I wish people (yes, people- guys are not off the hook just because the photo is of a girls’ outfit) would put more effort into dressing nicely. In the beginnings of the 20th century and prior, people from all areas of society cared about looking their best at every possible moment. Even if someone was so poor that they could only afford one nice outfit, they took good care of their clothes and took pride in looking the finest they could manage to.
Nowadays, nobody cares. Rich or poor, male or female, people walk around looking like lazy, boring ass without a second thought. Sweat pants, a ratty bun/hair, and flip flops are comfy, and there are certain places they might be okay, but I don’t personally understand why someone wouldn’t want to put more effort (or any effort at all) into their appearance before going out in public.
And before you talk about how ‘preppy’ and ‘old-fashioned’ I am, I’m not saying that people should have to dress conservative or classy or anything like that. Hell, I actually tend to wear punk and goth clothes a lot. However, I still care about what I’m putting on and I want to make myself look good in the realms of those styles. Point being, I’m not trying to say people should go back to square, stepford fashion: I’m just wishing that people cared about making themselves look good/pretty/badass/whatever, independent of one particular look or style.
I’m also not saying that you have to dress nice to impress men, women, or society in general. In fact, quite the opposite. I don’t understand why people don’t want to dress nicely for themselves. I feel more confident and happy when I take a shower and put on actual clothing, and on the rare days when, for whatever reason, I do wear sloppy clothes out and about, I feel terrible. Not because of other people’s reactions, and not because I or anyone else owes it to other people to look nice to them. Because personally, I feel that I owe it to myself to take pride in my appearance and not walk around looking gross and like I don’t give a crap about anything.

contradicting post. you want people to dress for themselves but when it doesn’t fit your idea of it, they clearly aren’t dressing for themselves anymore. which do you want?

I’d dress nicely but I don’t have time or money for that. Hell, even if I had money, I still wouldn’t have time to dress nice all the time. Do you know how much effort that takes?
I put in the effort when I go out on the weekends or I’m going to some sort of event. At school I just wear wear whatever I can find that’s clean, appropriate, and looks ok.

^
Be able to dressed nicely is a luxury that a lot of people don’t have. It requires time and money and most people today are more focused on getting by or getting out of debt. And honestly some people just don’t fucking care and that’s their right.

  No. I am below the poverty line and I still dress nice. A lot of people who know me, don’t know that I am constantly broke and I live with 5 other people. I was taught to make the effort to look nice. My grandma (lord bless her soul) would slap the race off of me if I went out of the house looking like “what and why”. Like was said above, a lot of people say that it is too hard and that they don’t have time. That is an excuse for being lazy and not making time to pick out an outfit before hand or just taking the time to coordinate what you but to the rest of your wardrobe
.  I shop at the thrift store, but that doesn’t mean that I just get anything. I find things that fit me and I can easily find something else to go with it. Even if It doesn’t and I want it anyway, I have learned to sew and tailor it to my body. By hand. I an fortunate to work at a place where I can wear just about anything as long as it is back. Remember, despite that we would like to think, people see you and make judgements from that. This is one way of letting people think better of you from the get go.

Fuck this. Nobody needs an excuse to not dress nice. You can argue over laziness or money or whatever else but the fact of the matter is nobody’s under any obligation to please you OR your grandma.
I don’t need to remember that people make judgements based on my appearance. I’d say everybody knows that and it’s pretty solidly reinforced. What I do need to remember is that people who are worth my time will like me anyway.
So bully for you for making it work and learning to thrift shop and sew and look nice, but hey, you’re still kind of a judgemental asshole about this particular issue. Maybe you should work on that if you care so much about people thinking better of you.

I have accepted the fact that you have a very strong opinion of me and are at odds with what I posted earlier. You are entitled to your opinion. I didn’t say anything about pleasing me or my grandma. You did. I was more pointing out the fact that if I had the luxury of disregarding what my grandma has taught me from a life being black and working hard, I am a fool.
Being black and female, I already have two strikes against me as I make my way into the world. I damned near don’t have a choice whether I want to look presentable or not. Adults do not see with the eyes of a child. I have to come with my “A” game at all times. Children even get judged for things that are not necessarily under their control. I, as a adult, have more control over what I put on my body and how I present myself.
One more thing, if you were sitting at a bus stop and a sloppy person came and sat by you, you would not move away or think that they were disgusting? That if a black man with gold teeth and saggy pants tried to get your attention, you wouldn’t think that he was going to try to do you harm? That someone sashaying back and forth on one end of the street with short shorts is a whore?
No, that sloppy person may be homeless or sick. The black man is just asking you for directions. That person at the end of the street is waiting for someone who is late to pick them up. You would judge them even if you didn’t meant to, even if you had the best of intentions. The only people who don’t judge people based on appearance are blind or have prosopagnosia.
I am pretty sure, no matter what you may want to believe, you have made quick judgments, whether it was race of what they were wearing,  as to who you want to associate with based on appearance. Oh yeah, YOU DON”T FUCKING GET TO CALL ME JUDGMENTAL! Unfortunately, that is not your super power.

