Faux Pas

Whether its a faux pas or just something I don't understand, I'm struggling with this concept:


I took the liberty of blurring out this celebrity's face. Her name might sound like Anna Alabama or something like that. Anyway, I really don't understand Ugg boots and Booty shorts. Clearly if the weather is applicable to one of the items, it is clearly not to the other. If its cold enough to be wearing Uggs, then its not warm enough to be wearing short shorts. This is yet another college look that people seem to enjoy. I could-maybe-potentially-begin to understand the combo (maybe...) if it was inclement weather and you had no other possible options, but not today. I mean even when the weather isn't nice, I still wear my junky Jack Rogers because I know nothing will happen to them except they'll be a little slippery (and I don't have rain boots here!) but they'll dry fine, retain their shape and not be discolored--like say, sneakers might be. Anyway, this is ALL over campus today! I don't understand!!

Another very bad look with those Ug boots are those floaty summery sundresses. I just don't get it.

Oh my word Katie! This is just hideous. I am all for uggs when its freezing cold out and there is nothing else to wear that is warm. I haven't really started wearing uggs because it hasn't been very cold surprisingly. I learned from some of my friends that the tory burch jelly revas are perfect for rainier weather. I just got a pair a couple weeks ago and they're great. Happy Thanksgiving!

I think Uggs should only be worn with pants! And no one should wear booty pants!

I agree 100%!! I've seen Uggs with short shorts and mini-skirts and I never have understood it!

What a ridiculous outfit! Who seriously goes out of the house looking like that...esp people with actual paparazzi following them!? Terrible!

Strange --what was she thinking?

Wow...what was she thinking when she wore that out? Those "shorts" look like undies and I love uggs, but only with pants! I just don't think you need to be wearing fur lined boots if it's not even cold enough for pants.
