I want sleeves.
I do not want sleeves that fit tight (think knit or polyester.)
I hate sleeveless shirts and blouses and dresses, and I hate cap sleeves.

Women with thighs like mine have no business wearing pants tucked into boots.
I hate knit.
I hate polyester.
I love turtlenecks.
I love linen, drawstring, wide-leg pants.
I love black.
I am usually uncomfortable wearing lots of color or
Now, jewelry? I could shop and buy that stuff at any hour of any day. I love me some shiny, sparkly, dangly, obnoxiously big bling. But I can't leave home without clothes. :o/
