Pajama jeans

Why do celebrities dress badly?  How many times have you looked at someone on a red carpet and thought "All that money and this is what you came up with?"  I personally would dress like a drag queen or Lady Gaga if it were socially acceptable for an accountant at an insurance company.  Unfortunately it is not.




But I'm not talking about your garden-variety "I'm a fabulous rock star so I don't have to wear pants" look.  After all, a hot mess is still hot, right?  What I don't understand is when celebrities choose outfits that are both in questionable taste and unflattering.  Who wants to be remembered as the "stained camel toe" It girl?

In real non-celebrity life, most bad fashion comes from the "c" word.  If I hear one more slob self-righteously say that she just wants to be "comfortable", I'm gonna hit her upside the head with one of her Crocs.  What I'd really be comfortable in would be nothing, but I don't think the general public wants or needs to see that.  It's great we don't pass out anymore because we can't breathe through our boned corsets, but come on, ladies.  A pretty top and plain black pants are just as easy to wear all day as a ratty t-shirt and sweatpants.

This topic came to mind after I was subjected to a hilariously horrifying commercial for the following:

Now you don't have to change when you get out of bed at all!  Trashtastic!

Not that anyone would mistake me for a fashion role model.  My style tends to veer wildly between grandma and hoochie, although in my defence, it's disturbingly easy to look like a porn star when you're into the double letters.  Thank God I'm a brunette or no one would listen to a thing I said. 

So today is day three of Thirty Days of Truth and today is something you have to forgive yourself for.  I don't have many regrets and I'm really happy with my life.  So the only thing I can think of is that I'm disappointed in myself for using the holiday season to gain back some of the pregnancy weight I had lost.  But I'm getting back on track now and gobbling Christmas cookies and ice cream is pretty minor on the sin scale.  Wearing pajama jeans, on the other hand... 


  1. My husband and I are junkies when it comes to those celebrity shows and who is who and what are they wearing and yeah what are some of them wearing. And the hair, always is a good one too, do they look in a special mirror.
    Haven't seen that add for the pj's but can't believe anyone would wear them, okay yes they would, they wear pj's that look like pj's out already.

  2. You have hit on one of my pet peeves exactly: people wearing their pajamas everywhere. It drives me crazy. I go to the grocery store or even the airport! and there I randomly see people walking about dressed in pajama bottoms, tshirt/sweatshirt, and sometimes *shudder* even Crocs.

  3. Those pajama jeans crack me up. They don't even look comfortable so I'm not sure what purpose they serve. Who is the camel toe girl...I'm getting so old that I know a smaller and smaller percentage of "celebrities." That outfit-so hideous! I probably shouldn't criticize, I don't have much fashion sense myself. I lost a little weight recently and realized just how frumpy I've been dressing.

  4. hahahah, I am mildly fascinated by the PJ jeans. :) don't own any, my friends would never let me, but then again I have holes in my shoes and I don't care so much. trashtasticlious! I am laughing at your blog, love it!

  5. I just say pajama diapers yesterday. I guess you can wear pajamas everywhere, you can even poop in them...

  6. Found you through TALU and had to click on the enticing title of this post.

    Your equation is HILARIOUS. The photo of the stained camel toe pants is also HILARIOUS.

    But I won't lie, I think I'm in to the pajama jeans. Seeing as I usually wear pajamas all day anyway, since I work from home, it would actually be a step in the right direction if my pajamas were slightly more presentable.

    1. I never thought of it that way, but you're right. They are a step up from actual pajamas. I think the commercial focused more on them as a reasonable alternative to jeans or normal pants, which is a little weirder.


Lend me some sugar!
