I wear what I am comfortable in... And what I look good in. Isn't that of primary importance? I mean, how can I possibly dress in something that may be in 'fashion' but looks absolutely ridiculous on me.

Something she forgot to mention -
If you have smart outfits (or even some not so smart ...) that you feel comfortable in & look good on you, ... well, sooner or later you'll be at the height of fashion, because what's "in" changes all the time, & your style will become the "in" style for a while!!

A thousand years is but an instant. There's nothing new, nothing different. The same pattern over and over. The same clouds, the same music, the same insight I felt an hour or an eternity ago. There's nothing here for me now, nothing at all. Now I remember. This happened to me before. This is why I left. You have begun to find your answers. Although it will seem difficult, the rewards will be great. Exercise your human mind as fully as possible, knowing it is only an exercise. Build beautiful artifacts, solve problems, explore the secrets of the physical universe, savor the input from all the senses, feel the joy and sorrow, the laughter, the empathy, compassion and tote the emotional memory in your travel bag. I remember where I came from and how I became a human, why I hung around, and now my final departure is scheduled. This way out. Escaping velocity. Not just eternity, but infinity.

Who is talking about "haute couture"?
Haute couture & fashion haven't been the same thing for quite some time! In fact - a large proportion of what is worn in the haute couture shows just couldn't be worn in the streets .... :^) Wouldn't be practical ...

Haven't you noticed how "fashion" has had kids with their underpants showing above beltline of jeans almost falling .. possibly just held up by a prayer? I think that that fad is over now, but maybe it's only because it's too chilly for winter ...... & for a while, fashion required holey jeans ... sold with worn out or almost warn out patches ... Yep, jeans are part of fashion ... Sweats? Perhaps not right now, but maybe they'll come in?

I wear what I feel good in, and don't worry about fashion.

Stars for Slava & Rose. I get my clothes, furniture +++ as well from charity shops (except underwear), I reuse, recycle, buy local, I don't follow fashion at all - and I don't worship the $$$...
Thanks for posting, Evelyn

One should always wear what one feels comfortable in. Fashion statements are irrelevant.
