And look back at the clothes you wore? Well a few young people will be looking back at some outfits we saw in town today.

I know these adult babygros are quite fashionable at the moment but we saw one young girl wearing one that was white with black spots. OH said she's dressed as a snowstorm, I said a leopard, then we both said together 'a Dalmation'. then we saw another one in a sort of beige pattern.

Then we saw one young lady who was quite hefty, not actually overweight but tall and with legs that were not slim. Bearing in mind this is a cold November morning, she had on a pair of black short shorts over ordinary tights and ankle boots, and a shortish black long sleeved top. A case of 'does my b*m look cold in this. Everyone was doing a double take as they passed her.

Maybe the dalmation was going to work where they were wearing 'what was I thinking'outfits for children in need. Certainly in wetherspoons they were all dressed in very strange clothes which I assume was for children in need day although there was no evidence of collecting money for it.

Gave us a chuckle anyway. :-D :-D

Not out in your jim jams again Prickles? :-S :-S

I must say Ann, I haven't seen anyone wearing these outfits (give it time LOL)

I don't really mind what the young things wear just as long as they cover up!
I'm fed up of seeing pants and bras on show :-|
When I was a gel it was only old ladies who had straps and show - quite a lot too! Straps that is :-D

AnninGlos Report 16 Nov 2012 17:47

Yes I did tell OH it was a onesy. We saw more than one teresa.

Island, they were not really young young, if you know what I mean, probably nearer 30 than 20.

I have to admit here that in the 80s I have a photo of me wearing something similar.

Lots of students here, and I see them wearing giant fleece babygro's all the time - not just for Children in need.

They're not quite as 'elegant' as a flying suit, Motown. :-D

Have to agree, a miniscule skirt (pelmet) with 'overlapping' thighs isn't the best look :-S


+++DetEcTive+++ Report 16 Nov 2012 21:10

M&S are selling those babygros in the PJ department.

Can you imagine the consequencies if some one wears them for bed and needs to visit the 'little room' in the middle of the night? :-S


MotownGal Report 16 Nov 2012 22:35

Get one with a flap in the back!!!!!

I has two or three of the flying suits and wore one to fly in one time, as a passenger, not the pilot lol. Never thought of the small loos on planes, what a struggle to get if off to use the loo and then back on again.

Someone gave me a onesie a long time back but as I am long in the body it wasn't a comfy fit and I think I gave it to a charity shop.
