I confess that I am a bit of a sad-o when it comes to Kate Moss's clothes & I never fail to think she looks fab (and that I may be able to look as good if I copy her) which, I know, is weak of me & misconceived. HOWEVER, I am feeling tempted by the Mukluk boots she has been wearing. I, as is usual when it comes to stuff kate wears, have lost all objectivity. Are they nice or are they completely disgusting? I really need someone who can look at them with a fresh eye & tell me what they think.

these are posted elsewhere by another poor soul who has fallen victim to the hype surrounding kate moss...

imho...those are very unattractive and i would never even consider them...however...i am quite sure that we will see a bunch of girls clamouring for them just because miss moss was seen wearing them...

so you decide...

look..if i was kate moss..i'd probably wear those once or twice because i'm sure she didn't pay for them..when you don't pay for things...you figure...what the heck...i'll wear this for a little while...and then there's this frenszy of copycats who run out and spend their hard-earned money on the same thing...

and then the person who got the stuff for free gets tired of it and tosses it aside for the next freebie..but the rest of us can't just keep doing that...just like the mulberry bag...do you ever see kate with it anymore???...

I know - you never see her with it. I really like that bag as well - she should give it to me!

The mukluks cost £259. thats steep!

what do they do with all the freebies anyway? do they send them to charity shops? wouldn't it be so bad if they sold them on. That would be horrid.

i'm sure she gives them to her family or friends or her nanny...or her assistant...
assistants usually get the cast-offs...it's like a perk of the job...

that would be nice wouldn't it. How does one become a celebrity's assistant? You don't get told about that one at the careers conference at school....

it's a rough job though...you are nurse, mother, therapist, babysitter, dogwalker, driver, errand runner...etc..and you have no personal life of your own because you are on-call 24/7 for the other person's needs...plus you are usually treated pretty rudely...you really need to swallow any pride or ego you might have...

but you might get free ugg boots...

I don't care if they are trendy or if Kate Moss still wears them or not. These boots are cute, comfy, and warm. Plus they're handmade.

I think it's a Kate thing. They look cute on her, but so would a lamp shade. I think the bulkiness of the fur actually balances out the lack of meat on her thigh Skinny or not, I'd avoid. Anyway, she was wearing these boots last winter, so I am sure there are going to be tons who try to emulate the look this year

I'd say no- unless they are a freebie
