My post the other day garnered quite a few comments about whether or not Ugg boots should be worn outside the house. I'm a bit of a fascist on this, and am a firm believer that they have no place outside of one's house. However, I'm aware that outside of the Antipodes, Uggs don't have the same daggy connotations!
In Australia, Uggs are a generic name for slippers made of sheepskin. They are cosy, comfy and warm, but not chic and definitely not 'real' shoes. It would be a bit like wearing your house clothes out to the shops if you were to wear them outside. That's not to say that people don't wear them outside, but it's considered to be very, very low rent to do so!
J, my husband, has said he would start divorce proceedings if I were to leave the house in mine! (you get the idea....)
Here are some glam loo pics of my outfits so far this week:
J Crew Wool v-neck dress, J Crew Monarch scarf, Lover leather jacket, random old pumps and Coach bag.
DVF dress, black blazer from Op Shop, same pumps and bag.
Heidi at Adelaide Villa wrote a great post yesterday about being a 'bag' or 'shoe' person. I'm definitely more of a shoe person, I think.
I only own 3 or 4 bags, and rarely think about purchasing new ones, but my shoe collection is pretty terrifying.
Yesterday, in a moment of ennui, I made the mistake of checking out the new arrivals at Net-a-Porter.
The shoes below caught my eye, and now of course I'm obsessing over them. I will not buy them. I will NOT.
But they are very tempting......

Finally, my Matches order shipped the other day, but look how busy it has been going round in circles:
I'm seriously amazed that this can happen. What is the point of sending it from Heathrow to East Midlands then back again? It's not as if the item has relatives to visit in Birmingham..... lunacy.
I'm hoping this item and a small J Crew order will arrive before the weekend. I'll keep you posted....
Hope you're having a lovely middle of the week.
Any excitement in your life?
Any shoe lusts?
