    I adore this tunic:

    Chartreuse is one of my favorite colors; I always pick it up when I see it at the thrifts.

    In my real life, I wear lots of solid colors; I only own a few prints. I make up for it when I quilt, and in the wardrobe in my head.

    I was Little Ms Talbot's for so many years. I was recently looking at one of their catalogs and saying "no more Charming Cardis for me again, ever!" Now I might occasionally pick up a t-shirt or something from them. I got some cute casual stuff for good prices at their outlet store in Niagara last September.
    I am now all about the LL Bean Vista Camp Pants, and now they have a somewhat more polished version with slimmer legs and without the cargo pockets - perfect for wakes and weddings! I am hoping that these and jeans will carry me through much of the rest of my life. On top I wear mostly hoodies and t-shirts, some cuter and more fashionable than others. (Yes, I have what I consider to be my "dress hoodies.")

    As far as the wardrobe for my fantasy life, I like the long "hippie" dresses from places like Mexicali Blues or Soft Surroundings. I actually have this dress from SS in more of a turquoise color:

    I tend not to wear this stuff out in public very often; it's more for a hot summer evening in the gazebo with a glass of wine or two. In fact, I've noticed that many of the pictures in the SS catalogs feature women with glasses of wine in their hands. I am definitely in their target demographic! Unfortunately, a lot of their stuff runs kind of big for me. Although maybe that is just as well; I seem to be doing a better job of buying my clothes for my real life instead of my fantasy life and I think that's a good thing.

    What a fun thread! I have no pictures to post but my fantasy wardrobe is to have the body I used to have and dress like Ali McGraw in Goodbye, columbus, with sleeveless shirt and bermuda shorts and sneakers.

    Rosa, I actually stopped in Mexicali Blues in October and bought a table cloth. I was so excited to finally get there.

    In my fantasy world, I'd be a copy of Jean Seberg in Breathless.

    I think that is the Auntie Mame effect, to begin to wear colorful tunics. I am going in the other direction in my fantasy dress.

    Easy care athleisure sounds about right for me with colours red, blue, white and pink/rose preferred.

    Gray has become my favorite color for clothing.

    In real life I wear dark jeans or slacks and t-shirts or turtlenecks (usually) or shirts (when I run out of everything else) in black, dark blue, gray or white colour.

    In my fantasy life I would wear long skirts or dresses but every time I buy one reality is quick to remind me that those are just absolutely not practical for my everyday life.

    I have also learned that all of the colours, prints and patterns I like on other women's clothes should remain on someone else's clothes. It's ok to admire that from a distance and accept that it's not for me at all. Somehow every time I put on something colourful I don't feel comfortable with the image I see in the mirror no matter how many compliments I get from other people.

    Not the Auntie Mame effect here--I've always admired Boho wear. It's more like the ego/alter ego effect. My outer self doesn't quite match my inner self. Also, it isn't really riotous colors, it's more the length and layering.
