How’s THIS for Unapologetically Mundane?

Filed under narcissism

It’s just an accident that my work slippers match my tights today.

But it sure is a happy accident.

    Um, I did not know that you had work slippers. This makes me both love you and hate you. But mostly love you.

      It’s not something I advertise. Makes it harder to whine about being overworked and underpaid, you know. But I’m not the only one at work who has some!

    I’ve never heard of such things…work slippers… hmm…

      I have work slippers. They’re black with a Steelers logo on them. I figure if I start gradually letting people see me in them, before long I can bring in my robe and jammies too.

      Might get some funny looks on the subway though…

      • katie ett says:

        Oh, gosh, the idea of wearing my beautiful slippers on the subway just made me gag. Although Snooki was always wearing her giant green puffy slippers on the boardwalk at the shore . . .

    I cannot imagine the shit I would get if I tried wearing “work slippers.”

  4. Lisa says:

    Wait . . . you get to wear slippers at work? Are they hiring?!

    • katie ett says:

      Sure, and about 75% of my office works from home, so you could hang out in slippers all day without anyone ever knowing!

  5. Jessica R. says:

    You have doll slippers and tights!

    Also, I’m going to start advocating work slippers at my workplace… along with cocktail hour.

    • katie ett says:

      I believe you mean extremely grown up and classy tights and slippers.

      Cocktail hour sounds great! That’s the one thing that’s missing from the post-“Mad Men” office.

    Those look surprisingly like the slippers you got me for Christmas last year, but it never occurred to me to wear them to work.

    • katie ett says:

      Honestly, I think if you blinged them out more, you could get away with wearing them to the store and telling everyone they’re part of a tutorial you’re doing later with some Tim Holtz findings.

    I am confused about this work slipper concept. Is it condoned, or are you just getting away with it? What kind of job do you actually have? Is it bad that I think it’s a great idea, but I would judge someone I saw at my work doing it?

    • katie ett says:

      Oh, yeah, I’d totally judge anyone who wasn’t me. I work at a software company that has approximately ten people in the office at any given time, and they’re all men, so no one’s really paying attention to my shoes, ifyouknowwhatImean.

    How cute!!! I love this :) :)

  9. Loren says:

    Since I live in Kentucky we don’t wear shoes to work at all. So I’m not sure what you mean by ‘work slippers’. ;)

    • katie ett says:

      People must give you the strangest looks when you’re prancing around in your fancy Chinese Laundry boots!

  10. Dishy says:

    Do you have to leave your regular shoes just inside the door like we do here are our house? Have you ever found your coworkers trying them on?

    • katie ett says:

      I leave them under my desk so I can quickly slip back into my real shoes when someone important comes in. But sometimes I do find them moved out from under my desk, so maybe the cleaning lady has a relaxing moment at my desk at night now and then.

  11. stela says:

    Those are so cute! I want some work slippers.

  12. Andrea says:

    I love these so hard. Where did you find them? I take my shoes off at work so I could use a good pair of comfy slippers. Of course, we can where whatever we want as long as it’s decent. So today I have on yoga pants and a work-out t-shirt and my puma sneakers. Well, the sneakers are somewhere under my desk and my feet are in the chair. And my space heater is running. It’s actually quite cozy here. ;)

    I much prefer summer though – shorts and flip-flops!

  13. Impressive!
    My tights hardly ever even match each other.
