My best friend wears dresses, heels, and bold makeup every day. She always looks fabulous, but I asked her why she'll spend 2 or 3 hours getting ready for a lecture or meeting me for coffee. Her response was that you never know where you'll pick up a man, so you always have to look your best. This comes from a girl who has had at least one guy ask her for her number or date every day since I've met her, so her logic makes sense.
I dress more situationally. I dress up like her when I'm going out to dinner, but to class I'll wear jeans and a cute blouse, or sweat pants and a tank top if I'm only running to the grocery store or laundromat. Though I've had a boyfriend longer than I've had good taste in clothes, so perhaps my logic applies more to taken girls than single girls.
Feel free to state your opinions regarding how you dress personally and what you expect from other girls, etc.

It makes sense what both of you are doing. Though there are girls who has a boyfriend already but still dress to impress, even if the boyfriend is not there. Though I guess its just in case the girl bumps into him again, but I find its enough for the girl to wear situationally, like what your doing.
And anon is right, people have different style of dressing no matter where they are. It suits their appearance and personality.
I find if I get up and go (wearing just t shirt and jeans), I get less notice than if I "dress" properly.
btw... I normally get up and go to lectures and routine stuff... like what your doing.
