I blame Judy Butler b/c this little femme couldn’t get thru the day without a little performance or too. :p

(Jorts = jean shorts, and they’re this year’s fashion disaster.)

I’m sorry that dressing like adults is a thing of the past.

I am afraid you would be very disturbed by my teaching attire.

I seem to be the only person on this thread who feels like she would have ample occasions to wear something like SJP’s outfit — and I think it’s a reflection of the particular social group I run with, which engages in a lot of “costuming.” That can mean anything from simply “dressing up” to quite elaborate creations involving lots of layering, wigs, gloves, masks, etc. This dressing subculture is clearly a direct response to the rise of casual attire “uniforms” that do not require any thought: my friends take dressing up beyond the norm and go to the other extreme of intense planning and creativity for major social occasions. Dress-up is fun — particularly when there are no rules or expectations.

Of course, I’d never have anywhere to wear it. That’s one thing I like about going to see the local symphony perform, it’s an excuse to dress nice, and most other people there (who are often senior citizens) are dressed nice too. Of course I don’t sit down in the cheap seats with the masses either, as for me it’s experience as much as hearing the music.

I kind of like the relaxed dress codes, also in the West here. Business casual means I can wear khakis, a sweater, and ballet flats one day or nice slacks and a crisp looking collared shirt with a nice cardigan over it the next. I love to surf Nordstroms or other sites and look at their trendy outfits. I don’t really have the waistline, budget, or skill at heeled shoes though to pull a lot of it off.

I don’t think you have to be short and stick thin to wear heels. I think honestly it just takes practice. Like Indyanna’s college students, I’m probably visibly “practicing” when I occasionally wear heels. I think better to get the hang of it younger or in college rather than be older and still trying to figure out how to walk in heels or how to wear makeup. I mean, it’s nice that society didn’t force these things on me, but because they’re “expected” I have to hide my novice level at them now that they interest me.

When I go out to dinner, I want people to look as if they thought about what they put on. I’m not picky beyond that, but…
