People shouldn’t judge you based on your appearance, but they will

We don’t like to admit it but we do judge people based on the way they look. We shouldn’t  and most of us try not to, but sometimes it’s impossible not to make a connection between the way someone has chosen to dress and the type of person we assume them to be.

The image above is a prime example.  The woman wearing this combination of death-nails that hang out of her shoes and straining that stretchy legging stuff to breaking point could well be a Nobel prize winner who does rocket science projects as a hobby between sessions of teaching others how to deal effectively with their emotions, but that’s not the impression her attire is giving off.

I’m not saying you shouldn’t dress how you want. Everyone’s free to dress however they like,  of course. What I’m saying is you should at least be aware of the impression you’re giving off.

Crazy bitch tip: If you don’t want people to think you’re a crazy bitch, don’t wear a crazy bitch outfit.

I’m no fashionista. I’m certainly not up to speed with the trends but I can understand that some people are into looking nice, or edgy, or that they simply get bored with their look and want to change it up. It’s not my thing but it’s just another way for people to express themselves and have some fun and if that’s your thing, you get right into it and enjoy yourself.

Still, as unfashionable as I might be, I can still tell the difference between the good, the bad, and the ugly. I don’t tend to notice the good but I do pick up on the bad and I don’t think anyone is able to ignore the seriously ugly. The thing is, if everyone (even me) is noticing an effort towards fashion and thinking it’s fugly, how does the person wearing it not know?

That’s where we get into crazy bitch turf. I’m of the strong opinion that if your ‘look’ is crazy, it’s pretty likely that you’re a bit off kilter as well. If the way you present yourself to the world is nutty, chances are that the brain which chose to represent itself that way is not running on all cylinders.

Who am I to judge though? Take a look at this collection of stylised eyebrows and you tell me how many of these women look like crazy bitches…

So what do you think? How many of these women do you think would fall into the crazy bitch categorisation?
