Blech. Not a fan of uniforms. Absolutely hated them! It's funny because I wore an outfit last year that was similar to an old school uniform (vest, knee length grey skirt and white button up blouse). Didn't even realize it until my mother saw a picture of me in it and commented how it had to of been inspired by my old uniform. I haven't been able to wear the outfit, since. hahahahha
Me! I am really conscious about what outfits I wear to certain events and business meetings because I believe that it reflects on my professionalism. The more "put-together" and "sharp" my outfits look, the more I feel confident about my abilities. I own a lot of suits and business clothes, probably a lot more than people twice my age. I can't get enough of shopping for them and rarely buy casual clothes! hehe I only own about 3 or 4 pairs of jeans.
I also have a lot of fun adding my own feminine touch to a potentially boring and somewhat masculine wardrobe. This can be challenging at times because my ultimate goal is to appear older and professional.
I try to wear a lot of skirts and almost always wear pink or at least bright, vibrant colors to counter-act potentially boring and drab black. There is a challenge of still keeping my "girly-girl" feminine identity, but not over doing it. I don't want the "Legally Blond" look. hehe
I dress both for myself/husband(and I also suggest for him too). And also dress according to the situation/occasion (office, formal/casual party, relaxing at home, casual evening stroll/morning walks, yoga/sports and so on).
Mostly myself and my hubby, it is so entirely dependent on my mood and occassion. When i was abroad i could wear jeans or skirts and be comfortable but in india when you are around with friends and family we have to wear conservative and its more formal.
I dress for what the day is like and my mood. One day I could dress up more and take time on my hair. Other days I dont care adn toss on whatever is clean that I havent worn the past week. My boyfriend asked me how I decide what to wear. I told him I just figure it out on the way or when I wake up and go out the door. Im not really true advocate for getting up really early tossing a pound of make up and crap on and prancing around people. Not my gig.
I dress for my husband. I prefer to wear skirts and blouses where he prefers me in jeans. I usually wear jeans because of his preference and am beginning to find myself more comfortable too as they are slimming (and I have considerable weight to lose after four children!).
Whatever clothes or make-up I wear is for myself, but that doesn't mean that "myself" doesn't care whether I look my nicest. It's just that the person whose approval "myself" wants is me. I feel more alive and happy when I the person I see in the mirror looks good (and well too, of course).
Me. I'm not going to be getting any calls from Playboy for a centerfold gig anytime soon so I wear what's practical and what fits. Lots of jeans and cotton shirts, hiking boots, and I'm crazy for good socks.
That's what happens to old people. They get excited about socks.
As I get older (grandmother), I am aware that some of my clothes are outdated and do not look age appropriate for me. I still like to look fashionable, but do not want to put people off by wearing things that look like...
Strangely, I have only recently discovered this forum ...Anyway, can someone please have a look at this hub and give me some feedback, advice, critique, etc., please? I've only begun writing at hubpages seriously...
