In his latest blog entry, style guru Louis Licari talks about what motivates women to show off their glamorous side. What do you think? Do you think that women dress to impress men or other women?

Women dress to impress other women. Most men don't really care, or even notice what women are wearing.

I think it depends upon what the woman is trying to accomplish.

I dress to impress myself. Though, I think I may have been making some mistakes with the horizontal stripes....and who knew your mani-pedi didn't need to match?

I try to be impressive in general, but I don't try to show off my sexy side unless I'm around my husband. I do pick and choose what kind of attention I want to attract, but I do like to look successful, tasteful, and overall pleasant to be around.

Definately!! But I do think its mostly to impress other women, you can't denie you love the feeling you get when you truely believe you are the best dressed woman in the room. I know I do. Does that make me a bad person?

I agree because women love to compete against other women.
