Isn't life grand, that we can all choose what WE want to wear? Isn't it great that all of us have different opinions on clothing? Imagine if we all wore uniforms, or the same outfit YOU decided looked good on YOU!

Your neighbor sounds like a sweet girl, just trying to make a good life for herself. Would you rather have a "stylish" dresser that's blasts music till 4am, or is selling drugs? I agree you should find some volunteer work. If it wouldn't insult the girl, I'd say donate some of your designer clothing to her.

She may be from a different culture. We get visitors from Japan who wear prints with plaids in colors that don't match and at first I thought maybe they weren't able to bring much in their luggage and then when I mentioned it to someone they said that was an actual style in Japan. Once you get used to it, it is sort of interesting at least. If you throw out all preconceived notions about what good style should be, does what she look like have any redeeming values? Bright cheerful colors, maybe? Hopefully it's at least comfortable if it's not stylish.

Haven't read anything but the original post but my first take was:

OP is a woman and the person with the bad clothes is younger and prettier.

Just think how good you look compared to your super unstylish neighbor! I used to have horrible fat unstylish customers at the pharmacy and I thought the same thing and then I realized just how good I looked compared to them

Other days she wears this huge mid calf length solid yellow skirt and she's got another one that's baby crap beige. She always pairs this stuff with shirts that don't match and flat shoes.

My window faces her apartment walkway so I never get close enough to her to say anything (there is a street in between) -- but I wish someone would make her stop dressing so badly. It's just awful. She's like a walking "Don't" fashion page.
It is NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS how other people dress, sheesh, get a life and quit wasting bandwidth

Ha! There's a six lane street between us so I haven't a clue what her face looks like. It's her clothes that just scream at me! (Thankfully, I don't see her every day.)

Oh, but that's another thing. Those patterns she wears aren't subtle. You can see them from 50+ yards away.

How shallow. I'd rather see horrible clothing than deal with an immature, judgmental personality any day!
