When we were in China 10 or so years ago, the Chinese women were wearing "leisure wear" on the street. Flannel, satin, cotton, peter pan collared pajamas.
|Pajamas in Public|
The Olympics were coming to the country soon and all the cab drivers were playing English language lessons in their cabs. AND the government had issued an edict...no more leisure wear in public. It was forbidden.
So no I go to my local beauty shop and pick up a magazine about celebrities and guess what young starlets are wearing? You guessed it. There was a series of various women wearing satin, flowered pajamas. The headline was "Pajamas are not just for the bedroom anymore!"
All I could see was us pointing and snickering at the Chinese women that did that back in the day. AND it occurred to me that we would do the same thing here in American today.
Goodness me. I am speechless!
