Rug up with UGGs!
UGG Australia have teamed up with Pedder Group to help keep your tootsies warm over the chilly winter months, with a special pop-up shop showcasing their new 2012 Autumn/Winter Collection! Inspired by New York chic, their signature soft-as-snow (but warm and toasty inside!) sheepskin boots now come in a variety of playful candy colours and fun prints, with biker buckles or studded details… whilst there’s still plenty of old-school classic options too. Meanwhile, if you’re getting hitched in 2013, the “I do!” Wedding Collection of cute booties or fluffy flip-flops would be the perfect gifts to hand out to your bridesmaid party (or for you to lounge in whilst getting your hair and make-up done)! With some styles exclusive only to the pop-up shop, this might be just the place to buy some cool last-minute Christmas prezzies… and a sneaky pair for yourself, of course.

When: Until 31 January 2013
Where: 7 On Lan Street, Central, Hong Kong
How much: We’ve snagged a Sassy special offer for you! All Sassy girls who make a purchase at the UGGs pop-up shop and mention ‘SASSY’ will get a special complimentary UGG Australia tote bag until 31 December, 2012.
