Be Very Careful What You Wish For


The other day, when it was super chilly, I twittered about my lust for not only an ugg boot, but an ugg suit. Now friends, take this as a warning. Be very careful what you wish for.

I didn't verbalise this to anyone in my family. I did google it, but apparently no one makes ugg suits. But imagine how warm you'd be - however unsightly you may be. You might even look like a troll that skinned a sheep. How apt!

Anyhoo, my FIL brought me in something - very excitedly last week. A sheepskin jacket. My wordy, it weighs a ton. It's pretty darn cool, though I can't imagine I would wear it without 'baaing' at passers-by. But here it is. In all its glory. I think I might sell it on eBay (fear not, I have in-law permission). Or maybe I can start looking for the matching pants.

Oh wow, that looks so warm!

It reminds me of these matching sheepskin vests Mum and I had. We used to wear them over a cream blouse paired with matching kilts. We must have looked so cute at church ;)
Thankfully that's where the matching outfits ended.

As a fellow Troll, I would wear that with pride. GORGEOUS! Don't sell it. Just lower the temperature.....

Me, my mum and my sister all had matching sheepskin ABBA vests. We wore them with flares and clogs. We thought we were awesome! x

I like it. I think it looks very toasty.

Excellent. I reckon you could fashion your own pants.

you know what, I had a VERY similar thing happen to me!!
As daggy as mine looks though, I decided to keep it and I wear it on freezing winter days and not one bit of the ocld gets through it.
