“I don’t like it when things I like become popular.“
That’s weird, right? I guess that is why it is my confession.
Hear me out.
Example 1: I liked Ugg boots way before they became popular.
I don’t have a problem with other people liking the same things as me.
My issue that is once it becomes popular it will have its moment and eventually become unfashionable.
Uggs held true to that. They had their fleeting trendy moment and now they are considered part of “train-wreck fashion.”
I liked them before I they were popular, while they were popular, and I still like them now. I will be strong and continue to wear them despite the stigma of being unfashionable (it is the cross I must bear )
Also, supply and demand. Once Uggs became popular they had to start outsourcing to China. They lost their quality and fall apart or get holes MUCH easier (I have a pair from when I was 12 that still have no issues from wear)….(and I’m just realizing now it is weird my feet haven’t grown since I was 12…)…..
The quality of the shearling was what made me love them so much to begin with.
Now I buy Love From Australia because that is the closest thing I can find to the original quality.
No more true Uggs….
Example 2: Betty White
I’m glad she is living it up in her 90s and is so popular, but darnit, I liked her first.
I watched Mary Tyler Moore and the Golden Girls throughout my entire childhood.
The teasing I received when I told my friends my favorite show was the Golden Girls as a teenager (I watched it every evening at 7PM when I was in high school)
Now look at them all, jumping on the Betty bandwagon….I shake my head…(you know who you are!)
