I had to wear suits on my last job so having some extra ties around saved me some money. The suits didn't fit me anymore.
do you have more suits than underwear?????
I don't own suits anymore. Way back then I used to like wearing them but now I have no use for them. Besides, if god doesn't like me in jeans, well, it's his loss.
I threw them all out - ALL!
I own a Hugo Boss suit - I will never own a cheap suit again.
I assume this is a men's commisuration thread then?!
My dubbery was all prarie skirts and loose blouses, worn buttoned up with camisoles and slips underneath, a la Big Love. We were checked for slips, # of buttons left open, and panties worn under pantyhose (redundant). Giant grandma briefs only! I was so happy when I got a full slip--1 less layer of elastic and nylon around the waist. Straight skirts not allowed--they hugged your curves too much. There had to be flowing fabric. Oh god I am depressed just thinking of it.
Once I bought a businesslike pencil skirt, blouse and pumps and was turned into the elders "for looking like a prostitute" because my kneecaps were showing and I was wearing black hosiery! I had to go in the back room to be counseled!
Suits worn by dub women were unheard of--too worldly and yearning after a career.
Nowadays I suits. I wear them year round, except in the hottest part of summer. *swoon* This morning I was trying to figure out a way to wear a suit and not be too uncomfortable. lol
I have a ton of JWish dresses on a rack in my basement. I thought about having a "calling all JW women garage sale, modest dresses and long skirts galore!" But I do have a ton of panties. What can I say, I like my options!
prefer to hang loose. Yeah . . . I know . . . I'm neanderthal.
If you want to get rid of your suits and do a good turn the Men's Warehouse is doing a clothing drive this month:
Thank you, Mrs Jones, that's a fabulous solution.
I'd also like to add, from past experience volunteering at a homeless shelter for battered women, that residents need ladies' business clothes for job interviews and going forward.
Many are traditional homemakers with small children in tow. They are rebuilding a *new* home away from their abusers, and becoming self-supporting for the first time in their lives.
Even for an entry-level position, it's a booster to have a classic, yet still stylish, ladies' business wardrobe to choose from. Good quality "costume" jewelry, too. Every little bit helps our sisters succeed.
I put on "the Complete Suit of Armour" after a friendly salesman assured me that it would protect me from the machinations of the Devil. Turns out I was shopping in the wrong store. Eph 6:11
