There was definitly a certain irony about reading that blog post yesterday, and my interest to bring it here. When I think of these non-geology types that dress this way I am forced to think of places like Boulder and Bozeman, for example.
No, they wear these clothes not to be ready at a moment s notice to head out to the real country, they wear these clothes as a form of conspicuous consumption. They are saying: see, I don t need to dress in old haut bourgeois weekend casual clothes, because I go out to Aspen (or Park City, or some other far off trendy place) and this is what I would be wearing if I were there. (Never mind that I only go once a season, or once every two years, I want you to think that it was just some huge deal at work that has kept me in NYC, so I am wearing my ski jacket to dinner on the Upper West Side, or I have on my fleece vest, even though I have just been to an indoor gym).
Also, when driving, white people love putting their turn signal on about a half mile before the turn.
Luckily, we keep getting the exemptions, like noting that Europeans actually ARE into soccer. Well, we call it football. Also there should be an exemption about the sportswear. Europeans dress up after work, if they are going somewhere, Americans dress down. This means you are likely to meet a European person on the way to work in his fleece jacket, only to meet him out on town in an elegant coat and some snappy shoes after work. There should be warning for American men dating European women: do not get into your casual wear if you have invited her out to dinner! She ll come dressed to kill and if you re not dressed for it, she ll just leave your carcass in the gutter.

I didn t even know Northface EXISTED until I went to a certain baby ivy school . It still amazes me as to why its so popular. White people LOVE being unique, but they all end up being the same
There are those who combine as well. I see the north face fleece vest over a lot of business casual here in SF and the silicon valley. I think they give you one when you move to the peninsula.
Keeping only the clothes that give me a spark of joy has allowed me to relinquish items that I've been keeping out of one kind of guilt or another —that I bought something and never really wore it, because someone else gave it to me, or because it's wasteful to get rid of something that's perfectly 'good.'

In August 2009, MaryMargret Williams saw a photo of Brooke on the cover of People magazine, just below the headline Heartbreaking mystery: The 16-year-old baby . She thought Brooke sounded a lot like Gabby, so contacted Walker.
They're attracting all the investor interest because each company is trying to fill a void left by the big online retail incumbents. Though Amazon is deeply entrenched in almost every product category in e-commerce, and eBay rules resale, many consider fashion their most vulnerable segment, whether new or used. Amazon and eBay thrive as near-boundless vending machines, where customers search for anything and everything. Fashion is built on meticulous curation.
I agree with Tina. I would think that line drying vs. electric drying would not be enough to cause World War III on Jillee s very eye opening post. It s true that it saves a lot of money when you line dry clothing, but it is not always possible. Please think about things before you type/say them.

A big advantage of making your own clothes is that you can choose from some amazing (and novelty) fabrics - including ones which you can use to pay homage to your favourite movie/tv program/actor etc - in fact you'll find kid's duvet covers are a great source of weird and wonderful fabrics!
You'll never have to hem and haw about whether something will be useful later, whether you should keep it because it's a 'good shirt' or was expensive or any of that! Note that 'sparking joy' applies perfectly well to items that aren't exactly thrilling but that serve us well. For instance, the cotton camisole that doesn't rise up and is just the right length — that sure sparks joy for me! Socks without holes spark a lot more joy than socks with holes. You get the picture.b16d0d36c49845317c6af84cfc7bd617
