Hi Lora/Cindy,According to my mother anyway, I have terrible fashion sense as well. I suppose that, when I was younger, she dressed me rather conservatively and, because I'm blind, I tended not to observe/think about these things. So of course, now that I'm thirty and have been dressing this way for so long, conservative is what feels most comfortable. (Since we are on the subject of jeans, this would mean jeans that rest high on the waist rather than the hips and do not drag on the floor.) <smile>
Regarding blending in with coworkers, I simply ask what type of clothing is appropriate and then go with that. (Business casual + nice blazer+nice blouse+cotton twill slacks; Suit + pants-suit--if I have to wear full-scale panty-hose, I get runs the size of Texas or Alaska, depending on my luck of the day.) <g>

You'll be interested in a section of a book O'm validating now, criss cross--written with great humor. The girls want to wear jeans that are fashionable--bell-bottom jeans that drag onthe floor--but their mothers want them dressed in something else that they think is more appropriate. So the girls somehow bought the jeans and change behind a rhdodenron bush into them before going to school.

My problem is, I have terrible fashion sense. Of course, one of the best ways to tell what's fashionable and what's not is through observation. What are your coworkers wearing? What looks good? What doesn't? What is in style this season, and how does that change next season? I'm curious how others obtain these answers, and how you approach shopping for clothes, especially if you might have to do it alone. I'm happy to discuss this on list, but it's definitely far afield from books. If you want, we could set up a mailing list somewhere, if there's enough interest, so we don't spam other Booksharians.
