"Have you ever undergone a life change that altered the way you dressed?
The life change could be psychological, physical or emotional.
Yes. As long as I was in employment, I had to wear my shoes and dress formally. I live in Chennai, India and in this climate, wearing a shoe with socks was always a pain for me and I hated it.
Then I left the job and became self-employed. Now I opted to dress the way I felt comfortable and the first thing I did was to get rid of shoes and wear open footwear.
Over a period of time, I developed a distaste for wearing colorful shirts in variety of shades and designs. I took a decision to switch over to plain white shirts and plain black pants. I have standardized on it and wearing so for the past 10-12 years comfortably!
When I became a mother I switched from classy and sophisticated outfits to a very relaxed and casual style. There is no need to put on your favorite silk shirt when it will surely be stained before you leave the house. I really used to take pride in my style but now it simply doesn't matter that much to me anymore. I keep a few of my fancy things just in case but they are never worn now.
I re-integrated my thinking about holistic methods and business practice - yeah it changed my life!

I used to think I wouldn't do it, but now I do it a lot. I used to get up every morning, have a cup of coffee, shower and do my hair and makeup. I was always dressed, never slouched around in sweats unless I was sick. When I first was left with nothing, no job, the first thing to go was the makeup....
