What are you wearing today?
« on: March 14, 2008, 10:44:12 am »
Since I can't see my BetterMost friends here, I would love it if you would describe what you're wearing today (and all the days thereafter). Maybe I am overly interested in fashion. I rarely wear what's fashionable now, in fact, I have clothes in my closet that are 30 years old!! I love to hear about eclectic and vintage outfits, western wear a la Jack and Ennis, and what colours you like to wear. Since I live in Color-ado, I love bright colors and unusuall color combinations. But there's also the classic white shirt that I love to see on men and gals too. So please guys and girls, tell us what you're wearing!

Today I'm wearing a patterned skirt with a red background and green diamonds and pink carnations on it, a pink blouse, and a red wool jacket. I have some red silk slingbacks but I decided that would be too much red, so I wore black slingback heels instead. My only jewelry is a vintage necklace of red bakelite beads alternating with gold beads.

Now it's your turn!

right now , i'm in pajammas, having a cup of coffee, without cherry cake, which i do every morning when i sit down to read bettermost............
but to answer your question.....i'm in jeans all the time.  i have about 5 or 6 pairs.  if it's cold, i wear them with sweaters and hiking boots, and when it's warm , i wear them with t-shirts and runners.  in the summer, i wear jean cut-off shorts, or maybe a skirt, once in a while....but, i'm a jeans girl.  always and forever.  no surprizes in my wardrobe. ;D

Heya,

Fun idea for a thread! 8)

Right now I'm at work and I'm wearing an orange sweater/turtleneck with some brown wool pants that actually have a fine-plaid pattern in the fabric (and amidst the brown and tan colors there are a few bright colors, like bright pink, orange and aqua).  I'm also wearing the brown boots that I wore at the BBQ!

Right now tennis gear,just finished playing and cannot even summon up the energy to change.Normally as it is hot here skirts and T shirts and flip flops.
A far cry form England when I used to live in suits and 4 iinch heels.I had a shoe collection to rival Imelda Marcos.
Used to buy a lot of vintage Chanel on Ebay,just loved it.(hope that does not sound pretentious) One thing about a new country is that you have the opportunity to re invent yourself.
If it ever gets cold then its jeans and white shirt,boring I know.

Hi Frontranger!  Today I'm wearing a pair of Gloria Vanderbilt light blue jeans with a long sleeved white shirt, white socks & white Wal-Mart sneakers.  It was a bit "chilly" (60 degrees!) this morning in central Florida, so I decided on a long sleeved shirt.  I am not one who likes to shop for clothes, because I dislike most of the fashions today and I find it hard to find things that fit me comfortably.  I do shop for clothes, and buy clothes, but not often.  I have clothes in my closet and in my dresser drawers that are at least 10 years old or more; things I can't bear to part with.    I'm not big into jewelry either - I only wear one small golden ring - my deceased mom's wedding ring.  I have 2 piercings in each ear and today I am wearing a small diamond and a small hoop earring in each piercing in each ear, and a small silver cross around my neck on a silver chain.

Could you elaborate, Tru??  ::)

Otherwise, I will be forced to think of you as I last saw you, on the bridge at the second campsite or in the hot tub at the Banff Border Lodge, where you weren't wearing any (or much anyway!)

Well lets see I am wearing a check button down shirt that makes me look fat, a pair of kacki pants that looks okay except they are frayed a little at the bottom of each leg and by genuine animal hide boots I was wearing when I asked you if the Flying Nun could still fly after Vatican II.

I work at home most days, so my wardrobe can be pretty routine.  I am wearing navy blue capris & a pale pink 3/4 sleeve cotton shirt with a V-neck.  I will add a pair of Sketchers sneakers when I do leave the house, the kind with no laces (for the ultimate in laziness).   The only dress-up item I have on is a pair of white gold hoop earrings.  No makeup either (my husband says he prefers me that way), and my shoulder length hair is partially pulled back in a claw clip.  Not very exciting, I'm afraid!

I either dress completely comfortably to work at home, in business attire for meetings, or formally for occasions.  My daily wardrobe used to be a little spiffier before my daughter was born.



Hey -- just yesterday I bought a pair of those, Susiebk. And I'm wearing them today. So far I like them. I just love a new pair of WHITE tennis shoes! (We call sneakers, tennis shoes in Arkansas. LOL.)

Then -- just jeans and a purple sweater, Front-Ranger. I'm at home for the day. YAY!
