On a scale of 1-10, where are you? Girly-girl ?


Recommended Posts

Probably around a 5. I do like make-up (very light mineral coverage), but I'm also pretty low-maintenance in all other aspects (clothes, nails, hair, etc). I prefer to be outdoors and like to dress as such (ie. wearing Chacos vs cute wedge sandals).

LOL< as usual I will screw up any analysis you want to make. :D

 

I don't wear makeup (unless it's a night out, and only then lipstick & mascara..no foundation or powder etc), don't care if I am stylish according to anyone elses opinions but my own.... I wear simple, interchangable clothes...

 

HOWEVER....

 

I wear extravagant, vintage costume jewelry <ALL THE TIME>...dye my hair....hate body hair....rarely wear sensible shoes...have a coat fetish.

 

So I have quailities of both...just not in easily definable ways, KWIM?

 

I would NEVER be caught dead in jeans, but if I am in my house I will wear ratty old pjs...

More girly every day. :001_smile: I keep leaning more pink, more floral, more frill. I'm in a very traditional marriage, so I've always been very much "the girl." But as I get older and a bit happier and more carefree, I start heading even more that way. The only things that hold me back from being in the 9-10 range are beliefs against consumerism and toward minimalism. :001_smile:

9. A solid 9

 

ETA: I suppose I ought to elaborate. I wear jeans and skirts interchangeably. It is nothing for me to be home all day in a skirt. I'm not a fan of dresses unless it is one of my little black dresses. I have 5 inch heels that I wear with them.

 

Toe nails are polished, hands are manicured.

 

Eyebrows are groomed and plucked.

 

Putting on make up is part of getting dressed. So is putting on earrings, watch, bracelet, ring(s)

 

Underwear matches both upper and lower and most of the time the outfit.

 

Hair is cut in a style that requires minimal fuss but not boyish. It changes color every 6-8 weeks.

 

I think spa days are fun. I love to shop

 

Where I'm lacking in my girlishness is that I don't care much for pink or pastels. I'm rather a purple/plum, green, black girl.

This! But I do wear jeans in public :). My style is not trendy but rather unique to my personality. I love vintage clothing (or vintage look clothing) and I change my hairstyle frequently. I leave home without makeup frequently unless going out for an "event".

Pretty close to 1 (Tomboy). The exception is that I don't wear short hair. I look too much like my brother, and I don't want to be mistaken for a guy (or for someone who is trying to be a guy IYKWIM). I have thick, wavy hair that I wear a little below the shoulder, in a very low-maintenance hair style (i.e., run a comb through it once a day). Oh, and (keeping in mind I'm in middle age now) I remove un-ladylike facial hair. ;)

 

I own no make-up, almost never wear jewelry, do not color my hair, prefer ankle-length jeans and T-shirts, and wear lady dockers to church. I'm happily NOT well-endowed, so I rarely wear a bra, and my highest suit/dress heels are about 1.25". I let my earring holes close up decades ago. I do clean up pretty nicely when I "need" to wear a suit/dress, but I still won't wear make-up.

I'm probably a 3 or 4. I am a lazy dresser, yoga pants, lots of workout wear even though I don't work out. I am all about comfort. I wear a little makeup if I know I will see someone I know when out and about.

 

I think I may be more girly at heart but am too lazy to do it. :tongue_smilie: I wait way too long between pedicures, haircuts, and updating waredrobe, but I love when it's done and I look nice.

Somewhere in the negative range.

 

:lol:

 

That's probably how I think of myself but I don't look like it. I don't really know if looks count or more how you dress and such. I look very "girly" whatever that means. I don't really try though. I wear simple clothes and I don't wear makeup or style my hair, it's just a wash and go style.

 

But then again I love fabrics and making things pretty. My house has solid decor, etc.

 

But I'd rather drink a beer and sit around in jeans with no shoes than go shopping or something.

 

ETA: I do wear skirts. But mostly in the winter because it's comfortable. I wear minis with leggings and tall boots because it is very wet here in the cold months and I'm short so pants always drag and get wet. I am girly only due to practical purposes :D

I can't even answer that. I haven't put on make-up all week. I've sported a messy bun/ponytail and I've worn jeans or yoga pants all week. However, Saturday and Sunday I'll be in sequins and beads, full make-up, false eyelashes, fancy hair, and jewelry. I'll be bellydancing on a festival stage and I can't think of anything much girlier than THAT.

 

Feast or Famine. Story of my LIFE!

