did you have to point it out?



i'll be the first to admit that my work wardrobe is not exciting. since i gained back the weight i lost i wear pretty much 3 skirts and 3 pair of pants (but mainly the skirts) on a rotating basis. i have a few shirts and cardigans that i also rotate. they aren't flashy - they're earth toney. for the most part i could care less - my desk is so high that people walking in can only see my head anyhow. i have more clothes but i just can't fit into them right now and i don't want to spend money that i don't even have on clothes that i don't want fitting me right now....

that said....

i did not need to hear a (male) co-worker say 'YAY! New shirt!' to me today when i walked by. for one - i've worn the shirt i wore today plenty of times. for two - you wear fucking scrubs and [name of employment] t-shirts every day - like you're one to comment on wardrobe ya doorknob!

i know it shouldn't but it kind of hurt my feelings. i know i don't have big variety but i think i look nice. and who cares if i don't have a big selection? as long as they are clean - i mean i work on a floor were everyone else is in scrubs - pish.

he should have known better.......

I completely understand. I work 2 days a week at an elementary school and the kids compliment me when they see me in different clothes. I asked them if they pay attention to what I wear, and they said that they do, and that I only have a couple of pairs of pants. I was oddly offended.

I also got asked recently if I was a boy or a girl. Ummmm.... I get that you are seven, and I do have a few chin hairs, but how did my boobs not tip you off? I asked him what he was, and then what he thought I was, and I laughed that whatever he thought I was, that must be what I was. Funny, though oddly offending. I started wearing pink more.

I feel your pain. Since I switched to maternity clothes, I have three pairs of pants I rotate and about 8 shirts.
It's frustrating, but why spend the money on a complete new wardrobe?!
