You are who you are, the way you dress can change from day to day...

You could be an evil sleazy ogre dressed in an armani suite

or just

haroun el poussah in your swatch watch and Levis.

U can also be haroun dressed in an armani suite but, if she is gonna judge you from the beginning, she'll never see for herself, would she :P

would you have even noticed what she was wearing or what brand if the look her face when she saw you wasn't priceless?

I'm so not going to say oh she judged you or who you are who you are and its that person's loss ..

i'll say you were pretty quick to judge her too ..

YSL Dress or not .. she's still a person and she was judged by you .. did you ever think maybe she put on all that crap to impress her date?

We have to partially agree with inmotion. It seemed the judging went both ways..! As discussed before, in a society as highly looks oriented and materialistic as Dubai - unfortunately first impressions matter the most.

Obviously this chick pulled out the big guns (this must have had something to do with the venue too) and you pulled out your small glock :)

Somethings to consider:

a) the widesperead affinity for buying fake merchandise. Everything she was wearing (xcept the dress) is available in Karama for 5% of the original price.

b)she wanted to impress you and didnt want to pass on a chance to hook a potential sugar daddy :P

I am not sure how some people came to the conclusion that I was judging her...

To inmotion: in haroun's original post, i could only see him stating facts about the way she was dressed, i did not see anything more than that, let alone him judging her. besides...i see a contradiction in your reply. u first 'tut-tut' him saying he had judged her (when he didn't) then you asked him 'did you ever think maybe she put on all that crap to impress her date?'in other words asking him to judge her

To all:
i do agree with Sex&dubai, she could have worn it depending on the venue, could have bought all that from Karama, could have been a gold-digger...

she could have even dressed to impress, but, doesn't every female put on that 'little extra' perfume, or micro-touch ups to her make up for a first date?

if she doesn't, then she might as well go in her winnie-the-pooh pyjamas
