UGG! (Read: Ugh!)

To all my adoring fans - I sincerely apologize for my absence.

However i do need to post something right this second - it's a fashion emergency.

What is the deal with Ugg Australia putting all their merchandise on back order? I'm just going out on a small tree limb here - but if I'm the CEO of Ugg Australia and it's getting close to the winter season (in most parts of the U.S.), wouldn't i want to be all stocked up with sheepskin, wool-lined boots??!!

Granted, the actual continent of Australia never dips below 50 degrees all year long, but that's no excuse - it is actually more of a reason to be ready for the sudden influx of online buyers from the good ol' US of A. If i was to buy my Uggs online they would arrive on December 17th. December 17th is fine for a girl who lives in California, or maybe the great state of Florida, but not Michigan, the state that actually receives SNOW in the winter months. Bearing December weather with no boots would be like going barefoot in the Arctic - I'm serious people (or i could be exaggerating).

Anyway, long story long, I did purchase a beautiful pair of Gray Paisley Uggs (See the large image above) this afternoon. However, i did not purchase the pair from Ugg Australia - and i will be receiving my beautiful sheepskin/wool works of art on November 8th.

P.S. After relaying the fashion emergency information to my father he calmly responded by saying "Aren't Uggs out of style?" - talk about getting called out by your own father.

P.P.S My response to dad's comment (and all Ugg nay-sayers for that matter) is "Uggs are eternally stylish, especially if you live in Michigan" (Am i right Em?).

Until next time...

I don't know. I'm still on the fence with this one. Especially when they are paired with skirts. Because I just don't get it. Or is that trend over?
They look really comfortable and warm though.

Ah yes, the old "Uggs & Skirts" argument. I'm not sure how to tackle this one. In my opinion, i do think wearing Uggs with a skirt is okay, if you are wearing leggings. However, if you're doing the bare leg think with brown colored boots - it looks odd.
