    Maybe a little.  When I am going out...whether to the grocery store, to church or wherever, I dress nice and neat.  My thing is you never know who you might run into and embrassment will put me in a worst mood.  If I am home, I may allow my mood to dictate the fact that I keep my pj's on or shorts and a "sloppy" t-shirt, don't comb my hair, etc.  I think we all need a day like that every once in a while....but it really shouldn't be too often.  Mood can work either way....you can also put yourself in a "blah" mood by not dressing neatly and combing your hair.

    Most definitely! Also, it depends on what activity I'll be doing in the outfit. If I'll be walking or standing a lot I begin the outfit from how happy my feet will be, hence something fairly comfortable. Then, I work my way up. I don't think I am necessarily normal with this approach!  Does it show that I didn't have a sister but rather only brothers growing up?  smile

    If I'm in the mood for a shower it doesn't affect my dress. If I'm in the mood and she's in the mood it doesn't affect my dress. If I have to go to work, my mood doesn't matter, they tell me how to dress. If I'm down and languishing in despair, I don't care how I dress. If we go out on a date my mood doesn't affect my dress cause my wife tells me how to dress. My mood is the only thing that doesn't tell me how to dress!

    Yes and no. If I'm very upset and don't notice, I will dress myself in all black. Sometimes I try to cheer myself up, but it doesn't always work. Classy might fit more in times of sadness. But I've started to dress brighter.

    Not really. A pair of black basketball shorts and a light colored, nice fitting t-shirt on hot days. A pair of holey jeans and a looser fitting t-shirt on cool days. I just wear what's normally comfortable to me no matter how I'm feeling. The weather dictates how I dress.

    Yes my mood does affect the way I dress. If I feel like lounging I will wear something loose and comfortable. If I feel like going out for a night on the town I wear something tighter with heels of course. I do dress according to the weather too. If it's hot I'm not going to be wearing much of anything. If it's cold, and it is here in Michigan much of the time, I layer up.
