Parting words from JWoww
The unlikely money train known as Jersery Shore is coming to an end, but not before a glorious, endorsement-friendly farewell press tour happens. JWoww's all over it. She recently stopped by Glamour to share some of her fashion and beauty advice. Here are a few of dos and don'ts:
Do wear Footzyfolds flats. "The roll-up ones that fit in your purse are the best. At 4 am, everyone leaves the club and pulls a Britney and walks barefoot. You don't want to do that, so bring an emergency pair. Just don't wear them until you leave the club."
Do wear Bearpaw boots. "Those are the kind of boots we like, extreme, furballs, like dogs on my feet."
Do get Keratin treatments. "The whole first season, I look back and regret my hair! I didn't know what a Keratin treatment was, and I had the blond extensions in my black hair. So the blond would stay straight and my real hair would get fro-y from the weather. I would put it up in a ponytail and just look like a skunk. But, at the time, I felt like wearing it, so I wore it. You can't look back and regret it."
Don't wear Uggs, though. "Especially with a skirt. It drives me nuts! And Roger [JWoww's fiance] is anti-Ugg too."
Of course, not all Jersey Shore cast member endorsements are welcome— Abercrombie & Fitch actually offered cast member Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino money to stop wearing their clothes in 2011—but Footzyfolds and Bearpaw may want to consider jumping on this opportunity.
