I'm actually a bit proud that I don't care much about being "fashionable" anymore. I'm happy just to be in something comfortable and that (preferably) doesn't accentuate my post C-section belly bump.

I guess I've just come to a point where I've realized that, if someone wants to judge me according to the clothes that I wear, the problem is not mine... it's theirs.

Anyways, I think the world would be a much happier place if everyone just wore pajamas and bunny slippers all the time.
Ze truths. I want these, but fear having them confiscated quickly.



Don't worry about the csec thing, it will go away, just needs time for possible adhesions to settle and the individual layers to get stretchy enough again. Took a while for me as well.

As for being judged, I think we are our own worst critics, honestly. I say, let's feel really pretty tomorrow (not today, I am beat ).

Re: boring clothes

MC, you should most definitely get those slippers! Who would confiscate them?

"You can take my soul, buy you can't take my slippers!"

Correction:

Slippaaaaahs.

I have a little collection. Wearing the bunny ones for Easter. My hubby has a tiger pair, and I must say, he looks pretty damn sexy in them, too.

My kid will confiscate them. She already nicked all my toe socks, pirate.

"You can have my soul, but you can't have my toe socks!"

Ugly slippers are the best. Better than hot PJs. I also had some fancy scary fake teeth I enjoyed welcoming guests with, but it got old, I was the only one laughing after a while. It still makes me laugh.

Love my toe socks! I wear my rainbow toe socks with my five fingers shoes around the the house. Glow in the dark teeth would be cool for walking the dog in the winter.

Re: boring clothes

can someone explain the clothes paradox rant:

- too many clothes to wash, to iron and to fold

- suddenly hearing in front of the wardrobe the "I have nothing to wear!" when we need to go out

I knoooow. I am sure 4-5yr old kids walking from school would appreciate to cross their path with you!

Toe socks are great. Little things like that make life more fun. Ties, too.

I also have a thing for aprons.



And I have made a couple of sleeve garters.

I admit, I'm rather dull except for my sock choices and my collection of tshirts, which are great for hanging around the house, walking the dog, etc. I've always liked red socks and red gloves, too.

Over the past few years, my nicer stuff has become more colorful as well, but i always have a substantial wardrobe of black and gray.

My last job in the US required me to dress as a "professional". I once had to send someone home for wearing denim. That was a drag. Happy to wear jeans now.

But yes, i think dissatisfaction with our wardrobes is definitely a first world program.

My jeans are straight legged and come to a normal waist. No weird dye patterns, skinny legs or zippers in strange places. Cuts that I can move in. But that's probably why I buy them in the US. I also buy my husband's in the US.

Oh dear, you'd think they have enough money to hire someone for professional advice... Is it really necessary to show off...like, everything?

Hmm...I agree. Dissatisfaction with one's full armoire. Definitely 1st world.

But wanting to be pretty is not, nor is unwillingness to pay too much for something that is not worth it. That is a 2nd or 3rd world street smarts

I was trained to never work in denim, and honestly, I am glad. So I never do. It actually infiltrates to my other situations, not just professional ones, if there is a formal setting, I never put denim on, nor do I often wear pants. Skirts and dresses are so much easier to wear, go well with heels..I guess it's a habit, maybe it is the way I grew up, who knows. But toned down and formal, is something I never think twice about anymore, last 2 decades were long enough to get used to it. If one grows up with all the family around wearing a uniform to work, eventhough it was white and nothing I wear, the attitude rubs off I think. I did have to get used to a little bit to wearing strong colors in off hours, I like your red gloves and shoes. I remember you talking about red hats too, at one point.. I think I will still avoid anything neon, red red, vibrant green and turquoise, orange, makes me feel like a parrot, no matter how trendy it can be.
But it's fun to play with it every now and then.

I also love my old tshirts, from gigs, charities, festivals, conferences, etc. But got tired of wearing them, really, after a while, one can only sleep in them so many times..We are making pillows out of our nostalgic tees with mom, to see them around, cozy, but not necessarily wear them. Takes an hour. My kid loves it (and confiscates them ).

What exactly are you suggesting is wrong with that? She can wear what she wants as far as I am concerned, no need to go around judging people.

Re: boring clothes

This is exactly my view wherever and as regards whomever.

If you've got it flaunt it and even if you haven't, still flaunt it anyway!

Seriously, live and let live. Who cares!!!
