You know those cute pink Uggs floating in my blog Wednesday? Where the meme question was "Something you're not wearing?" and I answered "Uggs"?
I'm wearing them today.
I've had a pair of black suede Uggs for years, and I love how warm and comfy they are, and how much traction they have on ice. Something got me started looking at the new ones, with all the lovely colors. And then I discovered this "cardy" style, knit from a merino wool blend. Giant sweater sox with sheepskin inserts and rubbery soles. Not meant for puddles or the coldest of our weather--but then, neither are my unlined leather high-heeled boots.
Yesterday, I decided I HAD to have them. In pink (if you're going to be impractical, may as well go all the way). Ordered them online from Zappos at about 4 p.m. They arrived at 4 p.m. today! And with free shipping!
With suede Uggs, you can wear them straight up or rolled over. With these, you have a third choice--slouched, as in the top left photo. And a fourth, really, because if you roll them over you can unbutton them. Wow, endless possibilities!
