I'm wearing my San Diego Zoo sweatshirt with the giant panda on it. And undies.
The title of this thread does sound like a sleazy phone call from a stranger.

Mamma sent her two beautiful cotton nightgowns with plenty of room in them, in a box with a note that said, "That procedure is rather expensive and uncomfortable. I've saved you the trouble of it. Love, Mamma"

At the bottom hem of each nightgown was a drawstring.

Cat, didn't you ever see the "Jake, from State Farm" commercial? I am attired similarly to GG, and so glad I don't have a webcam.

Me too, PF! I don't own flannel. I can barely handle long sleeves.

I like the "homeless" look on a man, but somehow when a woman does it she just looks like a bag lady. LOL

I actually got dressed today. Completely. From skin out. No pans though. A dress instead. And I am not going anywhere. Maybe out to the kitchen to clean it.

I'll be wearing a maroon turtleneck (I LOVE turtlenecks! I have very many of all colors and designs!) under a pretty grey V-neck sweater, a grey and maroon weave wool skirt that is long (to the middle of my calf), dark grey cable tights and my favorite black suede ankle boots.

All my skirts are long as this one is. I like tights much better than pantyhose because pantyhose makes me itch. Many students come to school in worn-out jeans and sweatshirts and very casual attire, but I like to dress for school to show respect for the school and for learning. I'm sure this seems silly, but it's how I feel.

It doesn't seem silly at all Cat!! The way you dress for school also shows respect for yourself. These days so many young people seem to adapt their persona and behavior to the shabby way they dress in public. For most of them, shabby clothing is a choice having nothing to do with being able to afford decent attire. It's obvious in so many ways that you are a young woman of real quality. You do your parents proud.

Cat, Boston has so many school of higher learning that no matter where you walk, you see students. I have seen some with their pajama bottoms on and covered over with their coat. Their mode of dressing would horrify their parents if the ever saw their child.

So for you to dress "properly" tells everyone that you have respect for yourself. Kayelle is right. Don't ever change. Who knows. You may start a whole new trend in how to dress for college.
