Loathe: UGG & Jimmy Choo

I saw this in my inbox as I was leaving the house this afternoon:

It made me cringe, and almost ruined what should have been a fun trip to the dog pound. It was the subject line from an email that Holt Renfrew sent me. Now Holts, let me make something clear. I like getting your updates, because I like to know what lovely things you are getting into store. But never send Ugg boots info to my inbox again. Never suggest to me that I may want to reserve a pair of Uggs in advance, as this will never be the case. And even worse, don’t fill my inbox with promotions for $800 Ugg boots co-designed by the WAG’s footwear company. Gross.

UGG by Jimmy Choo. $800 a pair. A total rip off, and possibly the most hideous boot I have ever seen in my life.

On that note, I’d like to direct my new readers to a post I wrote a few months ago about Ugg’s. As this was (sadly) my finest piece of writing, I thought I’d share it all with you again.

Loathe: Stolen Uggs

    Uggs should be banned by law.

    Agree. Although I'd lose one of my favorite fashion items to insult.

    LOL I'm sure you would miss dissing Uggs if they'd be banned! That post was one of the first ones I read from your blog and you instantly had a new fan!
    I saw this collection a couple of weeks ago and I thought it was Payless doing faux Uggs. I can't believe Jimmy Choo thought this collaboration would have a positive impact on the brand… And the price range is RIDICULOUS!

    Yes, I would definitely miss dissing them if they disappeared. I need Uggs to make fun of.
