I'm not sure that weakness is the right word, but I couldn't think of anything else to use.

What I mean is, when you're shopping and browsing through the racks, what is the one thing that you're always drawn to. Will you always look at black over other colours? Or stripes over other prints? Or v necks over other cuts? What is it that you have too much of in your wardrobe tongue.gif



For me, I am always drawn to things with stripes. I will nearly always stop to look at an item of clothing if it has stripes! And I also have quite a lot of stripes in my wardrobe. I'm trying really hard lately to expand into other things and almost have to physcially tear myself away from a stripe top!

Always drawn to black and greys.

My hubby hates it - seriously we were looking at my wardrobe the other day and I had one piece of clothing that I currently wear that wasnt grey, black or white.

Im making an effort to bring more colours into my wardrobe this summer blush.gif

Yes, stripes!!!!! I've got a self-imposed ban on stripes going at the moment!

I used to have a lot of blue and black but have really tried to branch out a little. I'm also not buying any more casual collared shirts with roll up sleeves for summer... I have so many because they work well for me at school, can wear them with jeans or with shorts so they cover from about Sept-March. I just love them so much but need to stop buying them!

I have banned myself from buying any more long cardigans. It started after my first pregnancy and I haven't been able to break the habit ph34r.gif . My addiction has been fed by the sale racks at Witchery and those damn vouchers they keep emailing me.

My other fashion issue is trying to emulate other people's style even though it is clearly unsuitable for my shape, lifestyle, colouring etc. For example, I recently ordered the Issa dress (in black) that Kate Middleton wore for her engagement announcement. It hasn't arrived yet, but I know I am going to be disappointed. I am not 5'9 and pin thin so why do I think that dress will suit me rolleyes.gif . In the same theme, when we were on holidays I purchased some gorgeous silk scarves. Of course, silk scarves are perfect items to wear when you have a baby and a preschooler smearing stuff all over you 24/7. I just saw so many glam French women with their artfully tied scarves I wanted to join the club too!

You might be surprised. My mother has that dress but in the same blue. And she is certainly not 5'9 (not at the time really thin) and it looked great on her.

Handbags.. I'm continually drawn to them. I've just asked my brother to buy me yet another French bag.

Oh, and I have a thing for black clothing as well smile.gif
