During a recent trip to New York City, I noticed a disturbing trend. I'd estimate that one in three women on the streets were wearing Uggs. Uggs. I wouldn't call myself the most stylish person on the planet. Before the birth of my 3 children, I had a hope and maybe a prayer of being in style. One of my co-workers once said my style resembled Jackie Kennedy O'nassis. I'm pretty sure she was a meth user though. I've never had the latest clothes or trendiest style but I was decently put together...at least before the kids came. After kids? Not a hope!
I was aware that these UGG boots were trendy but I really thought that was 3 or 4 years ago. Guess Im wrong. These boots were all over that city. I posted on Facebook a status that said, "So many Ugg boots in NYC...they are so Ugg!" Amazingly, 5-6 people responded. 2 of them have UGGs and LOVE Them! Interestingly, these two women all live in big cities (London and Boston.) Apparently Uggs are all about the pragmatic side, although 1 other women who posted on my status LOVES her Uggs and she lives here in Columbus where you go from a garage to a building with very little trekking through ice, snow and smog. I don't know. Uggs will run their course, right? Or will they win me over? Nope, not for $100 bucks or whatever crazy price they cost. Guess I'm just out of style...or am I old?
