Ladies & Gentlemen, I, went out in public…in sweatpants. Now before you FREAK OUT and think the world is coming to an end or the sky will start falling, I just have to say, they are clean and fancy Juicy Couture knock-offs where it at least looks like I *tried*. I still hold true to my belief that sweatpants and pajama bottoms in public are what’s wrong with America.
If you ever see me outside in pajama bottoms you SHOULD freak out and start looting immediately!
The best part was that I unexpectedly tagged along to a meeting at a fashion design school. There I was, sweatpants, Asics tiger shoes, a faux metal t-shirt (see, I didn’t have an authentic Iron Maiden shirt, but a joke one!), a European motorcycle jacket, and leaning on my cane. I must have been a sight — especially when I told them I exhibited and taught fashion illustration!
Now I have to make up for this tomorrow by wearing something fancy. Good God, I cannot wait until I’m able to wear high heels again. Question: over-the-knee boots, a good buy? Or a fad that will look dated and dumb in 2-3 years? I keep trying to find a flat pair that don’t look equestrian or like Nazi standard issue. Discuss!
