My skin is perpetually dry and bumpy. My mom would blame it on my veganism, but I blame it on living in the northeast and dealing with stupid and unpredictable weather patterns. We’re probably both right! My skin is always kind of ashy, and also red and I get tons of ingrown hairs on my legs from shaving and just living. So thank God for this Boots Extracts Cocoa Butter Sugar Scrub. It manages to both exfoliate and smooth without irritating my skin at all. I get out of the shower after washing with this stuff and my arms and legs actually feel soft and beauty product commercial lovely. I’m not gonna lie — the softness fades after about half a day, and I go back to having rough, patchy knees again, but for those few hours, I’m in skincare heaven. [$9.99, Boots]

Look, as the wedding industrial complex has no doubt told us all since we were in the womb, weddings are lady people’s One Very Special Day. So by all means, if you want to blow your wad on a pair of kicks from Ugg’s Bridal Collection, go crazy. But don’t think for one second I am not going to judge the ever living hell out of you. Uggs wants you to walk down the aisle in these crappers — you and your bridesmaids. But if you do, I’m going to assume that you really wanted to be on the show “Bridezilla,” and that you’re probably some kind of half woman-half monster chimera. Just saying. [BrideFinds]

I was about to make a joke about how these boots look like something the designers created with little scraps of fabric and leather they found on the floor of the factory, and then I read the description and apparently that’s exactly how these boots were made. So I guess I’ll choose a different snarky comment: these boots like they’re in the process of molting. Zing! [Luxury Jones Boots, $438, Free People]

An outfit isn’t an outfit without the right shoes. The wrong pair can turn an otherwise show-stopping ensemble into something subpar, but there are no written rules — choosing is trial and error. Regardless, there are a few basic varieties of shoes that every woman should have in her closet for different reasons. Sure, they may be “safe” choices, but having a solid arsenal of standby kicks and knowing what to wear them with can make getting dressed in the morning that much easier.

Debate This: 10 Reasons Uggs Are Awesome (And 10 Reasons They’re Not)

Every winter the Great Ugg Debate is reignited and the population splits into two groups: those who love Uggs, and those who think Uggs represent the downfall of civilization. Just in case you’re still on the fence, here are 10 arguments for Uggs and 10 arguments against — make your own informed decision, and let us know in the comments which side you’re on!

Shopping Guide: The Men’s Sneakers, Boots & Shoes We Want To Wear

For as long as we can remember, we’ve lived by the philosophy that you can tell a lot about a man by his choice in footwear. But lately, we’ve been ogling men’s shoes sartorially, rather than with a love connection in mind. Even though our feet are too small for most men’s footwear, we couldn’t help but put together some of the sneakers, boots, and shoes we wish we could wear. Here are 12 shoe options for the men of The Frisky.

Style 911: “I Need Wide-Calf Boots!”

Damn you all and your cute boots! Except — not really. I’m just jealous. I have wider calves and would love to find some smart and stylish brown boots made for gals like me–do you all have any suggestions? Comfort and adorable-ness are a must. Thanks and keep up the good work! – Betsy

It’s incredible that shoe makers regularly forget that boots need to fit regular people with regular calves. What are they thinking? Thankfully there are a ton of brands that do cater to wide calves — or at least offer their shoes in both narrow and wide sizes. After the jump, we’ve found four great pairs of wide calf brown boots for you!  Keep reading »

I’ve seen and worn some really ugly shoes in my lifetime, namely a pair of cheetah-print velour space boot-looking things. But I was 19 and am now blaming youth for that fashion blunder. Who or what will Miista blame for its hideous Mesh Toehold Boot? I’m not sure which offends me more, the toe strap or that these shoes are a poor representation of a hybrid shoe. In my opinion, the mesh is unnecessary and adds a cheesy quality to the “boot.” And let’s just be serious, this isn’t a boot! What’s even more shocking is that these shoes have received a rating of five stars from three reviewers. Maybe I’m the one who is crazy? Maybe on some fashion planet I have yet to visit the Miista Mesh Toehold Boot is hot?! What say you; do you like ‘em or not?

Winter is on its way, which means all of us ladies are at risk for mistaking leggings for pants. But there’s hope! Three shots of Uggcitrin, the only vaccine for the Uggs boot virus, can protect you from purchasing oversized elephant shoes forever. Unfortunately, it does not protect you from Uggs if you already own a pair.

What are you waiting for? Get your Uggcitrin vaccine today! (P.S. I don’t care if other people think they’re ugly — I still desperately want a pair of Uggs anyway.) [NYmag.com] Keep reading »
