Thoughts for Thursday: Looking Good
After reading Jessica's post about the woman who loves the dollar store because she doesn't have to dress up like she goes when she goes to Walmart. Got me thinking back to an episode of Oprah when she had Trinny and Susannah on from What Not to Wear on BBCAmerica. They said that women in the U.S. tend to dress much more casual than the rest of the world. Meaning, women in other countries don't run around in sweats unless they are actually running. From what I have seen it is true. In France and London, everyone looks so put together, but can be wearing jeans. After seeing the show, I actually made a conscious effort to try and look good when I left the house to be seen in public. I do admit on occasion you will find me in a pair of fleece pants, but usually because I wasn't planning to leave the house. I don't get dressed to the nines, but I will wear jeans/pants and a at least a nicer t-shirt. I very rarely even wear a sweatshirt anymore. I will shower, do my hair and put make up on. I do that even if I'm not leaving the house. I just feel better knowing I look at the very least decent, and like an actual woman. What's your take on Looking Good? Do you try, or say the heck with it, I'm a _____ gal?
