While at ShopRite my sister and I were quickly going through the isles in search for something. In one of the isle's was a frummy lady, wearing what looked literally like a black shower robe (a tad fancier, like, you may wear it to the beach), and a pink turban, towel material head covering. She looked absolutely terrible. I personally try to look a bit decent before I leave the house, I'm not super obsessed, but I do try to look decent; and my sister cares only a drop less than I do about what she looks like, yet we came into an agreement that neither of us would EVER leave the house like that. NEVER, unless our house were (Gd forbid) burning and we had to throw something on, because we were completely undressed.
As we were walking, I said to my sister "But I bet you, this same lady would never wear denim because its not considered "kavodik" to wear in front of Hashem."
My sister was like "oh yea, you're so right."
When I see people in Boro Park or Boro Park type people in Shop Rite, I honestly think they look ridiculous (those long unbrushed beards and shtreimals in 90 degree heat scare me). But at least they're wearing OUTDOOR clothing. When you're wearing a robe and towely turban thing, you're just asking to be blogged about! In my opinion denim is waaaaaaay more kavodik.
