It won't be warm enough for the beach most likely although I suspect this 8-day trip is just going to make me want to go back for a month!

i went absolutely bananananananas planning my wardrobe for a recent trip! i think i brought just enough clothing, but it was enough that our 1 bag had to be checked. long story short, we wound up missing our flight and i spent about 40 min in a total breakdown blaming myself for bringing too many clothes. i came to my senses and it did not discolor memories of my trip and all that was good about it BUT i wish i hadn't wigged so hard about it.

anyway these posts remind me that obsessive and extensive travel costuming is normal and the only person blaming me for caring too much about my clothes was ME :(

it's all ok now though

What's a capsule wardrobe? I'm guessing like "small" but as someone who packs one pair of trousers and three shirts for a week's holiday I don't know why you need an extra term for just not having much?

My other guess is just dressing like the band Capsule, which in my head is much better:

I can see it being fun - I think my "non-fashiony person" status leads to people thinking I'm sneery about it all, but clothing can be great for creative expression and I'm never going to shit on that.

I guess I do get a bit sneery at fashion as a set of rules, especially one that constantly changes in order to maximise profit, but that's a more understandable reaction, right?

Yeah of course! :D I was getting really caught up in a very homogeneous set of "looks" that's portrayed on other people's soc meedz and trying to follow Porto #streetstyle or w/e.

emil.y, this is sort of a weird long shot but have you checked out the clothes at Uoozee.com? I like their kooky comfy aesthetic.

xp to io: I had not, just had a little browse and there's some good brown jumper style stuff in there, for sure. Some of the other stuff reminds me a little of dark mori style (I confess I only read about this on twitter the other day, I'm pretty into it but think I'd look more 'hobo' in it than cool and witchy).

apparently theres a variation of mori girl fashion called dark mori and it literally what an actual witch would wear pic.twitter.com/2Z5utAXQCX

Picking and packing clothing for travel is extremely high stress, especially if the weather will be hot. Which is why I prefer traveling to cold places.

just1n3, Monday, 8 April 2019 21:29 (two weeks ago) Permalink

digging the dark mori witch look in moderation. i need to go in and out of dark witch mode.

there aren't many non-self-destructive things i could do that would bring me as much real satisfaction as wearing what i want when i want.

speaking of dresses, the dress i mentioned above is sort of an autumn-colors forest maiden halter dress (i wore a crop top under it so it was more like a dirndl?) with lace accents, a tulle underskirt, a corset back, and a giant bow that ties in the back. it's not something i could imagine anyone else i know wearing but it was there waiting for me! perfect condition, could be handmade? wearing it on a trip was SO delightful and i enjoyed it immensely. i didn't even feel unchill in my crazy dress because it was totally comfortable. even thinking about it makes me mildly happy.

agree about packing being stressful. i am always cold and have a pathological need to feel fly on vacation.

weird woman in a bar (La Lechera), Monday, 8 April 2019 21:39 (two weeks ago) Permalink

I had never heard of this dark mori but I think I like it. Cozy goth otm.

I also sometimes get fb adverts for an insanely expensive line of clothing by a company called Demobaza. I think I can accurately categorize their style as "Burning Man" but I also kind of love it for the post-apocalyptic sci-fi martial arts warrior urchin vibe.

I was more thorough looking through the meringue dresses. I kind of really want Noisette for regular life.

I take approximately the same things with me everywhere I travel. No jeans (too heavy), one super casual outfit for lounging or to get destroyed, the rest versatile enough for almost anything else you would want to do. I can manage about a month in one carry-on and that's even with me bringing a small amount of kitchen stuff.

xpost inorbit being completely detached from talking about work or referencing ever having to be at work makes people think you do covert things or have a large trust fund. I get both of those even at the places I am actively working at. Maybe I am just super shady.

I put effort into how I look - hair, makeup, clothes, jewelry- like 6 x a year at home, but will dress up every single day I’m on vacation

just1n3, Monday, 8 April 2019 22:36 (two weeks ago) Permalink

I’m in camp Yerac. The thought of checking a bag freaks me out. If I don’t wear/use every single thing I’ve oacked multiple times, I feel I’ve done something very wrong. I’m a proponent of packing for 1 week even if you are gone for 3. I will do laundry in a bath tub if it cones to that. I have buy socks if I run out before laundry gets done. I have worn my spouse’s underwear when I have run out of my own. Shoe selection is my biggest issue as I try to pack only one pair in addition to those I wear on the plane.

mom tossed in kimchee (quincie), Monday, 8 April 2019 22:44 (two weeks ago) Permalink

It should be said that I don’t travel much, the opportunity to do so makes me want to dress up MORE.

