Where do you usually shop for clothes? Is there a theme in what you wear? What would you wear if you didn’t care what you looked like?

    my standard daily gear are shorts, t-shirts, athletic shoes – sometimes I go the extra mile and put on a baseball hat.

    I know it’s not easy to maintain my couture, but I try.

    typical SoCal outfit…..

    I happened upon a LuLa Roe trailer. My first thought was that the patterns were dowdy. I found a bright and cheerful looking dress. It was a hot 4th of July day and I showed Immortal Pirate the dress I bought, then balled it up in a wad and shoved it in my carry-all bag. I figured that I would have to run it through the dryer to unwrinkle it at home. However, when I pulled it out of my carry-all bag, it looked as fresh and unwrinkled as when I bought it. LuLa Roe would travel nicely in a suitcase. I like the look of my dress — short in front and long in back — it goes well with boots. I’m wearing LuLa Roe and Haulin’ Sass!!!

    If I don’t care what I look like, then jeans and t-shirts are my everyday fare. I learned to wear socks no matter what shoes I wear —- because everything bites and attacks my feet here in the desert of Arizona.

      @ladybarbara I have heard of Lula roe. Your ensemble sounds pretty. Yeah, watch your feet. I was watching a news story this morning where a woman’s foot got bit by a copper head three times outside of a steak restaurant in Virginia.

        @Scarlett Arizona has scorpions!!! I got stung by a big scorpion on the bottom of my foot. I was going back to California the next day, so I put up with the pain that went all the way to my hip. The next day I drove back to California with a painful leg. Once home, I called the doctor and had an appointment to have it looked at the next day —– that would be the third day after the sting. By then, it was going away. A few months later, I was stung on the toe by a little red scorpion. Knowing that I had survived before, I just waited out the four days with pain all the way up to my hip. Everything in Arizona is trying to poke, stab, sting, and bite.

    REI, (Recreational Equipment, Inc.) I love clothes that don’t wrinkle, and dry fast. I go to little boutiques for my fancy clothes. I like my clothes to be well made, unique and sustainable. I don’t give two shits about if something is in season, or in style. If I am comfortable and I look good/decent, that is all that matters.

      @Gina that is actually the rule of fashion now, to wear what you feel comfortable in.

        @Scarlett Well then, call me a trend setter. :O) I do love practical clothes, but what do you think of people wearing very comfortable clothes to the symphony, or a nice Jazz club? The west coast is super casual, but I do like people to dress up a bit for nice events.

    i shop thrift store because i feel like there are more chances for individuality and cool finds. and of course the price suits me. and it feels like recycling, which is happy earth shopping.

    if i cant find waht i need i buy new. there are of course other things i buy new…

    side note, it is amusing that when i thrift store shop, i often end up with a few particular labels. im not buying for the labels. i try on based on need, colour, style and fit. and i often discover when ive gotten home, that i have found yet another piece of clothing by the same brand. (didnt know i was a denver heys girl ;) neato

    im really in to long woolie dresses over leggings. or summer dresses with sweaters and leggings. i love flow. but i also love man shirts, studded belts and jeans. gypsygirl cowboy? canadian? i dont know. i wear what i like, i wear things that dont hug? i LOVE COlour and retro and vintage patterns with a side of bad ass :)

      @BelleMadre I wear dresses about 90 percent of the time. I like sundresses with sandals in summer, and dresses with boots and tights in winter. I like vintage things. like this website called mod cloth. Kinda pricey, so I always only shop their clearance. What you wear sounds pretty!

        @Scarlett when winter comes i am the queen of layers. bring on the leggings and dresses and long skirts made of jeans and so many sweaters and hoods :rolf: im too tall to be an elf, but i feel like thats what i dress like in winter. a winter elf.
        im not a fan of short shorts. i have some board shorts and things i wear under skirt things but i like my clothes like i like my bedroom decor, made and altered but not raggy

        here is a story of me…

        when i was a little girl i LOVEd being outside. digging in dirt, rolling around with our dogs, chasing sister down from trees, swimming in ponds. my sisters called me a tom boy and it used to piss me off so much :D because to me even then i thought no way im a girl who loves dirt, isnt afraid of bugs. because i was also as girlie as the fairy princesses i read about. when i was indoors i would change into the craziest flowiest dresses i had. if i could dress like a butterfly i would. but i was practical. i just didnt want to get my pretties dirty in the muck! so i was more girlie than any one realized. im still like that. i love being in flowy dresses of wraps at home. the older i get the more i embrace dresses. not fancy. i only own like 3 fancy dresses and even those are more casual than any one else wears :D but gimme All the retro print gimmegimmegimme but dont expect me to wear it outside :D

        @BelleMadre You sound like I was as a little girl. I could rough around with the boys, and play house, dolls and color with the girls. Hhhmmm, when playing “house”; I always wanted to be the dad so I could leave the house and go outside. I would change my clothes throughout the day so much going from one activity to another, I would have pile of clothes at the end of the day. I made my mom so mad. I know I have posted this before, but here I am during one of my dress up sessions. I wore my slip outside my cowgirl skirt before Madonna did. :)

    I can’t say I am really a “shopper”

    If I need a golf shirt I’ll buy 3 or 4 different colours just so I know I don’t need to specifically get one for a while.

    My kids recently commented after a trip to the Gap that I finally bought something that actually looks like it fits. I have very little concern about how anything looks. I just buy something that covers, or doesn’t cover.

    If a shirt is particularly ugly I can’t resist. The last one I bought at a flea market actually had my wife saying, “Please no” but I just couldn’t pass on a vintage, 1976 Montreal Summer Olympics, CBC sports team official shirt. $20 and then found another on eBay for $150 to show her I can still find a bargain on ugly any day.
