    I think we have the same idea of cute but different ideas of effort. Just thinking about clothing stresses me out. I don't start thinking about it until I'm out of the shower and dried off. Then I generally just grab some jeans and then pick out a shirt. I wear the same shoes (vans) everyday. So really the only decision is on the shirt and that typically is determined by how warm I predict the day will be. I don't generally use a mirror in the mornings.


    I get very anxious about dressing myself.


    well on days where i'm just home and not going anywhere other than the store or out for coffee or whatever i do the same...just go in my closet and grab a shirt and some jeans/skirt.

    i guess the extra effort i put into it on days that it matters more...really is just the thinking about it beforehand.

    DO you have a good mental inventory? The ability to recall everything you have and mentally combine them? I feel like I don't have a good mental inventory. My ESFJ friend has like a complete mental list of everything she owns.

    Excluding everything else like showering and brushing teeth.

    If I am wearing more formal clothing... I just need to take a few minutes to iron out any creases.

    After putting on clothes, just a quick gel.

    That is as far as appearance goes.

    With the whole ordeal, I'd say 5 minutes with formal clothing (includes ironing, which takes up most of the time)

    and not even a minute just for casual clothes

    Do you have a life situation that requires you to put effort into what you put on?

    Do you feel like you need help in putting things together?

    Used to spend more.

    Occasionally I'll set up my outfit the night before just to avoid wasting time in the morning.

    I shower, flat-iron my hair, get dressed, toss on some foundation, put on some rings and bracelets and earrings, and then I'm out the door. I'll put on eyeliner and eyebrow powder sitting at the light near work.

    ehh... I guess the life situation is 1.) being single and 2.) wanting to not be shunned by my peers/ wanting to feel cool. I swing back and forth between wanting to be stylish and attractive and then being very resistant to the idea of having to put any effort into how I look. OR
    I do feel like I need help when it comes to clothes but maybe more my attitude around it? When I try to plan what I wear I feel like it just doesn't really work. I get an overwhelmed feeling at having to put together makeup and shoes and accesories and all the details. When I do dress up for special events (weddings/events) I usually have to spend a lot of time researching and usually I still go with something "safe". When I think about fashion it just seems frivolous and so when I invest time into is get sucked into this train of thought that is " this is stupid, I feel stupid, I don't want to do this". I know some people really enjoy getting dressed or doing their makeup but for me It's always just something I feel obligated to do. I feel stupid for dressing up or I feel like.....shame..... when not dressed up.



    EDIT: EXCEPT! when it comes to costumes. I am the master of costumes. I think because there is the element on accuracy. A clear definition of whether or not what you are wearing looks "right". Plus it's super fun escapism. I love costumes...a lot.
