    When I am in public  I notice females looking at other females appearances, what is on their mind?

    is it their clothes, style, makeup, etc...Are they getting ideas on how to look, or are they saying inside "I know I look better than "that,"?? Just curious?

    I don't think most are getting ideas about fashion.  I think, most often, they're either thinking something like, "Oh - I like her outfit" or "Oh, I like that sweater she's wearing."  Or else, they're thinking things like, "Why on Earth would she wear something like that?"  They may even be thinking something like, "She looks familiar.  Is she someone I went to school with?"

    I don't think this is just a girl/woman thing.  Some people notice other people more than others do.   I'm not someone who pays much attention to what others look like (and I'm a woman); so if I do, I'm either thinking the other woman is either awfully attractive and I'm admiring her, or else I'm thinking she's wearing something that doesn't look good on her.  I'm never comparing her to me, though.   It's probably no different than if I see a particularly pretty, ugly, or neutral building that, for some reason, catches my attention.  I'm me.  Other people (and things like buildings that catch my eye for one reason or another) are what they are and have nothing to do with me.

    It really varies depending on the situation! Some women may be looking at their clothes to get information on the latest fashions, some women might be comparing themselves to others, or they may be looking at other women for completely different reasons.

    Often insecurities get the better of someone and they feel twangs of jealousy while looking at other females but it also is often true that they could be simply admiring her or something about her.

    I often admire another girls shoes or shiny, healthy hair. I am also guilty of somewhat nasty thoughts, perhaps out of jealousy and once in a while out of disapproval.

    I think we all are curious people and have a tendency to check each other out. If I look at a female, I'm looking at her clothes, shoes, hair; because I either like the way she looks or I'm thinking I couldn't be caught dead in that. I've always people watched....its fun..
