Hey there! Just curious about how people are viewed! I manage a small 50's themed diner, and as part of the uniform I require the wait staff to wear vintage clothes. Girls in poodle skirts/poof dressed, victory rolls, oxford/baby-doll heels
Men in jeans and a white t-shirt with slicked hair
One of the girls that works for me loves the style so much she has adopted it into her everyday wear, she is adorable! The problem is she said that ever since she started dressing this way people give her strange looks in the street and men stopped asking her out completely! She loves the style and says she feels like she gets to dress up everyday but wants to stop because of how people treat her. What do you think of this?

I think the style is awesome. Who cares if people look at you. People stare at other people because they feel threatened when they see someone that is doing what makes them happy while they (the staring people) themselves are forced down by their own insecurities and conform to what the masses agree on. So who cares what a person like that thinks about you. And who wants to date someone that isn't interested in you for who you really are? This way if she continues to dress in the 50s stuff and express her true self she will weed out the close minded and the douche's without having to waste time playing the pointless dating game with them. That's just my opinion.0

I'm really surprised on how she is being treated! I am starting to dress this way and I am getting nothing by compliments and good attention!
I guess it depends on where you live. I'm from Canada.
I think she should still rock the look. Especially if she loves it so much. Maybe she should see if there are any groups for people who dress vintage in her area. Maybe they can offer advice and support?
