Help ! HOC Style day - how much to take?!

Evening all, this might sound a bit of a stupid question, and is almost certainly a first world Friday night problem smile
I've got my HOC style day tomorrow and have gone through my wardrobe as advised...
I have three holdalls of clothes to take not including accessories. Am I going too far and planning on taking too much?
I'd like someone objective to go through everything I have a la trinny and susannah (sp?) - is this what will happen or will I be laughed at?
It's just me plus another client for the day if that helps.

When I had my style day I took a bulging suit carrier and a small bag of shoes. I don't know if it's the particular consultant, but I tried on very few of them, just held up the others for a comment. It was the last thing of the day and I wondered if she was going to miss it out TBH. The other lady didn't bring anything. You could always take them in and then, depending on what you've found out, just pick out questionable items.

For example I had one dress which I'd never worn, and the stylist just took one look and said "That print is much too mumsy, it's not you at all". Didn't need to see it on.

There won't be any laughing at, don't worry.

Thanks Raising, I'll take them all just in case. There's a fair few items in there that fit yet don't 'feel' right so I'll start with those and go from there.

I'm a bit giddy with excitement, I hope it's as good as the colour day grin

That would be coincidence travel but my consultant is a self confessed internet-phobe and we're up north

Interesting what you say about only needing about 6 or so pieces, does that mean you can usually tell someone style type when you meet someone for the first time?

I popped in to my consultant's house to pick up some pieces of clothing she had for me and I made a comment about a certain style type and she said "no I don't think so". maybe she has an inkling too...
