Dress for Success

On our way to work this morning, P says, in her delightful way, "Fridays around here are like an episode of What Not To Wear." I have to admit I haven't been so observant, but once she brought it to my attention, Yowzaa!

When did "Casual Fridays" become "Dress in Your Wal-Mart Best" day? Women in polyester floral print pants and Birkenstocks rubber Gardening Clogs! Men in Hawaiian-inspired shirts and socks with sandals! It's like walking into a Vancouver Clown College Grad Reunion.

Fridays should not be an excuse to raid your closet and relive the days of K-Mart. I'm surprise I haven't seen someone walking around in their robe and slippers.
