I liked dressing up, in the formal event sense of dressing up. I like dressing casually. Business casual, however, sucks. The worst clothing choices on the planet.

Chuckling because I never thought someone with the profile name veuvegirl would comment on expense. I don't believe it's more expensive to dress up - that depends on where you shop. There are a lot of casual clothes that cost a fortune

p.s.- I love Veuve too.

No I miss dressing up to. I went to Ruths Chris for NYE one year for our anniversary and I was in a stunning $400 floor length dress. Others were in shorts and very casual. I couldn't believe it...

I keep telling my ex I need a dress up night to hit a high end restaurant so I can wear something sexy but am getting nothing

Maybe it's a California thing, but nearly everyone wears flip flops or goes barefoot nearly year round.

On the other hand, I LOVE vintage-ish dresses and when I go out it's something like this:

Erin Wiggle Dress in Black Stretch Bengaline from Pinup Couture | Pinup Girl Clothing

with my hair very done up and a full face of makeup. So, just because I don't dress up every day doesn't mean I sit around in jeans all the time

Love the dress!!

Just got back from Walmart. The "woman" ahead of me was disgusting. She was wearing jeans at least two sizes too small and a very tight top. What was disgusting was she was eating the Walmart Deli fried chicken in the check out line. She even had a leg in her mouth as she paid the cashier and then had to wipe the grease off her hand to accept three change and receipt. Cashier wasnt too thrilled either.

I am a 26 year old male who recently got into mens fashion and I wish I could dress up more often. I work in the tech industry, in a very casual work setting, and will dress business casual usually. However, every week I have one day where I go all out with a blazer, dress shirt w/french cuffs, wool trousers, etc. It feels so good to dress up. I wish I could dress up more frequently, but my work setting isn't too amenable to that.

Love it! And I know the feeling.
