My Eyes...MY EYES!!!

To the woman I saw in Starbucks this morning who was wearing tights with nothing over them and a much too snug knit shirt that just barely covered her stomach...

Just because they make those tights and that shirt in your size...well...that doesn't mean that you should wear them. EVER!!

  4. Haha, those people just make me laugh.

    And that is a great rule of thumb "Just because they make it in your size, doesn't mean you should wear it."

  6. Oh dear! What a sight that must have been! Sounds like she needs to learn to dress her body type!

  7. I've seen this too. Tights do NOT equal leggings, or pants! I don't mind leggings with a long sweater, but tights with a short sweater? Not ok.

  8. There are definite advantages to living up here in the land of snow and ice. That woman would have frozen to death a long time ago. Or put on my sensible clothing.

  11. As someone who spends a lot of time just shaking my head in amazement over what people choose to wear, I understand.

  12. Oh my word. What is wrong with people? And your post title was THE BEST!

  13. LOL!! That is so funny. I used to wear tight leggins in the 80's but we wore long shirts over them. Why didn't you snap a picture of that??!!

  14. Oh my goodness, this is SO true. I love your rule of thumb, every woman out there needs to follow this! And since when have tights equaled pants? I think not. Kathy

  15. You are so right...it reminds me of the beach. I can always find someone that looks worse than me on the beach! I mean really...just because they make bikinis, doesn't mean EVERYONE needs to be wearing one! DUH!!!

  16. You are hilarious. I just saw someone dressed in a similar fashion in my Starbucks. I think some people forget that they are in public...Starbucks is not your personal kitchen, get it together, people!!

  17. That must have been an awful way to start off the day! BTW, I posted about the V-day blog swap.

  18. OMG OMG OMGoodness!!

    yeah. we need, as americans, to sit down and have a national conference on what is NOT acceptable. tight pants or leggings don't look good on everyone... in fact, do they really look that good on ANYONE? :) sorry your eyes had to see that.

  19. What in the world? I wonder about people and their mirrors sometimes....

    ReplyDelete
  20. We have a saying at work. It's "She really needs a friend." and that basically means that whatever she is wearing, someone should be nice enough to step up and tell her she looks awful!! Or, she at least needed a mirror!!Sorry you had to look at that -

    I posted my Valentine Swap today - if you get a chance, come take a look!!

  23. All I can say is I am SO glad you didn't have a camera on you! ;)

    ReplyDelete

  25. Did she have on underwear under the tights....please say yes!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I so agree with you...too funny! Spandex went out of style long ago!

  27. Hello!
    I've seen you on several blogs, so thought I'd drop over. What a funny post and I've had that same thought many times! Please feel free to stop by anytime...I love meeting new people! Have a great evening!

  28. Oh my - it's a hard and painful lesson to learn, but there's been a time for all of us, I'm sure (right? or just me???) where we've seen a picture of ourselves and learned it the hard way. The ole, belly button indent cause a dress is way too tight? Or how about the timeless muffin top & armpit fat? You are doing a good deed for Starbucks tights lady! I hope she appreciates it!

  29. I've often thought the same thing about bathing suits... they shouldn't EVEN make an XL bikini!

  30. Oh My LAWD!!!(lol) That is terrible! TRAGIC! I actually saw a very cute girl wear tights (they were almost sheer) with a TOO SHORT top (I think she bought them in the Rite Aid, and they came in the "egg shaped package" and I wanted to scream. This is much worse. Bless your eyes,after this sight!UGH!
