Bulk Buying








I think I have mentioned before here, that quite often when I find something I like, that I know I'm going to get a great wear out of, I buy it in many colours.

These bodies from Top Shop are one such item. I have many snug and high waisted skirts and shorts that need a snug, clean line. So I bought, black, navy, pastel pink, taupe and cream. There were many others too - light grey, dark grey, white, brown.

I'm sure I wore these the first time around, too many years ago to count. I definitely see myself getting a lot of wear out of them again for this spring and summer.

  2. they look grat in bulk, maybe you could even wear two of them together ;) I just notice, I've nevere even considered buying one of those for myself...maybe I should!

  3. Very good idea - for me, as a pear-shaped girl, I love high-waisted tulip skirt but need a tight top to balance me out! I just bought American Apparel's stripy bodysuit and I wish it was cheaper so I could bulk buy!

  4. I only have one thing in 2 different colours, and that's a pair of fab shoes (Mum bought one pair for me). I'd be worried about style ruts if I bought the same thing more than once, and I don't have the money to do it yet for classic things.

  5. Hahaha! I am so like you... if I see something I like and it fits well, I buy all the colors. I just bought a Mango top in four colors the other day.

    Have a great day! xoxo

  6. These are perfect! I do this too, I found a pair of cheap black skinny jeans that fit perfectly so I buy them 2 or 3 pairs at a time!

  7. These colours look so lovely together. shame you couldn't wear them all at once. I think bodysuits are a great idea, they sit flat without riding up at all - haven't owned one for at least 10 years though.

    I do the same, I like having my fav basics in different colours!

  9. I too wore bodysuits the first time and am loving them again this time. They are perfect for layering x

  10. I do this with basics too, it's definitely worth stocking up if you find something you like that fits well.

  13. Great idea! I love the muted colours of these too - will definitely check them out next time I'm in Topshop.

  14. I'm exactly the same when it comes to basics like that I have a whole wardrobe full of different colour sweaters from Zara, I'm quite tempted to get myself some bodysuits now after seeing this!

  15. I do this as well. Sometimes I see something that I love and I can't decide which color I like best so I buy a few!

  16. I completely understand - bodies are so necessary with high-waisted items! :)

  19. I should get one of those in black for one dress of mine- it's always nice to find things which you really love.
    I bought a cardigan in 2 colours at Topshop, because I like them so much!

    How have you been by the way?

  30. Those are so lush! I love the colours. South African shops have hardly any bodies and I'm so desperate for a stack like that. Good shop lady! x

  33. the pictures u took make something like basics look so good! and i always buy in bulk too :P

  34. I totally agree with bulk buying where very useful items are concerned. I could kick myself for not buying more of the items I tend to wear over and over and over again.

  35. Those are amazing, I wish we had topshop over here! I so often find myself constantly retucking shirts.

  36. I've just bought 3 of these in different colours! x

  37. I haven't done this in the past, but now I'm starting to get the hint! I always have those moments when I regret no bulking up on a certain items.

    ReplyDelete
  38. not a bad idea. I am thinking of doing the same now with the dress that I have on today. Better to plan ahead of time because then when they no longer have them its too late! Thanks for the good advice.

  39. Body suits are fab, I've been getting them from InWear for the last couple of years. They had them at Leaf, Newcastle. Dorothy Perkins had some fairly good black long sleeved ones but Top Shop will be my destination tomorrow. Thanks!

  40. Great find. I wish there TopShop was available in my area. Love your blog.

  41. I really like the look of a bodysuit, but are they comfortable? The last time I wore one in public was in a ballet class. Love the blog!
