So a lot has been said about my clothing purchases. Mostly my casual/social dress.

I buy multiples so I don't have to shop very much. For example, I have at least 20 pairs of black pants. I believe flannel shirts transcend fashion. (A man that likes me in a flannel shirt is my kind of man!)

I was watching the Nixon impeachment trial on TV and it was shocking to see that my clothing mentality became fixed in 1972.

"I have that shirt!"

You lucky people that don't see me.

Not necessarily me, but some of your friends would be just as happy / happier to see U without a shirt or any clothes.


Yes, Virginia, it's 2020, we've been thru more fashion cycles than fill/wash/spin-rinse than our washing machines...


just sayin'

I like it when clothes reveal who you are, rather than hide what you’ve become.

I've noticed a lot of older women have the same hairdo they had when they were in their prime.

I guess they know what they like and what works for their hair.

I have a lot of "vintage" clothing that I kept because I figured they would come back in style. I ended up storing them for no good reason because I never needed them. Now I'm on a mission to get rid of stuff I'll never use. I've had a "use it up and wear it out" mentality. I hate to waste stuff but at some point it's impossible to keep a lifetime's worth of stuff.

Your clothing taste sounds good to me. You know what you like and it sounds fuss free!

off to the Goodwill with it.

Hell, I've found clothes that I don't remember buying and wonder why I have them.

Byproducts of my hatred of shopping. I feel like I have to buy something to get out of there.

Lately I've been throwing out clothes associated with bad experiences.

Quick, better change to a shirt I don't like.

Now I've got that group's cookies on my hard drive.

A little advisory on these things, please! Or do I have to trick you into clicking on NAMBLA or something?

Please tell all about NAMBLA.

NAMBLA: the North American Man-Boy Love Association, founded in a Unitarian Church in Copley Square, Boston, 1978, following a multi-town bust of boy pedophiles. Their premise was that boy-love is innate (in-born), and has been practiced healthily in many past and present societies. They also hold that there is nothing intrinsically harmful or morally wrong about Man-Boy "love," only that it is "oppressed," misunderstood, and that it suffers because of secrecy.

NAMBLA was was included in events listings in the local gay press, proudly marched in the Boston Pride parades until the 1990s.

Since being retired, I find that I can get away with my L.L. Bean wardrobe, 100% of the time. Their size 8 jeans fit me perfectly, as do their size medium flannel shirts (which I wear over tee shirts in winter.)

We seldom go to church, and even if we did, the little Presbyterian church we attend doesn't care what we wear. They are just glad to see us, which I like very much. Nice folks!

My basic attitude is, "If you want to judge me by my outfits, I will judge you on your critical attitude. And you will be the worse off for it."

I grew up in a hyper-critical home, and I could NEVER do anything right. So, eventually, I grew a pretty thick skin and learned that other peoples' opinions really don't matter. If I am comfortable in my own skin, nobody else's opinion needs to enter the equation.

A nice personal philosophy!

In the summer, I have to change to long-sleeve t-shirts. I don't like short sleeves.

I do wear nice sweaters when my boyfriend and I go out to dinner, but I always wear jeans.

I never got dressed up until I went to my boyfriend's son's wedding September 2018 and then my daughter's wedding January 2019. A few funerals this past year. I didn't even own a dress until his wedding.

My kids know that I am to be buried in a hoodie, turtleneck, and jeans.

When I was young, a suit (jacket & tie, minimum) was de rigeur. Dresses or dressy blouses for ladies. Tonight, I saw one guy -- an old fogey about my age -- in a suit. As in many social situations, I noticed, among couples, that the lady usually dressed about one level above her escort.

I'm the same. I know the kind of clothes that work best for me. If I find something that I like and that I know will work, I buy it in multiples. I often have focus areas for my wardrobe, as in, I need pants, or I need shoes. And then I will buy multiples for what I need.
