‘Cause I have! I totally slacked this weekend in the laundry department so I only had one clean pair of dress pants to wear to work. I put them on and somehow pulled the hem out of one of the legs in the process. I was running super late so I didn’t have time to fix it. Thankfully I still had a pair of what I THOUGHT were the same pants in my closet that had never been worn. I ripped the tags off, put them on and pretty much ran out the door. The waist and thighs felt like the other pants but the material past the knees felt baggy. I assumed it was just because they had never been washed and didn’t think anything of it.
So, I get to work and see my reflection in the glass door and OMG, I look ridiculous! Saying the material past the knee felt “baggy” was an understatement. I think I could fit 6 or 7 more legs in these pants! To make matters worse, I just went to the bathroom and looked in the mirror only to discover that my top is TOTALLY see through. Thankfully I wore a cami underneath but you can still see my BRIGHT white bra straps under the black see through top. Not exactly proper dress code for a corporate office.
Oh, and my one and only co-worker is on vacation this whole week so I’m solely responsible for every sale that our chain processes. I came in to find 566 issues that need addressing (literally, 566. I counted). Normally, we have like 30-40. If this is any indication of how the rest of my week is going to go, I shouldn’t even bother getting up in the morning.

Believe it or not, one time I managed to make it to work without realizing I forgot to wear a bra! I don’t know what was going on that day. Needless to say, it was a short workday for me.

@MrsFuzzyFace: oh no!!
Their was a week where I could not get it together and showed up to work with my shirt or sweater inside out.

This happens to me about once a month. I tend to get ready quickly in the morning so I don’t always notice how I look. I’ve worn shirts backwards on a number of occassions and accidently warn (clean) clothes that happen to have stains or small holes that I’d never noticed before.

Never work, but college… I accidentally dressed as a pirate. Seriously. I am *not* a morning person, but I had an early lecture. No, I had very short, dark red hair at this point So I put on ox-blood red pointed boots that I loved, dark fitted jeans and a white shirt. As I was leaving the house I realised there was a rip in the back pocket of the jeans but I was running late so I just grabbed a (in retrospect fairly piratically multicoloured) scarf and tied it around my waist.
Anyway, off I went – I thought I looked quite nice, by the way – but when I arrived at my class, one of my friends looked me up and down, kind of puzzled, and asked me why I was dressed as a pirate. I’ve never quite lived it down.

Oh, to make you feel better, I wore my dress backwards at my bridal shower. No one really noticed but I definitely felt like a moron. In the pictures you can tell when I fixed it.

Presentation day – had to be pretty formal so I wear black shoes, black jacket, and what I swore when I left were black pants (they weren’t). Not tragic, but certainly noticable, and it made me look a little clueless

I once went to work with my shirt on inside out. I didn’t notice until dinner that evening. It was pretty awesome and I was upset when I finally realized it after I had gone about a normal day that no one said anything.

Most days I manage to make myself look like a fool.
Usually, the days I feel most like an idiot, are the days I try really hard to look cute. I admit, I’m a terrible shopper. I buy jeans and t-shirt and think that should be my work attire. However, it’s not, so I’m forced to buy dress pants and dress shirts. I HATE collars, they make me feel like I’m going to suffocate. So I’m stuck with sweaters and uh… fancy t-shirt? or silky tank tops with cardigans?
Anyway, on the rare occasion I’ll try to be adventurous and buy something out of my comfort zone. Like one of those sweaters that only comes down past your boobs and has two little buttons, and 3/4 length sleeves, that are scrunched up (do you know what I mean?) and then I get to work and feel like a ruffly clown. All. Day. Oh, and to top it off, I’ll match that little sweater (with a silky blouse) with a pair of pants that are a. too big for me and b. made of the most horrid fabric on the face of the earth, and swish when I walk. So, I’m a swishy ruffly clown.
I wish someone would just teach me how to dress myself.

LOL.. I spent all weekend at the lake and I am incredibly sunburned.. so this morning I was trying to go for a roomy top and a light cardigan.. yes, I look ridiculous, red… and about 30 pounds heavier because my clothes are so baggy! I just can stand anything to touch my skin at the moment!

I’ve gone to work looking rediculous MANY times.
However, the most classic moment I’ve ever experienced was the first day of my masters. I wore a really cute dress, denim jacket and flip flops. Not so disasterous you say? Well, the thong of my flip flop broke about 20 minutes into the day. Woooo! I then tried to staple the strap back onto my shoe…This lasted all of 20 minutes, it also managed to cut the skin inbetween my toes which began bleeding profusely. OH!
So, now I am walking around the halls meeting advisors in my department in bare feet trailing blood behind me. Classy.

Thats me every work day. I don’t work in an office, I work at a daycare. Our only requirements are black pants and a purple top. I wear black stretchy yoga pants and a VS cotton top. I don’t fix my hair (ie. I put it up in a giant messy bun) and rarely put on makeup. Add to the fact that I have to open the center at 5am means I rarely if ever look good. One day I was at the mall and saw one of my families. I walked over to say hi and the mom didn’t even recognize me!

haha! I work from home so sometimes I barely wear pants and a bra.

Once, after being at work for half the day, I realized I had on one black shoe and one navy blue shoe. They weren’t exactly alike either, though they were similar. I don’t know if anyone noticed. No one said anything. I was teaching second grade then. I think if one of the kids had noticed they would have certainly said something! I felt self conscious and called my then husband and had him bring me the matching shoe I needed.

I have worn two different colored shoes.
It was dark when I grabbed my shoes and put them on (DH was still sleeping). They were the same shoe, but different colors! I think black and blue.
oooops. I wore it with pride! It was pretty amazing how few people noticed it once I mentioned it to them
