Just last Wednesday, Baywatch actress Pamela Anderson downsized her closet and ditched her Uggs.
No, OrganizingLA wasn't making a professional organizing house-call. On her own, Anderson found out the immensely popular lifestyle boots are crafted from shaved sheepskin.
The animal rights activist (right) wrote on her blog that she feels terrible for the Ugg craze that she essentially started years ago. Anderson began wearing Ugg boots to keep her long legs toasty between takes for the pilot of the Australian version of her television show Baywatch. She brought them back to Los Angeles for use on the set, and that introduction created a shoe phenomenon.
Uggs are commonly worn with jeans, and of course, Anderson's bathing suit.
“I used to wear them with my red swim suit to keep warm never realizing that they were SKIN! It's what I grab by my door in the mornings to bring my kids to school or walk my dog on the beach at 6am or anything early - I've definitely over used them - and that's it!!!!"
Having purged her closet of the fancy feets, Anderson now urges other to lose their Uggs, and buy Stella McCartney or Juicy Couture boots.
