I'm back in my RV now, surveying my wardrobe from a "single woman's" perspective. I have lived in jeans, sweatshirts, t-shirts, camp shirts, etc. ever since I've been RVing. Now that I'm single and want to make a better appearance (LOL!) I'm going shopping for more feminine clothing. What do you all of you wear out on the road?

OK, I'm not single, but my wardrobe consists of jeans, shorts, T-shirts, and sweatshirts. I can't imagine changing my wardrobe if I became single. Even if I were out looking for a man (which I wouldn't be), I figure if someone was so shallow that they didn't like me because of what I wore, then they're not worth having as a friend!

OK - so I'll get new t-shirts and jeans!! I was beginning to think I was abnormal!!

After being a Marine (starched and pressed uniforms), a paralegal, and a business owner (business suits . . .), dressing down on a daily basis has been difficult for me . . .

I see a lot of ladies that look like they just stepped out of a makeover walking out of RV's and I've always wondered how they did it on the road full time - if they WERE full-timers. I don't even own an iron anymore!

Not single,and don't plan to be any time soon,but even camping I do on occasion like to dress nice to go out to eat. I sometimes wear slacks,a shirt and maybe a tank top beneath the shirt. I won't buy anything unless its permanent press. I wash and dry on the permanent press cycle,then hang the clothes up immediately,no iron in the rv and haven't used the one in the house in years!

I usually wear jeans & t-shirts or button down dress shirts. I keep a "dressy" shirt (1 winter / 1 summer)and reserve 1 pair of slacks (usually khaki). All my clothes will "mix & match" due to my colour choices. This way I never spend any time choosing an "outfit" (I am NOT a morning person... I'm doing good to get my teeth & hair brushed in the AM). I currently don't have a dress (or in my case it would be a skirt). I haven't gone anywhere that I needed to wear a dress. If I did I would also have to buy heels, silk stockings, garter belt & makeup... I told David he could figure on an investment of well over $150 for a one day deal (got invited to a wedding that I didn't want to go to anyway).

www.llbean.com has a nice section on clothes that are able to hold up to traveling (easy care / wrinkle free type stuff). The clothes that I buy from them tend to really last.

BTW, I hate clothes shopping, shoe shopping and getting all dressed up. BUT when I do shop it's for well made, classic styled clothes that will last. The last "nice" dress that I bought was several years ago (tea-length formal) that retailed for a mere $350 (I like Jessica McClintock dresses). David freaked.

I'm addicted to shoes - I won't say how many pairs I have in the RV. I have a black dress . . . without the jacket it can serve as a cocktail dress with the right jewelry and accessories, without accessories it's just a nice black dress and with a jacket it's fine for a funeral. Actually, I have several dresses and skirts that I haven't worn since I cranked up and headed out the first time. Lots of shoes I haven't worn either but they're not going anywhere. I do hold myself to the rule that I have to get rid of a pair if I buy a new pair though. Unfortunately, I went nuts buying a t-shirt from everywhere I visited from Key West to Alaska . . . I have way too many t-shirts. Think I'll have someone make them into a nice quilt. For now I think I will go browse Coldwater Creek . . . .

I am not single but I have a few dresses on board. They aren't after 5 PM dress. I like to drive in them. It's more comfortable for me. A simple dress can go anywhere and it appears that you took time to look good, not that we really care about this when we are retired. Next time you are at a campground see how many women wear a dress. Not many, jeans are easy and rugged. Personally I like to go bra less because It's like being in your PJ's all day long. I hate the person who invented the bra.

I hate the person who invented the bra too, but unfortunately, if you are large in that area and need one, it's a Godsend. Can you imagine trying to fasten your pants over them? LOL!!

CC is my downfall. I shop their Outlet SO much the UPS man has my address saved in his GPS. They've got wonderful rayon items that travel perfectly & take up minimum space. HSN also has a brand called Slinky, that's great for no-care fashion. Again, shop their Clearance & wait for free shipping.

Like Happymi, I'm not single either, but I do keep 2 sets of neutral coordinates (2 slacks, 1 skirt, 2 shells, 1 shrug, 1pr med heeled mules) in the coach that'll mix/match for any occasion. 1 set of faux pearl earrings & 1 set CZ studs are all you need to dress up any outfit. They go with jeans & a t-shirt as well as dress clothes.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

I keep trying to convince myself I need a wardrobe but my checkbook tells me otherwise.
Right now I of course have uniforms for work
but for the weekends I have one pair of khaki
pants and tons of t shirts. Only one pair of
shoes, (new balance) I do have two nice blouses
that would go with my khaki pants, one black
suitcoat that I have no idea what it would go
with, used to have a black skirt and black/white
blouse but I don't think it fits anymore :-(
I started digging out my winter clothes from
the storage and most of it is sweats so there
again I have nothing really nice to wear. The
times I have gone to look at clothes I really
don't like the styles they have now adays, so
for now I live by the motto that what you see
is what you get.
