Stock Take

Posted on

Dear Reader,

Following yesterday’s mad shop I decided I probably ought to do a bit of a stock take of my wardrobe. Even I am slightly surprised by the scale of my clothes collection. Having gone through everything I have decided that I really need a ban for the next year on buying anything other than underwear and tights. (Swishing doesn’t count!!)

To prove my point I can report that I have:

48 dresses (27 casual 21 work)
24 skirts (9 casual 15 work)
12 pairs of jeans
6 pairs of trousers (all work)
2 pairs of leggings
6 pairs of shorts

3 fleeces
5 cardigans
5 jumpers
8 jackets
3 waistcoats
2 tank tops
16 shirts
12 plain long sleeve tops
15 plain vest tops
7 plain t-shirts
21 tops
1 football shirt

Even I think it is a little excessive!! The ban will include footwear because I can’t see that I will need anything other than a new pair of running trainers. I reckon there is a fair chance I could wear a different outfit every day for the year of no buying…. not sure if it’s a challenge too far though?

Bit of a mad shopping spree

Unexpectedly had a day of no plans so decided to take myself off to Basingstoke for some retail therapy. I love Basingstoke for shopping and seem to have come away with quite a haul….
