Wear This, Not That: What To Put On To Go To Class

When you’re in college, it’s easy to forget that it’s not perfectly acceptable to wear your pajamas everywhere. People are doing it, so it must be okay, right?
Wrong. So, so, wrong.
You’re a semi-adult. Get your life together and put on a regular pair of pants, with an actual waist. College classes do count…

Oh God, The Horror: Uggs Has A Wedding Line Now

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…

Say It Isn’t So: The Sartorialist Gives Reverence To Uggs

Stop the presses! What is Scott Schulman, better known as The Sartorialist, trying to pull by writing about Uggs? I think at this point, it being 2012 and all, we can all come to an agreement that Uggs are an abomination of style and the downfall of society as we knew it pre-Uggs. Everyone know…

Uggs Banned At One Middle School — But It’s Not Why You Think

Uggs: They are a fashion monster, and yet, many people swear by their comfort. But teens and pre-teens at one Philadelphia-area middle school won’t be allowed to wear them anymore, either way. That’s because officials at Pottsdown Middle School feel that Uggs offer an all-too convenient hiding place for contraband cell phones. (If there had…

Have You Gotten Your Uggs Vaccine Yet?

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 ow…

What Your Bad Fashion Choices Are Really Saying

Apparently, when I just walked to the deli to pick up a Diet Coke (the only one I’ve had all day, as I am trying to kick the habit), my outfit — which includes striped leggings tucked into Uggs — communicated to my doorman that I’m a trendy and spendy slut who forgot to put…

Do Uggs Cause Foot Fungus?

Fungi like to breed in dark, wet places, and Uggs provide the perfect conditions, says Dr. Olivier Zong, a podiatrist and director of surgery at NYC Footcare. But not all podiatrists agree with Dr. Zong. Dr. Howard Shapiro, a DPM with Manhattan Podiatry, says any shoe or sock can provide a dark, damp environment, not…

Does Tamara Mellon’s Explanation Excuse The Jimmy Choo Uggs?

Wondering how the hideous collaboration between Jimmy Choo and Ugg Australia came about? Let Tamara Mellon, Jimmy Choo founder and creative chief officer, explain:

Do Not Want: Sequined Ugg Boots

Is it just us, or are Uggs experiencing some form of horrible mutation? After the original came the colors—pink, purple, and the like. Then there was Jimmy Choo’s studded and fringed monstrosity. And now this: sparkly, sequined Ugg boots. People, stop the Uggsanity! [High Snobette]…

Video Proof Guys Like Uggs

World, meet Joshua Ferguson, a teenage (we think? Pre-teen?) boy with a love for Uggs. He’s taken to YouTube to do super detailed reviews of his own Uggs and his family’s pairs … and let’s just say, combined, there are a lot of Uggs under one roof. You might fall asleep listening to all the…

And Now For An Important PSA Regarding Uggs

We’ve long been discussing the dangers of Uggs. Now someone is finally doing something about eradicating the world of elephant feet. Here, a spot for Uggcitrin, the Ugg vaccine. Talk to your doctor (or shoe salesman) about it today. [Racked]…

Ugg Offers More Than Its Classic Boot

Last week, I attended a soiree to celebrate the opening of a new Ugg Australia store in NYC. I won’t lie–I expected to see shelf upon shelf of Ugg’s standard boot in every height and color imaginable, and I wasn’t disappointed. But there was so much more. I died for the Cayha sneaker, a classic…

Let Us Compare: Our Jimmy Choo Uggs Prediction Vs. The Real Thing

It was just too easy: When Jimmy Choo and Uggs announced their collaboration, we couldn’t resist poking fun. So we wondered … if Jimmy Choo and Uggs had a baby what would it look like? Thanks to the Photoshop magic performed by our editor, Amelia, we created “Chuggs,” a heinous high heel sheepskin bootie (left,…

Jimmy Choo Uggs: Adorable Or Fugs?

I’m on the fence about these blinged-out Jimmy Choo Uggs, which Nicky Hilton got an advance pair and tweeted a pic of yesterday. They’re kinda cute — like I see them cheering me up on a glum winter day. But the “limited distribution” booties cash in at over $1,000. Um, what? That’s crazy! How much…

Fake Uggs Are Super Dangerous!?

While we recently learned just how bad platform shoes are for our feet and backs, we never expected to hear the same about plush sheepskin boots. It’s a little unclear what the difference between regular Uggs and the plethora of knockoffs out there is, if any, but according to Dr. Ian Drysdale, the Head of…
