brrrrrrrrrrrrrr.





jacket. zara. blouse. vintage. pants. topshop. shoes. chloe. glasses- prescription!

so the mercury is dropping by the day.

and  i am still going grocery shopping like this- i am crazy, but i've also been living in Africa for the past 4 years.

so this brings me to another point of discussion + question.
i know some of you will cringe instantly, and believe me i am with you when i see them everywhere...but the 4 letter sheepskin boot is here to stay.

so uggs.
i have been thinking about buying a pair.
ONLY because i have not had a winter in canada for 4 years and i'm afraid if i don't i won't have feet come summer.
and i am not talking about cold-i mean freakin' freezing.
 i live in the prairies where it gets to be -30 celsius, therefore warm boots are a must, as is plaid and big woolly coats. to us canadians it is all about survival.

so honestly- what do you guys think? would you banish me forever.
also what else can you recommend?

also note- they would only be worn for running errands & to and from ( we don't wear shoes in the house here )

h.e.l.p.

Perfect!!!

Its geek sleek! I love the specs and the tones in this outfit - my god you musnt be able to stand around long in those fab heels though...
Im wishing warm thoughts your way!!!
Uggs are extremely important in cooler climes... they only have a bad rap because geezers wear them with mini skirts, in summer. How embarrassment.
Have you seem the NZ fash week stolen girlfriends club show on rumis blog? Thats some great ugg styling inspiration.

I seriously love ugg boots, but as far as I am concerned they are not to be worn out of the house. The only people I have seen do it in Australia are 'highly undesirable'? I think that's the politically correct way of saying it!

....but if anyone could make them look desirable, I'm sure its you!

Gosh, I hope that wasn't overly passive aggressive! x

Pappelschnee said...

It´s supposed to snow here this week, too and I´m seriously thinking about buying a pair of Ugg-like boots myself. As long as their are warm and comfy... i`m sure you´ll make them look stylish :) Love the glasses!

oh my!! is that snow???

playwithfashion said...

Great look! Shoes are amazing.

Clare said...

i know they are ugly but i love my uggs purely because i could never take my dog out in winter if i didn't have them. i also have a HUGE padded coat i wear + scarf + hat + thermals! I'd just go for it, no one will judge you! i actually remember i first tried on some uggs, despite hating them and i had a foot- orgasm. they will love you for it!

janis said...

oooh i like the glasses!!

i feel your pain. uggs are likewise a necessary evil in winnipeg. i have yet to find a fashionable & warm alternative...

Vivian said...

Dear fellow Canadian,

I think that we, as Canadians, are allowed to wear Uggs. Because we go through such harsh winters, and no matter how foolish we look with tuques, scarves, mittens and wool coats... we must stay warm.
I say yes to Uggs. For Canadians.

Sarah A. said...

completely love this look - its a hard one too pull off but youve certainly more than done it.

donna said...

I live in Toronto, where it's a mix of freezing cold and really ugly, dirty, salt-staining snowiness, and I'm debating getting myself a pair of moto-looking black Sorel boots. Yes, they are kind of ugly, but I'm thinking that you can use the rough/ugliness and practicality to make some really interesting outfits for winter.

Eva Ana said...

i live in slovenia and in witer the temps fall to -5 (nothing comparing to canada) and im freezing. well, i start freezing on the end of september haha
ok so...your problem. no matter what you think about italian fashion the truth is here: all italian or fancy slovene women wear things like this http://www.oursbiz.com/Products/b/141/Women-s-Long-Padded-Coat-with-Fur-Hood-GB-503-STOCK--54717.jpg

and leather boots. you could get yourself a pair with some fur in maybe. http://www.virginmedia.com/images/boots.jpg

uggs are not that warm and get the overused look quickly.

they sometimes sell rly warm combat boots in army shops. and they look good... :)

Raez said...

girl. coming from winterpeg, i feel your pain. unfortunately i see uggs everywhere, and im not so keen on them. i always just sucked it up and went with cold feet rather than wear uggs, but that's just me!

i suggest legwarmers, layering socks, kneehigh leather boots, sheepskin lined leather boots, combats...anything!

good luck with whatever you choose:) will still love you if you choose uggs:P

xx raez

ps. hot specs, and sweet shoes:):)

asweetcakes said...

You look great! I've noticed your pictures are very well shot - hope you pay your photographer lol. I featured you on my mannequin blog, hope you don't mind. Looking forward to more of these shots, and shoes.

lara said...

Love this outfit!!!your shoes are amazing and shirt too...
Kisses.

kayang said...

I have uggs too, and I try to avoid wearing them but when it's cold they're perfect..
and they're just so damn comfortable.

But a friend of mine last year bought these winter boots by a Canadian company called "pajar"
http://www.getoutsideshoes.com/product.php?id=1453

and before you think, "ew" she got them in all white, and for what they are I thought they were pretty cute.

It's like typical winter boots, in a fashionable manner. Survival first, right? They might look pretty cool with a plaid jacket.

