Manicured or could you care less what your yard looks like?

What kind of dresser are you - classy, trendy, bold or combination/no one particular style?

Cook in/grill out or go out on a scorching hot day?

It means I have been buying clothes for over forty years, and I don't recall every purchase I've ever made, much less the reasons for them.

What, I should just go out and buy whatever I like and hope I eventually have a place to wear the clothes. 

Not my style.  I don't spend money on things unless I really want them or really need them.  I don't want clothes I might not have an opportunity or need to wear, and I certainly don't need them.

Do you buy clothes that ONLY can be worn to one TYPE of event? I don't know about others but I try and buy clothes that I can wear to many different things. That is why I can see something I truly like and not have to wait that long to wear it.

As it should be! Enjoy! I for one am confident that six minutes after the reception starts, we all will not find you posting away here, like some

Lol.

That makes no sense.  Having more clothes than you need is not the same thing as having an unlimited wardrobe.   And yes, I know that a lot of people enjoy having clothes and shopping.   I don't.  I have more books than I need, and more art than I need, and more flowers than I need.  These are things I enjoy.   I do not really enjoy having a lot of clothes.

Again, what is with this new marriage stuff?   What is your definition of newlywed? I always heard - depending on the source - that it applied to those who had been married anywhere from less than 6 months to up to less than 2 years.

Were you raised to "save" new items of clothes?  Or is this a new trend I never heard of?  And where's my dang etiquette tome, for pete's sake??

I don't get it because unless I buy a formal outfit, my clothes can be worn to many different places. I personally only have 2 dresses sitting in my closet right now with the tags on them. I wanted a few things brand new for vacation. Oh and 2 cover ups (which are actually really cute sundresses so they can be worn either way).

I tend to have casual clothes, professional clothes, and evening/dressy clothes.  I don't really wear my evening/dressy clothes except to evening/dressy events.  Sequins in the college classroom?  Not so much.

I find that very hard to believe since you said you don't like to shop and you don't get very many things unless you need them.

Okay.  Believe it or not, I don't care.  I have many wonderful memories from over the years stored away in my aging memory, but the details for forty-year old purchases are not among them.

If etiquette in your world means no black at weddings you should know by heart why....  Or is it just a social class thing to you?
