Oh, there are so many things I can’t stand, it’s hard to pick just one. One thing that’s been a fad for a few years now that I will never understand is UGG boots.
I really hate these boots. I hate them so much it hurts me a little bit. Why do I hate them? Well, for starters, they look like the linings for real boots. And being in Ontario, when we get a real winter (which we did not this year), it’s cold and it’s wet. These boots may be comfortable but they don’t keep your feet dry.
Then those people who love these boots start getting on my case because apparently they are “fashionable”. No, no they are not – and anyone who tries to say otherwise is wrong. I’m not sorry to say that either. Because typically I see girls who wear these every day, will be wearing track pants and a slutty tank top with a sweater. Their hair will be on top of their head in a messy bun with no effort at all, yet they will cake their faces in an inch of make-up. That is not fashionable. It’s trendy, sure, but fashionable? No.
Maybe it’s what these boots represent to me that makes me so angry – the represent laziness but somehow also represents popularity. I don’t like laziness and popularity mixing, I think people should be rewarded for hard work, and part of hard work is being professional. You can’t wear uggs to a job interview, you’ll most likely not get the job.
I have friends who wear uggs, and please don’t be offended – besides, you know how vocal I am so really, you’ve probably heard this rant before.
Wow, first day of 30 Days of Blogging Honesty and I’m already ranting? I guess you’ll have to show up tomorrow to see what else I’ll rant about.
