Re: You can't be serious - new fashion trend

I am not buying them because I don't need anymore shoes, but they don't bother me.  I have had some foot problems where these would have been perfect for my feet.  

I do wear fluffy slippers in the summertime on occasion when the AC is freezing.

 

I have seen worse fashion trends that have taken off that I can't figure out and they, IMO, are worse.

 

Leggings tight  enough to be tucked into the cheeks and who ha come to mind, worn with too short a top, or worn with a wide " maternity" top.

 

It always looks weird to me to see mature ladies dressed this way....l'd rather see the fuzzy shoes.

Thankfully, they are not my thing.

The next time that I hear salt and ice together, it better be in a margarita!

Remember the fuzzy slippers everyone used to have?  Our dog took one of my daughters and buried it in the backyard.  I am assuming he thought they smelled.

You made my day! I am still laughing. Thank you for sharing.

 

P.S. I ordered the TSV in black.

 You can't be serious that the new fashion trend is   A392478 Koolaburra by UGG Faux fur  slide sandal  .  Resembles a bedroom shower slipper to me.  Courtney & UGG Rep say to wear with all your outfits - dress slacks, dresses, skirts , jeans ect

I would think all the extra fabric of faux fur could become very sweaty  during the warm months .  Guess, this is a hold over  from working from home so long . What does anyone else think.


I agree, @Skatting22 .  I think they are stupid looking..........Wilma Flintstone?  They could pass for bedroom slippers, but that is it.  I agree about the hold over from working from home remark.  Come on people, break out of the living in the cave mentality.  If you dare to go outside, wear clothes, not pj's and slippers.

I got a dupe of the Zac Posen which at Amazon, which I use for houseshoes.  Love them, but not for the grocery store or church. Perhaps to the mailbox but outside otherwise, no.

At my age they wouldn't be considered me being trendy but like I forgot to change my slippers before I left the house.
