it's cold, people. geez.

This is a public service announcement for anyone out there who, like me, didn't realize that pulling a pink zip-up track suit jacket over your work clothes is apparently a crime against humanity.

Why does one HAVE a pink zip-up track suit jacket, you ask? Well of course because one's 87-year-old aunt gave it to one. And yes, of course one has matching pants.

Sniffle. No one understands me.

I get the feeling that if you were Ralphie, you'd have been standing -- happily, maybe even defiantly so -- at the foot of the stairs on Christmas morning, in the same pink-bunny getup.

Understand you? Not always.
Love you anyway? Hell yeah. Pink or not.

One enjoys your more-eloquent-than-usually-met-with use of pronouns, btw.

Well, see, there's your problem--you should have pulled the pants over your work clothes, too, and then no one would have minded.

I bet you ROCKED that pink zip-up track suit jacket.

Besides, last time I checked Fashion Police wasn't a real job so whoever called you out should get over it.

I was wearing multi-colored ski pants today. On the streets of Manhattan.

Yeah. Stylish.

If you were a character, you'd jump off the page.

Wish you could post a picture, but then you wouldn't be anonymous anymore. :)

LOL! The normal solution is a winter coat...

Did anyone else visualize an 87 year-old woman wearing a pink track suit?

I understand you. My gram used to give me crocheted vests - which were definitely not in style at the time. I would have loved a crocheted blanket but no vests and hand-made pants, with the crotch down around my knees :(

Maybe that's why I'm still no fashionista.

Just crawling out of lurkdom to tell you, when I was young, about a million years ago, I had no car, rode my motorcycle 365 days a year...in Michigan...in zero degree weather...in my leathers, which are really cold. My mother took pity on my and bought me a bright pink ski/snow suit to wear when it was unbearably cold.

I looked like a huge pink sucker!

I feel for you...

Could be worse. Could be a purple velour sweatshirt with your name on the front and matching pants.

You think I'm kidding, but I have pictures...

Thank you, moonrat. I needed to laugh this morning. :)

Personally, I loathe pink. But I could care less if you wear a pink zip up track jacket in public. If you liked it, or, failing liking it, it kept you warm, then all's good.

I used to wear my joggers with my suits (when I was a suit) because heels are painful to walk in. Such a fashion diva, that was me!

(But hon, please don't share about your footie pajamas.)

THIS POST IS WORTHLESS W/OUT PICS!

I agree with Anon...Moonie, we need a pic of this.

I'm imagining pink velour...seriously. Please help my eyeballs achieve regular sight again.

There's nothing wrong with pink. Pink is the new orange.
