Gross.

I do think that some people go overboard when trying to show off their goods.

I have seen this trend. It looks so gross. It is like they take pride in looking like they had just woke up! And the crazy thing is, when I dress normally (jeans, blouse, boots) these same people ask me, "Why Marissy? What are you getting so dressed up for?" as if I am in business casual.

Maybe I was born waaay too late (I'm in my 30s) because I really love the idea of "dressing".

I love looking at old photos of my grandparents (no longer with us) and they are dressed to the nines. The men wore hats, suits and nice shoes just to sit on the porch and socialize. The women wore nice dresses, stockings, gloves, heels and hats just to go shopping or to the grocery store. Everyone took such great pride in their appearance.

I'm wearing 2 week old pajamas as we speak (I put it on as soon as I get home). Still smells like fresh laundry detergent.

I used to wear Pjs to school because I was lazy and it was comfortable. Sometimes I wouldn't do my laundry so I would just wear them. Now? I don't do it anymore. It's just not my thing. I just thought Pjs was suppose to be a private/home thing, not a public thing but I guess...People are going to judge you no matter what you have on. IMHO, I don't find PJs in public to be appealing.

Calipoppy, we might have been seperated at birth. I love the way people looked up to the mid-60's, then it all started to go to ****. Although--I am a child of the 80's, and love looking back at the "trends" but I think that is more a longing for my youth rather than those trends specifically.

Still, I love the look of beautifully taylored suits, with stockings (not pantyhose..certainly no bare legs which I think just looks so unfinished...), elegant shoes with heels that aren't too high, too short, too thin, or too chunky--juuust right. Plus gloves, and hat and topped off with a fabulously coiffed hairdo and simple but flawless makeup. Just pure style.
And the men in their suits, polished shoes and hats, tidy haircuts and clean shaven.....so dapper. **swoon**

This is from another thread, but it works just as well here

You can make up all sorts of standards all day long. But in the end, people will likely only agree with the standards that they personally value. It becomes a meaningless act. Especially when it relates to such a trivial thing, like having neat hair.

As somebody who has stared death in the face at age 23, and works with life/death situations in my daily job, neat hair is on the bottom of my list of priorities. And second to last on my list of things to judge others by.

The new style of looking like crap? Sorry, this just means you are old.

People have been dressing like crap since the 70's hippie movement. The 90's we say grunge music become mainstream. Having longer unkempt hair became cool.

Every once in a while, I'll dress like crap because I don't care. If you want people to constantly dress well, you would've loved the 50's. People wore suits for plane trips and going to watch a movie. People also loved drinking and driving as well. Maybe because they spent so much extra time getting ready, they were forced to multitask.

I wonder why people that care nothing about how they dress would even be on this forum??
