Around these parts, EVERY SINGLE *mom* wears black workout (stretch?) pants....ALL OF THE TIME.
Even the ones who don't workout - but should or don't need to - can be seen wearing them.
I recall that my kids' old obese, disheveled, sapphic babysitter and her grungy friends used to derisively refer to these animals as *Talbots moms* with their *$80 yoga pants*.
Let's not forget those hideous, pink Red Sox hats!
Now I may dress the same all the time - jeans, sneakers, and golf shirts - but at least in doing so I don't dress like all the other members of my gender species.
Why can't they make their staple outfit a skirt? They can even make it out of the same material for all I care.
And while we're on the subject, some of these chicks need to get up earlier so they have time to fix themselves up, lose those hats, and perhaps put a smart ribbon or bow in their hair.
After 15 minutes of searching, I finally found what I wrote on this subject some 3.5 years ago:
I may get in trouble for this, but it needs to be said.
Another thing I hate about Boston is how homely the women dress. Women up here hardly ever wear skirts, heels, or even blouses. Everywhere I go, ladies, young and old, are wearing jeans, sneakers, Red Sox hats, sweatshirts, and tee shirts. Underneath those hats is usually unkempt hair.
No DA, it is not a lesbian thing. ALL WOMEN UNDERDRESS UP HERE.
I chock it all up to the groupthink contagion. It's easy to walk around dressed like a slob college student, if only because everyone else does.
