Can I Get an UGH?

Things I'm Soooo Over:

(in no particular order)

Bottle service

Footless tights/leggings (die, die!)

Uggs...I mean SERIOUSLY. Seriously. C'mon, please?

Tory Burch Reva Flats (in every color, every style and on every person)

Side ponytails.

People who think it's funny to refer to last week as "last year" in the first week of January

The word "pollster"

Men at bars who sip drinks through the drink stirrer. As a matter of a fact, make that anyone who does that.

Ok, I think that's enough bile for one day.

But can we please add Crocs to that list? Those ugly rubber things that are a slap in the face of every fashion-minded citizen ever?

Distar said...

I was really agreeing with you... But why's sipping through the straw bothersome (as long as I'm not making any noise)?

I do that all the time- the rim of bar glasses are full of germs... Bars don't wash their glasses properly and a NYC study at the chicest bars found filthy unmentionables on glass rims... iiiieeeewwwww.... I could carry around straws, but the stirrer does the same job.

nooo dont add crocs. do you have any idea how comfortable they are?? around the house of course...i would never wear them out..

and amen on footless leggings! ughh...youve pretty much singled out every long island girl! side uggs (which they are wearing with their footless tights and side poytails..) i 2nd the tory burch's!

and i drink out of my stirrer straw -- whats wrong with that!??!

Uh oh, I knew that was coming. I hadn't thought about the germ issue though, honestly.

I was always taught, by my single malt scotch drinking father, that when you have a drink, you stir the ice (unless you order neat, of course), take them out, place them down and never pick them back up. To do anything else just looks weird to me.

As for Crocs, I guess I forgot about them with the cold weather, but YES. Emphatically yes. Unless you work in a hospital. And you autoclave them. Sorry...

Uggs, yes begone PLEASE. Good list.

I'll be honest and admit I own a pair of Uggs. They're the black suede classic short boot. However, I will only wear them with jeans and a sweater or with a couple tanks layered with a zip up hoodie and when it's COLD outside. It irks me to no end to see girls with no hose/tights on their legs wearing a dress and Uggs. They are designed for cooler weather in my opinion and you can look like an idiot if you don't wear them a certain way.

oh man. concur. and going to a private school in NW, I feel qualified to say that Uggs are totally overdone/done wrong.
Also, apparently Crocs are not only really ugly but also rather unsafe.. Have you seen those Metro signs that talk about how escalators are like alligators? Yeah.. it's being all subtle but Crocs are actually rather likely to get caught in an escalator. Funnn

You could really add would you say that? Labels? Where you have "Hollister" or "Abercrombie" smacked across the front of a sweatshirt, instantly making it trendy. As if.

And ugly babydoll, eg. puffy sleeves, with the whole thing plastered in either dots or hearts...
