    I think he means, do you put a lot of thought into it or not. Or maybe he wants you to interpret so he can scan your projections. I don't know...

    I don't care at all unless someone I care about complains about my appearance. Then I'll dress as they want because I really don't care to begin with. It always seems like a distraction from what I really care about or want to do.

    I'm not particular about my appearance; I don't take an extraordinary time and concern about what I'm going to wear. I just have three sort of general outfits; casual - jeans and nice shirt; sporty -sweats, and dressy -I wear a dress. Summer time -I usually like to wear sun dresses. I keep it simple.

    i'm pretty particular about my appearance. it takes me a while to get ready for the day. i take forever when i shop to find just what i like and what i think looks good on me. it can ruin my day if i feel like i don't look nice.

    very peculiar.

    i love the ritual of dressing myself or getting to inhabit different versions of self.

    i used to dress myself very elaborately and allow my clothes to sort of make contact with the world for me (i'm very shy) but this has been the case less and less, i think. but dressing is still an incredibly important creative act for me.

    I think I'm more peculiar than particular...I'm willing to wear a lot of things and unwilling to wear a lot of things. I would rather wear a tie-dye shirt,plaid shorts, and a top hat in public than a low-cut shirt, jeans, and makeup.

    Most days I don't think too much about what I look like. When I'm shopping for clothes I tend to be pretty picky about what I buy, but when I get ready in the morning it takes me 15 minutes from getting out of bed to getting out the door. When I try to look well put together it's kind of hit and miss. Mostly I can appreciate when someone looks well dressed and well-groomed, but the process of making that happen for myself seems to flabbergast me.

    i like to look good but i don't put a lot of effort into fashion. like 95% of mY clothes are mY friend's unwanted clothing. i never buy clothes. i hate shopping. i wear simple clothing that can be changed up easily. i put more effort into mY make-up than mY clothing and accessories. i feel naked without anY jewelry on though. and i put zero effort into mY hair. i let it air drY and i don't brush it at all. i'm verY lazY. i like to be clean though. i prefer to shower daily or i feel gross.

    I guess I always want to look decent, but that kind of depends on what's going on. Showers, clean clothes, the occasional shave, nothing crazy. Though sometimes I'm a bum and I just wear a hat and stuff I've worn a day or two ago, just never anywhere where I'll see someone that saw me wear that outfit.

    It takes me forever to get ready. I refuse to go anywhere without showering so then I have to dry my hair which takes ages since there's about ten lbs of it and then I have to do makeup and then I have to try on many different outfits. I hate clothes shopping though, I only do it when absolutely necessary.

    Same. When I think I look good, I feel confident. It doesn't really take me too long though, most of my clothes are easy to match (yay black!) and since I go almost everywhere by train, I do my (rather basic) makeup on-the-go (yes, I'm one of those girls). So it only takes me about 5 minutes from bed to door if I'm in a hurry.

    I'm really obsessed with my nails though. I used to be obsessed with earrings. I love accessories.

    Sometimes I dress like I wouldn't do everything for attention.

    Sometimes I dress real flamboyant/eccentric, wearing a kilt, putting makeup, septum jewelry, mohawk, shock colour hair. One day I'll have a Prince Albert.

    I guess I am. My mother & sister call me high maintenance, but honestly, I think they're too low maintenance.

    My hair always has to be blow-dried with product. At one point I used to straighten my hair, but I don't really do that anymore; It's naturally straight enough to just blow-dry. Occasionally I'll curl it, but it takes too much effort. My shampoo is usually of higher quality. I always like my makeup to look awesome. The makeup I use has to be of high quality. I'm also really into expensive skin care products. sigh. I also wax any body hair every few weeks. I used to go to the tanning salon, but I don't do that anymore; too much of that can really ruin your skin.

    My clothing also has to look good, although I HATE shopping. I like to match, if I'm not matching I feel like a huge loser. I'm pretty simplistic with my jewelry. I'll usually wear one simple piece at a time. I also don't do much with my nails, considering they chip way too easily with my job; so I've pretty much given up in that area.

    I work out for the sake of looking & feeling better. If I don't, I become way too scrawny.

    Allow me to correct myself: I just wear whatever T-shirt, underwear, and pants are at the top of my laundry basket.

    Although I don't think there's any reason for me to wear peculiar underwear, other than a matter of comfort. (Although, I really can't stand most underwear that is not 100% cotton.)

    Somewhat/in the middle. A lot of it is my culture/lifestyle. I grew up in a depressed, blue-collar town and so people here don't really care much about appearances. They're actually mean to people who are pretty, it's funny. (just like hollywood people would make fun of them) Yeah I don't really fit in here. But I don't think I'd fit in a really stuck up rich place either. I feel stuck. =/

    I sometimes wish I had more of a reason to dress nicely and put more effort into my appearance, because I would. There just typically isn't reason for it, so I don't. I'm never grungy or sloppy, but I wear just jeans and a t-shirt 90% of the time. I don't do anything with my hair, and don't wear a lot of makeup. Of course I shower and brush my teeth and all that basic stuff every day, but that hardly counts as effort.
