Friday the 13th

So… yeah. I’m about 95% sure that what I’m wearing right now is the exact same outfit I wore to work two days ago.
Please don’t make a big deal out of it, okay?

    no one will notice except for the woman that liked it when you wore it too days ago.
    you can always spice it up with a paper clip belt or something. ;)

    TWO. TWO. as in one. two.

    kris: If only it were a plain outfit that might be easily forgotten – but it’s this bold crazy striped sweater. I’d better get to work on that paper clip belt – with earrings to match!

    it’s true you know, no one will notice unless they loved it. meh. just tell them you did laundry.
    or, you know, the aforementioned paperclip belt…

    Not just a paperclip belt, you could make a whole line of office supply accessories: scotch tape watch, roller-ball hair clip, white out nail polish. The possibilities are endless.

    Are you checking me out? I do look fantastic in this, last time I wore it, I still haven’t made it home… then the outfit won’t be what they talk about.

    mainja: I know, you’re right. Given the fact that I don’t even remember what I wore two days ago, I suppose no one else does either!
    Heather Anne: I’m most intrigued by the scotch tape watch. Will it really tell time? Do I have to draw on new hands every minute?
    Margaret: Interesting. So you’re suggesting I become the office party girl whore instead of the office slob who wears the same clothes every day? I like it!

    Just look at them with a hint of condescension and say, “Look, Tiara… some of us choose responsible spending over endless fashion. Balancing the budget begins at home.”

    Just start wearing the same thing EVERY day and then people won’t be so concerned that you are wearing the same thing as two days ago!

  10. jenny Says:

    shari: Ooh – good call! Self-righteous indignation always puts the clothes-watchers in their place – thanks!
    Dave2: Then I could be like Einstein, with an entire closet full of the same outfit. I’ll be all, “I don’t have time to waste picking out clothes. Do you have any idea what I accomplished this morning in the time it took you to put together that outfit?!?”

    I wore the same thing to work Friday and out Saturday. (SHHHH!!!)

    I read your blog and feel like I can never reach your level of wit and humor, and I should just give up my own blog. You are too funny!
    I often repeat my trousers at work, sometimes even the day after. I don’t think people would notice with the black ones–except maybe the fact that I’d fixed the hem with a stapler–so the staple glints in the light, calling attention to the fact that a) I’m too lazy to fix the unstitched hem, and b) they are the same trousers I’ve warn a couple times already that week.
    In my experience, nobody ever says anything to my face. But they’re probably all talking behind my back instead.

    I hate when I do that. I always think my co-workers will think I didn’t go home last night, and then their imaginations will take off.
