Dude, admit it, you're SO wearing Uggs

Word on the street is, Uggs are, somewhat remarkably, still wildly popular. A Fashionista blogger laments, "Is this a regional thing? Because even though I still see Uggs in the city sometimes, they're usually beat-up, stained, and relegated to Whole Foods shopping in the snow."

Well my dear, I'm here to tell you: Yeah, it is a "regional thing." Because whilst marooned in Tucson (long story), I've noticed that they're freakin' everywhere. Seriously lady. 

You know why?

Because they're absolutely. Ridiculously. Comfortable. As. The. Winter. Is. Long. 

That's why.

Would you wear these pants?

I know this is kind of a few months ago, but since I'm currently on hiatus from NYC-and I can assure those of you who always suspected as much, the rest of the nation really doesn't operate on Manhattan's schedule-need to discuss anyway. I have a talent for buying el weirdo pants online, and these Comme des Garcons for H&M jammers I picked up on Ebay kind of epitomize that predilection. The fact is, I think they're kind of chic, albeit in a really gay, avant garde way. (They look great with heels! Groovy with ninja slippers!) Still, I'm also aware that people, even the not-so-entrenched in real life folks like fashion editors, think these are the stupidest trousers in the entire world. I mean, my boyfriend refers to them as the "poopy pants." Apparently, even that precocious fashion kid hates 'em. Well, okay, she bought them, but after closer inspection, returned them.

So far I've worn them once. To a run-down Best Western karaoke bar in Tucson, Arizona. So right for the moment.

Question is, since I'm headed back to the city in a couple weeks to find a new job: Are they interview appropriate?
