When is enough too much?

So this week I went shopping with a friend who wanted to buy two new bras. After trying on what seemed like the whole shop, she eventually found the perfect pairs and all was well. It was a blistering hot day and by the time we got back to her place we were both gasping for something cold to drink. We sat under the shade in her garden and I spotted several pairs of lovely lacy bras in a variety of colours drying on the washing line. Why did she need more pairs, I asked? Her reply was that she wants her bra to match her outfit. What? Needless to say, I felt woefully inadequate with just a black bra, a white bra, and a flesh-coloured bra, in my possession, but they serve me well enough.

I counted fifteen pairs of leggings. Okay, I do yoga and attend classes regularly, but fifteen? I certainly won’t be needing any more pairs anytime soon, but then I did just see this adorable pair online…and sixteen is such a nice even number, isn’t it?

How about you? Is there anything you collect to excess?

  1. A fun blog this morning. For me it seems to be shoes. I’d do bra’s and panties if I had a better figure. Or at least I think I might. πŸ™‚

  2. I don’t think I collect clothing items, though I do have more jean shirts than I probably should. But this last one was so cute…and had a great Nashville logo on it. So I just HAD to have it. πŸ™‚

  3. LOL! I love it. I have like 4 ratty old bras that are all the same make and color. I buy new ones, but they are never comfortable so I go back to the ratty ones. My collection is boots. I am in love with boots. Even though I can only wear them a short period of time each year. Jillian

  4. For me, it’s tops and tunics. Last count I had came to 32. No wonder my wardrobe collapsed recently! πŸ™‚
