C) They were in Austria together. 5) They talk about buying ______ .
A) computer goods B) clothes C) furniture Transcript Silvia: So Diego, you've asked me about shopping, but what about you?
Diego: I think that now I have to pay for everything myself I'm a much more conservative shopper so I only buy strictly what I need.
Silvia: And that's all.
Diego: I think so, yes.
Silvia: But do you have anything that you can't resist not buying?
Diego: Well, I try to save most of my money because I like to travel. Instead of going shopping, I try to save as much as I can, and then when I'm traveling, I can do whatever I want and worry less about money, so that's where ... I mean if I have to say like what is the thing I shop the most, I would say it's trips. Like I spend most of my disposable income in travels.
Silvia: That's weird because you know I had a boyfriend. He loved to shop. He would shop more than I, I think.
Silvia: Really good at shopping. We would go to a store, and I really take my time and he will just point, like just this, this, this, this. Try it on. And they will fit it and they were nice. Ok. Let's go. He was an experienced at shopping. What do you think about that?
Diego: Well, I think it's a very bad combination because if you're a big shopper and he's a big shopper, you're a bigger shopper together.
Silvia: I know. Actually, everyone used to bother us. We were studying in Austria for two months and every time we went out just to the store to get, I don't know, milk or whatever, we will end up
29coming back with bags of stuff. We would just go out for walking around, and every time we ended up with some bag from shopping.
Diego: Yeah, and you know, shopping is like a really bad cycle because once you buy something you have to buy another thing, and then another thing, and another thing. Like if you buy a new computer, you need a new mouse, and then you need a new webcam, and the big speakers and so on I think with girls it's the same thing.
Silvia: But with clothes.
Diego: Yes, but with clothes.
Silvia: We need the bag and the shoes and the belt.
Diego: And one thing gives you another excuse to buy another thing.
Silvia: Yeah, that happens to me often actually.
Diego: OK, so maybe you should stop using your credit cards.
Silvia: Yeah, maybe.

You Are What You Wear
Would you ever wear shorts and a T-shirt to a wedding? Would you think about wearing a bikini to work? Of course you wouldn’t, unless you are a little crazy. If you don’t want to look strange, it is important to wear the right clothes for the right occasion. There are basically four different kinds of clothes that you can wear: formal, professional, casual, and stylish.
When it comes to wearing formal clothes, for example, to a wedding or to a performance like the opera or ballet, women should wear a nice dress and some jewelry. For men, it should be a dark suit with a tie. If the occasion is a funeral, people usually wear black. For a very formal occasion women should wear an evening gown and men a tuxedo. A very formal event would be something like a charity ball or a fancy party for a high government official.
A professional outfit for a woman might be a skirt and a nice blouse. For a man, it would be either a suit and tie or pants with a jacket and tie. Professional clothes shouldn’t be very colorful or have any details that could make you look like you are not being serious. You should wear clothes like these to work, to meetings and interviews, or to business lunches and dinners.
Casual clothes are more fun to wear. For casual occasions both men and women can wear jeans, sweaters, or anything they feel comfortable in. Casual clothes might also express something about your personality or your interests. For example, they might have on them the logo of your favorite sports team or the name of a city that you have traveled to. These clothes can be worn in any places where it is all right to just be comfortable. In addition, some businesses now have something called ‘casual Friday’ or ‘dress down Friday’: one day each week on which employees can wear causal clothes to work.
Stylish clothes are clothes that are fashionable and that make you look great. Styles change every year, so it can be hard for both men and women to know what to wear to look stylish. The best idea is to take a look at some fashion magazines or to see what celebrities are wearing on TV. Or, be brave and create your own style! The best places to wear stylish clothes include restaurants, nightclubs, and parties.
It isn’t easy to dress well. For some people, it can even be stressful. Why can it be so stressful? Well, rightly or wrongly, many people believe the saying that you are what you wear.
