Re: Dressing up
I feel best when I feel like I look my best. I feel dowdy without makeup and I will not leave the house without it unless I'm picking up or dropping off my youngest and won't be getting out of the car.
My very first job, back in the mid 70's I was a hostess at a restaurant and we had to wear evening gowns at night and there was a strict dress code for patrons. Unheard of today.
Back in the early 60's no woman with self respect left the house without gloves. I have several pairs of my mother's white leather gloves, white leather evening gloves, and the super daring black leather evening gloves, alas I have no place to wear them.
When someone questions why you're not dressed the way they are, realize that their question comes from their anxiety that you aren't the same as them. Reply with, "I like being dressed up. I simply like it."
