I have to wear a uniform. I love my polyester culottes. In fact, I love them so much I still have them on and I got home over 3 hours ago.

nopes! I work in a liberry. Most other people I work with dress vaguely smart, but I'm a bit rubbish and wear baggy jeans and a t-shirt and just generally look a bit unprofessional! Last time I was in I was wearing my ripped jeans and a Herbivore t-shirt. It's good because the cafe staff always assume I'm a student and charge me discounted prices for coffee.

For like the first time ever, no. So happy bout it! Though sometimes I miss the comfort of conformity.

But mostly I'm stoked to be in my own cute clothes.

No, I haven't in a long time, but I kind of miss not having to decide what to wear.

My boss is getting me a Tshirt, but I don't have to wear it I think,

I usually dress business casual with a few punkytype accents.

No. I'm lucky to work in a place where I can wear whatever I want.

Nope, but I actually used to enjoy it. I never had to worry about what I had to wear.

Not now because I'm working at the front desk of a gym but over the summer I was a server at a resort and I had the worst uniform. It was an outdoor restaurant at a pool so we had to wear an orange sleeveless polo with a v-neck and light blue bermuda board shorts.

I have a tshirt that I wear occasionally, but the dress code is pretty lenient. As long as I don't expose too much and I don't look like I just fell out of a tree, I'm good.

It depends on which job I'm working. I work at a retail store during school breaks when I'm staying with my parents and there I have a "uniform" that's really just more of a strict dress code. At my lab job I wear pretty much whatever as long as it fits with safety regulations and stuff. Sometimes I wear a lab coat I guess, but that's not really a uniform. I want to be a scientist so I'm hoping this is how things tend to go, though I'll probably have to be more professional at some point I'm into more ecological science stuff so sometimes I'm super grubby and sometimes I look all squeaky clean and traditionally sciencey. I like that.

No, I work at home... I'm practically in my PJs all day, unless I have to go out to run errands. But even then, I'm probably in sweats.

Nope. I wear the most ridiculous outfits at work, but not because I have to.

Yes. I work at a coffee shop where I can wear black, black and khaki, white and khaki, etc. Shirts have to have collars or turtlenecks. Not particularly flexible. I always change out of my clothes right away, because I don't enjoy smelling like stale coffee.

I've had to in the past. Sometimes I wish I still did, because I stumble into work in some janky stuff sometimes.

Right now, no- whatever workout clothing I want to wear. However, once I get my other job (cross fingers I get a job) I'll have to wear professional clothing... I think I'd rather wear a uniform and not have to think about what to wear on a daily basis. But wait- I also like to dress up in pretty clothes, too, so I don't know. I see positives for both.

Yes, but I rebel against it. We have to wear jeans and our uniform tee-shirt. If I wear my tee-shirt, I wear it with one of my "sexy school girl" skirts and flashy knee socks. If I wear the jeans, I "forget" to wear my shirt, or wear it under a colorful hoodie.

Yes, I have to wear a white collared shirt and black pants. And a grocery apron.

No, I don't think I've worn one since high school (pink oxford shirt, green tropical print tie and green hat with pink emboridered pineapple... hawt.) Now I get away with way underdressing for my office. I keep waiting for my boss to say something about it, but it's been like 3 years and I think he's just happy that I dress nicer when I know his boss will be around.

I worked at Disneyland and wore every costume (uniform), in every land, for merchandising (selling shiitake in stores). Best: New Orleans/Pieces of Eight (Victorian/pirate.) Worst: Toon Town (red overalls that creeped so far up my asparagus I could taste it.)

Oh, Disney costumes are just hideous! I worked at Magic Kingdom in Orlando (in the restaurant in the castle) and had to wear a long skirt that looked like curtains, a puffy white shirt, and a blue vest. It was so bad. I did like that Disney did my laundry for me, though. Costuming at Disney is very efficient, if nothing else.

I TA. This year, I was told at the beginning of the semester that I need to present myself as an authority figure. I assumed this meant that what I was wearing on the day I met with the dean was all wrong (it was mid-July, 90+ degrees out, and I was wearing a cargo skirt and a tank top). So now, depending on the weather and my mood, I either dress like a semi-hip librarian or Mr. Rogers. Today was a Mr. Rogers day.

It is now 6 hours later and I am still wearing my culottes. The truth is I am so lazy that I do not want to change. But, it they are very comfortable and sexy!
