Among the many things I have been called in my life, being a clothes hound is not one of them. It is not that I don’t have too many clothes (I do), but that I really do not care much about what I am wearing. It has never made much sense to me. While I know there are many people who put lots of time and effort into the clothes they wear, it has just never made much sense to me. I really see clothes as a necessity, but do not really want to sped much time or money on them.
While I know that I am not alone among those who feel this way, I am also well aware of just how many pay great attention and money to their clothing. Even a casual examination of the Sunday newspaper shows numerous ads from companies who want to sell people clothing. There are so many types of stores, clothing and possibilities it is hard to imagine them all. There are those clothes sold second hand, and those that are sold in expensive luxury shops.
I am not sure why I do not care much about the clothes I wear. (Maybe that is why I became a Dominican. Much easier to wear the habit than worry about this or that style.) I like not having to worry about what I am going to put on in the morning.
