A long awaited rant….
I was on the tube today and in my section alone 7 out of 10 women were wearing them!! What the UGG! The clue is in the brand name for sure. I tell you why I can’t stand them; they look cheap, are shapeless, unattractive and oh so common!
When, on any other occasion would any style-conscious woman buy boots in sandy biege?! Yes I said beige; don’t give me all that “they are chestnut” nonsense. The signature colour is sandy beige that in itself is one of the biggest fashion footwear crimes of the noughties, in fact ever! What the UGG! So many usually stylish folk have fallen victim to one of the most successful marketing campaigns of the decade. I take my hat off to the makers for that and that only.
And don’t get me started on the cream fluffy lining. Are they not a remake of the 70’s sheepskin coat in the form of a boot? I’ve googled a picture below for your viewing pleasure...Ummm!
Fashion/able they maybe but style/ish they ain’t! People - please don’t be sheep (pardon the pun) find your own unique fabulous pair of Autumn/Winter boots that tick all the boxes for practicality, fashion and style. There are many gorgeous alternatives please see below (from my own collection).
Black Gianni Melani fur-lined bling detail
Purple Pompili patent and rabbit fur
Maybe I am the only woman on the planet who hates them and will NEVER own a pair but trust me you devotees out there, if in time there is any photographic evidence or memory of them being worn, you will look back, cringe and say to yourself and whoever’s listening “What the UGG was I thinking!?! Those boots were sooo UGGly!!!
That rant felt good! I am indeed ready for the backlash…UGG devotees bring it on ;)
