Fabletics to Showcase Scrubs with Style at Chicago MidWinter Meeting

I've been practicing for a few years now... truthfully more than "a few", but the time sure has passed quickly.  I've been in the game long enough to remember constant jokes about "dental office music" as well as "dressing like a dentist" both of which implied that the practice of dentistry lacked any kind of "style".

When infection control became a front and center concern, the majority of people in the industry quickly embraced wearing clinical attire, which of course meant scrubs.  In the blink of an eye, we went from "dressing like a dentist" to wearing "healthcare chic" ensembles.  Personally, I loved switching over to scrubs.  I can still recall having dinner in an upscale restaurant before the scrubs days.  As I sat down to the table, I put my hand on my tie to keep it against me and as I lifted my hand away the thought crossed my mind, "I've worn this at work and I haven't dry cleaned it since... what the heck could I be getting on my hand?"  The next day I happened to be talking to a school chum, Dr. Stephanie, and as I told her about my tie, she rocked my world.  "Why are you still wearing stuff like that?" she asked.  "Flucke, you've got to get some scrubs.  Show some  style!"  Wise words, Steph.

Now you can not only look "clinical", but you also look really stylish (or in my case, at least not look quite as nerdy).  Activewear manufacturer Fabletics has taken the world by storm with their cutting edge sportswear.  We've all seen it.  Heck most of us probably have something from Fabletics hanging in our closets.

Well, dear readers, if you haven't heard, Fabletics now makes and sells scrubs and for the first time ever, they will be at the Chicago MidWinter meeting.  If you're looking to up your game in the clinical attire department, stop by booth #1235.  My personal "Fabletics Angel" Lacy will be there (among others) and they will gladly hook you up with your new look.  The company is running some show specials that include, if you sign up as a new Fabletics VIP, you can receive a set of scrubs for $19 and every set after that is 50% off!  They also can provide group orders and embroidery.

Stop by booth #1235 and check out their gear.  If you don't get a chance to make it by, I'll be lecturing on Saturday, presenting two different courses and I may have my new pair of Fabletics scrubs with me... hopefully their show stock will have something I can buy and take with me.

See you all in Chicago!
