oh my. so many ideas/comments floating around my head. first of all: makeover??? if i had the cash for one.... second of all: jammy jam = w00t! ok, on to serious matters.

i am one of those people who 'doesn't care.' i wear clothes that are supposedly appropriate for work, i.e. closed toe shoes, covering shoulders, no leg exposed. (i work in a pretty conservative office right now). i do that so that they'll pay me. other than that, it's whatever is clean on my floor when i wake up in the morning. i want people to pay attention to me for me not for how sexy i can dress. sometimes, yes, i do 'dress up' as it were, all sexy-like. when i'm going out with people i like or going clubbing/dancing/partying/whathaveyou. but it's for me. I want to feel sexier so i wear something sexier. it really is all about attitude. i could be sexy is greasy mechanics over-alls or a granny nightgown IF i felt sexy. plus, i do enjoy the occasional power suit when it's called for.

what is appropriate to wear to work/school? this one's tougher. school: i think that everyone should be allowed to wear whatever they are comfortable learning in. in HS (and some of college) i showed up to class in PJs. of course, some girls showed up in underwear. but when in history did we decide that female sexuality is bad that we have to hide it? (sometime last century, i know...) do i think it's appropriate for 15 year old girls to dress like whores? no. but what's your definition of 'whore'? same goes in the office. wear what YOU are comfortable wearing - but what your colleagues are comfortable seeing you in. but then that brings in the question of teamwork and community responsibility. if i am offending my neighbor do i continue because it's my life and i'll do what i want or do i stop out of love and courtesy to my neighbor? it's a choice.

alright, enough rambling. i am done posing MORE questions.

Hey! Jammy Jam is totally a very important serious matter!

Actually, on the other stuff, you're a pretty similar wavelength to me. One of the problems I have with my current (soon to be ending) job is that even though it is extremely rare that I have to talk to anyone in person, I don't have the option of even wearing jeans when I want to. Sometimes I like to dress up, sometimes I like to dress for comfort. On a day when I have to sit in my cube and work for 10 hours, I should definitely be able to do the latter, and I can't.

I don't see how you are saying you "don't care" though. It sounds like you do, but you want the decision to be left up to your mood (which I support) as opposed to dictated to you by others.

The denegrating of female sexuality is another thing I have a serious problem with. And while its related, that's a whole other can of worms to be opening up. I kinda touched on it a bit. I think being able to be attractive/sexy/cute/whatever is pretty important in life. I'm not saying it should be required, but I don't think genius intelligence should be required either. But I definitely don't approve of people looking at either one as though it was superfluous.

Speaking of wearing underwear in public...