I've been thinking about this a lot lately-I seem to be shifting somehow. Where are you at on the scale? 1 being total Tom Boy, could care less...to 10 - wouldn't let anyone even see you without makeup on?

Midrange. Maybe 6. Always wear a touch of makeup but not the full treatment. Do style my hair, but an easy care quick style. I'm extremely fast and low maintenance in my older days. T

Don't *even* get me started on what we call "Grandma Hair" - those pesky one or two whiskers you get as you get older. They are as strong as a bread tie and just about as thick. Hurt like crazy to pull, swear they are attached to the other side of your head...ow!

 

I really need to do something about these nails, they look like a washerwoman print from the 14th century.

 

Do I even own anything floral? Ah, ya, I do. One swimsuit and one dress. Note: need this.

Probably a 2. I have ingrained female habits, like not leaving the house without makeup and dressing my lab up in pink collars and a pink raincoat. Otherwise, I'm pretty much a tomboy and have been all my life.

 

I like hanging out with guys, I find them easier to deal with than most women, I don't do my nails, my hair...well it's long. I played with Hot Wheels as a kid. I joined in the football games, spitting contests, and my house was the place to skateboard. I cried when I got my period the first time, I hate wearing a bra (but I do), and I was not sorry to have a c-section when ds was born, the thought of childbirth freaked me out.

 

I panicked when I was pregnant thinking I wouldn't know what to do with a girl. I tended to be the one to tell ds to buck up when he got hurt, dh is more a nurturer in the physical department.

LOL, my wardrobe is chock full o' vintage. If I could get away with looking like I was in Mad Men I would totally do it. I have some house clothes that my husband says "Good morning, Laurie Petrie!" ;) I love classic looks...

 

I easily have 40 vintage coats. I used to have more. I also use fabric from old dresses to make new skirts.

 

Maybe I am more girly girl than I'd like to admit... just not in the standard idea of it anymore.

 

I am definitely not girly in my personality, though. I only get along with women who get along better with men, as I get along better than men. I do all the "man work" in the house.

I'm not sure where I would be. On the one hand, I put on at least mascara and lipgloss right after brushing my teeth every morning. I do like to dress nice, do my hair, give myself manicures on the weekend, etc.

 

On the other hand, I also have a couple of sets of Carhartts, barn boots and spend a part of every morning and/or evening shoveling s#!t. I can drive a semi and I can split wood faster than my dh.

 

But... I would never want anyone other than my family to see me doing those things because I think it makes me look really -- unlike me.

 

I have some serious identity issues, perhaps? :lol:

Good Tweezers, every woman over 35 needs a good pair of tweezers.

 

Florals? Oh, I'd forgotten about them. Does camo count as a floral? It's a pattern.

 

I did buy lilac colored Converse the other day, but that's the color that was on clearance. They go with my camo pants. :lol:

Hey, there's something I haven't thought about in a million years. Go get my toes and feet done up. Last time I had a really good one done was like.. 2005?

 

I don't know if I can go as far as wearing toe rings - maybe if I had the right sandals or something.... I don't think I've worn an ankle bracelet since 8th grade.

 

How fancy can a girl do her feet up?

I'm probably a 2-3. No makeup. "Doing my hair" is just running a brush through it, although it is long. I wear what's comfortable and have 0 sense of style.

BUT the older I get, the more girly I get....and sometimes I'm all over the map with different things. :)

 

Not sure where my daughter came from. She is a TOTAL girly-girl. She'd probably rate a 12, LOL.

I'd say I'm a 6 with aspirations of being a 9 :lol: I don't leave the house without light makeup or without my hair looking nice. I dress to flatter my hourglass figure...but I wear jeans, capris, and shorts more than dresses and skirts! I love love love shoes but high heels feel weird. I like classic styles but would love to wear funky accessories more often. It's so difficult for me to actually buy myself something new that dh drags me out a few times each year!

7? 8? I always wear makeup if out with my husband or at church. But especially in the summer that is just 2-3 coats of mascara and a good dose of lipstick. I never go out of the house in anything less than fitted jeans and t-shirts. It has to fit and look good. :) I have a pair of 3 inch boots that I'll wear with anything. I update my wardrobe as much as possible on a single income and five children. I sell on ebay so buy most of my clothes off of there. My hair is curly and thick so I can wear it down or pin it up easily. My hair is very easy to fix but can look very fancy if I want. However I am the first at the line to play football... So girly if I want to be and a total tomboy if I want. However if I play football I will still make sure my hair looks cute. :)

under 35 need good tweezers too. :) Slinking out now to check my face. One time my son stole my tweezers. Not a good day :)

Totally conflicted.. in some ways 1.. in other ways 10. lol. Im such a boy when it comes to 99% of my life.. (ex. love football, would rather die than watch a chick flick, totally into action movies/books, I live around the house in tshirts and basketball/cheer shorts, whenI go out its mostly jeans and hoodies.. although I just discovered the awesomeness (haha) of yoga pants!)

