    Can you not take some stuff you already own? that way you cut down the amount you spend now which would mean when your there if you find there is something you really need then you can buy it after all where ever you are the normal high street shops will be around....

    OptomBee, I'd say another pair of bottoms, maybe a pair of nice skinny black trousers or something which can easily be dressed up or down? Or maybe a pair of black shorts of something. Then maybe something more casual like a pair of tracksuit bottoms, even for just a day slopping around working in your room.
    hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha hahahahahahahahahahahahaaaaaaaa! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!:rofl:

    Not with these size 12 thighs:eek3: , sorry!

    not woolly, the other kind

    I wear them cos I dress rather demurely-I throw one around my neck if i'm wearing a low cut top, and they're good to add colour/interest to an outfit!

    kinda work like an oversize necklace...this post is making less and less sense as I write...just cant seem to stop typing.

    What i mean is: they look cute, add colour, and to put it crudely, "hide what my mama gave me"

    see?

    I like knotting light scarves together to make a chunky necklace, wearing them normally just irritates me because they always get blown out of place!

    Too cold to wear anything else in edinburgh :P
    Plus i'll be spending time on farms/ in stables during my time at uni.
    I do wear cardigans/ think wooly jumpers too.... so i wont be wearing the same outfit just diff colours/ styles everyday.... i'll mix it up with variations in what shoes i wear too. E.g boots one day, flats one day, uggs one day.... you get the picture I have a couple of pairs of combats too.


    What do you wear? Dresses and skirts? x

    My best friend's in Glasgow, and she wouldn't dream of purchasing a hoodie! Don't think she owns any jeans either - it can be done, if you wanted to (not that you should or anything, if you don't want to).

    Yeah, I wear dresses, skirts, trousers, leggings, shorts...I do have one pair of jeans, though!

    I was thinking the same. Is it really necessary to have a specific list of clothing you're planning to buy specifically for uni?

    i have narrow hips but big thighs so they never fit right and they also look really weird on me. high waisted skirts are the only ones that suit me.