If you say judgmental things, you are going to get called judgmental. Them’s the breaks. I get to call you whatever I want to call you. It’s not a super power and you already called a ton of people lazy, so I think you’ve lost the moral high ground on this one.
I don’t have any particular opinion of you. I don’t even know you. I have an opinion about what you said (namely, that it’s bullshit). You are not going to convince me that what you said is not bullshit by spinning hypotheticals about people at the bus stop. Whether or not people judge based on appearance isn’t the issue at hand - it’s whether or not you’re entitled to tell people that looking acceptable by your standards is mandatory and there is “no excuse” for not doing so.
And you’re not.

What do you think my standard is?

I post actual text on a reblog for once in a long time, and everyone is mad.  My priorities are not your priorities…..blah blah blah……you are so judgmental…blah blah….why are you so concerned about others……

Well Shitfire!!!!!!! I have just experienced a overflow of people who are mad at me for being a human being. As much as people would like human beings to be as nice as celestial beings, it is not going to happen. We have different lives, different upbringings, different like and different dislikes. As much as tumblr people may seem alike, we are just as different.

Think twice before you crucify someone for having a different opinion. That just turns into an argument and not a debate.

In the beginnings of the 20th century and prior, people from all areas of society cared about looking their best at every possible moment. Even if someone was so poor that they could only afford one nice outfit, they took good care of their clothes and took pride in looking the finest they could manage to.

Nowadays, nobody cares. Rich or poor, male or female, people walk around looking like lazy, boring ass without a second thought. Sweat pants, a ratty bun/hair, and flip flops are comfy, and there are certain places they might be okay, but I don’t personally understand why someone wouldn’t want to put more effort (or any effort at all) into their appearance before going out in public.

And before you talk about how ‘preppy’ and ‘old-fashioned’ I am, I’m not saying that people should have to dress conservative or classy or anything like that. Hell, I actually tend to wear punk and goth clothes a lot. However, I still care about what I’m putting on and I want to make myself look good in the realms of those styles. Point being, I’m not trying to say people should go back to square, stepford fashion: I’m just wishing that people cared about making themselves look good/pretty/badass/whatever, independent of one particular look or style.

I’m also not saying that you have to dress nice to impress men, women, or society in general. In fact, quite the opposite. I don’t understand why people don’t want to dress nicely for themselves. I feel more confident and happy when I take a shower and put on actual clothing, and on the rare days when, for whatever reason, I do wear sloppy clothes out and about, I feel terrible. Not because of other people’s reactions, and not because I or anyone else owes it to other people to look nice to them. Because personally, I feel that I owe it to myself to take pride in my appearance and not walk around looking gross and like I don’t give a crap about anything.

contradicting post. you want people to dress for themselves but when it doesn’t fit your idea of it, they clearly aren’t dressing for themselves anymore. which do you want?

I’d dress nicely but I don’t have time or money for that. Hell, even if I had money, I still wouldn’t have time to dress nice all the time. Do you know how much effort that takes?

I put in the effort when I go out on the weekends or I’m going to some sort of event. At school I just wear wear whatever I can find that’s clean, appropriate, and looks ok.

Be able to dressed nicely is a luxury that a lot of people don’t have. It requires time and money and most people today are more focused on getting by or getting out of debt. And honestly some people just don’t fucking care and that’s their right.

  No. I am below the poverty line and I still dress nice. A lot of people who know me, don’t know that I am constantly broke and I live with 5 other people. I was taught to make the effort to look nice. My grandma (lord bless her soul) would slap the race off of me if I went out of the house looking like “what and why”. Like was said above, a lot of people say that it is too hard and that they don’t have time. That is an excuse for being lazy and not making time to pick out an outfit before hand or just taking the time to coordinate what you but to the rest of your wardrobe

.  I shop at the thrift store, but that doesn’t mean that I just get anything. I find things that fit me and I can easily find something else to go with it. Even if It doesn’t and I want it anyway, I have learned to sew and tailor it to my body. By hand. I an fortunate to work at a place where I can wear just about anything as long as it is back. Remember, despite that we would like to think, people see you and make judgements from that. This is one way of letting people think better of you from the get go.

Scientists discover most relaxing tune ever

Sound therapists and Manchester band Marconi Union compiled the song. Scientists played it to 40 women and found it to be more effective at helping them relax than songs by Enya, Mozart and Coldplay.

Weightless works by using specific rhythms, tones, frequencies and intervals to relax the listener. A continuous rhythm of 60 BPM causes the brainwaves and heart rate to synchronise with the rhythm: a process known as ‘entrainment’. Low underlying bass tones relax the listener and a low whooshing sound with a trance-like quality takes the listener into an even deeper state of calm.

Dr David Lewis, one of the UK’s leading stress specialists said: “‘Weightless’ induced the greatest relaxation – higher than any of the other music tested. Brain imaging studies have shown that music works at a very deep level within the brain, stimulating not only those regions responsible for processing sound but also ones associated with emotions.”

The study - commissioned by bubble bath and shower gel firm Radox Spa - found the song was even more relaxing than a massage, walk or cup of tea. So relaxing is the tune, apparently, that people are being Rex advised against listening to it while driving.

The top 10 most relaxing tunes were: 1. Marconi Union - Weightless 2. Airstream - Electra 3. DJ Shah - Mellomaniac (Chill Out Mix) 4. Enya - Watermark 5. Coldplay - Strawberry Swing 6. Barcelona - Please Don’t Go 7. All Saints - Pure Shores 8. AdelevSomeone Like You 9. Mozart - Canzonetta Sull’aria 10. Cafe Del Mar - We Can Fly
