Wear a Gown to Work Day is Only One Month Away

Prom Dresses

The most exciting day of the year on the fashion calendar is almost here!

Of course, I’m not talking about that snotty Met Gala (which is probably just another front for recruiting unsuspecting celebrities to Scientology, anyway).  I’m talking about Wear a Gown to Work Day!

I founded Wear a Gown to Work Day a few years ago when I was walking past a rack of ridiculous prom dresses at a local Sears store.  I took one look at the bedazzled, polyester concoctions and said to myself “Dear Mother of Zob Why do women go to such great lengths to dress up for special occasions?”  I suppose that I had already concluded that fashion is either a part of your life or it isn’t; there’s really no point to pretending that you’re a glamourpuss when you know that you’re not.

But a moment later I started to reconsider that conclusion.  If I’m going to pretend to be a champion of fashion, I’m going to have to learn to be accepting of all fashion, including special occasion dressing.  It’s not up to me to tell anyone when it’s appropriate to wear a gown.  Whether it’s prom night, your wedding day, New Year’s Eve or the night of the Met Gala, if wearing a gown makes an occasion special to you, no one should rain on your parade — especially a crotchety old hag like me.

Fashion is frivolous.  It’s one of the least important things in our lives.  Still, it makes life a lot more enjoyable (and for some of us it makes life worth living).  That’s why I dedicated a day to the frivolity of fashion and the most frivolous of all garments: the gown.  So remember to wear one to work on Friday, May 25, 2012, whether you’re slinging hash at the local Waffle House or smuggling hash into your local airport.  Celebrate the fact that most of us live in a society where we are so blessed that we can actually waste our time wondering what we’re going to wear.  We’re so lucky to have fashion in our lives!
