Stressed over clothing

Today is not a good day. I forgot to put my clothes in the dryer last night and this morning. By the time I realized it I only had about 20 minutes to finish getting ready. I tried to pick out something but I don't feel comfortable in any of the clothes I had left. I have dozens of shirts and most of them feel too short, too faded, or too tight (particularly around the underarms or neck) and it's driving me nuts. I had to pick something so now I feel completely out of place now. I'm tempted to go shopping during lunch just so I can get out of this shirt. It has three buttons and only the first one is buttoned or it feels like I'm being choked.

I am stressing so much that I'm whining and losing control over my stress that I'm having trouble focusing on work. Not good, not good.

Ick, suckage.

Is it just the clothes being uncomfortable or is this triggering a social anxiety thing?

It is triggering a social anxiety thing. If I don't feel comfortable in whatever I'm wearing then I don't feel comfortable around other people. This is further compounded by not having a sense of fashion and not knowing if what I'm wearing looks even remotely acceptable. If I find something that I think does then I'll start wearing it out, at least once a week and sometimes twice if I have to go out on the weekend and wash clothes during the week.
