I think I am the only person in the US--possibly in the world--who still "dresses" to travel. One must give the masses something to aspire to.
I was just telling someone how, when they started making you remove your shoes at airports, I was wearing a pair of gorgeous leopard (natch) shoes. The security guard pointed at them and I said, "Thank you!"
I'm really impressed. She traveled with trunk that was just for MadDog.
I bet Marlene INVENTED Mad Dog!
Oh, I still dress for travelling because you never get a second chance to make a first impression! Maybe not quite to Marlene's level, however!
Quite right, Mavis. My mother always told me, "How you look is more important than how you feel. Only YOU know how you feel, but EVERYONE knows how you look."
I have always said, "It's an OUTSIDE job."
Eve: Count me in too! I don't do sweatsuits, sneakers, no makeup, and hair not done. Call me an 'old lady' but we didn't travel like slobs when I was growing up and I don't now.
Donna: Gotta laugh and I gotta love you - I also travel with my leopard shoes (flats). Easy to take off. Easy to slip on. Pick up the luggage and walk it out - in style.
Dusty, besides - you NEVER know who you are going to see in the airport, or meet on the airplane. I can barely wear jeans without feeling like a slob. I don't understand people who dress like slobs. It's like when the faux-Jayne says in The audio bible, I mean, "The Wild Wild World of Jayne Mansfield," "A man would rather have a well groomed, ordinary girl over a pretty girl who dresses sloppy."
PS. Travel essentials: cashmere pashmina (keeps you warm and looks fabulous) and ballet flats.
I don't dress to impress when traveling. Not that I'm a total slob. If it's someplace important like LA, Palm Springs, or Las Vegas I'll have mom do up my hair and dress in my casual but dressy clothing - but I always have comfortable shoes on. (Especially if mom's coming with as I'm in charge of pushing her wheelchair. Walking the Fashion District in LA with all it's cracked sidewalks while pushing a wheelchair in heels is just not practical.) And I rarely go without makeup.However, the more I read this blog the more I wish I could be made over by you all because while I long for the glamour, I can be a total slob and 99% of the time I don't know what I'm doing. (The 1% is the fact I know I look damn good in purple.)As for baggage - I found an old Samsonite at the Salvation Army in near-perfect condiction! EEEE! I LOOOOOOOOOOVVVVVVVVVEEEEEE SAMSONITE!!!!!!!!!!!! Those clothe things suck!
You're more than welcome to some of my baggage.Oh, you meant suitcases.
