mom-jeans-free zones

Agency Tart rants (quite rightly) against mom jeans at ad agencies.
There should be a rule that if you work for a halfway respectable ad agency, you should not be allowed to wear jeans with the pockets up by your kidneys.
But for some ad broads, wearing mom jeans is a helpless addiction that started gradually, years ago, with commercials like this. (For the record, this Ad Broad doesn't wear jeans, she wears pleated skirts and white gloves and two-toned pumps and--for Big Client Pitches--a matching pillbox hat.)

The only way to properly tart up mom jeans is with that elastic pregnancy panel in the front -- so sexy!

don't forget that they have to be tapered, only go down to the ankle and be worn with white socks & sneakers.

Oh, yes, auntie--I forgot to mention that Mom Jeans only come in L, XL and EPP (elastic pregnancy panel)
