I've mentioned before that I dislike how much the blogosphere makes me want more stuff. I like buying things as much as the next girl, but seeing bloggers' lists of "essentials" that include $90 candles and $500 party dresses never fails to make me feel like I'm losing at life.
So, let me introduce my new reoccurring column called "I love my ______." Instead of telling you what new, shiny dress/candle/ring/whatever you MUST go buy (because it's "swooon-worthy!" ugh. worst descriptor ever.), I want to share some of my best clothing investments with you - things that at the time felt like a big splurge, but that I've worn for years and have never regretted purchasing.
A big snowstorm hit the day of my first-ever big deal job interview in college, and the only thing I had to wear before changing into my heels was a pair of Uggs. A quick trip to the mall yielded these bad boys, which have since gotten me through the past five winters.
These things have only gotten better with age. I'm obsessed with how they wrinkle perfectly around my ankles and how the toe has worn down just a tiiiiny bit. This is probably what the Queen of England wears to feed her sheep in the morning when she's staying at her castle in Scotland, right?
