Clothes, shopping, jewelry, body art, skin care, hair styles, and accessories.
I was in a furniture store yesterday and I just remember thinking, man I really don't care about any of this stuff. All the while my Gram was in her glory. Deciding over mirrors that all looked the same to me. I was looking at couches that looked sharp, but none of them looked inviting and comfortable to me. I just want something that I can sprawl out on and be able to fit other people on there to sleep. And it got me thinking, do I actually care about any of this stuff?
Home and garden network and the new fashions that are in just does nothing for me at all. I can care less as long as it doesn't look trashy it doesn't bother me. People have such huge opinions on handles to cabinets, I say as long as you can open it, it doesn't bother me.
My wardrobe consists of workout shorts and t-shirts 80% of the time, if any shirt at all. I had 20 white hanes tagless t-shirts and lots of workout shorts. Sometimes I would wear my brother's and he would wear mine. I wore them almost every day in High School. I never cared what people thought, but no one ever said anything either. I have been walking outside my house barefoot since I was a little kid and still do to this day(along with other places). Some golf attire collared shirts(which I did not buy)and cargo shorts thats it. When I have to go to a funeral or a wedding I freak out, mainly because I don't have any dress clothes. But the last funeral I went to I wore my golf attire. Luckily it is more important that I go, then what I am wearing.
When I go shopping it usually consists of getting in and getting for a predetermined item. And that is usually best buy for some type of electronic or TJ maxx for cheap shirts and undies etc.
Jewelry, I have watches that I never wear.
Body art and skin care aren't really my style either. So what am I actually doing posting here, lol.
I'm not saying its a bad thing or that I disapprove of fashion etc. I'm just wondering is anyone else like me? Or is fashion a huge part of your life, and if so why? Why is it so appealing to you?
I'm not into it. Sure I like to dress up now and then - about every six months.
I only wore mascara at my wedding - and only coz my friends made me!
I don't like make up. I'd rather spend $100 buying three outfits than $300 buying one designer outfit.
Same with Wrylilt, simple shower, comb hair, jeans and simple tank top, then off anywhere (except for special occasions, no make up but presentable)
I rather buy what to cook than for fashion and beauty.
Fashion is a HUGE part of my life. I live, eat, and breathe fashion. I have to, as it pays my bills!
A huge part of my life, all of it. Bag, shoes, jewellery, make-up. I was a make up artist for years too.
Also, these days I'm into fashion even more because of my teenage daughter - she lives for shopping and fashion!
I finance my fashion and beauty addiction by working in fashion and beauty. I do this, because I don't really consider fashion and beauty important enough to squander my husband's income on them. Everything has its place.
That's funny. Working in fashion & beauty caused me to almost completely avoid it. I used to be interested in such things, more than most people, I think. I wore makeup whenever I left the house, even to walk the dog. I was always matching, accessorizing, etc. I got a job working as a personal assistant to the advice columnist for a very famous mainstream fashion magazine, and over time I realized that putting so much time and focus into that world was changing who I was as a person. I was becoming more and more shallow, while simultaneously my self esteem was plummeting. So I quit, and went entirely the opposite direction. Now I wear makeup probably once a month at most, and as I recently posted in another thread, I only go shopping when my jeans wear through.
I think the effect it has on you depends on where you're working. Obviously, eyes are always critical in the industry, but I've been lucky to have worked in comparatively laid-back environments.
Today, I don't even have colleagues to 'compete' with. I work for myself, giving advice on clothes, make-up and hair. Most of my work involves getting brides ready for their big day, or styling older women who are unhappy with their ever fading looks.
But it is vitally important that my own appearance makes a good impression, so that's my excuse
I've been passionate about Fashion and Beauty since I was a child, and I don't think anything could make me give it up.
I didn't care about name brands and labels for the most part of my life, but I decided that I needed something to show for the my years of hard work that I've done. It wouldn't make sense to me if I never invested in some kind of luxury, because life is too short, and I want to at least look like I am a hard working man. I just started buying Marcos jeans, Alfani Jacket, shoes, and shirts to match my attire. Macy's is probably the best store to shop at for good vendor brands, especially for people like me who are working with a low budget. You can get some great deals there.
unfortunately I have never cared for fashion at all, I do like my home to look nice, even more than what I look like. I sometimes do wish I cared more, because then maybe I would learn more about how to dress nice. I do like to have a nice haircut and have healthy hair and practice good hygiene but that is it. I wouldn't know the first thing about make up or the latest fashions.
They are indeed a huge part of our life. Without it, any body is incomplete. It is very important for us to present our selves in a perfect manner. Fashion is not new. But it is found in every place. fashion trreands come and go. but a good fashion are always in. It helps us maximize our positive sides and guards our flaws.
Our bags, shoes, outfits all are included in our fashion. To be fashionable is the trend of present day
I like to dress fashionably but I don't like to wear too much makeup.
There have been times when fashion and beauty were very important in my life, and times when they have not. Any real interest I have in fashion these days comes as a result of having two daughters, ages 15 and 20. And anybody who has girls in that age group knows how important fashion and beauty are to them.
I'm a big fan of fashion and personal style so I have to say it's a big part of my life. I love dressing up everyday but not too much. My style is pretty minimalist but I really enjoy watching fashion shows and interpreting runway trends.

I was watching this men's fashion advice guru on youtube, and he claims that men should never wear tighty whiteys, or white crewneck t-shirts, because it's not fashionable. I just watched this, and went...you're kidding...

What is the best fashion or beauty advice you've ever received or given? I'd love to know!Mine would probably be: Wear something form-fitting enough to make you a woman, but loose enough to be a lady.
