My girlfriend always dressed comfortably and practically until recently; she works at a professional job, and she would usually wear jeans, sneakers, T shirts or sweaters, etc.
About a month ago, she had her friend shave both sides of her head, but leave hair on the top and back of her head. I wasn't a huge fan of it but she said she wanted it for a while, but she was too afraid of being embarrassed if it turned out badly. But now that everyone is working from home, nobody can go out, she took the chance and she loves it.
Then she bleached her brown hair to blonde. Then in a week she dyed it florescent green.
And she was buying a lot of new clothes, crop tops and tank tops, really loud patterned pants, platform sneakers that look like running shoes but have a sole that's like 3 inches tall? Just generally flashy and eccentric stuff. And whenever I ask, she says that this is more her style but she's just been more comfortable getting into it when there's less social pressure.

I’m a teenage girl, and in my life I’m surrounded by other girls who wear revealing clothing.
Disclaimer: I have nothing against revealing clothing. You do you.
But, if I want to wear shorts when I’m swimming, and if I prefer to not wear crop tops, I shouldn’t be shamed for my choices. Frankly, I’m an active person and I don’t want my butt to slip out and to constantly fix my bathing suit. I don’t want to show off my body. And that’s okay!
My friends think it’s weird, and somehow they think I’m considering myself “holier than thou” for wanting to cover up, and explaining why I do. Yeah, I’d prefer not to show parts of my body I don’t want to show, thanks.
This isn’t because I’m religious, either. Or to not tempt men with my womanly body. Can’t I wear what I want and have it be comfortable?
If you feel most comfortable when wearing less clothing, I’m all for it! But we as a society need to become more accepting of those who feel confident with more clothes on. Too many times I’... keep reading on reddit ➡
So since I’ve been working from home I have meetings 2 days a week. But even during the days I don’t I still dress decently and wear a little makeup because it makes me feel good, and also my boyfriend compliments me a lot when I dress well, and say what you will but it’s nice.
But our roommate yesterday asked why I have to dress up so much in the house because it’s oppressive and weird. I explained why and she said it was egotistical to fish for compliments by dressing well, and that dressing so well makes her feel out of place.
For reference I was just wearing a casual dress and a little bit of makeup, it wasn’t like I was dressed for a wedding. But she wants me to dress down when I don’t have meetings, like sweat pants and a t shirt everyday.
Every time a Malayali actress appears in an interview with no makeup and with simple clothes, there'll be dozens of people(mostly men) applauding her for her "jade-free" look. I get that we Mallus like to keep everything minimal but what's up with calling women jada for wearing bold makeup or slightly revealing western clothes. I remember in the 2000s lots of people, including my own dad, used to shit on Ranjini Haridas for her choice of clothes and makeup in Idea Star Singers. Jada is also a word aimed at successful and famous women, eg-Parvathy and Nazriya fucking Nazim. There was this video of Nazriya with the cast of Kumbalangi Nights at some ceremony, she wasn't even doing anything, just eating candy and watching everything going on in the stage, but still, there was a bunch of people(again mostly men) calling her jada for just....existing? Same with Priya Varrier.
The word jada has lost its meaning honestly. It's probably the most overused word in the Malayalam dictionary.

I recently was halving some coworkers by my apartment for drinks. Typically we go to bars, but we thought this would be safer.
Around 7 we’re coming by. 2 of them would be people who are my superiors. One is just a standard superior, nothing really special, but another was a huge superior. Like this guy could one day be on the C-Suite of our company that has over a trillion dollars in assets.
My 19 year old sister was visiting. I was already going to allow her to have drinks with us (this is the United States), but I told her she needs to at least dress conservatively (for example, I was in business casual). I mentioned to my boss she’d be joining us, and he didn’t mind, but when I got to my apartment with everyone, my sister was dressed not at all conservatively.
She was wearing that thing (idk what it’s called) that’s like this half shirt that cuts off right below her chest and those jean shorts that are so short the pockets come out the bottom.
My bosses didn’t say anythin... keep reading on reddit ➡
I have a 6 year old yorkiepoo who is, in my opinion, the cutest thing in the world. I used to only dress him for weather, like a jacket and boots if it was cold and a thunder shirt to help him with anxiety during storms, but I noticed that he seemed to really like the clothes I put on him. He would wag his tail and get excited when I took them out and he would pull away when I tried to take his coat off, so I started dressing him in little outfits pretty often. If he cried or seemed upset about it I wouldn't, but he seems to like it some days and other days he seems pretty apathetic and unbothered by it, and I think it's cute. He even waits by his basket of clothes in the morning for me to pick out an outfit for him.
My partner doesn't like that I dress the dog up. He thinks it makes me look like a "crazy dog person" and like "one of those high maintenance people who treat their dogs like accessories." People around town also know that we are partners, so my partner worries that peopl... keep reading on reddit ➡
I've lately fallen in love with the idea of cross-dressing in a more bare and "provocative"? way, like short-short skirts and thigh accenting with socks. But passed the obstacle of first getting these clothes, whats the risk of doing it in a full house? is it just like hiding masturbation?? or are my family prone to find out quickly.
So one of my boyfriend's best friends, 'Samantha', was supposed to be having her wedding this weekend. Unsurprisingly, it didn't go ahead as planned; they have had to indefinitely postpone.
The couple announced a few weeks ago that they were going to hold a 'virtual wedding' on the same day, including a blessing by their vicar, and a party. They basically wanted to treat it like the day was still going ahead, and asked everyone to dress in what they would've worn on the day and get in a bottle of champagne/sparkling wine to toast the couple. We thought it was a good idea, and chose to wear the same clothes we would've worn on the day itself.
During the 'party' yesterday, the bride clarified straight that she wasn't wearing her actual wedding dress (she was in a very pretty white summer dress) because it was still at the seamstress', and she can't get it back right now.

