I love fashion. I love comfort.
So why don’t I love the new fashion trend of wearing slippers in public?
Maybe it’s because it reminds me of when ladies used to wear their hair up in rollers as they went grocery shopping, to the bank, to pick up their prescriptions or cigarettes at the corner drug store or running to pick the kids up from school.
I never understood why in the world a woman would go outside the privacy of her home in rollers. They always looked totally undone. And the scarf tied around the head did nothing to help conceal the fashion disgrace. Thankfully I don’t see this fashion sin anymore.
Now it’s slippers and PJ’s. Everywhere I look. Discount stores, malls, fast food restaurants, even some nice sit down restaurants, banks, corner drug stores, schools, and dance clubs. Everyone is wearing slippers and pajamas.These folks just look undone and like they just got out of bed. Maybe they did?
A few days ago I was at Wal-Mart and I saw a teenage boy wearing pink fuzzy breast cancer awareness slippers. “Hey, I am glad you support the cause but maybe you could wear a nice lapel pin instead.”
The other night when I was at my after party at a fairly upscale club, one of the waitresses was wearing booty shorts, fish net stockings and black fuzzy boot slippers! I asked Alan if he thought she looked hot. “No, she looks bizarre”, was his answer. “Just checking, because that’s what I was thinking too!”
Last night we were at the mall. I saw more slippers than regular shoes! What’s the world coming to?
I don’t know, I might cave to the fashion peer pressure. Alan and Aliesha got me a really cute pair of warm fuzzy boot slippers for my birthday. They are so comfy and very fashionable. I’m tempted to sport them out my front door, just to the car and then the drive through at the bank or maybe a fast food joint. I just don’t think I’m really to be seen in public in my slippers and PJ’s.
