A girl really can’t have too many clothes, yet there’s definitely a point at which, in fact, she does.
Head vs heart – it’s so difficult to trim down, yet every new occasion demands a nice new outfit.
And probably shoes.
Yet I can’t get rid of *that* item – not yet, anyway – it’s so lovely, I’ll definitely want to wear it again sometime…
And, although I bought a replacement for one pair of shoes, the originals still have wear in them, and they’re so lovely and comfy…
What’s a girl to do?
I ran out of wardrobe space some time ago, and have bags stashed away which I will sort out one day when I get time to myself
And so it goes on, for me, at least!

I think a girl can’t have enough clothes. I have a lot but are constantly buying more. I can’t resist a sexy dress, skirt or top when I see it. That goes for shoes as well. I am proud to say that I have a bigger collection of clothes / shoes than my ex wife. And a bigger selection of hosiery than all my ex gf’s together. I think that so cool. I constantly begged them for wearing sexy nylons witch they rarely would. So now i wear everything my ex gf’s wouldn’t. Actually that is way better,

Looking through Ellie’s wardrobe, there’s a lot of stuff that’s either uninspiring or just doesn’t fit well, much of it hand-me-downs which need to be purged. I have to be careful though, so no ones’ feelings are hurt and keep site of the fact that Ellie is so fortunate to have a supportive family! I also need more space. Currently, Ellie’s cloths reside in several different locations. This isn’t to keep them under the radar, but it’s because my (dear) wife has totally taken over the master closet and everything else! What’s a poor girl to do?

My dressing has been going strong for over sixty five years, amd really got going when I was about fifteen years old. Between my sister and some of her friends I accumulated A very large wardrobe filling my closet and drawers to the point of breaking. Things slowed down while I was in collage and after getting married things really picked up again. We moved into our new house and I packed up all my old things from my parents home into boxes and stored them away for several years. My wife was supportive in my dressing so we purchased many things together while on our shopping trips. My wife grew up not having many new clothes so she loved to get nice new things to wear and always wanted me to also get something nice so my wardrobe grew to the point of filling my closet with dresses ect. It was about ten years into our marriage we sat down and started going through all those boxes that had been stored away. They had so many happy memories but there was no longer they would fit me, I couldn’t believe they ever fit me they were also much to small for my wife. So for the first time ever we packed them up for salvation army and sent them off for A new home. I still hate to part with anything from my closet but as my wife says you can’t hang on to them for ever, especially if there worn out or no longer fit. But on A brighter note my closet is still packed with beautiful things with A few guy things hear and there.

Anyone who has read my writings here or talked to me in chat knows my wardrobe-aka Cynthia’s Boutique aka Narnia)-cannot be held within a single closet or room. In fact it sprawls three plus rooms and has become too numerous to count exactly at this point Suffice too say that I’m fairly certain that I could go close to two years and not repeat an outfit. The last time I did count over a year ago it was over 400 dresses 100+ skirts;200 + tops 250-300 pairs of shoes and tons of camis/tanks,undies, leggings, bras etc. And though I stopped wearing them 3 years ago when I started growing my natural hair, there are over 200 wigs in two closets. And well over 500 pairs of earrings. And no- none of those #s are typos-ask the folks who have been to y house like Samaantha G or April (Pacific Princess)
I won’t buy any more wigs as they are unnecessary at this point; shoes are a rare purchase now; but I do still buy new dresses i they catch y fancy and are a good bargain-but it has to it both those criteria. Excessive? Probably yes lol. But despite my sister pointing out that I don’t even know all I have, I resist her calls to purge/cull anything. I’ve never purged so this is the culmination(so far 🙂 ) of 8-10 years of acquisitions. Will I stop buying new hings? Not likely! But I do want to get it more organized and consolidated -maybe into two rooms-IF I CAN lol.

I wish my closet(s) were bigger. I have 3 in my house, 1 in each bedroom and they are switched back and forth through the year, which gives me plenty of time to select for the donation bins downtown. Even with that much space, I would LOVE to have more. I have even moved all my coats and jackets into the hall closet, but the free space was quickly taken over.
Over time, my taste’s have definitely changed: mini skirts are vastly outnumbered by midi and maxi length now, but I do keep a few on hand; slacks and jeans are running about even now; sensible but very appealing shoes are the most numerous since my heels have gotten shorter, etc. I will not become a dottering old maid though, and I will remain as young as I can make myself look and feel while still being mostly ‘with it’.

wish my wardrobe was bigger as now only space for skirts, dresses, blouses, etc and shoes – T-shirts and pullovers are in a big suitcase, while my underwear locked up as wife have only access/seen my female wardrobe; not underwear. Ideally all my underwear should be nicely arranged in drawers….but that will apparently have to wait until she is ready as do not want to “push” the issue too fast!

As chance would have it, I was discussing wardrobe by PM with a close friend this morning; and as I told her, I actually have all the clothes I am likely to wear – but I can’t resist the siren call of Kohl’s, so…..
On the other had, if I could only find some pretty shoes in size 13W, I would shop ’til I drop.

