9. Are there any clothing (or related) items that you have in multiple? Why do you think you keep buying this thing?

If I buy something that fits well I will always buy it in multiple, because I have a disproportionately small waist and finding something that fits well is a blessing.

I can only think of my underwear. I have several identical pants - same Colour, same cut.

I have one dress that I have twice in a different print because the dress fits me perfectly and it's by my favourite local maker and it makes me feel amazing so now I can wear it both in black and green gingham depending on how I feel.

I have the same 'crop' top in 3 different colurs and if it were still in stock I would buy more colours because I just love the way they look, fit and feel.

I have multiple long-sleeved slightly ribbed jersey tops from River Island. They are incredibly soft and fantastic for layering. I wear them so much throughout the year that they get worn through fairly quickly, which is why I have back-ups. They're also pretty affordable and come in some nice basic colours.

mod o doc cotton long sleeve tees. own about 25. wear one almost every day


No, but I wish I did when things wear out. I have a lot of certain things, like sweaters.

Yes i cant live without skirts of a certain look and length. I cant get to many of them lol.

I keep buying overalls because I hope that I'll look less like a farmer one day.

black leather coats. I feel like I havent found the right one.. I keep trying. They are always second hand and oversize and from the 90s.

YES haha! I have reverted back to my inner childhood girl and I have a handful of white Hanes bikini undies and a handful of black Amazon bikini undies, in other words granny panties but I feel so comfortable and so beautiful in them. I feel natural and free and simple. I seem to feel in a way like Cameron Diaz in Charles Angels when she is dancing to music in her boy undies. I am learning to own up to how I feel beautiful and not how the pressure from "society" (goodness I hate that word) makes me feel like I should feel beautiful aka undies made from lace and some weird a** materials. Cotton granny panties all the way baby.

Jeans. Black, blue, faded, ripped, tomboy cut. Its ridiculous. I keep buying because I feel like each piece tells a different story when paired with another piece.

I have two pairs each of two styles of sandal and my favorite boot. I love them and they suit me and my crotchety feet, so I'll continue to turn to them.

I have many jumpsuits. I love the feel—it’s all of the best parts of a dress without the drawbacks. I can spread my legs as wide as I like, and ride a bike, and so many other things. I also own what feels like hundreds of jumpers or sweaters, whatever you like to call them. I’ll go through phases of which I enjoy wearing the most. I buy so many just because of how absolutely comfy they are.

probably comftable

Patterned dresses. Because dresses make an outfit and patterns are endless.

Girlfriend jeans from Gap. Can’t have enough but really can’t not wear the same pair every day of the week.
Also, when H&M has the purple, yellow, maroon, navy, green stripe socks. Can’t get over how they don’t still sell them.

I have multiples of almost every clothing item I own. I'm not sure why.

I have ten pairs of underwear, and I think we should all be jolly grateful that I do.

Straight white jeans. I have five pairs. They fit well and they fit with everything. In the summer I wear wide white linen trousers. I combine my white trousers with shirts, tunics, blazers and dresses. I look different every day - except for the white jeans. It my signature thing. For a couple of years I tried to alternate with other trousers, but then I remembered that I once had a colleague (male) who would only wear white, top and bottom. And that was fine. It was a bit weird of course, a guy dressed in white, but everybody was fine with it and he was actually respected - he was the chair of a board. So I thought: no more concessions to white trousers. To my surprise, I only got nice reactions. A (female) friend who recently picked me up at night in a dark and big city said lovingly: I recognised you by your jeans.

jeans- I feel comfortable in them...maybe too comfortable because I know they're not appropriate for every occasion

I don't buy anything in multiples; I like everything in my closet to be unique and have a unique purpose for being there.


Yes, I do. I used to buy items which are similar in design but different in color.

Blue jeans!! Hippie tops, Birkenstocks, Toms shoes, Clogs; unique satchels preferably handmade in Nepal; tie dye, only floor-length dresses & long skirts. I buy these things as I am "stuck in 1969" & don't plan to change a thing about my attire as this free-form style IS ME! I detest flip-flops!

Not at this time.

Leggings, I buy lots of them because they tend to rip easily, no matter what brand I get.
Also, highlight because I keep finding ones that are gorgeous and I can't not buy them.
Finally, foundation, because I can't seem to find my perfect shade.

sports wear...
i have my cupboard filled with sports wear as that is what i like to wear the most.

i stopped buying clothes.

I have lots of pairs of the same Urban Outfitters trousers but in different colours haha - purely because they fit perfect and it's such a rare thing for me to find comfortable trousers which fit well. Same with Zara's stripey t-shirts!


i have about 4 plain black t-shirts, 3 plain white t-shirts and 3 plain grey t-shirts, that are all exactly the same style. i buy them because it means that i can put them with practically everything and i won't think that something in my outfit is clashing.

I basically collect scarves. I like the feeling of having something covering my neck, and scarves are a fun way to accomplish that. They're also relatively small and cheap, and can easily be bright and have fun patterns, while other clothing items can't necessarily.
