    Catch-all thread to discuss your guilty pleasure basic bitch necessities.

    I bought my first red cup of the season so obviously I took a picture and filtered the crap out of it.


    So how many of your have already broken out the Uggs?

    I'm in Florida and still contemplating breaking out my Uggs... I'm in denial haha. Also got my first red cup yesterday!

    I don't even drink hot drinks usually. I absolutely bought it for the cup.

    I'm wearing patterned tights, riding boots, and a blanket scarf. I am pretty much basic all day, every day.

    Blanket scarf today! I will get a red cup this year though. Maybe. I didn't get a PSL.

    Me either! No PSL. I guess it's not too late. I'm more of a peppermint person though.

    Basic bitch status: I keep forgetting my birthday is tomorrow, so when I remember I keep exclaiming to people TOMORROW IS MY BIRTHDAY! IDGAF how basic that makes me either because I need a reason to be happy and dammit I love my birthday.

    I will also probably continue to slip it into conversation tomorrow without even realizing it. I don't even care about people wishing me a happy birthday, I just get excited.

    It's actually cold here now, so the uggs are absolutely out.
  12. It's been cold here too. I don't own uggs but my riding boots and blanket scarves are out in full force.

    I've been wearing my Uggs for walking Winnie for about a week now. Did some patterned tights for work today!

    J usually gets me a pair of boots for Christmas. Any recs for a riding boot style preferably under $100?

    What I actually want are Steve Madden Intyce boots but I've never found a style that was close enough for under $100.

    Also. Boot cuffs. Do you wear them?

    I do wear boot cuffs, mostly because to accomodate my calves, taller boots frequently end up with a gap that snow can get into. But I'm in MN, so your necessity may vary.

    If it wore them if would be for the sake of fashion, not functionality. I just can't figure out how to make them look cute. I feel like they look stupid on me.

    I don't, I also feel like they look dumb on me.

    Me! It snowed Thursday and I didn't feel like putting on real boots.

    Oh, yeah, I take public transit or walk to classes/work, all of my winter gear is strictly functional.
  21. I don't wear boot cuffs often. Some of my students do and they look adorable, but I think they look goofy on me. Doesn't stop me from trying to wear them on occasion, then remembering how dumb I look and taking them off halfway through the day.

    TIL what boot cuffs are. All this time I thought people were just wearing tall socks.

    I wear boot cuffs with my Hunter boots pretty much every time I wear them. Which is a lot here in the PNW.

    I have both. Tall socks for with skirts, boot cuffs for over skinnies.

    I wore leggings with an oversized sweater to Ikea today. Didn’t wear my Bearpaws though because it was a bit too warm. Do TOMS count as basic?
