My philosophy is quite different. I always
make sure I'm made up and dressed to go out/meet folks. Just the way I am. In fact, at about 4 every afternoon I go to the bathroom and freshen up my hair and makeup and brush my teeth. Have always done that.
Funny story, though, about going to Wal-Mart one time back when Buck and I lived in Washington, DC. You want funny looks....
One evening we'd attended a black tie diplomatic event and were out quite late. On our way home we realized we needed something for breakfast in the morning. Wal-Mart. They were the only place open with full merchandise open at that late hour. We stopped.
We were fully decked out. Buck in a tux, shiny shoes, etc. and I was in a long evening gown, hair all done up, makeup extra nice, evening clutch bag, evening shoes, and sparkly jewelry. We were quite the pair but...at Wal-Mart at 2 a.m.? Yep.
Needless to say we certainly garnered some long stares, but we received top notch service.
