One of my besties, Rob, invited me to visit the UGG Australia store on South Beach recently. He wanted me to take a look at their new Spring Look Book. I was VERY familiar with UGG’s boots and couldn’t figure out what in the world would be in a “Spring” collection. Boots in Easter colors? Furry bikinis?
Well, curiosity got the best of me and I headed on down to check it out. What a delightful afternoon! First of all, the General Manager of the South Beach UGG boutique, Chino Taylor, is from my hometown, Washington, DC! That in itself, made my day! I absolutely LOVE him! He’s my newest bestie and I’ve taken to calling him, “Home Skillet!”
Second of all, the store is gorgeous! It’s right on Collins, near the corner of 7th, and it’s just perfect. There are mixtures of elements included in the decor-stone, wood, metals–and it all comes together FABULOUSLY. There are also fresh flowers all around, as well as those gentle reminders that you are only steps away from the Ocean–seashells!
And best of all, the offerings are sinful! Of course there were boots–and lots of them. But there were also strappy sandals, rubbery flipflops, leather mules, cork heeled wedges, slip on sneakers, and much more. Another surprise for me–they had nearly as many shoes for men as they did for women. In fact, I even saw UGGSs for the tiniest of babies. And, in case you thought UGG ONLY carried shoes, there’s a healthy collection of rompers, shrugs, sweaters, and jackets. Not to mention the rugs. Did you know that you can get that gorgeous sheepskin that UGGs are lined with–in rugs and pillows?? NICE!!!
I loved EVERYTHING about this boutique and can’t wait to visit again. In fact, don’t be surprised if you see the UGG name mentioned here again soon. Chino and I are cooking something up!
And, for my DC folks–don’t think that I forgot you. There’s an UGG boutique in Georgetown–right on Wisconsin Ave. And of course, you can find UGG products in finer department stores and boutiques all over the country!
