1. When do you feel at your most attractive?
1. When do you feel at your most attractive?
I feel most attractive after a hot shower, putting on my unique/hand-made jewelry, perfume & and clean pair of jeans. I never wear make-up, and my unique socks & a pair of Birkenstocks make me feel ALL ME.... the old Hippie never died!
2. Do you notice women on the street? If so, what sort of women do you tend to notice or admire?
I only notice women on the street if they seem to be "phony" or overly-made up. I especially notice women who have ridiculous manicured/fake fingernails. My own fingernails grow so fast & I simply don't understand how one can do anything with finger-fangs.
3. What are some things you admire about how other women present themselves?
First off, I notice a woman's posture. If she's walking tall, head up and makes eye contact, I find these things most admirable. If a woman speaks using poor grammar or comes across as controlling in tone of voice, I avoid ANY interaction with that person. hand-made jewe
After a strict upbringing & going to high school with a dress code, my MOMENT in fashion was August, 1969 at Woodstock. I fell in love with the Hippie, Shabby Chic look & now, at age 65, I STILL dress that way. I finally felt free...a rebirth, so to speak. Another moment was a bra burning protest I attended at the first college I attended. I don't need a bra and haven't worn on since 1972! I can't stand to see women in tank/sleeveless tops with their bra straps showing! Take the damn thing off & toss it!
It would be arrogant of me to recommend shopping rules to anyone. I don't care what others purchase. I have my favorite stores & websites. If I had to say one thing, it would be: "why do you wear pantyhose?".
I don't even own a pair.
As an old Hippie who went to Woodstock, I participated in a women's lib rally where we burned our bras. I haven't worn won since 1972. I don't need them. If you have large breasts, you may NEED to wear a bra, but PLEASE do NOT let the straps show beneath a tank to or sleeveless garment! I want to smack these women upside the head...it's disgusting.
I have never engaged in such a conversation. I do, however, steer clear of women who dress as if they are millionaires (e.g., over-dressed), are dressed for the corporate workplace (i.e., stiff & stifled), or those who dress in a thrown together frumpy outfit.
My guiding principles are: Mind your own business; keep you mind stimulated but not cluttered with minutia; keep a daily calendar; NEVER worry; know that the only thing you can control is yourself (and then only sometimes); don't try to change anyone else; know that you can't be good at everything so when you fail, learn from the experience & move on; know when to shut up; meditate daily; only work in environments that suit you; change your career when you get bored with the one you have; always keep learning.
Blue jeans!! Hippie tops, Birkenstocks, Toms shoes, Clogs; unique satchels preferably handmade in Nepal; tie dye, only floor-length dresses & long skirts. I buy these things as I am "stuck in 1969" & don't plan to change a thing about my attire as this free-form style IS ME! I detest flip-flops!
Although I have given my daughters jewelry that was meaningful to them, once I give someone a gift, the joy comes from giving. I do not recall experiencing any emotions beyond the time that the person experienced the pleasure of receiving the jewelry. I do donate clothing to Good Will & the Salvation Army that always makes me feel like I'm fulfilling someone else's needs.
DISCO! DRESS SUITS! SWEAT PANTS! ILL-FITTING CLOTHES! ANYTHING THAT APPEARS IN VOGUE magazine! I'm fine being a free spirit & have a strong disdain for wearing what is advertised as "the latest fashion ". I don't care what other people wear. I insist on wearing my hippie style. The only exception was during the time that I was a practicing RN wear I wore funky scrubs. I WILL NOT WEAR ANYTHING BROWN OR ORANGE!!
Being adopted, I never bonded to my adoptive mother. She wore drab, cheap polyester pantsuits & orthopedic shoes. I learned to sew my own clothes. She was 5' 0" tall & I am 6' 0" tall. She was short, fat & dumpy & I'm tall & lithe. I wouldn't emulate her manner of dress in any way whatsoever as she was dowdy. I was always embarrassed to be seen in public with her, so I rarely went anywhere with that woman.
Absolutely not! Most often, people copy me!
