What influences you the most when you go out to purchase new clothing? Is it sales, comfort, trends or something else?
I always enjoy a bargain and comfort in clothing is a huge plus for me. Trends I usually don’t fall into those patterns because they usually come and go out of style so fast it usually don’t last.May 29, 2018 at 4:53 pm #188059
I don’t buy new clothes often, I have styles I like that I sort of stick to, I’ll go out once in a while usually when a new season starts and buy a few things, like shirts or bottoms or something. I’ll look at sales but I’m not too concerned that way, mainly if I feel I’ll look and feel good wearing it.
My most recent purchase was a pair of flip flops, I haven’t worn those in many years, but I needed something I can just slip on quick for making quick trips out of my house.

I sometime go specifically for things, but generally find in just browsing I find things better. Knowing that I have little spare space means I have to be hard and I seldom buy things that I don’t need.May 30, 2018 at 9:09 am #189072May 28, 2019 at 5:09 pm #201536
I usually don’t shop unless I’ve broken some of my clothes, as I have a 31M size boobs. I don’t really know what I was thinking when I had them done, but my clothes usually break within a month or so of buying them. I buy bigger sizes, but they just look really weird.May 29, 2019 at 6:40 am #201549
There are shops around online which do unusual sizes as they can focus the limited demands. Otherwise it’s taking up sewing to alter your clothes.

I tend to buy clothing as & when I want to. I have picked up many items and have quite an extensive wardrobe. What influences me is personal style and preference. I don’t follow fashion trends in magazines: I choose clothes based on what works for me. However, I still love being feminine and wearing skirts and dresses and wonderful shoes. Because I LOVE shoes. Especially in summer. Women’s shoes are beautiful. Although I am not able to walk in high heels, so have to pass on that particular fashion item.
Anyhow, I dress well and smartly. I seldom wear jeans. I avoid T-Shirts: I hate them. I don’t wear tracksuits, either. I look good and love a variety of personal styles.

Ive done the trendy thing, the fashionable thing , Ive done the business look, Ive done the mummy thing, now I wear what suits my lifestyle. Im retired and enjoy walking in the country with my dogs, I rarely go out to dinner or anywhere else and I dont do social stuff so I have 3 pairs of walking shoes, 2 pairs of rainboots,a real rain mac, and winter parka, loads of jeans and long sleeve tshirts but only one nice pair of shoes and 4 dresses.
I have to admit clothes just dont motivate me anymore in fact they stifle me a lot of the time. I cant wear high necks or tight clothes or man made or woolen knitted fibres so there isnt much fun in going shopping for me.June 3, 2019 at 7:11 am #201634
Over the years I have had times when I have done most things. I have a good variation of clothes. I prefer skirts and dresses rather than jeans, but, for instance, when walking in the countryside they are more practical. I like to dress for the occasion. Plain T-Shirts are Ok but I hate logos and adverts. Being interested in fashion to some extent with my drawing means I have some idea, but prefer to avoid the latest thing which is soon yesterday.
