When you see women dressed up in sexy mini skirts or short summer dresses at the grocery market or retail stores do you think they are trying too hard? sometimes I feel kinda insecure cause I think it makes me look desperate but at the same time it's hot outside, and why not wear it ? a lot of times i just dress casual to the supermarket. i dont really go clubbing or to bars a lot because i dont have any friends to go with

Are you saying that the "sexy mini skirts" are clubbing attire that you wear to the grocery market or retail stores BECAUSE you don't have the opportunity to wear your clubbing outfits to the clubs?

Some summer dresses are fine for the grocery stores. However, the fact that you describe your mini skirts as "sexy", your feelings as "insecure", and your look as "desperate" . . . well, you know . . . now don'tcha?

Some woman walking with her husband was saying that "all dressed up even to go to grocery store" when I walked by them with my summer dress about a month ago. Uh, it's 7pm. People have other things to do BEFORE heading to the grocery store. Besides other people in my area has given me crap before for not dressing well for an Asian in a middle to upper middle Asian neighborhood so I don't think donning on a $11 but moderately conservative dress is super dressy.

i understand the behavior but not the circumstances.

but just like merchants when u call them on misleading advertising they get angry.
or for that matter calling people on their stuff for any reason.

Yeah... it does look desperate. I was at the store a few days ago and some fat broad had her boobs just totally hanging out... way way too much.... I don't mind, cause I like fat broads with their boobs hanging out... but it did look totally inappropriate..... and desperate too....

I just assume they are on their way to or from something that was more appropriate to "dress sexy" for.

Well, that's if I assume anything at all, actually. Unless someone is really out there in how they choose to present themselves in public I don't think I pay much attention.

The concept of dressing in some way or another to go to the supermarket is weird to me. Am I alone in this? Do people really dress up just to go to the grocery store? If I have to do a grocery store run, or pretty much any sort of shopping or errand, I wear whatever I'm wearing at the moment. Although I do draw the line at sleepwear.

Pay no attention to what other people are wearing, or how they react to what you are wearing. It is no one's business ... as long as the attire does not violate any local laws.

When I see women dressed nicely in the grocery store, I don't assume that they've dressed up just to go to the grocery store - so I can't really "think they're trying too hard". If I thought about it, I'd think they were just dressed for the day and had other things going on besides only going to the grocery store. And to be honest, I'd probably assume they had more going on than they really might just because they look nice and probably be a little intimidated. It seems like you simply feel desperate and like you are trying too hard. If you're trying to possibly meet a guy at the grocery store, I don't think there's anything wrong with that - the grocery store seems like a good place to meet somebody. If you're unsure of whether it's appropriate for you to dress nice and question whether you're worthy of it - well, I think you need to work on your confidence because if you want to dress nice there's nothing wrong with that. However, you should take a hint in what I said about being intimidated - I think sometimes some guys look over and write off girls because we think they're too good for us or have too much going on, or at least I do, so you might not want to "oversell" yourself. All that said, sometimes I wonder if I dress too nicely for my own good, but because it's become normal to me I'm not sure how to dress down.
