More Proof

I'm really a guy in disguise:

"I once read that if you ask a guy what his favorite item of clothing is, he would pick the oldest thing he owns — some t-shirt he’s had since high school or nearly threadbare sweats. And if you ask a woman, she usually picks the last thing she bought."

My favorite item of clothing is a pair of jeans I've had since the mid nineties.

My favourite is a pair of jeans I've had since 1978, but they're too threadbare to wear now =(

Oh, the heartbreak. I hate when I have to 'retire' clothes I love. I had a jacket from when I was in a club in high school that I wore until it practically disintegrated on me. Still miss it sometimes.

I get very attached to clothes I like, things I feel comfortable in. It breaks my heart to throw things out, but my jeans are staying even if I can't wear them. There are much newer things I'd rather ditch because they don't mean anything, they're no substitute for the old faithfuls they replaced, they'll never be as comfy. I seldom buy new clothes anyway, only when I'm forced into it.

Me, too. I hate shopping for clothes. Remember the year everything was baby-poop green or mustard yellow? Or was that only in the States? Somebody was on drugs that year.

I HOPE that was just in the States! *shudders* Those colours don't look good on anyone!

It was horrendous. Think of the sixties gone mad. Even my husband was appalled. Apparently, there are people who sit around and decide what the colors will be in advance. I read about that somewhere. They were having a really bad year, I guess, mentally speaking. LOL

I don't think I've ever been fashionable, lol! I wear what I look reasonable in and feel comfortable wearing. Screw what anyone else thinks, I'm me, not a clone of everyone else.

Yay, thrift store. Everytime I see your icon, it makes me want tea. Thanks for that, I think.