 

BUT.. I love makeup, hair and nails.. I spend hours on them and I love watching youtube tutorials,lol. Im such a guy.. I just like to feel like a pretty guy, I guess?

 

**BTW- I know this post is a mess, typing one handed feeding baby. (I type this so much I need to put it in my siggy:))

There are times I care and there are times I couldn't care less. Today I haven't showered, so my hair isn't done, no make-up, and I 'm wearing a t-shirt and jeans with Chacos. I will be going out in a bit just as I am. I'll be stopping at the library then taking my kids swimming. While they swim, I'll be doing kettlebell which is why I haven't showered yet. If I'm going out all day (and not hitting the gym), then I do get myself together, complete with make-up and slightly nicer clothes.

I'm genuinely conflicted.

 

I was raised being TOLD I wasn't pretty, wasn't feminine, 'built like a brick sh!thouse' had 'legs like lumberjacks compared to the other girls', etc, etc,etc.

 

I've always *wanted* to be feminine. But now, I have 0 idea how the heck to do that, and am really self concious about even attempting it. I mean, what would Wolf and the kids think if I went from 'utility' to 'feminine'?

 

Probably that I'd lost my mind. :glare:

a 2 or a 3. I despise the way make-up feels on my face. I wear my hair in a ponytail everyday. I have never had a manicure or pedicure and I have no desire for either one of them. In summer I wear t-shirts, shorts and flip-flops or sandals. Since I live in TX and we have summer for 10 months out of the year that's what I wear pretty much all the time. I don't like high-heels and never got the hang of walking in them. I like dresses ok but I'm most comfortable in shorts and tees. The only jewelry I wear is my wedding ring. I do believe in clipping my nails, wearing deodorant, washing my hair and bathing every day. I live in a house with 3 males--I am the queen no matter what :)

Probably around a 2 or 3. I wear sweats and t-shirts around the house, jeans and t-shirts out of the house. I haven't worn heels in years. I never wear make-up, don't do my nails, barely do my hair.

 

The only thing remotely girly-girl is that I have long hair.

 

 

This is pretty much me, too. Except that I like to wear long skirts with leggings occasionally in the wintertime, so maybe that bumps me up to a 3-4?

Probably a 3, maybe edging toward 4.

 

I wear light make-up -- concealer over the dark spots, tinted moisturizer in the summer and light foundation in winter -- every day. My hair is always styled, although it's a simple cut. I have it cut every three weeks and colored every nine. I dress plainly (solid colors, no florals or prints ever) but everything has to be pressed and neat.

 

But that's the extent of it. I've never had a manicure or pedicure and hope I never have to experience one. I can't think of anything more boring. I've had a couple of facials and hated every second of it. I don't know and don't care about what's fashionable. I do the bare minimum eyebrow (or chin hair!) plucking when I think of it.

Hmmm. I'm probably a 3? I usually wear makeup, but I wouldn't if I had an ounce of color to me (oh, sometimes my rosacea flares up, but that's not really the "color" I was looking for :glare:.) I'm not really a tomboy either though. I hate watching or playing sports. I don't do any kind of nail things. I usually wear a necklace and my wedding ring, but that's about it for jewelry. My style is very casual, I don't have fancy underwear, and I have some cute wedge heels but I can't actually walk in regular heels. My favorite alcoholic beverage is beer... but I am totally against body hair, so that counts for something, right? I could probably look really pretty if I had the $$ and the time, but most days I just look like someone who really needs a makeover.

In my appearance and hygiene habits, about an 8.

 

In my personality, I'm about a 20. Don't like guns, don't like super outdoorsy activities, don't like sports, don't like manual labor, not a tough chick, sensitive, emotional, hate bugs and rodents, etc, etc.

