so....looking at uggs. they may not be the most stylish boot,I know....

I cant decide between the long ones (like triple bailey button or classic long) or the shorter version (bailey button) I dont like the mini ones.
long bailey button/classic long or
short bailey button/classic short.

what do you.have and what do you wear them with?
I want them to wear with skinny jeans/leggings. which is best?

the other pair came a few hours later.

they are both fabulous. They were ex display and cost £50 ish pound each pair - so i got the classic long black and the bailey button charm in chestnut.....i am IN LOVE. I dont think i will even take them off for bed....grin

im keeping both of them. well.....its not worth the postage to send one back is it?

got them from the discount schuh store linked on here t'other day (branch 309) said that being ex display one was discoloured but if they are i cant see em.

Ooooooh Vicar I'm so jealous! I want a new pair <humph>

ThatVikRinA22 Fri 07-Mar-14 09:05:21

To be fair it's probably my chunky legs that make the bailey ones flop because my dd whose slim they don't flop

Uggs are for my scruffy days, so usually leggings and big old comfy jumpers

ThatVikRinA22 Fri 07-Mar-14 02:19:49

well the colour i wanted wasnt on the site in the triple bailey anyway - so ive gone for classic tall in black and short bailey in chestnut. The triple bailey do look lovely and cosy but i did worry that they might gape after a lot of wear....i think mine will get a lot of wear!)

oooo i do hope they fit me.....<crosses fingers>

TessTackle Thu 06-Mar-14 16:44:51

I'm glad yours haven't Happy they're personally my least favourite style and I've had a fair few different pairs. Maybe it's just the ones I've seen?

HappyAsEyeAm Thu 06-Mar-14 16:11:02

My triple bailey buttons haven't ruched or fallen at all. I feel very defensive of them smile

ThatVikRinA22 Thu 06-Mar-14 15:53:41

well i ordered classic long in black, and short bailey button in chestnut - the only thing im worried about is the fit - i am a 4. usually a definite 4 in most shops - including M&S, Jones bootmaker, so instead of going down half a size i went up half a size - i watched the fitting guides on the Schuh website and they said if you are a full size to go up.....

i hope thats going to be right. Sending them back would be an expensive job.....

i got both styles for £119....from site linked to on if they fit me!

TessTackle Thu 06-Mar-14 11:10:29

Classic long or short bailey. Long bailey tend to rouche and I think are ugly sorry.

Long classic can be worn with jeans and leggings skirts and dresses

Short bailey the same but they lose their structure faster so look scruffier.

HappyAsEyeAm Thu 06-Mar-14 11:04:00

I am usually a 3 and a half, and I bought the 3.5. They fit really well. The sheepskin sort of flattens a bit over time, so they will feel looser with more and more wear. I hope you like them when they arrive! I love my bailey buttons and I love that they fit my calves even more. But if the classic tall had fit, I would have gone with them. They are cheaper too.

I am planning which ones I will buy next winter! Chestnut or black, I cant decide.

Sixpencenonethericher Thu 06-Mar-14 09:03:31

I found the long ones a better fit than the bailey long vicar
Get well soon you should keep both lol x

ThatVikRinA22 Thu 06-Mar-14 01:03:43

well. i am laid up in bed with flu (proper flu! certified by gp! grin so i have sent for 2 different styles - the classic long and the bailey button, in 2 different colours.

im not going to look at my bank still waiting for a refund on some rocket dogs that were faulty....well - it would help if i could get out of bed to take them back to the post office.....

im telling myself i will send one of the uggs back. i hope they fit.....

i sent for 4.5 and im usually a size 4.

ThatVikRinA22 Tue 04-Mar-14 19:47:37

thanks - i think i will either have to order more than one pair or go and try a load on first before i order....

thanks for the help though - i think im narrowing it down!

faustina Tue 04-Mar-14 19:44:46

I didn't find the classic long ones tight. I tried the bailey button long, and thought they added quite a lot of bulk - so less flattering

HappyAsEyeAm Tue 04-Mar-14 15:31:14

Vicar I have small feet (size 3) and I have had a few issues in the past about getting knee high boots to fit on the calf. I find that the side adjustible ones are usually fine though. I don't have to look too far.

The tall c;assic uggs were too tight though on the claf. I couldn't pull them all the way up, and so they looked like they had slipped as they wouldn't come up high enough. It iwas the edging at the very top round the leg that was the problem, as there is no give in that.

Myy triple baileys have not flopped in the slightest. I am really pleased with them. I ahve them in grey, but I would also like them in brown or black. maybe next winter. They are bloody pricey at �210 ish. Though I do keep checking the bargain site that you linked to a couple of weeks back. Office also did 20% off everything in November or so, and that included their triple baileys. They didn't do them in the grey though.

ThatVikRinA22 Tue 04-Mar-14 13:34:48

yes thanks, cant pay full price! keeping my eye on the site. need to get my refund from the faulty rocket dogs. ...then going to try uggs. smile

TheJumped Tue 04-Mar-14 12:37:27

Just checking you've seen the post on here on where to get bargain UGGs Vicar? If not have a look! I got my Swarovski encrusted grey short ones for under £50 brand new perfect conditionsmile

ThatVikRinA22 Tue 04-Mar-14 12:11:29

sixpence - how did you find the classic long fitted? were they ok around the calf?

ThatVikRinA22 Tue 04-Mar-14 12:02:15

so happy your triple button ones havent flopped?

maybe i should go and have a look and try some on - i do tend to like longer boots which is why i was wondering about the triple bailey button on classic long.

im still none the wiser! happy do you normally have any trouble with getting boots to fit around the calves? ive never had any problems but had heard the classic long are tight but do give with wear.....

Vickiyumyum Tue 04-Mar-14 11:59:07

oh they don't seem to do the short now in the bling only the mini.

Sixpencenonethericher Tue 04-Mar-14 11:59:03

I have long ones and bailey button long and I prefer the long ones because my bailey ones flop at the top
Skinny Jeans and legging I wear
