I Still Wanna Wear My UGGs

According to a story in the New York Daily News, UGG Australia - and other reasonable facsimiles - are bad for my feet. Say it isn't so. How can these warm, comfy flats be dangerous to the skin on my soles. Apparently the warm furry, shoes are a breeding ground for germs and since UGGS are made from thick sheepskin, the boots don't get a chance to breathe. That means the athlete's foot you may have contracted and gotten rid of last winter may still be living in them. Oh No! I haven't met a boot more comfortable then UGGs. And I need them now, especially in this post-snow freezing cold weather. I'm gonna try spraying the insides of my boots lightly with a bleach solution. Maybe this will kill harboring nasties. I just love my UGGs too much to give them up. Would this make you stop wearing UGGs?

About this blog

I’m a Libra so I’m all about pretty things. We of the scales sign know what we like, and our standards are high.

So I can’t help but love fashion – one day I will get that Diane von Furstenberg wrap and those Christian Louboutin shoes.

And fragrances? My favorite right now is Chanel Mademoiselle. As for makeup, can we say MAC?

So let’s thank the Greek goddess of beauty, Aphrodite, that a true fashionista can find everything she needs right here in Philly.

I’ve covered fashion here for six years, and I have traveled to New York, Los Angeles and Paris to write about local and national designers. Let me tell you, there is no place where people wear midnight Eagles green or Phillies red with such wild abandon as they do on the west side of the Ben Franklin Bridge.

Sound familiar? This blog is for you.
