Hmmm... Pajama Jeans.
These things look like they belong in the back of the ads in the Sunday circular somewhere between personalized checks and collectible figurines.
I was reminded of the Cribsheet post on Denim Huggies and the mixed reviews back when those launched.
I forwarded the link on to my colleagues at work to get their reaction. Co-worker Judy, immediately typed back
"I. must. have. them."
Yes, she was serious. She bought two pairs. A pair for herself and a pair for her collegiate daughter.
She brought in a pair for show and tell last week (no she didn't wear them to work).
They are very dark wash and feel like a really thick felt.
I remain skeptical.
I asked her for an update on how they are working for her so far - but she has wrapped them up and put them under the tree as a special present for herself. So no reports on how they test drive yet. I'm also curious to find out what her daughter thinks of them.
I guess I'm just slow to discover these trends. Looks like they were already being talked about last spring on glamour.com see their Slaves to Fashion blog post here Jeggings Schmeggings: Meet Pajama Jeans.
Okay - so, would you wear denim look pj bottoms or are they this year's Snuggie ?
What do you think - genius or punchline? ( Don't worry, I won't tell co-worker, Judy)
