Dress Well: Receive Criticism

I receive a lot of criticism for dressing well. Yes, dressing well. I feel this is ridiculous on so many levels.

While I will admit to badgering encouraging others to dress well, I've come to terms with the fact that 90% of the people in my social circles could care less about dressing in something other than hoodies and jeans. I understand that people feel comfortable in that type of clothing. However, I feel just as comfortable in pencil skirts and and a pair of nice heels.

I'm having a hard time understanding why people feel the need to attack me (often publicly) about dressing well. Especially since I spend the majority of my time at work (I work in a church office, BTW), and church. Often, I'm just wearing my work clothes in the evening when I make trips to the supermarket or hanging out with friends. (The more you change, the more clothes you dirty, the more clothes you dirty, the more clothes you have to wash, the more clothes you wash, the more clothes you have to put away. And I despise putting clothes away.)

I could understand receiving criticism on dressing sloppy. Especially if I was attending a funeral, wedding, etc. But no, I am receiving smack for dressing well. For taking the time to make sure I look like a decent human being. It's my right-no, my duty-to put forth an effort and let people know that, "Hey, you're worth the effort of ironing this blazer." Because you all are. :)

Does anyone else receive criticism for doing something awesome, or is it just me?

Stay classy,
