An admitted tv junkie, lately I’ve been watching Tim Gunn’s Guide to Style. I love Tim Gunn because he’s honest, but kind. In the latest episode he was dealing with a mom who wore nothing but capri pants and t-shirts, and he made a comment that it was the “slobification of America.”
Well, this week I have witnessed the slobification of Schmells Bargo, where I’m temping. It’s a “casual” work environment, which means jeans and t-shirts. Well, and sweatshirts and knit pants and I’ve even seen shorts. So when they started to sell “dress down” stickers for a United Way campaign, I couldn’t imagine what that would bring.
The answer? Sweatpants. And more sweatshirts. I was shocked to see one person actually come to work in sweats and slippers. My take? Well, I think Dave says it best…something like a sweatshirt says you’ve just given up on life.
