Faux Pas: Shearling Innoculation

Dec 2, 2010

Uggs are the disease.  CHS is the cure. But it doesn’t have to go that far. 

You too can stop the spread of shearling.  Fight back with Uggcitrin.*

*Uggcitrin may cause you to become more fashionable and less frumpy.  It may also cause your husband/fiance/boyfriend/girlfriend to become more amorous when you enter a room.  And in rare cases it causes a noticeable rise in stylishness which may be dangerous to companies who sell shearling, velour track suits, dishwasher safe footwear or paisley printed tote bags.

These statements have not been endorsed by the CFDA.

    Love. I noticed on my walk to work today that the shearling menace was out in full force. Some people have more money than taste. You could buy classy hunter boots and two pairs of dreamy warm hunter socks for the price of those horrible Uggs. Waterproof, warm, supportive, and chic.

    Also, what you said awhile ago about bad 'ankle posture' is so true.

    When I see the Ugglies out, I hope beyond hope that they're just commuting in them. Maybe? Just maybe? Sigh…

    Can you do an Ugg-alternative post? An Intervention if you will.

    I have, and love, a pair of Uggs. I promise I only wear them while commuting or walking my dog. 1- It's freaking cold outside. I'm from the South and was not made for this kind of weather. I wear flats for my commute during the summer, but thats just not going to cut it when its snowing. Sorry world. 2- It's better than tennis shoes and a skirt, right? I put them under my desk as soon as I walk in and put them on only to head home. There are worse crimes, no?
