Fashion do or don't?

The doorbell rang. I hadn't dressed for the day.

My outfit? A light green fleece nightgown covered with very cute sheep (my husband's favorite. He's even named one of them), my dress skirt from yesterday, which is dark navy blue - first skirt I encountered - and my hair less-than-successfully tucked into a knit hat.

So. Do or don't? :)

Ah, let's make this a poll.

People coming over with no notice don't deserve fashion.

It was a Fedex guy delivering something.

I was half asleep once and answered the door for the UPS guy wearing a fifteen-year-old minnie mouse t-shirt and no pants. I don't think he even noticed.

With that outfit, I'd be more worried about the neighbors.

Fortunately my door's a bit hidden, so no one else stood a chance of seeing me. I kinda opened the door halfway and poked my head around it.

Yes, that's fortunate.

I open right onto the street. And this is Brooklyn - the streets are never empty.

Better a sarong than a barong. (a kind of Philippine short-sword from Law & Order 3-part episode "Judgment in LA")

My own solution? A loose kaftan hung up near the door. Seconds to put on over whatever I am or am not wearing, and it looks deliberate.

See, that makes sense. And I'd add a snood or something next to it, so instant haircover, too.
