"Consciously or not, every dressing decision is informed by some sense of what we want to project." -Collette Lyons
Disagree. In 100 plus degree weather, I don't think about being fashionable.
I dress like a slob and present “I don’t give a shit” about how I like.
Sometimes yes, sometimes no.
I my case mostly no.
No. Sometimes I get dressed in the dark, especially this time of year. I'm not trying to project squat, consciously or unconsciously. I'm just trying to stay warm and un-arrested.
To an extent, unless I’m dressing for myself. On my birthday I like to wear either a dress or my fandom shirts. Same on exam days. Doing so make me feel happy. :)
Sure. My projection would be ‘I don’t give a fuck.’ 😄
That's usually my projection as well!
But Matt you wear shorts most of the time! Did you wear shorts today?😂
I had to wear my military uniform. But, if I'm not in that, I'm in shorts. I love wearing shorts! 20 degrees outside? No problem!
That’s funny. My mother asked me if my soon to be husband had any long pants. She got to see him in long pants at the wedding. I miss my Mama. 😢
Comfort over looks or you just want to show your legs off to the ladies 😎
Did you mom pass @icamino ?
Yes, Cookie, she had a stroke the day after the wedding, and died on Aug 9. I miss her.
Day after your wedding? That's a major bummer. Sorry to hear that
Cookie, that's my jam right there!
TY , it was really good that the family was all together, it had been so long. She was really happy.
What timing Camino. It’s like she waited for it and everyone got to say goodbye.
Matt I’m sure they had you in mind when they wrote it 🕺💃🏻
Yes, Cookie, it was 🙂
I'd agree, but with one qualifier: money. If you have no money, and all you have in your closet is old shirts and old jeans, even if you wanted to "project" a certain image, it wouldn't be possible.
Attitude says so much more than any outfit.
And what exactly is some guy in Seattle who wears shorts in the winter trying to project ?😂
I tend to disagree. If you choose to underdressed or overdress for an occasion you suggest that you either didn't think about the event or don't care. Either option leaves a poor impression and makes you less desirable both as an employee and a companion. Additionally, specific choices like tattoos and dreadlocks will automatically put you at a competitive disadvantage against your friends
Royal, welcome to SOH. You have just met one of the most conservative women on here. I don’t have dreadlocks and neither does my husband. We don’t do tattoos, piercings and I wear one pair of earrings at a time. I would never wear flip flops or crack gum on a job interview.
My husband’s wardrobe on weekends consists of NY Giants t-shirts, sweatshirts, jackets, hats and sweatpants. Even his mug has the Giants on it. Unless it’s a special occasion I’m fine with the way he dresses as long as he’s clean, which he is 🙂
Dare I ask how he feels about football this year? Injuries are a part of it, sure, but going from a major playoff contender in the preseason to "I think might still be able to beat a high school team" in just half the season? That's a major bummer. But you can still root for another team in blue (& green)!
I knew you would say it.
At this point they might as lose the rest of the season so they have best draft picks next year. Total embarrassment for sure. He has the tickets and still goes. I’m boycotting though.
At least it's likely Just a one year slump. Teams like the browns on the other hand... 💩
No, most of the time I want to just be comfortable. On occasion, I care about the image I project, but not every day.
So you're projecting you others that you don't care what they think and that you're more concerned about comfort?
Matt thinks we all walk around like Heidi Klum when we go to the mall 🤳
Matt you look a bit like Garth Brooks, thinner though.
Thinner, as in... hotter? Sexier? Manlier?
Yep, I’m projecting, yah!, I felt up to going to going to the grocery, the doctor, or a funeral !
He has blue eyes, dark hair.
Saw him on tv recently and that’s what I thought. ☺️
@icamino hugs 😔
This has been a shit year for a lot of people.
😂 not so much
