How important are clothes to you? Describe your style, if you have one, and tell us how appearance impacts how you feel about yourself.
Not important at all sums it up. I don’t have a style, or maybe I just don’t have any style. I tend to buy a pair of pants and a few tshirts and then wear them until they’re wrecked then replace then. Besides that I have a funeral outfit and a wedding outfit and a childrens awards presentation outfit. And about fifty singlets, because I don’t feel secure unless I have a singlet on at all times, sometimes two.
I like to have t shirts or tops that no one else has so I have to buy a lot online – I don’t like much that I see in the shops, it all seems like cheaply made rubbish that all looks the same. No doubt I’ll be one of those middle aged women people snicker at and consider inappropriately dressed but I’ve never cared what people thought of me so I can’t imagine I’ll start anytime soon. In fact I seem to becoming more rebellious as I age which is quite exciting because I wasn’t what you’d call conservative in the first place.
I bought a t shirt a few weeks ago that I liked so I went home to research the brand on line to see if I could buy more and I discovered it was marketed at the 16 to 24 age group. Oops. I said to my friend I think I just officially became mutton. Do people say that anywhere besides Australia?
