Lately though, I find myself reading about the new style lounge-wear... in magazines, on blogs, apparently you dont have to look a tramp to dress comfy. SURPRISE! I've been taking a look (or should I say disgruntled peek) at myself whilst dressed in, err, 'comfy mode, and well, to be frank I'm surprised I still have a hubby, but what shocks me the most in all these very pretty glossy articles is the price to look good whilst 'lounging'.
Trousers for £80, cardigans from £135 (I shan't mention the company names)?!? Have I missed something? Really, there is no way ON THIS earth I would be lounging in anything that costs me over £10 - I have a habit of spilling food down me, I may partake in a few household chores at the same time as wearing these clothes (or do people not do housework), I am often covered in rabbit fur and hay and, dare I say it, I might actually fall asleep in these clothes - so why on earth the price tag?
Don't get me wrong, I do look at these articles of models and bloggers alike (cue the onslaught) modelling their very pretty lounge-wear-esque type clothing and cant help but wonder who can really, and I mean actually put their hand in their purse and buy this range of clothing. I am a 30 year old married woman, with no children, my own house and I think I live a reasonably good life, with a reasonable income and the ability to occasionally treat myself but yet, if you told me to go and buy some lounge-wear for £50+ at a time I would probably, most definitely laugh in your face.
However, that being said and in a way of apology, I do still look at these posts and articles with love - who DOESN'T want to look that good huh!? but a conscious effort will be made on my part to perhaps look a little better when 'lounging' but there High Street for me, will be where it's at - give me H&M and Primark any day of the week - those clothes don't mind when I spill bean juice down them.
