I only buy things to replace items that are worn out, so I have no favourites.

Hmm, overall was it an expensive business?

We have one of those shops... I don't think I've ever been in it. Have I?

I think it's a bit easier for girls to buy work-ware which is also useful for wearing outside of work.
I just wear the same things in the evenings except with converse and pretend I'm in a haircut indie band but without the haircut.
the trouble with personalities, they're too wrapped up in style
it's too personal; they're in love with their own guile

i think in times like these when you find yourself doubting astrid's fashion situation, ask yourself who is the moderator of the glamorak forum. yeah, that's right.

i never realized how many pairs of shoes i had. it's atrocious. i would have thought 15, maybe 20 tops. i didn't actually count but i'd say i just donated about 20 pairs of shoes. and i threw out maybe 10 because they were old and disgusting. and my favorite pairs of shoes, my navy blue converses with no shoelaces are pretty much done and i really want to replace them. but how can i justify another pair? oh the acute misery of it all.

cheap shoes are sort of like cheap books. when you see ones you like there's just no way to justify not buying them. not that i've ever tried really hard.

I used to collect shoes like they were going out of style. Then I hit 32-33 and my feet started, like, hurting. It happens people--be prepared. So now I actually have to wear...erm...supportive shoes. Ones with arches and old fart requirements like that. Fortunately there are cool but well-built shoes; unfortunately they're almost always expensive. Buh-bye shoe amassing.

What do I gravitate towards now? Dresses and skirts. Seeking the ones that go in at the right bits and out at the bad bits is my new mission in life.

I was clearing out my wardrobe yesterday and I had about 33 pairs of shoes. I've donated one pair to charity and thrown four out. I also have about 22 dresses....but I didn't get rid of any. I dread to think how many tops I own. I don't know whether to be proud or ashamed.
Just be nice to me.

Oh I have a LOT of stuff too. Some are just waiting for great parties, some saw great parties but I don't want to get rid of them anyway, and some are things I wear all the time.

I've bought 4 t-shirts, a scarf, a pair of shoes (mind you, winter ones i need to leave here anyway) and some otehr stuff while I have been here. Ah yes, FIVE pair of Pilgrim earrings since I got to Stockholm. Ahem.

When it comes to non-Glamorak items, I think my worst vices are DVDs (ESPECIALLY The Complete Series box sets) and notebooks.

For me it was so hard to decide between shoes and bags in the poll. But in the end, I think I am even more addicted to buying bags then shoes. With shoes it is more like that: I have very big feet and if I find a pair that fits me I just HAVE to buy it, just in case I will never find one again that fits me. Makes sense, doesn't it? It's just natural! So this is how I have tons and tons of pairs of shoes. I just use my feet size (42) as an excuse.
While with bags, I don't really have an excuse.
Also, I have a feeling that I am really getting into the dresses as well. I have bought a lot of dresses recently and haven't even worn half of them. So that is definitely a sign...
