I stopped using stlyish girl for no reason. I do use Upack it all the time. Its an app on its own. I make a master list and just tweek as I need to.

Thanks for your help! I'm definitely going to investigate Upack it, and Stylish Girl as well.

Looks best if you remove the background but it isn’t necessary. Since I use screenshots from the retailer most of my background is easily removed. I can see how time consuming it can be if you are taking your own stock pictures.

Thanks for the very practical info -- that is exactly what I wanted to know, from someone who has actually used the app. So often the descriptions and reviews online don't mention particulars that I am interested in.

Please feel free to NOT respond to the following if it's just too much trouble - I totally understand you aren't a company rep! :) - but there are a couple of other aspects of the app I'm curious about:

When recording what you've worn using the calendar, is there a limit to the number of items you can include in any given daily outfit? I often have six or more individual items in a daily outfit, including things like multiple bracelets, a scarf, purse, etc. along with the usual pants, top, shoes. And can you enter outfits into the calendar for the future -- such as what you plan to wear for an upcoming event?

Have you used the packing list function on the app? Do you know if you can save packing lists -- in other words, label them for particular trips and store more than one list on the app? Or if not that, perhaps email a list to yourself in order to archive it?

Any info you can provide is very much appreciated!

I don’t log my daily outfit but I believe you can add as many items to the daily look as you want. You can add outfits for future calendar dates as well. I have used the packing list and I like it. You label each packing list and add items to the list and you can add looks to the list. And you can create multiple looks and packing lists. Example, I have a wedding coming up and I made this outfit combo and I added those items to my packing lists. I just really like how I can visually create an outfit. d91197a74282afb68c0d10da816a23ac.jpg

Thanks so much for taking the time to give me this info -- you've convinced me that Stylebook is for me! Are you sure you don't work for the company? :D

Very pretty outfit -- you'll be a hit at the wedding!

I was inspired to look for an Android app for wardrobe planning and found MyCloset. It does much of what was mentioned above. I have had fun photographing and editing my clothes to load into the app - now comes the real fun of laying out outfits for my next cruise

A trick we use at home and away is to spritz with water in a squirt bottle (Dollar Tree!). Downy makes a 'wrinkle release' spray, which is basically water with chemical scents added. I never had any luck with steaming in a bathroom, but this works every time!

Enjoy!

This is what I do, too.  My husband has a silk shirt, and I don't want to take any chances about staining it, so I always pack a small, empty spray bottle, and fill it up with water to spritz everything as it comes out of the suitcase.  We use the bottle to tame our "bed hair", too! 😁

Hi ladies. Wow it’s been a long time since I checked in. 

We did back to back TA’s this spring. I spent quite a bit of time at my daughters in Florida. After losing 30 lbs I had to buy all new bottoms for a all inclusive in Punta Cana with family. That was fun. Almost waited too late. It was hard to find Capri leggings. Finally found a bunch at Sears, a place I usually don’t go too. I’ve left all those clothes in Florida so I don’t have to do much when drive down in Jan. Then my life gets fun!! 

Ncl Jade 7day Jan 25

Ncl Bliss 7day Feb 2

and NCL Bliss March 30 15 day Canal cruise. 

DH is only going on the last one, he’ll be in Haiti during parts of the other two. 

Sure hope I work hard enough to keep the weight off through all of that. 

I’m doing well, even through Thanksgiving. Giving up soda has helped. 

 

I keep going back back and forth between cubes. I have them and use them, then I don’t use them. Can’t decide if I just like a combination of both. 

 

Hope youve all been enjoying the holidays and days and getting some great shopping it!!

I could use some help. I have a group of people cruising on the Carnival Legend Greenland TA to Southhampton. 2 days later a smaller group of us have decided to forgo airfare and return to NY via QM2. 

This is a completely new experience for me and them. So if any of you have experience with Cunnard and specifically the QM2 I have a few questions. 

I think your dining room is linked to your room location(inside, OV, Balcony or suite etc). That’s fine with me. I’ve read that there’s 3 formal nights on a 8 day? The dress requirement for that is dark suit or tux and long dress or cocktail dresses. Do you get sent out if you’re in a skirt and top?  All other nights a jacket and tie, are light pants acceptable? Or do they need to be black? And women, can we wear dressy pants and tops? Or of course dresses and skirts.

thanks for your help. It’s not till June of 2020 but everyone is of course asking questions. 

Merry Christmas.

Only Suites have separate dinning from the main Britannia Dinning room and Britannia Club.

Formal is as you described and on the other nights, for men no ties required just jacket and what they call “smart pants, any color....you will be fine in skirt and top, just think 100 years ago and you’ll be fine.

Personally  we hate the Cunard dress code in this the 20th century

but the ship is fantastic.

Sunny daygirl

you will find lots of threads on Cunard dress code on the Cunard section of CC.

however, just a few quick answers.

all Britannia rooms whether inside, balcony, etc eat in the same dining room.

Princess grill, queens grill and Britannia club rooms each have a separate dining room.

 

formal nights- although many women wear formal or cocktail dresses, quite a few wear pants with a sparkly top. Dressy skirt and top would also be Ok.

men can wear suit and tie, although most men wear tuxes.

 

other nights: dress code has eased up for men. Jacket required, tie is optional. Some men wear khaki pants. Last crossing, about 50% of men wore ties on non- formal nights.

women: dresses, nice pants/ top combo, or skirt/ dressy top.

i personally find the public rooms a bit cool, so I always bring a sweater or jacket.

 

note that if anyone doesn’t want to dress for dinner, they can eat in the buffet or order room service.

 

Hope that helps!
