Do you ever compliment a complete stranger on something they are wearing?

I do! I love to see someone who has taken the time to look fabulous ~

  • Yes. When I worked at Target, I was always complimenting people on how good they looked. Makes em feel good that someone takes the time to notice, and only takes a second to put a smile on someone's face, who might otherwise be having a bad day. I've been told that more times than I can count.

  • Yes if I really like it. I might even ask where they got it.

  • Of course, esp shoes. I think shoe lovers always appreciate another fellow shoe lover's compliment

  • Sure, I do that all the time....although I think I'm doing it wrong because they always look at me super funny before saying thankyou lol....maybe they think I'm some crazy person who searches out people to compliment or something lol

  • of course!! i appreciate people wearing clothing that looks good and fits properly.
    sometimes, i even stop a sloppy-dressed pjs-wearing girl in the store to ask her where she got her flipflops, too...not!

     I figure if it is striking enough that I think it... then I should say it too. I have seen some of the most genuine smiles and heard the most sincere thank yous from complimenting a stranger.