(Disclaimer, i am a mostly gay male, 20y old)
It started with a skirt and knee highs. Wasn’t much, was kinda fun, but not much. But the main catalyst was one of my friends’ family having a BLM Fund raiding yard sale. Among the things offered were a bunch of jewelry for a for a dollar each and some really nice women’s boots that fit me. I figured “eh, why not” and got a choker and necklace plus the boots. It was alright, donned it on occasion in privacy but not much. The main catalyst was letting my sisters do my makeup and trying the jewelry on with my normal look (T-shirt and jeans or cargo pants) when my sister was having company over w/o parental oversight (I was actually the driver for them all.) They were very supportive, and even encouraged I try it with the skirt and stockings I got, as well as a sort of lacy black velvet/leather long sleeve tunic that i brought over, having found when cleaning out my clothing drawers (I live at my grandparents rn.)
Needless to say, I found... keep reading on reddit ➡
I don't remember others right now, but I remember thinking the same thing through many episodes!
Like the title says, she wears swimsuits and shirts that her boobs almost fall out of or do y’all out of all the time, wear shirts with sexual innuendos on them with shorts so short that you can’t even tell she has any on, leans forward in her low cut shirts to get other guys attention then constantly looks at them to make sure they’re looking at her. If there’s an attractive guy around she pushes her chest up or out to try to get noticed and wears shorts that have 2-3 inches of her butt cheeks hanging out with no underwear on and is just always seeking validation. I’m not really sure why she does this but I’m a pretty secure guy and always have been but the way she acts makes me feel very uncomfortable.
Am I being unreasonable in thinking that her behavior is a little inappropriate or disrespectful? I haven’t said anything to her but I want to because she ignores me to do this in public all the time to the point that even when we go grocery shopping she stays 15-20 feet away from me... keep reading on reddit ➡
I was just wondering if anyone here had any experience with dressing modestly as a young woman in todays world (I’m in my 20s). I do not dress modestly for any religious reasons, but because I find it empowering. I’m generally a socially anxious person, and dressing in the clothes that most young women wear today makes me self conscious of my body.
I don’t believe there is anything wrong with women who choose to dress the way they like. However, things like short skirts and shorts make me more self conscious. I’ve found wearing more plain, modest clothing (such as a loose jumper and non-skinny jeans) to suit me better. I feel less self conscious, and can focus more on what I’m doing day to day. This makes me feel empowered.
Sometimes I feel like I’m being judged for what I wear, especially around University campus and at parties. I don’t meet many young women who dress modestly for non religious reasons, and it makes me feel like the odd one out. I love the modest and sophisticated s... keep reading on reddit ➡
I’ll start, I had a an AOx4 patient extubated at 1500 to 4L nasal cannula on day, placed on bipap (per her request?) at 1700 for comfort.
I come on at 1900. 2000 she calls out complaining of pain at her RIJ central line site, I tell her to be patient I’ll snag her some Tylenol and be in shortly. Patient tech comes up to me 30 min later and informs me she had ripped up her central line dressing and started shoving tissues under the dressing. Horrified I go in and confirm, I firmly state this is a hospital, these devices are serious if you take this out by accident it could kill you. She says she understands.
I go to change the dressing. After I get sterile and have the line exposed, she starts grimacing and puts her finger right on the god damned insertion site to massage it! I freaked out and re-educated her. Finished the dressing change and by 0200 had to change it again because she did the same thing.
What are your central line/ sterile horror stories?
Easily my favourite episode so far. They even predicted exactly when I'd start to cry and welcomed it with that song of theirs. Hadn't cried or felt this emotional in a very long time and really want to thank the creators for making me feel this!
I apologize if posts like this aren't appreciated but I really needed a community to share this experience with especially given how literally no one I know has seen or even heard of this show. I wonder why.
