Clothes in my wardrobe.

Have you ever looked into your wardrobe and thought, 'I hate everything that is in here and I have absolutely nothing to wear so I"m going to wear these jeans and this t-shirt until they fall off me' ?
I mean, there are clothes in there, but I think I hate them all, except maybe on or two dresses that are not exactly suitable to faffing about and cleaning out the cat litter.
I really feel like getting a couple of bin bags and tossing the whole lot into them- bar some jeans, those dresses, my footwear and my sports gear-and dragging the whole useless pile to a charity shop and starting again from scratch.
I'm sick looking at them, but of course the moment I toss one thing away I'll want it, IMMEDIATELY.
Maybe I can get away with just jeans and a white t-shirt all year round. I can pretend I"m a Ralph Lauren ad and when people ask in January, 'aren't you cold?' I can toss my head back, shiver and laugh and pretend I'm a marina somewhere about to go sailing for the afternoon with a picnic hamper full of berries and smoked salmon. I might knot a pastel jumper around my shulders for really cold days.
No wonder Hugh Hefner just wear pyjamas day in day out.

Apparently in LA they are all wearing "lounging pyjamas" during the day. There must be something liberating about wearing the same stuff every day. Liz Hurley has a uniform of white skinny jeans and t-shirt when she's not doing red carpet stuff. I know how you feel. How come something which looked terrific two weeks ago suddenly looks tired and unappealing? I'm heartily sick of everything in my wardrobe - I wish we could have a proper Summer and then I'd have an excuse to go out and buy stuff.

I wonder if skinny jeans will be around much longer? I know this is a terrible thing to say but something’s should be only made in certain sizes, size 16 people can't wear skinny jeans. FMC are you a bit of a hoarder?

Not as much as I used to be, that said I've some garments that have been moved from one place to the next and worn, oh say, once.

Shebah, do you ever get something new and love it and wear it constantly, wondering what the hell you ever wore before?

Oh yes, I know how you feel. I'd chuck them all and buy new, only I can't afford it.

And no, it's not only women who do that, the Spouse Sparrow does it, too.

Shebah, I take it that these "lounging pajamas" are for the wealthy? If so, that's hilarious, because it is so very, very ghetto. Out here in my little ghetto, east of LA, we regularly take the piss out of people who have no problem going to the shops in pajamas and slippers. My daughter's school had to amend the dress code to ban wearing pajamas, slippers, and, get this, bringing blankets to school. And it's not like these are poor ghetto people that can't afford clothes, shoes, and jackets, because they're getting out of Hummers and Escalades with $3,000 rims.

How kind of your wife to even ask you. If the paramour were to have such an item I would diaspose of it on the QT and then claim ignorance.

I have a few favourites that I wear over and over - a pair of well washed cargo pants that go in and out of fashion every other few months, but such a great fit - and a very old black Joseph T shirt - it's just a t-shirt but there is something about that particular one that I love. P.S. I got so upset by Kim's comments about me being narrow minded and linear that I went out at lunchtime and bought a new pair of the softest leather wedges in palest green! Can buying shoes be considered addictive behaviour?... if so, I am a shoeaholic...mmm back to the drawing board!

I am now in a jealous pique so rambunctious I may have to go buy new shoes of my own to get over it. I bet they're only fabulous.
I spoted a pair of new season boot/shoe/flapper thingies in Nine West t'other day, and as Puddy is my witness I can feel them calling to me.

I remember reading somewhere...sometime... statistics about the fact that people generally wear only about 20% of their wardrobe... Or something like that (I'm not quite with it today)? Anyway that's certainly true for me, I wear the same few things all the time until I get some new favourites..
Working from home also has an "interesting" effect on my clothing, as I walk around as a slob most days :) But it kind of makes dressing up to go out more fun, and I find myself making more of an effort when I go out these days...

OH EVA! Welcome to my world, my jeans and t-shirt combo ar my uniform-for when I get out of my jammies.
But I"m sick to the fucking back teeth of my wardrobe and all the black clothes I have, really, how many pairs of black trousers does one woman need? Or black shirts.

Oh God, another black person - I wear black, black, black all the time!!
In fact I'm wearing a black shirt right now :)
But with a greenish kind of skirt that I just bought in an attempt to lighten up my wardrobe.
Needless to say I have bee OUT OF THE HOUSE and out of my jammies this evening ;)

I'm only thirteen and i'm having one of those moments right now. Everything looks like it belongs to a five year old not a teenager. I'm literally sitting here in my school uniform because i still don't know what the hell to wear yet. Its veeery annoying. I just want to chuck EVERYTHING away and get a whole new lovely wardrobe. Not sure I can do that with £50, mind.
