Dressing Impaired

Last December, I was training a class full of managers. We were in a small conference room, very relaxed atmosphere. I have a class full of females...none. I was wearing my typical black pants and a red, black, tan, and white striped sweater.

I'm in front of the class, walking around the table, training who knows what, and I pause, and peripherally see my seem on my shoulder sticking out.

Oh no, I'm seeing stuff. So I attempt to keep talking while trying to figure out how I was dressed and if anyone noticed. I had them work on something silently, grabbed my half-full water bottle and made an excuse to go get more water. I went to the restroom, looked in the mirror, and had put my sweater on inside out! I don't know if they noticed, I hope they didn't notice. But for all I know, it's a joke going around amongst the managers.

Another winter morning, I was getting ready for work. I got up, brushed my teeth, did my hair, put on make up. I get the shirt I'm going to wear for the day, grab my purse, slip on my huge shoes (I like to look tall). I walk outside to my truck and feel this chill across my legs. Yes, I forgot to put on pants!! I was still wearing my PJ shorts that should not be seen in public!

Now, let's fast forward to today. Everyday when I go to Curves, I change in their dressing room into my gym clothes. My gym clothes consists of black meshy capris pants with 2 white stripes down each side, some sort of USMC or Mizzou t-shirt, and my sneakers. I changed like I always do and get to working out. I'm on my 2nd rotation and am on the machine that you have to stick your legs into these things and spread your legs and then bring them back in (working your thighs, abs and butt) - and I see the seem of my pants going down the inside of my legs. I look at the side of my legs, and I'm missing my 2 white strips and it's replace with another seem. I get up, feel my lower back, and there are my tags sticking out! I continue to work out, making shirt my t-shirt covers as much as it can. I finish my 2nd rotation and hope no one has noticed so I can push myself to do a 3rd.

When I go to the tanning room, I am sure to put my pants on CORRECTLY when I'm done.

I'm 23 years old, almost 24, and I need help dressing myself! Very sad!
