I love my readers, you all are the best. Thank you for taking the time to read my posts, thank you for the helpful, thoughtful, and funny comments, and thank you for following my blog (I have over 100 followers, that's just craziness! I love you all!). But sometimes a simple thank you just doesn't cut it. That's why I am giving one of you a $100 gift card to one of my very favorite online stores, Shopbop!
To enter: Tell me which pair Ugg Australia boots from Shopbop is your favorite and why. The best comment wins, so get creative! Let me know how you'd style them, where you'd wear them, all that good stuff :) This contest will run for 10 days.
I chose to focus on Shopbop's selection of Ugg Australia boots for this giveaway because I want to take away the stigma they have in the fashion community. Ugg boots are warm, comfortable, and a necessity in cold climates (like upstate NY!). And, there are some really cute styles to choose from at Shopbop!
So what's technically an Ugg Australia boot?
The name "uggs" or "ugs" actually existed even before there was an Ugg Australia brand. At first, uggs were worn by anyone needing to keep warm - from sheep shearers and aviators, to surfers and swimmers. The actual brand, as we know it, didn't debut until 1978 when an Australian surfer brought them to California.
How did Ugg Australia boots become so popular?
The boots slowly caught on at the beach, but Oprah made them famous when she gave hundreds away on her show. Then, Pamela Anderson wore them on "Baywatch", Samantha wore them on "Sex and the City", and Jessica Simpson sported a pair on an episode of "Newlyweds". Now they're everywhere.
Who else has them?
I have a couple pairs, and guess what? You can get a pair too, if you leave the winning comment! One winner will get a $100 Shopbop.com gift card good towards the entire online store. Just tell me which pair of Ugg Australia boots is your favorite and how you'd wear them. Get creative!
