Yep... and it only took a trip to the Dallas area to settle it. Although I guess I've know that all along... I was never really comfortable with trying to dress up for occasions or events over the years. Always felt like a kid playing dress up.
I went into a yarn shop the other day and felt totally out of place... totally... in a yarn shop! It was a 'high end' yarn and womens clothing shop. Beautiful, wonderful, luscious yarns and nary a price to be seen. The clothing were all lovely too... you know - the kind for those tall slender ladies, trim and neat! Me - I'm not tall... and I've got lots of hindsight... so not the clothes I'd be wearing - especially since I turned one tag for a simple top and it was $90ish dollars. I was just looking at yarns and yet I felt sooo out of place. LOL
I found myself wishing I'd put on some makeup - which I don't much feel compelled to wear at home very often anymore. And the flannel shirt I pulled on over my shirt because it was cool out - well it just didn't work as an alternative to a light jacket. Then there were those sneaks... which probably would benefit from a roll around in the washer. I was clean - I just wasn't spiffy enough to feel comfortable there. And I wasn't asking what the yarn cost... because you know - if you have to ask - you probably can't afford it.
Now I have been to 2 other shops - one that same day that I felt perfectly fine in... and the yarn was priced too! LOL
I'm Howdy... the Country Bumpkin... and I'm OK with that! LOL
