A Public Service Announcement

As we head into the fall season, I would like to remind the ladies of Los Angeles (and other temperate cities) of one thing:

Unless you're actually preparing for a trek across arctic tundra, you will look ridiculous in boots such as these. Especially if you pair it with a mini skirt and a wispy camisole. I beg you, stop this madness.

And Marc Jacobs, you know I love you, but I feel compelled to remind you that the vast majority of your customers are not Aleuts. Please keep this in mind before designing future footwear.

    It gets down to fifty below zero where I live, and I still would have to be held at gunpoint to put those things on my feet.

    I, of course, LOVE these. Make fun of me all you like, but I have happy feet. But I wear mine (UGGs, not these) with jeans. And I want to move to Maine.

    I had a feeling you might, et. :) You get a pass because you live in an area where it actually snows, and you wear them with climate appropriate clothing.

    I've been reading your posts and enjoying them for a while -- I shall now reveal myself (drumroll please.....)!

    My issue with these boots is this...how many of us need help adding bulk to our calves?! Michael Kors has a really nice new one out (called SNOWFLAKE) that is slim. I'm waitin' for that one!
