To be honest if that is accurate. I imagine it is more on every count. I have 8 pairs of J Brands, 5 pairs of Goldsign, a couple of Paige, couple of C/E, CoH then various high street, so 20 prob v conservative estimate. Only wear about 10 pairs regularly though.

I have a separate shoe wardrobe. There are A LOT of shoes in there - they seem to be the item I acquire most frequently.

i dont own many pairs of jeans,i think maybe 12,and that is less than many of you,i own many outerwear though,more than what i actually need,and shoes way too many shoes.

OneLittleLady Fri 02-Aug-13 22:52:27

I don't think I have that many clothes really, one small wardrobe and a chest of drawers. I do have shoe boxes under the bed though, I think there's seven pairs of Irregular choice and Poetic License shoes hiding under there blush

I wish Ihad more clothes but the budget just doesn't stretch to allow me to shop the way i want to. I have champagne tastes and a council pop (water for those who don't know wink ) budget sad

QueenCadbury Fri 02-Aug-13 22:54:27

shop any good?

santamarianovella Fri 02-Aug-13 22:56:25

amber i never feel bad or regret buying shoes,

AmberNectarine Fri 02-Aug-13 23:01:22

Me neither santa, and I'll never get too fat for them!

santamarianovella Fri 02-Aug-13 23:05:08

just when your preggers wink ,my feet swell to the point flip flops was my only choice .

OneLittleLady Sat 03-Aug-13 02:26:00

Nooooooooooooooo, I can't sleep and pinterest is down sad

I was just getting into sorting my boards properly and now it won't find anything for me [weep]

Drywhiteplease Sat 03-Aug-13 07:33:37

I have 12 pairs of jeans (not counting the ones in the graveyard wardrobe) but 17 little fitted cardigans shock and a lot of dresses.

novice how do you remember what you have got? Do you have a system? OCD making me twitchy

QueenCadbury Sat 03-Aug-13 07:57:15

dry I didn't realise you we're a cardigan lover too.

I think I'm going to focus on accessories this AW. My navy and black belts are canvas so I'm going to get leather ones to look smarter. I also want a bright hat. And coloured handbags. Not much then grin

noviceoftheday Sat 03-Aug-13 08:00:32

17 fitted cardigans!!shockwink

Dry, the system which I think semi works is that everything goes together. Eg I have 2 underwear draws, one for normal day to day, one for gym and time of the month. I also have a pj draw and a gym wear. The wardrobes are custom built so hard to describe but divided into sections. I have one section for suits, one for casual jackets, one for work dresses, one for blouses, one for formal occasion dresses, one for casual dresses, one for coats and jackets. One for knit wear. Etc etc.

Drywhiteplease Sat 03-Aug-13 08:38:43

My heart rate is back to normal now Novice thanks smile
QueenC I know, didn't realise I had such a thing for them. Perfect for my work and flat chest! I have spent on long line grand dad style cardigans fron LK Bennet and Boden but they look bloody terrible on me, i don't so slouchy very well. Always go back to little fitted cardis.

shopafrolic Sat 03-Aug-13 08:42:07

Novice your underwear collection from memory is not normal day to day! Is there not a section for super sexy and fabulous? Just like I imagine Mig has a section of off the shoulder tops? wink
Morning Voguettes!

noviceoftheday Sat 03-Aug-13 08:42:54

grin dry! Those grandad cardigans always lovely on the Alexa Chungs of this world. To be avoided like the plague if you're 5'2 with boobs.

noviceoftheday Sat 03-Aug-13 08:51:18

Morning Shop! Yes normal day to day underwear is sexy. smile I like matching sets which i know some people think is weird! And I tend to match to my clothes which even I know is weirdblush

shopafrolic Sat 03-Aug-13 08:55:42

I used to love matching sets Novice - but post DS my size has changed so they all sit there, in the drawer, smirking at me while I put on my t-shirt bra and Foxy pants! (which are great by the way!)

QueenCadbury Sat 03-Aug-13 09:01:29

dry I can't do long cardis either. They make my bum look huge.

novice my dh would think all his Christmas' had come at once if I wore matching underwear each day. I do make sure that the colours match but it's either black, white or nude (which he hates!). From 3 dc and bf my boobs only have any shape in tshirt bras. Have never really found a sexy bra to make the boobs look sexy too iyswim.

noviceoftheday Sat 03-Aug-13 09:10:21

I have been very very lucky. I went back to exactly the same size both times. Great because my size, 28E is a right bugger to find. I would have been well jacked off if they were smirking at me!

So, I am waiting for dh to call Amex and get my card unfrozen. I had a session on iTunes yesterday. We have music that is newer than 5 years old! Unfortunately I bought so many things in separate transactions that it looked suspicious. He seems to be taking his time....hmm

OneLittleLady Sat 03-Aug-13 09:17:12

Oh dear, I have been up all night, haven't slept a wink. I think it's the painkillers keeping me awake, silly arm wasn't playing ball yesterday.

I did get a good go on pinterest though, when it was finally working and have found loads of present inspiration for DP. Think I'm going to sort through my clothes today and then create a pin board of things I actually need, like a visual list so to speak

noviceoftheday Sat 03-Aug-13 09:25:17

Poor you One. Try and take it easy today. Dc2 has been unwell all week which meant virtually no sleep for 3 nights. I have been exhausted.

QueenC, after so many years, dh has actually come to expect matching underwear - i saw a bra once that I liked, didn't come with the matching underwear in my use but liked the bra so bought it anyway. cheeky dh saw it and looked all disappointed.hmm Bloody cheek!

McNally Sat 03-Aug-13 10:23:38

Morning! brew to those with sleepless nights!

Dry I live in London but am Yorkshire born and bred so fully acclimatised! I'm in North Yorkshire. No time for shopping while I'm here sadly as some great boutiques in my nearest town (and fat rascals wink ).

Good Yorkshire weather means I get to wear my Outnet sale cobalt cashmere sweater though! Love it. Great colour and lovely feel.

Never wear matching underwear sets. Like nude coloured bras for practicality but cannot bear to wear nude knickers!

Drywhiteplease Sat 03-Aug-13 10:38:34

McNally....I think we are very close......can't beat a fat rascal.
Off to in law family do.....may need a drink to get through. My BIL and I always feel like naughty school children at these events.

novice long cardis are bad if you're 5.3 with no boobs...look like an urchin!!

MrsRadicchio Sat 03-Aug-13 10:55:23

Hello everyone! Just making my presence known on Vol 17. Also going through a bit of a sleep deprived stage here.

Plumo have 15% extra off on their sale section - code 15EXTRA

For fun I decided to see if I could pick some items for the voguers - apologies for not picking everyone but the sale section is limited so didn't find something for all.





sleep on holiday

sleep on a night out!

QueenC - an addition to your jumper collection, probably not in your colours

Novice - probably not figure fitting enough for your style but I think you could rock the bright colours



the shorts for Foxy


Shop / Marsha I may be about on 24th - I will pm.

Will catch up properly soon.

Most of my wardrobe is on pin - I have far too much of most things.

DH is buzzing around annoyingly, making rude comments about my internet usage so I better go hmm

OneLittleLady Sat 03-Aug-13 12:03:01

I love my pick MrsR definitely one of the looks I try to aim for smile

shopafrolic Sat 03-Aug-13 12:56:01

Novice that happened to me on iTunes too - v frustrating.
Just back from the zoo but this time DH was in tow too - much more fun.
An early dinner out with DH and DS this evening at a local pasta place.
MrsR glad you found us and hope you can make the 24th. A lower key event than the last one! Will look at links now......
