This is from a satirical short story by Krista D Ball. The story is called "Heaven, Inc". In this scene, several angels are having a conversation.

"Why do you insist on us wearing this modern nonsense?"
William slipped a finger around his collar to rescue his throat from the necktie's noose. He hated the new dress code as much as anyone, having worn snappy waistcoats for hundreds of years. "Don't blame me. It's HR's decision."
Both men stared at Rachel.
"What?" She asked, and then sighed when the men wouldn't break their stares. "The dress code really wasn't my doing. I only asked that we cut down on fabric expenses, since the French girls from the revolution were eating up most of the budget. I had no idea this would be result. I preferred my afternoon tea gowns to this"- she motioned to her gray jacket and skirt set,"-modern obscenity."
Owain scowled. "This is why we kept our women pregnant. They were too busy popping out babies to make decisions."
