Do you stress about what clothes to wear? Are you fashion conscious?

I do stress about what clothes to wear on a daily basis. I am a teacher and we don't have a uniform, so I usually plan my clothes ahead so I would not stress about it. I don't know why I'm like this. I think it's because I was fashion conscious back in the day. I gained a bit of weight so I could not fit well in my nice clothes anymore. I could not afford to buy nice clothes these days because I have to prioritize my bill payments! Oh well...how about you?

Actually, I don't. We have a uniform in the office for each day so I don't really "stress" out that much. on days when I have to wear casual clothes, I pick clothes that i would feel very comfortable in. i don't buy much clothes. i know I need to "revamp" my wardrobe as I know I still wear the same things since I was in HS!! I can't help it,I'm so comfortable in shirt and jeans! I am trying to wear some nice blouses nowadays for some dinners and gatherings. LOL! like you, I also prioritize bill payments more than my own shopping needs. I always think, "I still have decent clothes anyway".

Hi! You're lucky you have a uniform. You don't have to think about clothes too much. Casual get-up like jeans and shirt is fine, anyway. That does not get out-of-fashion. Which reminds me..I also need a wardrobe revamp. Hahaha. Thanks for the response and happy myLotting!

I'm very lucky, my job (stay at home mom and gramma) has no dress requirements and my wore out baggy hillbilly ensembles work just fine..

Not always, I like to go to my closet the night before and pick out soemthing I will wear the next day. I like to make sure it is pressed and ready to throw on the next day and pick out what to wear with it that way I don't waste time doing it that morning.

I work in the fashion industry and it is important in my line of work to keep up with fashion. HOwever, I am don't consider myself fashionable because though I keep up with fashion and what's in or out, I don't usually go with them personally. I always have my own sense of style and I prefer comfortability compared to fashion. A lot of what I wear also depends on my mood. There are days that I go the whole nine yards in dressing up and there are days that I don't even like to wear any make-up. But even with those, I always make it a point that I am comfortable and confident in what I am wearing.

I do stress about what to wear. These days there's so much pressure put on people to look good. Every now and then I will go out in what all call my bum clothes, but that's when I am pretty sure I won't run into anyone I know. There are days when I will change my outfit 4 times before I decide on something. My husband calls me crazy, but I think guys have it so much easier that women!
