Jim JamsPink.   They shout Charlotte across my chest.

Following me home from a tourist shop in the steamy southern US city several years ago.   They continue to lure me into long undressed Sunday mornings, afternoons, evening.   Blurring the edges between day and night.   The baggy track-suit-like pants could cover the nether-regions of a fat person.   Down my hips they slide, jostling to trip me up on the decidedly dangerous Wendy House stair-ladder.

Can I escape their clutches?

Bargain Blue Bed JacketJackson’s is the sort of store that sells  stylish and practical items of a classic and often exclusive nature.   I cannot sing Jackson’s praises enough.   With winter settling in,   cold nights in the Wendy House,   this little bargain in the Jacksons christmas special decorated window calls out to me each time I pass by.   A Candlewick bedjacket.   How have the fluffballs and I managed without one to date?   Jacksons also have some mens paisely print brushed cotton pyjamas…  

…I really am at risk of shopping and bouncing and getting all over excited within a fun-packed 5 minute period…

what do the pyjammas say?

Tuesday, December 26th, 2006 | tags: , , ,  |

There is a trend amongst the young adult girls of Seattle.    I’ve not noticed boys indulging in this fluffy passtime.   The trend is wearing your pyjamma pants  as everyday wear.   What does this dressing choice say?

Possibly it’s a variation on the notion of ‘come to bed eyes’,   ‘come to bed pants’?   Maybe it’s a way of expressing how ‘laid back’ you are “I’m so laid back I didn’t even bother getting dressed this morning“.   Could it be that these girl’s objected to the  storyline of ‘Sleepless in Seattle’ and they’re making a point about the fashion industry,   they’re awake in Seattle and not following the store-based clothing classifications.   A wee rebellion against the fashion industry.    Hoorah!  

Here’s a couple of girls sporting the look in a local Coffee House:

 

 

The folded arms, ankles-crossed, pony-tails,  multiple uncoordinated colours,  jacket shorter than t-shirt and trainers (US = sneakers) are all optional extra’s but definitely part of the core ‘look’ I see the local girls stylin’ in.   I may have to try this out to get the full  experience of the fashion-rebellious pyjamma’s as outer-wear thing. Like wearing other people’s clothes,  but not quite since I will have to purchase my own Hello Kitty Pyjamma pants.  

I’ll report back on the experience.   Wish me luck 🙂
