Favorite Things 2

Holy crap on a cracker!

She had a Favorite Things show PART TWO. WHATEVER! Now I have more choices and you're just going to die when you see what I fell in love with.

I think Ugg boots are the ugliest things out there, and yet, their holiday versions are NOT. They are AWESOME and I have fallen in love with the black ones.

YES they are COVERED in sequins. Couple of problems: Houston has about 4 days a year I could actually wear these. It's Thanksgiving week and today's high is 83. They cost $175 DOLLARS. That is CRAZY ... CRAZY. I told Conrad last night and he just looked at me. He didn't tell me no, I don't think he would ever tell me no, but he knows I'm not CRAZY ... even though I am crazy about these things. The last problem is I can't wear them to work. After our United Way campaign it became clear that the powers that be frown on sequins. They have been strictly prohibited, LOL and I know that sounds funny .... but showing up in boots covered from sole to top - clearly violates that rule.

but I LURVE them!

So Conrad had a good idea. He said I should start a search for some knockoffs and that sounds GOOD to me! We talked about it last night. If I can only wear them 4 times a year, they will last me the rest of my life. My budget is going to be $75-100.

How crazy am I ????

Well, they outlawed sequined JEANS. They said not a peep about sequined shoes.

It's hard to tell what they look like from the pic, and the silver and gold (oh my...) pairs are probably throwing off their mojo, but they remind me of what Michael Jackson would wear if he was cold! I be they're fab in person, though, and not in some tiny Internet pic. ;)