Everyone’s different. We don’t need to do it one way or the other or divide into teams. I know that wearing dumb clothes makes me less appealing as a travel partner. That’s part of why I felt bad at the airport.

weird woman in a bar (La Lechera), Monday, 8 April 2019 22:52 (two weeks ago) Permalink

I’d love to have the kind of travel experience that makes me care less about what I’m wearing. Instead I’m stuck in high school kid mode wearing my ruffled shirt on the school trip to Washington DC.

I love when people look fab from a suitcase! I keep it simple because I like the ease, and also the challenge. I alsobiy things on the road to liven things up, for example the like 5 loose cotton dresses I picked ip in India which have replaced my sarong/tee look of prior packs.

Yeah, I have to keep it simple because I hate the whole process of flying so much. I do tend to dress a bit nicer when away but everything I have is super comfortable but has one weird styley thing about it that I wouldn't feel underdressed if I am out from morning to dinnertime.

if we did, I would be on your team. I am the "maybe this will come in handy" person when I go places. But even on the occasions where I don't use the extra pair of underwear, or socks, or warm layer, or tank top, or plastic bag to put things that are wet and kinda gross, or fingernail clippers, or spare phone charger cable/plug, or multi-tool (off-brand leatherman basically) ... I feel better having the "maybe this will come in handy" items. otoh the only shoes I travel with are the ones I wear on the road/plane, and a pair of like, bathroom/bedroom slippers.

sarahell, Tuesday, 9 April 2019 08:19 (two weeks ago) Permalink

Haha I love that you'd take a multi-tool, I might borrow that idea.

I also generally pack for every hypothetical situation ("maybe we'll go to the opera!") and don't feel bad about it. That said, it is a blessed relief to travel to a warm country and pack only silks and light cottons so that ten dresses can squeeze into a backpack-sized space. This talk is very much making me want to book another holiday - flights to...Bergerac are only £20!

alrakis morissette (tangenttangent), Tuesday, 9 April 2019 08:26 (two weeks ago) Permalink

I love you so much and feel exactly like this almost always. I think the thing that changed for me this trip is that I can't even imagine that where we're going is real and I don't rly know what "normal" ppl wear there so all I can do is style myself how I would ideally want and not have to think about every nuance of how formal something is or if it's right for this setting or that activity. Which I normally do. Because I complicate everything. Anyway, other places might as well be THE MOON to me is what I'm saying. I can't wait to get off the plane in Madrid and hear Spanish.

I pack nice stuff then wear the same two things pretty much. since having kids i dress way more for comfort than I used to, also I never have a chance to shop except for essentials and none of my old clothes fit any more, whereas previously I'd kind of built up a nice collection over the years of stuff that might loosely be described as a 'style'.

my oh once managed to pack without including any tshirts/ tops for the whole week. luckily asos do next day delivery...

I’m on a long weekend vacation in LA, staying at the Waldorf in Beverly Hills, with a suitcase full of clothes from old navy. The in-room hair dryer is a fucking *Dyson*. Every single guest I’ve seen here looks insanely rich. Also skinny. I’ve been working the last year to be ok with how big my body is but being surrounded by precisely manicured perfection sure makes it tough.

This room is extremely fancy and lovely, there’s a deck with a great view, I had a delicious Italian dinner, and I started watching Russian Doll which is extremely aesthetically pleasing to me, so I’m gonna focus on that.

So. I want 1) to get stinking drunk, and 2) I want to get laid. Difficulty: Life has made a point of telling me everything I want is WRONG.

There are actually two men showing interest in me, but one goes to the gym at my workplace, and the other lives across the street from me. (Also, extrapolating from the way he treats his dog, he is a fundamentally decent person and I don't want to do him wrong.) I don't even expect useful responses, I just wanted to say something to SOMEONE.