A number of people have said “A girl can’t have too many clothes.” Well, I think I have too many clothes. However, I’ll let you be the judge.
This weekend I will have completed wearing 64 different outfits in 65 days, just over 9 WEEKS! (One day I wore a long sleeve ankle length black velvet dress that was so comfy, I wore it overnight and the next day too.) No skirt, top, or dress was worn more than once. In theory, with 2 tops and 2 skirts, there are 4 possible outfits, with 3 and 3 there are 9, etc. But I have not done any mix and match, it was one skirt and one top, and neither was worn again. There are a few exceptions. I wore the same tank tops and skorts while doing exercises. When I had to appear as male for a time during the day, I would wear women’s jeans and/or leggings, and these have been worn more than once, but for short periods. I’d often tuck the skirt into the pants, and either hide the top under a jacket or a sweatshirt (under a sweatshirt I definitely had to remove the breast forms; under a jacket I sometimes kept them in).
I still have some outfits that are more for evening wear, formal wear, or require dry cleaning, or are out of season. I am now running out of tops (although I have two more coming next week), but still have skirts that I haven’t worn. I’m also running out of memory, as in “Did I wear this before these 9 weeks, or during?” And I have a couple of maid dresses that I haven’t worn.
No, it’s neither my closet nor my wardrobe that needs to be larger. I think my willpower has to be larger, not buying anything new unless it is SUPER CUTE, an unbelievably low price, or a specialty item that I absolutely can’t resist.
Since I have many more skirts and tops than dresses, I’d have to say I have a good sense of style. Being able to match tops to skirts when you can’t repeat what you wore I think proves the point. I try to wear things that are fashionable without “being in fashion,” so that they don’t go out of style and can be worn for years. I still have and wear the skirt I wore when I went for my first makeover and outing almost 11 years ago.
I have a nice shoe collection without it being super huge. Lately I have been wearing either ballet flats or sneakers around the house, and mostly wear sneakers when going out for a walk whenever the weather is good. Sometimes I wear my pink and white Converse Chuck Taylor sneakers, other times I wear my guy sneakers, which are identical except pure black.

A great question. Thanks for the option of selecting multiple answers.
After being laid off from work about ten years ago I decided I’d dress as often as I could. So my wardrobe quickly grew larger than the closet. A friend suggested going to Lowe’s to get the hanging rails so one end of the spare bedroom became the closet.

I am unable to check any of these. Though I do have my collection of swimsuits on hangers in a closet, that is simply because I live alone and like being able to see them all at the same time when deciding which one to wear next.
Before growing up, I didn’t require any hiding places because I did not have my own that needed hiding…just whenever I could sneak in a wearing of my sister’s swimsuits. Later on, I had them all in a small box, then a large box. I still can fit them all in the large box, but I take advantage of living alone by having them hanging in a closet.

Although I’ve liked wearing adult female clothes since I was 8 or 9, I didn’t start buying my own until late 2015. I love my wardrobe that I’ve put together.
I selected that my wardrobe is in hiding, because my wife won’t accept nor approve of my CDing. I also selected that I wished my wardrobe and closet was bigger. I’m in need of casual clothes, I’m wanting to be out and about in daily public en fem more. It’s actually a good thing that my wardrobe is in hiding, I keep it in storage trunks. So when they get full, I buy another trunk; instant expandable closet.

Can any girl have enough clothes, lingerie, shoes, bling? Also, how about makeup? I love shopping en femme and seldom go without making a purchase or two. I am pretty sure I have enough lipstick to last me a lifetime, but I am also sure I will buy more when I see a super cute shade that I don’t have or one in sale!

I have to keep my wardrobe in the trunk of my car as to have to keep hidden from wife. And it does not consist of much currently. But, I am in midst of buying my dream outfit from Amazon. I have 3 items being delivered(matching shoes, hose and opera length gloves) to an Amazon dropbox. The fourth item will be a sequin evening gown and it would not fit in the dropbox. Holding off buying this item till wife goes away on a trip which she eventually will. I thought about getting a private delivery box at post office. But, when I discovered that Amazon delivers to these private boxes, I figured why bother.

I have been a very lucky girl when it comes to my wordrobe. I have bought many items on sale from my go to store, Macy’s. I have a wife and sister in law who weave both lost weight and were sending cloths to a goodwill, which I offered to take over for them. Since their clothing fit me I kept most of it. My sister in law was a cloths horse and had many high end items. I have several suits that use to be hers and many dresses. I hope to get more as she continues to downsize. Many of these items are shown in pics in my gallery. However, a girl always wants more. I continue to shop and buy. So many pretty things.

My wardrobe is fairly large but there always seems to be room for more cute items, its a large house and I still have one more closet. Some of my tastes have changed along with my progression and I seem to have a pretty good sense of style. Shoes are the one area where I am still woefully lacking.
I wouldn’t exactly call it a tree but my choice of clothing cover it fairly well when I want them to lol.

1/ I have a pretty dang good sense of style….I, me, myself, think that I have excelent style with the knowledge that a lot of others would not agree. Style is individual and long live the difference between us.
2/My tastes have definitely changed over time….Pretty obvious innit? As our bodies change is it a matter of changing taste or wearing clothes that suit us better? I am going through a chiffon revolution at the moment as the billowing light material covers most of the harm that I have inflicted on myself over the last 68 years. I have always been an advocate that there is no such thing as age appropriate clothing, if ya got it, flaunt it, just don’t wear lycra.

I imagine in the 18 months that I’ve been a Dresser that I have traveled a well trodden path. I started with on specific article of clothing. Then once the femme bug had bitten … I began to try more things, soon I had a little stash. As the feminine persona began to emerge, just naturally the stash became a wardrobe … soon it became an expanded wardrobe. Now, more recently I’ve scaled back through a verity of purges to gain control and manage my wardrobe. Currently my reduced wardrobe looks more like the closet of the Girl next door or the Plain Jane neighbor. Gone are the elegant dresses or the arsenal of stockings, straps and things … reduced to the .. Right Stuff … those articles of clothing … the Clothes that make the Woman
