How Important are clothes to you? Describe your style, if you have one, and tell us how appearance impacts how you feel about yourself.
Okay, first let me say that I hate the title with it’s little parentheses things. Why say (wo)man? Just say person. That covers everybody.
I hate the conformity of it all. You have to wear what’s out there. Sometimes I think, “I want to dress like I’m from the 1890s. I want to wear on of those straw hats. I want to look like Dapper Dan.” Or sometimes, I wish I could dress all hippie, or beatnik, or whatever. You can’t really do that. I mean, you could, but you can’t do it like it’s a no big deal everyday thing. People would stare. Or put you in looney bin. You have to wear what’s on the stupid shelves in the stupid stores.
A group off designer says, “This is the style this year”. Why is it the style this year. Why that junk? Maybe I don’t like that stupid crap. Maybe I want to wear dungarees, or knickers, or a kilt. Maybe I want to dress like Hamlet or Henry VIII. No – can’t do it. People would bother you.
At work I can only wear black and white; with specifics on the style. That’s boring. When I’m not working I usually wear jeans and some type of t-shirt, or polo shirt. I have some button-downs, but I usually don’t wear them. I like clothes that are a bigger fit. I don’t like tight stuff. It bothers me.
I don’t like to spend a lot of money on clothes. Who even cares. I don’t have a job or lifestyle where I have to dress to impress. I wear what’s comfortable.
But I would still like to wear some really groovy stuff at times. I wonder what would happen if I wort something like this?
I would most def be the grooviest cat in the neighborhood.
