Then please go back into your dresser or closet and find something that doesn't make you look like that. I was at Sam's Club this morning, buying a meal for a co-worker's family who's Mom just passed away. I was in line, and all of a sudden all I could see was pink velour. I tried to take a pics for y'all to see but my damn phone malfunctioned and I didn't get it. You're lucky, cause y'all would need brain bleach to get that image out of your head, just like I do. Girls, this poor lady(lady?) was wearing a pink velour track suit.. no wait, HOT PINK. It was too small, the jacket was crop top, and she had on a LOW cut black tank top..low as in; the girls are falling out. The tank top must have been extra long cause she had it pulled way down over her belly flap that extended over the top of her hot pink pants (thank God, at least it wasn't bare skin). She had on thong underwear, I could tell because her pink pants were so tight you could see the lines. Now this is at 10:00 am! She also had a little girl w/ her must have been about 2ish (daughter? who knows). She was not HUGELY overweight, but obviously way past the recommended daily allowance for the outfit she had on. Now the real kicker, the part of the outfit that just put it right over the top, the complete height of white trash fashion....The back of the 'jacket' had "Juicy Couture" written in multi-colored sequins! Her hair do was a whole other story. Now I want to ask you, who would look at their self in the mirror wearing that, and go, "DAMN girl! You look GOOOD! Let's take our bad self to Sam's and get 100 pounds of cat food!" (cause that's what she was buying).
Let me be clear. I am not perfect, I do not have a perfect body, I do not have height of fashion expensive clothes, I do not claim to be a fashion expert. I do not give a shit what people think of me most the time.. I do however have enough sense not to wear clothes that make me look like this:
|Honestly w/ the right fitting jeans, this girl has a nice body.|
I try not to wear anything that's tight enough to make me look like that. First of all because it's not comfortable, second of all because I don't want pics like this of me to end up on the internet. I'm not a perfect weight, I'm a little more fluffy than I need to be. I've had four kids, I do not have washboard abs, in fact I'm pretty sure my abs don't even know they exist anymore. Do I have a muffin top? Yes, if I wear tight jeans I absolutely do. That doesn't mean I'm going to walk around in public dress like either of these pics or worse. I would NEVER EVER wear a pink velour track suit, at least not at my current weight. Those things are made for girls who have amazing bodies, not for those of us w/ mediocre bodies.
What I really want to know is who the hell tells these girls they look good? Somewhere down the road they must've said to their 'friend' "How do I look?" and if they have a 'friend' that told them they look good in that, that is not their friend. Wouldn't your mother say something? My mother would, in a heartbeat! Everyone has a best friend don't they? A friend that would tell you that that outfit looks like shit? I do. In fact I have several friends that I can just about guarantee, would tell me the truth. I see this all the time, adults, high school girls, junior high girls, hell even elementary school girls, does no one know how to tell their daughter's the truth? I tell my daughter if something doesn't look good, and if it's something she wants at a store I will not buy it.
