Yet, many people hate on girls who come out looking good, smelling good and take those 15-minute breaks to go to the bathroom and "freshen up." I admit I've thought "Seriously? Geez! So vain."
But in truth, who runs the fashion world?? The Vain! Vanity makes you check yourself in just about every mirror you go across. Your hair is always perfectly in place. The lipstick you smeared during dinner is always back in place just a few minutes after dinner because you had the mind to reapply.
The "non-vain" of which I can be a victim at times, run the risk of having something out of place for a long period of time. Yes, it's human but it can also be embarrassing. Ergo, trying to make the right impression. Being unvain makes you look sloppy sometimes and more indifferent than you intend to look.

A FULL-LENGTH mirror never hurt anyone. A lady invested in wall-sized mirrors in over 5 rooms in her luxurious house. Her friend shouted her down but that same friend stood in front of each mirror for long periods of time fixing her skirt and hair constantly. She refused to admit her vanity.
If you actually CARE about looking your best ALL the time, don't be afraid to look in the mirror more than twice a day. You'll love the results and your acquaintances will too. The mismatched outfit you wore to the other party may also never happen again if you have the fashion eye and a full-length mirror to tell you "Who the Fairest of All [is]." Be vain in fashion to appear your best. Ciao!
