Re: A fashion disaster

I have an entire lounging about the house wardrobe that is, well, not as big as my leaving the house wardrobe, but close. It includes a whole pairs of fleece pants, boxers, old t-shirts, wife-beaters, sweaters, sweatshirts, several pairs of slippers, fuzzy socks, flip flops and dresses of the "throw on when its too hot for anything else" variety.

I'm just one f those people who changes into lounge wear immediately upon arriving home for the evening. I think it stems from having worn uniforms at school...

I think so, I wore uniforms or dresscode K-12 and I do the same thing.

Re: A fashion disaster

Arite...

For further disambiguation, what I meant to ask was, "Who uses ALL THE SAME clothes for both Inside and Outside wear?"

I'm with HoldFast on this one. My undershirts/house clothes go in drawers, my outside/public clothes go on hangers. My clubbing/nice clothes just sit on their free wire-frame from-the-dry-cleaners hangers.

My shoes stay stacked in boxes, my hats stay kept in shoe boxes. Jackets in my jacket closet...

which makes me wonder; who on this BBS has the most pairs of shoes? Slippers don't count.

I'm not sure how many pairs...but I had three boxes full of shoes when I moved. That was rather embarrassing when someone actually pointed it out.

I have two pairs of shoes. My normal pair of comfortable walking shoes and my black sensible pair.

What they are supposed to go with I don't know as I don't own a suit.

I've only got about 28 or 30 pairs, so I'm sure I'm not the winner here. That number will probably go up by 2 today, as I have specific needs to fill and am off work...

I will point out that all are quite practical with the exception of two pairs that I keep on hand for formal occasions. I can't tolerate uncomfortable shoes.

I might do well in the Men's Division with about 30 pairs IIRC, but I'm stuck in the back of the peloton overall I'm sure. I might do reasonably well in the retail value stakes though, since a lot of my shoes are higher end. Even there though, women's shoes can be pricey too.

I'm now looking to upgrade existing pairs for something nicer rather than increasing the range. I need a new pair of sleek black loafers to replace a pair that are a little too large and have a big nick in the leather on the toe, and a well-made pair of white/tan spectators to replace the knockabout pair of cheap ones I have.

I found a small tear (0.5cm) in a relatively new jacket today in a moderately prominent position. Will need to find a good reweaver to see if they can do anything to fix it. I've temporarily sewn it closed to prevent it growing... oh well...

Re: A fashion disaster

Hmm thinking about it ~ I'm probably nicer dressed casually at home rather than out.
Casual 'out' is jeans/cargo pants and long sleeved top ~ who can compete in public with Mrs Obamas' arms now
Home is long, floaty skirts and little tops *Wuthering Heights played in the background*
As for shoes ~ when I didn't have a car I realised I had no walking shoes whatsoever! Flats hurt because my legs are used to heels and heels are not made for walking. I have however cured this dilemma ~ I've got a car

Re: A fashion disaster

I have about 9 pairs of shoes, which are all in use, rather than laying about in boxes (yes, I have 9 legs ). What I don't wear regularly, I take to the local charity shop - as someone there will be glad to have it and make better use, I'm sure.

I have my pair of shoes and my pair of sneakers; and I have a second pair of dirty sneakers held in reserve for messy treks.

Gah, I'm way behind HF and FL with only 20 pairs of shoes! 22 pairs if I include my "shitter shoes"

Sweatpants and old t-shirts @ home, most definitely. Nighties and tank tops to sleep in. I'll wear the former to go downstairs to the mailroom in, while the latter never leaves the house.

Re: A fashion disaster

I have a couple of pair of what I guess you'd call pajama bottoms that I wear to bed-- they came that way, with no shirt-- one pair is blue and the other is black and covered with the Twilight Zone logo and iconography.
