As an invite to UGG Australia store launch party in downtown Toronto hit my inbox, I contemplated this step in the pushing boundary direction. I might as well come out and say, "I do not like classic UGGs." In the same way I dislike leggings, I dislike classic UGGs. Unless at the cottage or deep Canadian country, the thought of wearing classic UGGs in an urban landscape terrifies me.
When the night of the launch came, I was pleasantly surprised as to the footwear selection that they offered in their new beautiful store. Aside from glitter UGGs that added the sparkle to the atmosphere of a buzzing soirée, the store was filled with fashion forward apparel, footwear and accessories for men and women. Although my mind has not been changed about the classic UGGs, I did find myself lusting over a shearling platform booties (see in the gallery below). The brand definitely took a step in the right direction.
The night then carried me on to Xbox 360 Dance Central 2 Preview at the Xbox Central on Queen Street. The Xbox Central is a temporary concept space that provides a home-like environment to try Xbox video games. The space is wicked and I definitely had fun dancing on 5 inch platforms! The things a girl would do for a good time :P

For the night out, I wore some of my favorite pieces together. As I was suffering from a crummy migraine, comfort was of the essence. There are times when a girl just feels like staying in with a bucked of ice cream and watching re-run of Sex and the City but duty calls. As I smiled my way through the night, the migraine seemed to have vanished. My polka dots were an ideal cheery addition to my all-beige outfit. As the temperatures keep dropping, I couldn't help but wear my favorite all-beige look of Marc Jacob heels and a Club Monaco skirt for one last time.
Happy Friday Everyone!!!
