10th Commandment: April 1

Apr 1, 2010

So, I have a confession to make.  This weekend, I opened my mail to find that a local retailer had sent me a pair of velour track pants.  Because I had heard so much about how comfortable they are, I decided to give them a whirl.  And you know what?  I loved them.  Wore them all weekend, and even to an impromptu brunch at a neighbors apartment.  I have to say, I was wrong.  

Yes, I was wrong.  Don’t gloat.

Elected Official

Cable Lounge Pants (Urban Minx, $128)

Hill Staffer

Lounge Jogger (Figleaves, $50)

Unpaid Intern

Old Navy Lounge Pant (Old Navy, $10)

April Fool’s.  Obviously.  Velour track pants?  Not even if the only other option was shearling lined flannel pants.

    LOL! OMG, I completely fell for it!

    Okay, that’s twice in the last 15 minutes I’ve been gotten. Nicely done.

  3. sas says:

    Phew! I almost fell out of my chair.

  4. Rachel says:

    Well done! I am such a sucker.

  5. Ms. B says:

    I nearly went into cardiac arrest! Don’t do that again! Got me.

  6. Chelsea says:

    Haha! Well done.

  7. Belle says:

    Geez, I was really worried. I thought next you would reneg on your "Crocs should burn in hell" sentiment.

  8. Meg says:

    I knew something was wrong when you said you wore them to brunch. EVEN IF YOU LIKE THEM, you don’t actually wear them places.

    … except to take exams when in law school. I MEAN, WHAT?

  9. ~M says:

    Ha! That’s where I started to question too, Meg. I stay in pajamas as much as possible when I’m home, but even I would throw on jeans to go next door to borrow a cup of sugar. I thought, surely, these were fancy sweatpants.

  10. PrepSchool says:

    You absolutely got me. I mean, I was horrified, questioned weather I could ever return to the site, and then safe to say very relieved.
