Looking for fashion advice? Take a seat, you’ve come to the right place.
I was re-reading some old blog posts today and I happened on this one from February 2017. in which I suggested (in a spirit of irony) that I keep my ugg boots for a bit longer in case they came back into fashion. And what was I wearing today, at the very moment of reading my own sage advice? Why, my ugg boots. That’s what!
They narrowly escaped a one way trip to the op shop soon after that post was written. They got all the way to the box by the front door before I relented and put them back at the bottom of the wardrobe. And boy am I glad I did. The next time I came across them was earlier this winter while rummaging for an outfit to wear to a masquerade ball. No, I didn’t wear them to the ball (can’t believe you asked), but I did decide I quite liked them again. So snuggly warm, and just the thing to visually balance out skinny jeans, or in my case jodhpurs.
Well, no sooner had I started wearing them than I’m seeing ugg boots pop up everywhere. Clearly my fashion sense is inspiring a trend. Look at this. A whole article on rich and famous people homing in on my ugg boot vibe.
Mine were bought from The Red Shed for $19.99, somewhere back in the 2000’s, and as you can see, are brought right up to the minute here by being paired with my ‘bunny-wabbit’ pyjama pants (Hospice Shop, 2019, $1). Awesome no?!
P.S. I think, given my fashion forward track record, you can expect to be seeing many of the rich and famous in ‘bunny-wabbit’ pyjama pants by 2020.
What’s your favorite snuggly warm winter attire? Do you own anything you almost gave to the op shop that you’re glad you didn’t? The comment box is open.
