Do you think that, as a general rule, women have more clothes and shoes than men?
I am NOT a clothes horse, but our closet is packed FULL of stuff that I’ve pick up for work here and there over the years. If I didn’t work, everything I wore would fit in a couple of dresser drawers, but…I do work. And I get tickled when I run across an item of clothing that I really like (I do all my shopping at Goodwill or garage sales, btw, so it really is like a treasure hunt, one that is usually unsuccessful.) I’ve worn the same size for the last 30 years, so all of the clothes I have fit me. I have several pairs of low heeled semi-dress shoes for work.
And once in a blue moon I’ll actually purchase something that I’ll probably never wear (usually because it’s too formal for anything I do,) but I just like looking at it….
My husband, on the other hand: One suit, two ties, one dress shirt, a pair of boots, a pair of tennis shoes, casual dress shoes and formal dress shoes, three pairs of jeans and a handful of t-shirts, sweatshirts, and two shirts with his company name embroidered on them that he wears when he goes on sales calls.
Is it this way for most women do you think?
And before you holla, I clean closets out on a regular basis, about twice a year, and haul sacks and sacks of still wearable clothes back to Goodwill. But overall, all of these clothes, and nice clothes at that, seem so at odds with my “Who cares about fashion and long fingernails!” personality.
