I voiced my skepticism, but the stubborn woman won't be deterred. She told me that I should try them.

I finally gave in. I tried them. And I think I am going to buy a pair. They are really comfortable and warm. I can throw them on with leggings, jeans or sweats. I am all about comfort and casual, and these definitely fit the bill. I'm going to the mall on Sunday to try them on again and make my decision. Eek. I have been boycotting them for so long. I don't know what happened. I did the same thing with leggings and now wear them all the time.

Laura doesn't like the turn of events. She's trying to convince me out of them. Hehe. She thinks they are too young for me. She will forever think of me as an old lady. I'll show her. I can't wait to rock my Uggs!

P.S. I should mention that I am always behind the curve when it comes to fashion. I have to let it stew for a while before I jump in. I am weird like that. =p

"Ugg or not to Ugg," that is the question. Just make sure you don't buy the cheapo kind, 'cause I've seen them and they ain't pretty after several wearings.

You're a cheapo kind. I got my Uggs today!! Yay!

Wait, which friend convinced you? I miss my comfy brown Uggs which I left behind :o( Girls wear them around here when it gets a tiny bit windy/rainy, but I just cannot do it. I want to scream at them... you think this is cold???!!!??

Laura said...

Oh dear.

Tara said...

Ness, you can wear your Uggs if you come back home!!

Dave said you can actually wear Uggs in warm weather. He said surfers wear them.
