Five-inch heels. They are just plain silly, no exceptions. I see women trying to maintain their balance and their very walk is tentative and far from sexy or confident. They wobble and look like they're trying too hard.

White leggings on ANYONE. Leggings on heavy people - as slacks.

I also to not want to see the ass of anyone. An inch longer will not kill you.

On older women (i.e. 45 plus) You really do not need to wear a "hair do" - i.e. a style that does not blow in the wind, is cut and permed and freeze sprayed until you have it "done" again.

That is SO AGING!

People who STILL wear 1980s clothes. The BIG HAIR. The high wasted jeans that are a light wash. NO.

Floral tops with pastel poly slacks and black low healed pumps. NO!

You are 51, not 97! Why?

OK, I'll calm down.

Turtlenecks - make everyone have a fat, squashed face.
Thongs - yuck, up your butt crack -makes me want to throw up
Leggings as pants so I can see your camel toe - barf!
High heels and shorts - hooker
Too much crap and color on your nails - trailer park

I was going to mention this exact thing. So ugly. Blue zombie nails are hardly flattering. Before you follow any "fad", ask yourself, is this actually ATTRACTIVE?

Maybe you are unaware but "attractive" is not a universal concept. Additionally, perhaps they are not attempting to attract you anyway. Finally, many people do not select their clothing/makeup/nail polish based on anything other than what they like or find "fun".

Personally I never do anything beyond shape and buff my own nails unless I am going to a wedding but I do not fine blue nails, or really any color, unattractive. At least they took the time to take care of their nails.

Not my style but truly not "zombie" nails either. I think the ones complaining are maybe just afraid of anything not traditional.

I think blue nail polish is for the young - on an older person it looks like pulmonary arrest

And is that picture of the women from my big fat gypsy wedding? Slinky dresses with pot bellies

I actually thought that show was an interesting take on how cultures view different things as attractive. If I remember correctly, all of those women are married and were virgins when they got married. So, those women were obviously viewed as attractive and desirable in that culture.

Personally, I thought it was great that they didn't give a crap what other people thought of them and they dressed and acted the way they wanted. The women had a very odd confidence where in western culture it's just constant complaining and judging.

Wow, seem to have stuck a nerve here.

I think pretty much this entire thread is based on personal opinion anyway, is it not?

You don't find blue nails garish, unnattractive and a Fashion Don't - I do.

As far as tradiiton goes, people did not used to get tattoos on their faces, People did not used to think it was acceptable to wear their pajamas to the store. Women over 50 did not try to wear the same styles their teenage daughters wear. People did not think cut-off shorts and flip-flops were acceptable attire for job interviews.

Sometimes, tradition is good.

And again, clearly YOU are not the person the blue nailed people give a hoot about attracting.

Everyone has an opinion, but most people don't state their's as if it were fact.
