How do I look

has anyone watched the show "How do I look". It's a makeover type show.
 I can't stand it, it really makes me angry. Some women do need help with their style, but some of them just have a unique style of their own and I don't think they need to be told that they look bad and get a makeover to look like everyone else.
I watched it last night and I was really upset, mostly because the womans sister refused to talk to her for over 2 years because she chose a cyber goth look. What kind of sister does that? And because the cybergoth woman wanted a relationship with her she gives up her personal sense of style to appease her. I was so upset.

Never seen that show on Jun 26, 2012 @ 12:21 pm

Never seen it but I feel like our styles separate us from each other they are our unique style, and I don't dress to please others if I'm comfortable in it and I like what I see when I look in the mirror that's all that matters... Personally I'm a huge fan of the 60s look whether it's "in style" or not.

I agree that everyone's sense of style is extremely personal and no one is in a position to judge. Cutting off a relationship because you don't like your sister's wardrobe/makeup? That's cruel and stupid.

However, people should be mature enough to both give and accept advice when done so respectfully and with loving intentions. When people choose embellishments that go to the extreme, like over-the-top plastic surgery, excessive amounts of permanent body art (especially ones of questionable tastefulness), or painful piercings etc, a concerned family member should feel allowed to ask their loved one why they are compelled to do express themselves in this way. Sometimes there is no reason and the only answer is "because I like it", but sometimes the reasons go deeper and are based in some psychological issues.

The main thing is not to jump to conclusions and judge people. The same should be true of those who strive for a really unique style and the way they may judge others who prefer a more conformist look.

I read the experience of that Ashley girl...I often wondered about some of those shows, they toss out her whole wardrobe only to buy her 3 outfits, that's way too few. The acting classes and extension removal aside, leaving someone with only 3 outfits is just plain rude.

I like the make over shows, though I havent seen any recently. I used to watch "What not to wear" and it was well done, I thought. Most of the people they bring on that show are older (40s and up I think) and they really don't know how to dress to be able to achieve what they want in life. Changing their wardrobe does help them in becoming more confident and comfortable, even though its different from what they are used to. It also makes them more appealing to employers, when they are dressed to accentuate their "good qualities" and not look like they are completely out of touch with reality.

I haven't seen the show you mentioned, but yes it is stupid to not talk to someone because of how they dress. You can say you don't like it if you need to, but to cut off all comunication seems extreme and unnecessary. Although I have an aunt on my mothers side who has completely stopped talking to me when my parents got divorced because she claims it was my fault, so I understand stupid people will find reason in anything to throw a hissy fit.
