63. Is there a certain look you feel you’re expected to like that you have absolutely no interest in? What is it? Why aren’t you interested?

Getting very very dressed up for a night out. I've tried to enjoy it but I just don't think I do. I feel stupid and like I've tried too hard.

I dont dress my age. I dress my mood.

crop tops and loom bands. just no.

skinny jeans, people keep saying get some skinnies, but nope, they make me look like Gru in the Minion movies, they make me look even more top heavy than I am, I have very spindly, bony legs and they look utterly silly with my big upper body.

Canada Goose. Just too damn expensive.

Crazy fashion victim fashion. I hate it. Its almost worse than super boring dressing. Its for the sake of showing how much fashion you've bought. It has nothing to do with personal expression.

I'm really not interested in anything "sexy" or form-fitting. It's not that I don't think I have a slammin' body or anything; it's just that I'm not interested in specifically dressing for the male gaze. Maybe I'm still uncomfortable with expressing myself as an overtly sexual being, or uncomfortable with not having control of the degree to which men will sexualize me. I know that a lot of women can feel super empowered wearing something that shows off their body in a specific way, but I'd rather wear something that shows off my personality. I'm trying to phrase this in a way that doesn't sound condescending to women who like dressing sexy, and I don't think I'm really succeeding. That last sentence basically sounded like I was saying that I'm smarter than women who dress sexy. I don't think that. Maybe I just don't see myself as "sexy" and so I actively avoid that look.

No, I'm interested in them all, I'd like to explore as much as I can.

Not that I know.

almost all of them- they look contrived and require more shopping, which is the plan for the corporate masters

I'm not really into leather jackets, but my love of dark colors and neutrals would let leather fit into my closet nicely. It's just not really my style.

I feel like I'm supposed to be into business casual looks, since that's what most women my age buy a lot of for their working lives. I just think it's tacky on some level and like, I'd rather look like *me* than look like some mid-level approximation of someone in a higher-level job.

high heels. again.
