What I Wore Friday: Hospital Chic

Today I am treating you to a very special post: my first genuine foray into fashion blogging.

As most of you know, I found myself in the hospital today because of a cactus spine in my finger (which, by the way, wasn't there anymore...don't worry, there was pus though). You guys are really lucky because I was able to chronicle for you the fashion-forward outfit the hospital so generously provided to me.

I really liked this gossamer-thin hospital robe with its choose-your-own-modesty-level back ties and one XXL-size fits all shape.  I love having the freedom to show as much or as little of my ass as I shuffle down the hallway to the bathroom for the 17th time. And this hair cover? So perfect for eliminating any vestige of beauty, dignity or individuality.

Next up we have these hospital-grade socks with grips on the top and bottom, you know, just in case.  These were perfect for the afore-mentioned shuffle down the hallway and had the bonus feature of giving me the appearance of cankles. I was lucky enough to get to take these home, so...score 1 for Caitlin.

I also got to meet a nurse who made up for what she lacked in bedside manner with mustache and awkwardness.

Finally I got to go home with a lovely yellow sheen to my skin from the soap they use in the OR and a lovely full-finger bandage that I get to wear until next Tuesday.  Who really needs to type or not only have use of one hand when wiping their ass, am I right?

  1. i think the endless grips on the socks are a great idea. sometimes i like to slide around on the floor like a seal, and those would be super dandy at a time like that!
