    This thread was inspired by a need for bug spray. I had to leave my home and enter the world today.


    #1 - Just because they make it in your size doesn't mean YOU were meant to wear it.
    EXAMPLE - very old woman in mini-shorts and a halter top

    #2 - Check to see what you look like from the back before leaving the house.
    EXAMPLE - the same old woman happened to have butt-sag hanging BELOW her shorts and back-sag hanging over the
    back-strap of her halter top.

    #3 - If your belly extends out further than your boobs, do not wear a bikini top with your shorts in a department store.
    EXAMPLE - she was a young girl with several children around her, she easily tipped the scales at 250 pounds or more.
    Maybe she thought she looked sexy, but the rest of us threw up a little.

    #4 - If your feet are really ugly, don't wear flip-flops in public unless you're at the beach.
    EXAMPLE - unfortunately there were too many of these to list. Jeff Foxworthy once said," If your toenails are three
    different colors and NONE of them are polish - flip-flops are NOT for you."


    After being grossed out by the first 2 women I started looking at the floor - which was why I noticed just how disgusting some toenails are. I'm going to stay home for awhile in an attempt to regain my appetite.



    ???????Anybody else have one?????????

    If we feel the need to call you ''Britney Steers'' behind your back, you are obviously dressing inappropriately. This is in reference to my overweight 24 yr old sister who thinks she so hot and dresses as if she is very thin.

    I'm going to second the "just cause you can - doesn't mean you should"!

    This rule also applies to low rise jeans. If you're a size 32, "low rise" is not a fashion statement you should be making.....I'm an 18 - trust me - not pretty!!!

    Oh, and bras - ladies ladies ladies - out in public="girl" support!!!!

    socks and sandles - DON'T DO IT!!!!!

    I'm by no means a "fashionista", but seriously people use a MIRROR!!!!

    everybody has a muffin top - it only appears if your pants are too tight. You could be 6feet tall and weigh 120 pounds, but if your pants are too tight then you will have a muffin top. It's seems to be the easiest way for a skinny person to look fat.

    I have noticed, looking at my mom's HS pics from the 70's, that they were all so slim without being anorexic looking. the girls in my senior class of 2003 were skinny in that emaciated way, and the ones of us who werent (I am 5'8" and weighed 135 when I graduated, NOT fat) were called fat... I didnt have a muffin top unless I wore my jeans too tight. I have discovered that a higher waist hides a multitude of rolls!

    Do not wear UGGS. EVER. These are the most hideous creations the Fashion World has tricked us into buying. I think they were originally meant as a joke....shoe designers punking each other....we thought they were serious.
    Step away from the UGGS. [​IMG]
