Hi,

I know this is an odd subject line, but part of my new job includes training retail people regarding the proper recycling practices of various material.

My 22 yr old DD has been working part time in retail for a few years--she still does since her new nursing job is only part time.

You know your post is funny cause I always wondered how do those minimum wage earners working in malls dress so well?

How can they afford those clothes and look so good?

Have any of you guys been to Italy??? I think marina has.

When I visited Italy the women there dress to the nines.. It was so unbelievable to me .. They dont wear jeans that often and def. no sweat pants.. They dress up like crazy just to go to the grocery store.or to walk their babies in baby carriages.

I was shocked at how the women look in Italy and dress.. Mostly gorgeous with perfect makeup and clothes and the clothes are not cheap.

It made me feel so inferior and I wanted to just burn

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh yeah, not only do Italian women look incredible in that country, but they must have a seperate motor for their backside because they can shake it oh-so-nice as they walk.

Not a put down on American women, but European women in general are just more feminine. They dress feminine,

Reeshie.. You always seem to go from orginal post to politics but okay I will bite..

I do agree with you somewhat.. I do think that in the US women have to fend for themselves more and so we do become more independent..and maybe a bit boisterous.. I am thinking Jersey Shore right now (lol)

I for one have to be more independent cause I have no one taking care of me.. Its not a choice I make. Its because I have no other choice.

If I could be all girly girl and feminine all the time I would.. I just cant seem to do that in this highly competetive man's world and especially in the US.

I mean i am Italian and I was brought up with a very facist and communistic dad .. My dad was even in the Italian army and he actually liked Mussolini and he often told us about Hitler.. (OMG).. So growing up like that makes one into a different type of person if you know what I mean..

PS.. we did live in the US.. My dad just lived in Italy until he was like 20 years old and then came to the US..

Hi,

I don't know if this is a political observation or a demographic one, but I did visit England and I noticed that women also dress very nicely there.

That is a very interesting observation and makes sense.

I am wondering if the women try to compete with each other overseas because each one is dressed better than the next.

I wouldnt want to compete with these gorgeous women. You know when I was in Italy I did
