I want new clothes and a new body. When I find what I like I wear it to death. I want cute smaller clothes so I can try some new styles.

I like all my clothes. There are some items no long needed since I retired. Lots of dresses and skirts.

I keep a plastic bag in my closet and toss out stuff I do not just love. I have many items I need to ebay after the new year.

Am I satisfied with the clothes I have? Not really. I like the sweat pants I wear all winter and the old sweat shirts and knit turtlenecks that go with them. But I don't like my summer tee shirts. I hate that the sleeves are too short and the neck lines too scooped. All for the sake of showing as much female skin as possible, I guess. Or else to just cut down on the amount of raw material that goes into a tee shirt today. And no, I don't like the jeans or slacks of today. "Average" is too short and "long" is too long (when I can even find "long"). Plus I hate that the waistlines are cut as low as they are. Ditto for panties. Even "briefs" barely cover the belly button--if at all. Some of the panties today that are labeled "briefs" do not come above the belly button. Again, all for the sake of using less raw material. I order panties online and I know of only one brand that is long enough to sit at my natural waistline. At my age--83--comfort (cool in summer, warm in winter, not too fancy and covered well) is #1 for me and it seems like it gets more difficult every year to meet that criteria.

Yes! I really like the clothes I have. Just have too many of them...enjoy consignment and thrift store shopping and it shows. Gotta do more purging.

I'm only looking for one specific item (a fuzzy leopard hat with a brim. I have a clear picture in my mind, but can't find the exact one), so I guess I'm pretty happy with my wardrobe.

But when I find something I like, I'll buy it, and get rid of things I don't wear. I've been living out of suitcases since April, so I don't want a lot of clothes.

While I am satisfied in the clothes I have, and am grateful to not be in want of them, I am more often satisfied without my clothes or when partially clothed.

Thread made me recall the wisdom of Job - "Naked I came from my mothers womb and naked shall I depart"....

I have all the clothing I need but it's serviceable, plain stuff. I'd rather dress a little more feminine, a little boho (think broomstick skirt and cowboy boots) but that doesn't fit into my lifestyle here and I'm not going to waste money buying stuff I'll never wear. I also have a conservative job so boho is out. Also, weather is cold and rainy here for 6 months out of the year which means skirts are out.

Anyway, I never really feel that I look feminine and stylish so my self image tends to suffer. Also, in order to feel and look more stylish, I'd have to buy the most current trends which I hate. Hate skinny pants, tunic tops, fly away sweaters, low cut summer tops. Don't like the current trend of wearing athletic wear every day. Also, most of the stores in my budget don't carry my size. I'm a size 2 but I'm not a petite. Petite pants are too short on me. No, I can't afford to pay for better labels.

Like other posters have said, it's all about being grateful for what we have.

I am satisfied with my spring/summer clothes, but I feel I am lacking in winter. I am going to buy a few more clothes over the next year and then I am going to slow down.

I stocked up in the past three years (especially spring/summer clothes) that I think for 2019 I will probably slow down in buying clothes unless I find something I really like. I want to save a little bit of money in 2019.

Yes and no. I have my old favorites but they are starting to show wear and I cant find anything new that I like. Im tall and curvy so I have a hard time with fit. Also I prefer dark greens and other autumn colors. And I like collars on my shirts.


I did find a pair of green shoes.

High waisted jeans are out there now. High waisted pants—that is pants that sit at the natural waist—are coming back into style after being absent for so long.
