An Open Memo to the Women of New York

Dear Ladies,

Flip-flop weather is over.

No, it’s true. I’m sorry to be the one to break it to you, but if you haven’t noticed, it’s 50 degrees out there. I have seen scarves, gloves, and knitted hats already make appearances on the street. Hipsters have begun piling their sweatshirts on under their blazers to protect against the cold. It’s time to switch to your fleece-lined Louis Vuitton bag to shove your tiny little dog into so he won’t get hypothermia, and it’s time to put your damn feet away. I don’t care if your pedicure from a week ago still looks fresh, or if it’s so fresh you’re still walking around with toilet paper twined between your toes. There will be no more flip-flops from here on, until at least Memorial Day.

In other words, bring out the Uggs.

That is all.

    cute, but i couldn’t disagree more. i’m one of those people that revels in the switch to this crisper, cooler weather, and there’s something i just love about the feeling of having on pants and a t-shirt with a hoodie or jean jacket on top, but with my feet exposed in flip-flops on the bottom… it’s the perfect mix of warmth and cold. like sleeping with one leg under the covers and one leg out…

    though i’m a guy, and maybe you really are only directing this at girls for some reason. :)

    I’m all for the taking away of the flipflops. I just pray that I don’t see any sandal/sock combinations now that the seasons have shifted.
