I recently found myself shopping at Ugg, and I noticed the oh-so-trendy platform short Ugg that was seen on Bella Hadid all over the store.
I originally went in for a different slipper, a more timeless one, in my opinion, but I stopped to question myself.
Being the Bella Hadid fan that I am, I wondered if I should purchase her shoes, and you have probably had that thought too I mean, they are pretty much sold out ever, so at least some of us have had that thought.
Anyways back to the point.
I was about to reach for the shoe when I stopped and remembered what I had come for. But then I asked myself which one I liked more, and I came to a realization.
…do I really like that shoe, or do I like Bella Hadid?
I love Bella Hadid, and honestly, if it wasn’t for her, I probably wouldn’t have looked twice at the shoe in the window. I mean, let’s be real, if we look at the shoe completely ignoring all the models that have been seen wearing it, it looks like a hove.
And I mean that in the best way possible.
I think it’s a cute shoe and if I could buy everything and anything, I probably would’ve bought it by now.
But most of us can’t buy anything and everything, and we have to limit ourselves to one pair of Uggs per shopping trip.
So here’s the deal with this shoe. It looks great with some outfits and when you are serving it, girl. But I think this shoe is going to come and go really fast, which means you’ll be left with this platform slipper that is soooo last season. And nobody wants to wear a shoe out that is last season.
But Uggs are so cute and there are so many cute styles that are constantly serving it girl, and they don’t seem to be going out of style anytime soon. Plus, they are classic and chic, so they go with anything and elevate the outfit to give a fall/winter casualness.
I would suggest to you either the Tazz or the short boot. I think these look a lot classier and more timeless, so you will get much more bang for your buck and not have to worry about being behind the trends so soon because these shoes don’t have a timeline.
So I know I said the platforms are the it girl shoe of Fall 2022, and I still stand by that. They are. But come winter, and everyone will already be over these shoes and going back to one of the styles I mentioned before. Then cut to spring, and we will probably all be questioning why we even liked these in the first place.
But if you really love the shoe, then totally go for it and rock the streets. But if you are on the edge, I’d suggest not getting them and instead investing in a different style that you will be happy with for much longer.
