I'm smiling...my mom to, was a label buyer...then one day I realized, so what? it doesn't make the person....

She always wanted me to wear a dress...?????? And it had to be the very best....and we didn't have a lot of money...but everything had to be the best...I had a doctors kid in school tell me, I was the best dressed kid in school....?? That embarressed me....but was true. You can dress your entire self up, with the best make up and clothes, and accessories and turn the heads of everyone, and look like you just stepped off the cover of Vogue Magazine...but when dollars comes to donuts...if you got nothin inside....all the clothes in the world can't make you a better person.

I will never ever forget....we were waiting for my daughter in law to come home, so we could go out to dinner...(it was freezin out....my son put a little beanie hat on my grand daughter) When my daughter in law saw that, she freaked out, rather abnormally and said, "My daughter's not going out of this house, lookin like a homeless person!" Apparently she didn't think, how insulting her comment really was....as I put those hats on my son...and I wore those hats myself...and so does over 1/2 the population...

so, no matter what you wear...you can't give, what you've never known. Fashion, means dittily squat...when it comes down to it....but, I believe fashion, is a security blanket for some? I dunno?

Hugs

I've never worn Uggs before (mainly because I'm a guy and it'd look weird ) but they do look very comfortable. Just out of interest what are they like waterproof wise? I only ask because when I'm tramping through the snow in my moon boots my feet stay toasty warm and dry but to me Uggs look as though they'd turn into sponges at the first sign of moisture.

I don't think they are all that waterproof, which is why they worked out so well for me in Colorado.
But I think there are different kinds of Uggs and levels of water resistance, too--some might work better than others.

I think you can wear them at any age. Where I used to live, everyone would wear them. Men. women, kids, elderly (they actually looked hip), all ages.

I wear them all the time with sweat pants. A lot of girls around here do. Not ratty sweat pants though, a matching sweat outfit where the top and bottoms match and the color of the outfit also matches the Uggs. I think it looks cute.

They are actually not waterproof, BUT they sell a spray so they don't get ruined when wet. I spray mine at the beginning of each fall.
