I'd let you come to my wedding dressed in bike shorts...

Not sure I'd invite you though, you seem a little bit high strung

Same goes for you. My bride wouldn't be offended.

I'd ask you to please not kick out my invited guests. You can choose who attends your somber occasion, but don't presume to speak for mine

Does your self-righteousness only extend to yourself and your shabby clothes? Apparently.

Fat is the new normal. I am starting to see commercials with morbidly obese people advertisting products, women are calling fat rolls "curves," there is a new diet out or "new" research from scientists out on a daily basis about how to lose weight, on and on and on. I am sick of it!

I would give anything for us to go back as recently as the early 1990s when most people weren't obese. When I was in high school fat was looked down upon. Now the bigger you are, the cooler you are. The most popular kids are obese, the prom queen and king are obese, the head cheerleader and the football captain are obese. It has got to stop.
Awfully judgy for someone who "doesn't judge others based off of what they have on." Other people's opinions of your clothes is no different from your opinion of fat people. You sneer at others--they sneer at you.

BINGO!!!!

Hm, according to miss torn pj wearing almighty we are all living beyond our means and drowning in debt if we dress nice and dress up for the occassion. Nah...... that would not be judgemental for her to assume that now would it

Oh, and for torn pj wearer........... I actually own a business and if you came in dressed like you state you would not even get past the first person to be interviewed. Sorry, our employees are required to dress in a much more presentable and professional manner. Even our drivers that drive trucks and deliver products have to be dressed better than how she does. We have heard what the customers say and several have complained about our competitiers employees that are sloppy. I believe it does effect how one goes about their job. I'm also not going to be dressed so tacky that I can not go out and make sales calls to perspective customers or current customers. I can get a lot further in gaining new business if I am dressed for the occassion.

Hmm, wonder if she is married?
And no, I would not be on that site....... EVER!
First you would have to actually find me in a Walmart. Hate the store and their business practices and refuse to patronize them. Which is a whole nother story.

It shouldn't. IMO, it's not about what one is wearing, but one's attitude. Seriously, bike shorts? I wouldn't care what someone wore to a wedding, but it is important to respect other's wishes, especially when a guest at a milestone event in someone's life. Don't you think deliberately wearing something that was intended for a sport event is an affront?

I couldn't care if someone dresses in inexpensive clothing. I shop at consignment shops and thrift stores, too. It's kind of a treasure hunt. But my clothes are always clean and unwrinkled. If I were going to a wedding, I would have the courtesy to ask what would be appropriate clothing. It's is simply a matter of respsect.

Because you clearly would be out of place. A wedding is all about the bride and groom being the center of attention. Wearing bike shorts would certainly draw attention. It's not your day or your show (in the general sense). At minimum, unless you've got a body like Lance Armstrong or an Olympic athlete, you just are not going to look good.

We are speaking in generalities here. Try not to internalize hypothetical responses to a hypothetical situation. It makes you look high-strung ~

There is a difference between the clothes you have on and your lack of portion control. It really isn't rocket science.

I have fat friends. Do I hate the fact that they don't care about enough about themselves to diet and exercise? Yes. Am I nasty and judgmental like some have been in this thread? No.

A mother and a business owner who starts off a post with the word "gross" when someone says they shop at a thrift store makes you sound like an ignorant snob.

Why would you ever assume that I would come on for an interview to your "business?" I have better things to do with my life than to interview with some stuck up hot mess.

I am in a long term relationship. Unlike you I don't view my worth through my clothes, my job, and my relationship status. What a joke.

You're assuming that how YOU would dress to a wedding is the rule. It isn't. Many weddings I go to are not large affairs and do not require people to wear uncomfortable clothes. I don't know where some posters on here got this notion that the way you show respect at a wedding is to wear ridiculous and unnecessary garb.
