DW solved the sorting issue of rags vs yardwork. If a rag, the neck or sleeve or both are torn out. Wearing issue solved ;-)

I do buy most of my clothes at Kohl's...half the time I have no idea how much they cost until I get them to the register.
But where do you buy your boots?

I'm still serving my notice period and have been wondering how retirement will affect my attire in future. I think it won't affect much because I've not bought any suits for some time. It's been smart casual for the last 3 years. What I usually wear to work can be mixed and matched with more casual stuff. Those heels will be less worn - great for my feet! I'll be in the market for casual shoes. I think I'll pay for quality because if my feet are not happy, my whole person is not. Any additional stuff to my existing wardrobe would be quality but not quantity and must be functional. Nothing which will only be in fashion for the season.

Like the caption for the photo said, I am seriously envious of this dude. On a scale of 1 to 10, what you think his level of "giving a f*** is?"

On of my favorite brands of shoes is Born . They make great looking flats that last forever . My favorite pair is at least six years old and look like new and are so comfortable .

I think it's a giant hot dog with mustard, in a bun.

That's really strange.

I kinda like the weenie hat. Slap a piece of bacon on it, and I'd be in love!
