I saw an add for a new twist on every mom’s favorite go to pants the other day. No they weren’t the horrifying skinny jeans (and really, anyone over 40 probably couldn’t fit one toe into a leg, much less a whole thigh) or the oh- so -last- year, low rider versions. No, these echoed back to the dark days of mom jeans but with a higher comfy value. Pajamajeans are just that, pajamas and jeans IN ONE ( http://www.pajamajeans.com/ ) !! The add shows a model type sashaying around her daily activities in her (wink, wink) jeans that feel like pajamas! They look like dark blue sweatpants to my untrained eyes, replete with faux stitching on the seams and back pockets. I think I can hear Clinton and Stacey from What Not To Wear crying right now.
The ad goes on to remark that jeans in a department store can run anywhere from fifty to one hundred dollars, but pajamajeans will run you only 39.95 plus shipping, handling, and tax. Out of pocket expenses for therapy to recover from public humiliation are not included. The tag line is “Pajamas you live in, Jeans you can sleep in.” That is not a selling point for me particularly considering my daily work environment includes children that drip various bodily fluids on me regularly. The first thing I do when I get home is change!! I picture women wearing these with the black bar across their eyes, like in a Glamour magazine Fashion Don’t spread. So for now, I won’t mix business with pleasure in the PajamaJeans. But if you see an add for a sexy high heel that feels like a Dearfoam slipper, send me an email asap….
