Transplanted Life
Sunday, November 16, 2003
Did a little clothes shopping today; I haven't yet gotten the quarterly stipend for office attire, but I figured I do need that heavier winter coat (the wind here the last couple of days was insane), and there were a few other things - I seem to go through underwear quicker than I ever did before, and I figured it wouldn't hurt to get some sexier underthings.

I'd never paid a whole lot of attention to women's clothes before, but having a belt built into the coat strikes me as odd. I'm not sure whether it's an instrument of mere vanity - a winter coat does tend to obscure your figure - or whether it serves some practical purpose. My best guess is that because of that curvy figure, you need the belt to keep the warm coat pressed up against your body, or otherwise cold air will get in and the insulated coat will actually keep it in. At least, that's my best guess.

I can't really come up with a better explanation for the belts meant to go with my pants - those, really, seem completely ornamental most of the time. Most of my pants either have elastic waistbands or take the curve of my butt into consideration, so there's little chance of them falling down, the avoidance of which I'd always seen as a belt's primary purpose. Of course, there are the low-riding ones, but those still kind of freak me out - my instincts still say I've got a hairy ass that they'll expose.
