"Because they are UGGLY!"

Everyone nearby started snickering.
They certainly are UGGLY! And I've seen girls/women wear them in the middle of summer with dresses.

I agree that wearing warm boots during cold weather is great but we had a heat wave two weeks ago and I saw 20 some year olds wearing Ugg boots with summer dresses or short shorts in 95 to 100 degree weather! Now, that is crazy!

I live somewhere that is only cold enough for uggs 5x a year. Maybe. And people wear them year round. I think it is silly.


I am on my phone, please forgive the typos.

3. Girls (and even women!) with PINK or JUICY written across their butts: what is UP with that? So you WANT me to look at your azz? Really?
Have you heard of crowd sourcing, crowd funding etc...? This is what I call 'crowd fashion' -- the "Jerry Springer Show Guest crowd fashion"

I am too cheap to buy UGGs; however, in the winter, I think I would like them. As far as tats, I always wonder what those people will look like when they are in their 70's and '80's? I seriously doubt the tat will look that "cool" then. JMHO :-)

Where I live, it's the guys who wear PJ bottoms outside and to the store. Women are more fashionable. We also have male cashiers who wear their pants down below their rear ends, so they're basically wearing underwear, and their jeans are more like knee-warmers.

Can anyone explain why the baggy pants trend has been so tenacious? It's been 20 years, and counting... In some parts of the US, anyway.

What do you think the rest of their body is going to look like, the non-tattooed parts? Taut and smooth? Youthful and glowing? nope. So it won't really matter much.

Didn't you know? People who don't have tattoos will look like supermodels in their 70s!

I also wonder how the 'anti tattoo' crowd feels about tanning, because that will ruin your skin far more quickly than tattooing ever will.

1. If this is not your child why in the hades would you give a hoot owl's poop what they wear? None of your business.

2. Nothing like a narrow minded, judgmental, better than anyone who has a tattoo human to tell everyone how trashy WE are.
NEWS FLASH: That Bank Manager you had to talk to for that last loan approval has tattoos AND (gasp) rides a Harley on the weekends with all his low life millionaire biker buddies who also have tattoos and are CEO's, CFO's, Golf Pro's, Professional Athletes, Doctors, Lawyers, Judges, etc, etc, etc.

3. The entire point of anything written on one's clothing is so someone will look at it. Don't like it, don't read it.

Next...
