Okay, okay, you’re laughing, looking at my clothes. I have never spent lots of money for what I wear, and always admired people who have sophisticated tastes for what they own and surround themselves with fine things. Some people have sense. I have none.

cinderellaPeople might judge me according to the way I dress, but, mostly, I judge me. What I wear and how I look inevitably affect how I feel about myself.

As a teenager, I wanted to be cool, wearing those trendy clothes like my friends did. But, I had no money. To be accepted by peers, I wore eccentric and assured personality. Phew…

Once I became an adult and started to have occasions to dress up and go out, I must admit, even I – a tomboy – enjoyed it. Though uncomfortable and self-conscious in fancy clothes and heels, being watched and desired made me think that I slightly looked good. I was young and had an escort. Wearing a certain amount of tension and having someone to fasten the hook on the back did me good.

Since I live alone and have no social obligation to be seen in public, I now wear my husband’s t-shirts. They are functional in the jungle, help comfort me, and have no hook on the back. Perfect.



In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “The Clothes (May) Make the (Wo)man.”
“How important are clothes to you? Describe your style, if you have one, and tell us how appearance impacts how you feel about yourself.”

  1. Yes, jungle doesn’t judge. 🙂 As for me, I never enjoyed dress-up, except one time when I went to the carnival disco night-out dressed as my father. He was a journalist, so I had a microphone, his hat, shoes, vest, coat, fake moustache and the name tag. Heels will always make me cringe since they are only about pleasing others and wouldn’t work in the jungle.


  2. When I was young and single I dressed up more because I had to play the singles game. Now that I don’t have to, holey sweatpants and tattered tee shirts are my game.