Going to Woodstock in 1969 forever changed my style. I will forever be a Hippie & I don't care who wears what as I'm not into changing my style of free expression just because some magazine model or ad shows a new trend.
I do my own thing. What on earth does politics have to do with the way I dress?
6' 0" tall, thin, flat chested, small butt, no waistline, rather androgynous. I'm perfectly accepting of my body even though I have worn eyeglasses since the age of five.
With an IQ of 160 at age 5 and holding five college degrees, I am ALWAYS needing to challenge my mind, as learning is my reason for being. Loved being a professor of biostatistics, but being a therapist got old as most female clients were just whining spoiled little kids. I left the career of Professional Nursing as I don't like working with women. I find them to be catty, back-stabbing, gossipy small-talking bimbos. I don't like shallow, stupid or ignorant people & actively avoid them.
Some say I'm a pessimist, but I refer to my self as a realist. I'm definitely not an optimist. I have no difficulty expressing my feelings. I am blunt and have no concern for other's reaction to my words should they inquire as to my beliefs or opinions on a subject. I opt for a simple lifestyle where I am content as I believe "happiness" comes in a few spectacular, but achievement-related events. I'm into LET IT BE & MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS.
I am wearing jeans, a tie dye sleeveless long tank top, bare feet, many earrings, one necklace and my signature perfume. I wear my hair short so I don't have to waste time & money styling it. I sport 9 tattoos all gotten after the age of 59 each one of which represents something significant in my life.
It shows who I am....comfortable in my own skin & what you see is what you get!
No one. I ALWAYS shop alone.
The word "institution" is a disturbing word to me. It connotes conforming to ridiculous rules, time-cards, robotic and a caged-animal mentality. I purposefully avoid places that one might term "an institution", except for the Smithsonian Institution, for example.
I most definitely have MY STYLE as a shabby chic hippie. Regarding taste, to each his or her own. I don't care what others wear, except if it's exceptionally tacky. No one is allowed EVER to tell me what to wear because I would purposefully disobey their orders. Style to me means individuality. Taste to me connotes conforming to norms, trends or others' expectations.
No. I made my own wedding dress as I think it's ridiculous to spent thousands of dollars on a fussy outfit one wears for less that 24 hours.
I find this question to be a stupid one.
My entire home, my vehicle, the books I read, the bumper stickers on magnetic paper stuck to my Miata convertible, the people I have as friends all have a similar style to mine. As a loner, who really cares anyway.
I cannot recall the last time I felt fear.
I could write an essay in response to this question. To be succinct, OF COURSE I KNOW WHAT I LIKE & more importantly, what I DISLIKE. I know myself, my body, my mind, my strengths, my weaknesses, my character flaws & what's in my being VERY WELL. ME, MYSELF & I are best friends. I'm extremely discerning/choosy which comes from being astutely aware of my surroundings at all times. I'm a people-watcher. I prefer to observer rather than to participate. These characteristics likely arose from my trying many things in life, moving around the country, and knowing that knowledge is power.
My adoptive parents set such a poor example of what to be, I prefer to say that they taught me WHAT NOT TO WEAR. I was an avid reader of "Seventeen" magazine when it was an over-sized publication. I picked things up from the colleges I attended.
I would rather be evaluated as bright, intelligent, astute and sharp as I have NEVER tried to be sexy or alluring.
Every person who visits my home or gets to know me says they "are soooo comfortable & relaxed in my presence" as I am very tolerant of others' styles. I am confident and have high self-respect. When one is OK with who they are, it spills over. Comfort is my #! priority in all facets of my life. I'm confident because I've succeeded in most everything I've tried, and have learned from my mistakes.
Wear your hair anyway you wish. Wear whatever clothes you feel comfortable wearing. Do NOT DRESS TO IMPRESS---which I find to be a shallow exercise in futility. It's one's inner that matters most anyway. I wouldn't want to be a "fashion expert".
Unkempt hair, bad breath, bad teeth, unclean clothes or a dirty body, worn out clothing, too much perfume/cologne, BLACK VINYL HANDBAGS (especially cheap ones), wearing anything brown or orange, too much make-up, high heels, big butts, obese people, poor posture, mean/frowning expressions on faces.
