Actually, I have three types of Wal-Mart outfits:

1) Office casual, for when I stop in after work;
2) Weekend clothing, usually a plain T-shirt and capris;
3) Gardening clothing -- a crummy old T-shirt and cotton knit capris -- for when I'm in the middle of a gardening project, realize I need something ASAP, and run to Wal-Mart in whatever I've got on to get it. No sense putting on clean clothes when I'm a mess, and why get cleaned up just to get dirty again. Gardening people understand.

Oh, make that four: workout duds, when I stop in after the gym. Sweaty CoolMax. Bwah.

Unless, I'm going through a DRIVE-THRU, I have to throw on something casual, but CUTE...and I always have to have my lips glossed and have earrings on.

This is too funny. Do you really care what people wear to Wal-Mart? When I go out I wear what I always wear clean jeans, a clean shirt, and sneakers. That is an upgrade from my work clothes which I wear until they are so holey and stained it's ridiculous. Hey I never know if I'm going to be painting or working in the dirt.

I will shop anywhere I can get a bargain. I am definitely not a store snob. But I don't like Target because they are more expensive than Wal-Mart or the Dollar store and they are always empty.

I don't care what people wear as long as they have decent/good personal hygiene. If someone smells I can't get away quick enough.


I am more surprised at how casual people dress when they go out to dinner.
Some look like total slobs. Maybe they do that so that don't have to leave a good tip!!!

If a person can't see me past what I'm wearing, then it isn't my problem, is it?

I would never step foot into a Walmart, McDonald's or Piggly Wiggly.

My assumption is that if you are shopping there, you don't care so much what you are putting into your body (Chinese goods, low quality foods, fried fast food, etc) why do you care so much what you are putting on it?

The very same goods, the very same foods, that are sold at WalMart, are sold at Target, Sears, Penneys, Loews, Home Depot, Kohls, and your local grocery store.
