How important are clothes to you? Describe your style, if you have one, and tell us how appearance impacts how you feel about yourself.
I never wear anything tight, short, or low. Makes me uncomfortable. I don’t want to be unable to breathe or move comfortably. I don’t want to be tugging at my hem to cover myself. I don’t want people looking down my cleavage.
I dress professionally when I’m working, but I’m also comfortable. Loose, but not baggy. Nothing that is going to have me fussing with it all day. I like jewelry, and I always wear it when I’m working or otherwise dressed to go out.
At home, give me my jeans and a tee, but again, not tight.
So. I don’t know what my style is. I know what I like, and I shop by color first. When I spot a color I like and that I know works for me, that’s what I pull off the rack. I like dresses, and the maxi-dress is wonderful for me. Makes me look a little longer. I’m only 4’11,” so a short skirt just makes me look stumpy. Nice slacks also tend to stretch me out a bit. And I have to watch how it all balances, because I’m way overweight. Don’t want to emphasize the obvious.
I really don’t think about my clothes too much. After all these years, I go with what I like and pay almost no attention at all to fashion. I tend toward the conservative and the classic, I guess. I don’t get new things very often, because I like what I have.
I just wish I didn’t have as many sizes hanging in my closet as I do.
I would wear this outfit, but the pants would be looser.