Lol very Canadian.

Dylana said...

Go ahead and get the Uggs. I've tried a pair and they are amazingly comfortable. I am sure you can make them look cute!

Allie said...

I am positive you'll have no problem styling Uggs. But survival is important!

And you'd be surprised, some of the new styles of Uggs really aren't that bad.

But...don't take it from me, I live in Hawaii!

Melissa said...

I'm from Montreal so I can totally relate: we have our own heaps of snow and freezing temps!

Uggs aren't waterproof so if you're planning on walking in the snow or wearing them til spring, I'd reconsider. Slush, salt and uggs aren't a great mix.
Not to mention that they're ugly....

I love the old school Sorel or Pajar boots. Perfect for warm and toasty toes (not to mention dry!!).

Hope this helps! xx

Fashion Tidbits said...

i guess in cases of the temp being anything under zero degrees, i would be tempted to go out and buy uggs too...it's better to be warm than be stressed out about what other shoes to wear.so...go for it.

Sasha said...

I've been battling against Uggs myself, ever since their first appearance. They look like space boots. When I see someone in Uggs it reads: "I don't care what I look like, I have no personal style, I don't care what's on my feet and go F*** yourself." But -30C does sound harsh. Maybe just for errands it wouldn't be so bad...

Anonymous said...

-30???!!!! Aaaaaaaarrrrggggggg!!! Get those warm boots, Lisa! Love today outfit but I don' want you to get a cold! :)
I live in east of Spain and today, on the street, I saw people in boots!! (And people on summer footwear and bare legs too, the weather is crazy now and getting dressed is a lottery! But it's 16 degrees now!!
I'm sure if you bought Uggs you would wear them with style. Take care, girl! I love your blog! :) Sorry about my english....

Veronicahhh said...

PLEASE DONT GET UGGS you can do so much better.
these are so much better, and more useful at least. uggs are useless in anything wet, incl. snow.

by the way i love you in those sandals in the snow.

{Tara} said...

LOL, I have gone through the same dilemma! I kinda hate UGGS, but I think it has more to do with their overuse as a "fashion" item rather than any actual offense at their appearance...I mean, they're not the greatest looking shoe, but let's face it, they were invented to be practical. I think the problem is when people get practicality and fashion confused -- if something serves a purpose [a warm cozy boot serves the purpose of keeping you comfortable when it's miserably freezing] then we shouldn't totally disregard it. It's just unfortunate that now they have this terrible stigma. I will tell you that I recently saw a pair of UGGS that looked like black biker boots...you should check those out!!

Wanderlusting said...

I hate Uggs.

But when I lived in Kamloops BC for university, I wore them out of neccesity. I won't judge you and to be honest, you will make them all your own!!!

x0x0 Lusty
PS move to Vancouver...you don't have to wear UGGS here!!!

ryder said...

uggs, i dont know, if its about survival than yes. im in search for warm extra warm boots as well. but L. is that snow?? already? oh dear.im so moving back to my island... and warm mediterranean climate.

Love this outfit and love your shoes!! pictures are so pretty! kisses!

leeselooks said...

*** HA HA YOU GUYS CRACK ME UP! I WAS SERIOUSLY LAUGHING OUT LOUD TO SOME OF YOUR COMMENTS ABOUT UGGS + ETC...

TOO FUNNY.

THANKS SO MUCH FOR ALL THE KIND WORDS + SUPPORT.

SEE THE THING IS I DO HAVE OTHER BOOTS BUT MOST OF THEM ARE HIGH HEELED - SOME FABULOUS ONES FROM TOPSHOP + ZARA + A COUPLE OF FRYES -BUT I NEED SOMETHING WARM AND COZY FOR WORK + TO AND FROMS!

THEREFORE I AM THINKING A UGG AND A HUNTER RAINBOOT WILL GET ME TO AND FROM ON THOSE BLISTERY DAYS!!! AND EVERY OTHER DAY I WILL ROCK MY ZARA'S.... I AM STILL HUNTING FOR A SUEDE GREY BOOTIE TOO SO THOSE CAN BE ADDED TO THE MIX!

THOUGHTS?

YOU GUYS ARE AMAZZING. SERIOUSLY.

LOVE YOU

I would recommend you to check out the Bally "curling boots".
I live in Finland and I ´ve been wearing my bright red ones every winter when it can get to -20 degrees celsius. I can say from experience that they are really warm and age well!
But I agree that when it really gets cold, the survival is the first priority... So Uggs are also ok :)

M said...

i think they are quite necessary in the winter time... i walk to my bus stop in them for school. i wouldnt wear them anywhere else though. besides walking the dog and going skiing.
i mean, its not like anyone wll see them anyways. right?

Anonymous said...

Love that your hair is looking a little different. I do love your blog. R

Steph said...

i think you should go for uggs - get the black ones. i think they get a bad rap because so many girls wear them with anything like their juicy jumpsuits in neon green or with jean skirts. I think you can pull them off and when its cold they are almost necessary haha
and you should definitely get some hunter boots i am in love with mine.. they are amazing in the snow

S said...

