I'm going to ask you a basic question because I don't know its answer. I wasn't raised like you, so my life-experience doesn't help me understand this. My question is -- Why do you care about dressing well?
Not everybody does care. There are women who dress slovenly; they don't seem to care. And dressing well, for boys, is a whole separate thing with different concerns and motivations.
Why do you care about dressing well?
There are many reasons I can guess might apply, but I'd rather hear from you. I'm sure answers will differ among you. That's cool; we're individuals and not uniform members of a gender.
Possible answers that occur to me are: (1) You want to look pretty and were taught in childhood that looking pretty is important; (2) You want to impress others; (3) Dressing well makes you feel good about yourself; (4) You want to attract male attention; (5) You enjoy the creativity involved in fashion; (6) You enjoy the process of shopping, planning outfits and trying them out; (7) You are competing with other women.
What is your reason for dressing well?
