    Funny that you suddenly realised you were dressed 'down' for the day - I was talking to my landlady and realised I was wearing very shabby old sweat pants that have a sewn up hole in the seat, waaaayyyyy too big and my hair was totally mussed by the wind. She always looks chic and cute no matter the weather or what she is doing. I was doing dirty chores outside and didn't want to mess up any of the few clothes that fit me relatively well at the moment. Oh well, one day I will also wear nice clothes because I won't be between sizes after being obese.

    I've been working steadily at the jigsaw puzzle, but tonight the carnivores decided to 'help' me with it...

    I looked at my clothes and realized that all my 'bottoms' are from the thrift shop! Which is not a bad thing at all, but kind of weird. Mostly because I don't really have anywhere else to shop. There is a very good discount store here in Maine called Renys, but I have had no luck at all there recently. It's weird. When I was fatter, there were no size 12s. Now there are no size 6 or 8. Or if there is an 8, it is too big. If there is a 6, it is too small. If it fits, it is something I don't like. Well.

    I took care to wear something nice to church after yesterday's shopping trip! Feeling that I look nice is important to me, shallow as it may seem. It helps my confidence tremendously.

    Swan Lake was wonderful. Now I am dying to see The Nutcracker. There are so many good concerts and plays coming up for the holiday season I am going to be hard-pressed to see everything I want to.
    Had a great time

    I love our thrift store. Almost all my clothing is from there. I am looking forward to having some money again, and going on a shopping spree there, for a few new items. Oh, who am I kidding? A BUNCH of new items!

    Woke up with a bit of a sore back. I wonder if I got a bit carried away with the firewood? I load up my carriers as much as I can and they are quite heavy. LHT is good, but there are limits.

    Had some bacon for breakfast. Am going to swim, but we'll see how the back does. Working tonight. I hope the thrift shop is open, I need some little plates to put under my plants.

    Personally, I don't think looking nice is necessarily a sign of being shallow. To me it's a matter of self-respect and keeping up my morale. I try to dress nicely even when it's quite casual. And I will often wear clothes for staying at home that would be entirely acceptable for an office job. I don't like feeling like I'm letting myself go. Been there, done that, don't want the T-shirt.

    I don't even have a sweat-shirt. I didn't like to wear them when I was fat because they made me look huge, and I totally got out of the habit. I haven't been in a hurry to re-acquire it.

    Burgundy skinny jeans sound pretty good to me though. I've got one pair of skinnies, and it's true that it takes some getting used to, having the pants so tight through the legs. The jury is still out on whether I will get another pair in the future, but I am enjoying them, partly because of the bright colour. My tastes are pretty classic and neutral, but I do like adding a shot of colour or brightness to prevent drabness. Add a dash of joy somewhere, although it's more often a scarf for me than coloured pants... It's weird. I had just wrapped my mind around the fact that coloured pants were now an old-lady thing when they came right back, although in twills and denims. Strange how these things work.

    So true, and it wasn't so long ago that wearing a scarf was the height of frumpiness and now everyone is wearing them!

    I am a scarf fanatic. I don't think I ever stopped wearing them entirely (I was frumpy?) but for a good number of years now I wear one almost daily except in the heat. Even then, I often have one tucked in my purse in case I was caught in some over-zealous air-conditioning. That's what I love about scarves - they are practical and versatile. There are dozens of ways to wear any given scarf, depending on what you're wearing and what you want to accomplish. Yes, I have one on now...

    My collection of scarves is larger than I need, but I love the options. In the summer, it's usually just too damn hot for neck wear. From September to April, though, I usually at least have a scarf with me.