This is another stupid set of questions. I don't like mirrors. I do my thing. If others judge me, they own the problem, because if I'm satisfied with how I look before I go out, that's ALL that matters. I don't seek or need approval from anyone but myself.
Cleanliness first. Speed second. People are too vain in general.
REALLY?? Achievement in my vocabulary does NOT have anything to do with attire. If anything, I attempt to please myself & be comfortable for that day's activities.
Dressing up implies that one is going somewhere somewhat more formal. So I have "formal" jeans & "informal jeans". lol I do put on something a bit more refined when 'dressing up', but still maintain that ol' Hippie in me. I'm not here to impress anyone. I go out to enjoy myself.
ME: free style, unique, funky, eclectic, cool, stuck in the 60's
NOT ME: suits, gowns, expensive jewelry, heels, fussy
As I have lived all across the USA, I have been exposed to many of our 'subcultures'. Specifically East Coast formality, Southern rednecks, Chi-town eclecticism, living my most formative years in the Woodstock era.
A strict dress code was enforced during elementary school, junior high & high school. Pantyhose weren't invented until I left for college. I had such a disdain for arbitrary rules on dress that it an indelible image was impressed on my being to "do my own thing" & let it evolve as I evolve.
At my age, I no longer need to look professional. When I was a professor, I wore khakis & long sleeve blouses or simple skirts & tops with flats. When I was a practicing RN, I wore funky scrubs & plastic clogs. I recall vividly my dislike of the "white shirt, black tie, IBM" image. Got rid of all the 'professional' suits, etc. but kept some of the scrubs. They're good for anytime wear, out or in or even as pj's.
I do not work now.
If there were any such activity that required a dress code, at this stage of my life, I would boycott the experience.
Asked and answered. See above
I liked wearing hospital scrubs, but in schools that have dress codes, I hated it.
Again: asked and answered
I wear men's stuff all the time. With my height & body style, there are plenty of ways to make men's attire feminine!
The 1960's & early 1970's, stopping when disco came in around 1975.
I WILL NOT willingly have my photograph taken. I am not photogenic at all. I look worse in photographs than I do in the mirror.
There are only a few photographs of me in existence. I don't like them. They don't represent how I see myself.
Twiggy, Haight-Ashbury Hippie style, Mod from London
NO! What a boring dream that would be! Wow. What response can a person give to this ambiguous question?
Anything other than how I dress now.
Exactly what I wear now and have worn for decades.
Good grief NO!
Dress the way you want. You're not here to impress anyone with your attire. It's what's in your mind and your soul that matters.
I ALWAYS wear my signature perfume. It's the one thing besides earrings that makes me feel 'finished'.
Be clean & neat.
I don't wear make-up

A floor-length, royal-purple, velvet Victorian dress complete with puffy sleeves & ruffled collar is my favorite item of clothing. My favorite piece of jewelry is a large, hand-made pewter peace sign on a suede cord necklace.
I purged my closet. Everything I have in my closet I wear.
Cool handbags, my signature perfume, my favorite jeans, boots, hand-made things from Nepal
The floor-length, royal-purple Victorian velvet dress.
That velvet floor-length Victorian dress. Yes I still wear it.
My first pair of "elephant Bell-bottom jeans" that I turned into a skirt.
Luckily, after a decade of looking, I just recently ordered a mid-calf length denim coat. When it came the other day, I changed out the buttons to suit me.
I am a bit OCD about storing everything in my house.
A pair of large diamond hoop earrings with diamonds on the inside as well as on the outside.
I shop for clothes when I need them, when they're on sale, or when I take a trip to my fave store Hippie Gypsy. I also shop online from Etsy & Amazon.
I live on a limited budget so I know very well the difference between want and need.
I wear a Fuschia water-resistant digital watch at all times.
Not that I recall. I don't engage in conversation with strangers often.
In Junior High School I noted I was the worst dressed kid in school. I closed up and stayed shy & withdrawn until I escaped to college.
