<<how long do some of you hold on to your clothes? Do any of you
wear the same outfit for a few years? Do you care if students recognize
outfits from a couple years ago?>>
LOL! I've got a few sweaters that I can still wear that I had in college!
I tend to hold on to anything that still fits ;-)
As I said in an earlier post, I mainly wear black slacks during the late
fall and winter. In early fall and late spring I'll wear skirts because our
building isn't air conditioned and it gets HOT!!
Almost all of the stuff I wear to school winds up with some kind of stain or
paint on it, eventually. And as for the kids recognizing stuff, I'll even
point it OUT--saying "Hey--remember the day you turned around with the brush
in your hand and got paint on my sweater? Yep--it's still there!"
I'm soooo bad, but again, I have to try to dress within a dress code, I want
to be comfortable, and I don't have a lot of $$$ to spend on
clothes--especially clothes that are just going to take a hit from the
nature of the job and the materials we work with!
