It's been fun reading this thread! you go girls!
i just wanted to comment on this one-
WOW...that just shows what an emphasis we put on outward appearances in America. It's sad.
My friend just did an experiment. She wore the same outfit everyday for 5 days in a row to our highschool to see if anyone noticed. (she was planning on wearing it longer, but her mom made her put clean clothes on)
No one noticed. In fact, they talked to her about their own clothing faux pas, like wearing a shirt twice in one week.
