People like...my grandmothers. Both of them. I cannot say that I ever saw either one of them in "trousers" or pants of any kind.

I think part of the reason I always put on "real clothes" before going out in public, is due to their influence. I live with their china and linen and silver and other beautiful things daily in my home. I respect and cherish their legacy.

Neither one of my grandmothers would have ever dared to run to the grocery store with out proper "street clothes" , a quick combing of the hair, and a dab of lipstick.


I suppose this makes me terribly old-fashioned.....

No it doesn't! I grew up with the same type of women
I'm pretty much the same way....I like looking good when I go out....but I'm not going to look down on others who would rather wear their sweats or jammie bottoms....I'm not going to fool myself into thinking my opinion matters that much!

I occasionally see pajamas... I think if people think they're comfortable, & they're neat & clean, there's nothing wrong with it...
same for sweatsuits, but I haven't seen anyone wearing them lately

Oh, wow, looks like I've been so busy slinging mud and throwing punches over on the "rude picky eaters" thread that I've been missing out on the fun over here. Mind if I join in?

Good!

IMHO, pajama bottoms in public look childish and horrid! I was just chatting with a friend who lived in France for a spell. He said that the difference between us and the French is that the French take pride in how they look. They get up in the morning and put on a nice outfit. A French woman would NEVER go out of the house in pajama bottoms or sweatpants. Just like she would never let herself get fat.

I'm not saying we have to be like the French, but we don't have to continue to dress ever more slovenly either. What's happened to our sense of pride?

Personally, I think it's because Americans are so overweight that they prefer wearing sweatpants and pajama bottoms to anything that actually looks nice. Nobody dare looks in the mirror any more!

Yeah, don't start crying!

You better believe men like to see a woman who dresses nice. They actually like it when a lady puts on a little lipstick and paints her toenails.

This may be the reason I can no longer find "town dresses". Hmmmm.

Personally, I like to look a bit smarter & dressed for the day, but I don't care what anyone else wears as long as the naughty bits are covered.

It really does boil down to pride and respect, respect for others as much as for yourself. This goes hand in hand with those people who wear jeans to weddings and funerals.

Honestly, I group those who dress overly provocatively together with those who are slovenly. So, as an example, the 20-year-old dressed in Daisy Dukes, high heels and an overly revealing top (my MIL calls them hoochie mamas) shows the same lack of respect as a woman in the grocery store wearing pajamas and slippers.
