I started googling images of Uggs and this article from the Daily Mail popped up. Hilarious.
I see women wearing Uggs all over Charlotte and they do look like they have Happy Feet. But being a realistic shopper if you wore those outside right now as our ice turns to slush won't your feet get wet? In the 9" of snow my parents received over Christmas wouldn't they just get soaked? Do your feet sweat? Do you wear socks just to make sure you don't get foot smell? Do they look like a fancier pair of Snooki slippers?
I have never wanted a pair. I'm an LL Bean boot kinda girl and have Wellies for snow. Not exactly warm but throw in a pair of awesome wool socks and you are golden.
HOWEVER....being 7 months pregnant and cold and large and irritable has made me rethink the Uggs. And now? They look like HEAVEN. I have seen two pairs on friends lately. My friend had an ornament swap and she had a cute attendee in a brown dress, brown tights and uggs..and it was completely adorable. This same friend then came over for dinner last week and had on a gray pair with jeans...again completely stylish. And I have to say that my frozen toes in ballet flats were slightly pissed at me for questioning the furry shoes in the first place.
If Reese wears them it must be okay!