I don't even make the scale. I'm somewhere in the negative numbers. :D

 

I suggested to my husband that we go to a shooting range for our anniversary. I love, love, LOVE watching Ultimate Fighting. You couldn't pay me to wear make-up or nail polish. I've never had a mani/pedi. The last time I wore make-up was when I got married 14 yrs. ago... unless you count Burt's Bees Chapstick. I'm a solid jeans and t-shirt girl. The mere suggestion of wearing a dress or donning something frilly will result in daggers being thrust from my eyeballs. I'm not even sure if I own a coat, but I do sport a mean hoodie. I would rather be mucking a stall or dealing with animals (fur, poop, scratches, bites, and all) than get dressed up for a fancy dinner. My one redeeming girly attribute would be my longish hair. That said, I'm not completely gone. I don't make inappropriate bodily function noises in the presence of others. :tongue_smilie:

I guess I'm confused by what girly is exactly though. My husband hates guns and most sports. Does this make him girly? I mean really now that doesn't seem like a girly/not girly sort of thing to me.

 

No, I don't think that alone is girly/non-girly. But in general, I would say sports (thinking especially of the "ball" sports) and guns tend to be more of a masculine thing. Just in my opinion, of course.

 

My dad is girly. But he loves sports. He's what you would define as "metrosexual." I think it is very much the overall personality.

No. It is well known that men who are into guns have "compensation issues" going on. No worries there. But not playing sports is clearly girly. So he ends up only semi-girly :tongue_smilie:

I think it would be easier to get someone who knows me in real life to answer.

 

But, this is me:

 

Makeup daily.

Shower daily, hair washed, products applied, etc.

Rings and earrings daily, sometimes more. I love having lots of earrings and such to choose from.

Toenails polished reddish-pink; don't update as much as I'd like. I wish they always looked perfect.

Fingernails -- clear coated.

 

Yoga pants and such at bedtime. 95% of time wearing jeans or shorts with tops. Dress up a little more when I go out.

Me, either. But then my dd has a pink rifle. :D I don't think the absence of a stereotypically male activity is the same as girly, if that makes sense.

 

I thought we were talking more about appearance and personality. If we go by hobbies, I fall some, because I like math (and everyone knows Barbie says math is hard :lol:,) like to shoot, etc. I'm the person in our home who sets up the electronics and researches techie stuff. But I do it with manicured nails and full makeup. :D

Also, if you look at what I listed, and put those qualities on a man, wouldn't you define him as girly? :tongue_smilie:

Oh I like this answer! I'm pretty much this...

I don't go all frilly and floral (gag), but I do like new clothes and to look nice. My jeans must fit and flatter. I don't like sloppy tees and baggy sweatshirts. (though, there IS a time and place for a good hoodie!) I'll wear a skirt or dress if/when I can find one I like. I love shoes. Don't own many, but I love 'em! They range from Chucks to tall boots (as in, ones with heels, not muck boots ;) )

 

And though initially I agree with much of this personality assessment..I still waffle. I get along better with guys. Always have. I'm doing better with women, but, mmm, no. Guys are easier. I don't like super outdoorsy stuff or sports either. Me and manual labor? Laughable. I can be sorta tough-ish LOL on occasion and I don't mind guns.

 

I aspire to be more girly....I just don't know how to pull it off. I'm not very good at that outfit coordination thing. I need a course! Shoes, tops, pants....and accessories!?! :confused:

Well I guess I am a 10 because no matter what, I never leave the house without full make-up (natural looking except for eyeliner and lipstick), my rings, and usually my larger gold hoops. Those jewelry items are an absolute must, sometimes I add an extra necklace although I always wear my gold chain with the pendant dh designed. I almost never go out without at least a nicer t-shirt, jeans, nicer shoe, but last night I wore a sweatshirt while grocery shopping acceptable clogs. It was pouring out and I just didn't care.:tongue_smilie: I also fully style my hair EVERY day.

 

Dressing more lady like has become more important to me and this summer I bought several dresses. To my surprise I was cooler in them!

 

I am usually casual but like a nicer type t-shirt at a minimum, and am buying more and more blouses.

 

It's quite funny to see me in muck boots, blouse, jewelry and make-up out in my barn, but such is my life. :biggrinjester:

 

ETA: i see others are also adding personality. Girlie personality is about a 2. I have all the girlie emotions and feelings but LOVE to ride 4-wheelers, have a rescue farm, love ANYTHING outdoors. I'm a simple person in that way. I'd take a mountain hike, overnight in a lodge with fire over being wined and dined in the city ANYday.

 

I also love to crochet, want to knit, felt, quilt, etc.

 

And I love it this way:D
