is this wrong?

One? grin

I own 4, but hey, they go with everything and there's always something slightly different with each pair wink !!
I think if you get to 12 then it's time to reassess your wardrobe!

also have 6 black t shirts with varying sleeve length and neck lies.

DorrisMcWhirter Fri 08-Aug-08 16:17:21

Ahh, but the black t shirt is such a staple that you really need one for each day of the week. So, nip out and buy another one of those grin

will I need anything else do you think?

DorrisMcWhirter Fri 08-Aug-08 16:19:34

Where are you going? For how long?
Normally:
1 skirt
Throw over shirt
1 day / evening dress
scarves / necklaces to dress stuff up
Shorts
???

I'm like this with jeans. I am addicted to buying them , even though I hardly wear all the ones I've got.

Ahh Scotland, so jeans; t shirts of varying colours; cardie / cover up type things; black crops wink; black skirt; waterproof coat; sandals; trainers; walking boots or wellies.
Enjoy!

nor do I cod. Am a bit hmm about 7 pairs but each to their own. I have rather a lot of pairs of flip flops.

NigellaTheOriginal Fri 08-Aug-08 17:29:40

I was a bit hmm too. must check wardrobe before shopping

One. grin

Cropped trousers are not a good look on me.

Stargazing Fri 08-Aug-08 17:36:44

gosh, I don't have any. I don't actually own anything in linen.

I have lots of dresses though, that's my weakness.

but cooler when it is hot an you are too lardy to bare much flesh. and am quite tallish.

I love cropped trousers - I live in them in the summer!

Cropped trousers are great but I don't have any black ones. But if I was off to Scotland I'd be in my walking trousers (I'm a very sad persongrin)

What size are you, OP? Do you want to offer any FFP?

NigellaTheOriginal Fri 08-Aug-08 18:10:18

v large. and will be needing them all (sorry selfish)also won't be around for pickup

noddyholder Fri 08-Aug-08 18:23:12

i don't believe you cod.

Stargazing Fri 08-Aug-08 18:25:25

I don't like cropped trousers, sorry. Think they cut you off in the wrong place, make your legs look shorter and stumpier. Even when you are tall and willowy. And who can lay claim to that title? Not many of us envy