I love Ilse Jacobsen boots...waterproof, comfy,warm & they lace up.
So much better than UGGlies!!

♥ Marta ♥ said...

You look amazing... I know that prairies have been unlucky with snow this year...that totally sucks :( but you look stunning, I love your blouse...

As for Uggs, well I still resisting to buying them...for me the surival is in a very good pherman pair of ski socks...everyone gives me the weird look when I day ski socks, but they are SOOOOOOO WARM! I wear them 24/7 in the winter... If you do go for Uggs, I am more than sure that you will look wonderful in them...and we will not banish you but continue to love you :)

Stay warm :)

♥ Marta ♥ said...

P.S. totally forgot to say cute glasses :)

sexyinthecity said...

Love the outfit, and you looks great with glasses!!
xx

rosalita fashionista said...

i love your outfit. the glasses make a perfect accessory. i have to recommend london fog "Wales" they are waterproof, cushioned, and lined in faux fur so they are plenty warm, but they have a cute shaped toe and very tiny wedge so they are cute too :) here's a link http://piperlime.gap.com/browse/product.do?cid=4016&vid=0&pid=615553&scid=615553002

Faridah said...

You look amazing!!! What kind of camera do you use?

Jess le Grange said...

I love your glasses! As for Uggs, I must say, no thank you. However, I do love the original Sorel lace up. I still have mine from years ago and they are actually quite cute with skinny jeans or leggings. Hope this helps!

Fashion Chalet said...

The jacket, the JACKET! =)

Uggs/Emus, I own for just lounging/running errands, tres comfortable. :)

Jillian said...

i feel yah! it's been SOOOOOOO COLD!
today wasn't bad but most days it is so freezing!

I have uggs I KNOW GROSS but it's a back up just in case i wanna be super lazy and it's freezing! they come in handy in these barren snow climates of ours! argh canada and buffalo, not ideal weather that is for sure!

I MISS YOU!!!!

margaretmarks said...

I love my Uggs in winter here in Colorado. There is no other kind of boot that serves as well as a sheepskin boot, thank you sheep! I have a pair of tall and a pair of short and I just got the new short ones with the one button on the outside. And do we really care about whether something is in fashion or not? Aren't we fabulous enough to pull off whatever it is we want to wear with grace? I thought so! I firmly believe that if I want to wear my Uggs on a cold day of errands I can do so without looking like a college student in pajamas. Uggs one day, Marni boots another!

Ben istanbuldan selda 22 yaşında konfeksiyon içşisiyim Amatör Porno sizleri bekletmeden hemen hikayeme geçiyorum.. Biz 5 katlı bir binanın en üst katında yaşıyorduk ve bir öğlen paydosunda sevgilim beni Anal Sikiş aradı evdeydim çünkü evle iş yerim arasında 2 dakika bile yoktu.. Bende Asyalı Porno sevgilime benden telefon beklemesini söyledikten sonra evin durumuna baktım evde kardeşlerim ve annemin Esmer Porno birkaçtane arkadaşı vardı bu iş imkansızdı tekrardan düşündüm ve çatı katı aklıma geldi sevgilime telefon açıp çatıya çıkmasını ve Fantazi Porno beni beklemesini söyledikten sonra telefonu bir süre elime almadım anneme işe gidiyorum dedikten sonra Gay Porno hemen üst kata çatıya çıkıp sevgilimin
dudaklarına yumuldum az bir süremiz Götten Sikiş vardı ve çok istiyordum onu hemen önünde diz çöküp sikini çıkardım kocaman olmuştu bile... Özlemişti beni HD Porno bitanem başladım sikini yalamaya kafasını öpüyor onu çıldırtıyordum sevgilim saçlarımdan tutmuş ağzımı keyifle sikerken çatı katının kapısı açıldı toparlanamadan Lezbiyen Porno komşunun şişman oğlu efecan gelmişti ben dizlerimin üzerinde sevgilimin Liseli Porno siki ağzımda yakalanmıştım hemen bu halimizi gören komşu oğlu Sarışın Sikiş kaçarcasına gitti.. Sevgilim bir süre güldükten Türbanlı Porno sonra bu şişko neden kaçtı korktu herhalde onu sikicem sandı galiba dedikten sonra bir kahkaha daha attı ben sevgilimin Türk Porno sikine deli gibi saldırıyor yalıyor emiyordum boşalmasını istiyor Zenci Porno sütünü içmek istiyordum sevgilim ağzımı sike sike boşaldı hepsini yuttum bir damlasını ziyan Porno etmedim ve sevgilimle vedalaşıp ayrıldık... Ben her defasında sikiş yapmadan önce yazporno diye olan türkçe siteden Porno izle bölümüne girip seyrediyorum azdıktan sonra şahane sikiş ile gözleri kamaştırıyorum.
