First things first


for some people, the reward for a long day is getting into sweats or pajamas as soon as possible, either because it's symbolic of shedding the day and the role they played in it, or because it's a matter of comfort and desiring to increase it.

do you feel differently about your clothes at the end of the day than when you start in the morning? do you always change into something more comfortable as soon as you get home?

i don't tend to change until my shower in the evening, staying in my "day" clothes...all day.

That's a great photo.

I stay in them all day, too. Probably a function of wearing what is comfortable (shoes, too, but not in the house). I used to tell people that I chose my clothing with an eye toward whether or not I could sleep in it, and that is not that far from the truth.

Have you ever worn something for the first time that you couldn't wait to get home to take off? Not because it's painful or anything, just uncomfortable to have on? Once in a while it's so bad, the offending garment will go directly from my back to the trash. Now *that* feels good.

My partner always laughs at me because I do everything in my couture...if I get home at the end of the day and have to weed the garden I'll do it in whatever I'm wearing. The concept of grubby-clothes is foreign to me. I feel that drudge work is less so if there's not a big production around getting specially dressed for it. (If I have to do something really icky though I'll do it after pilates when I'm in my workout outfit. :))

After 7:30pm, I must be comfortable! Most of what I wear isn't terribly uncomfortable, but I'm willing to suffer for fashion a bit during the day. Once twilight comes, I let it all hang out.

GenX Theorist...I have vacuumed in a tiara, and also in a vintage navy sequined dress (not at the same time, though).

i've slept in jeans, dresses, silk, etc.

iheartfashion - i will concede that 9 times out of 10, i do take my shoes off when i get home, even though none of my shoes are uncomfortable.

anyone want to come over and help me pack?

i can't wear ugly sweat pants, if i'm wearing lazy clothes i still want to feel attractive in them. this is probably a bit on the neurotic side though.

i always have to take off my shoes, definitely the most uncomfortable thing i wear, and the bra and panties grr i hate those...i tend to put on a cute comfortable summer dress to relax.
