The simple bare necessities
talking with my mother yesterday about clothes, she contrasted her approach to mine by explaining that she desires a functional wardrobe. i protested that i too want a functional wardrobe. that while i want the items i have to thrill me beyond words, i want them to be functional pieces and my love for beautiful clothing never supersedes my value that they be functional ("functional" here meaning that i can safely and comfortably wear them and would want to, and do). she very much seemed to think that functional was an objective term. i'm not sure it is. obviously career/lifestyle might influence the type of clothing and amount strictly required to function effectively, but what about the extras?
in your opinion, how many shoes would a functional wardrobe consist of? and purses?
how do you define "functional" in terms of clothing?
