This is a question Waste of money

I once paid a small fortune to a solicitor in a legal case. She got lost on the way to court, turned up late with the wrong papers and started an argument with the judge, who told her to "shut up, for the love of God". A stunning investment.

Thanks to golddust for the suggestion

It's a clothes story, boys look away now; girls, gather round
I ordered a dress to be made for me for my sister's wedding. made for you means it can't go back. It arrived and Ihated it, I tried it on and I hated it. I put it in the wardrobe and brought it out every week or so and I hated it. I bought a bag, shoes and jewellery to go with it in the hope that they would magically make it look gorgeous. Nope. I hate it. £160 of posh frock for wedding and it makes me look like a brace of hippos in a duvet. I hope ebay have a category for 'seriously unflattering dresses that I hate'. Meanwhile, I will be attending the wedding in a pair of spanx and some lovely silver shoes because I am NOT going to wear that dress.

Backup outfit?
Damn, I'm glad I was born (and remain, thanks for asking) a male. There's no such thing as a backup outfit in my lexicon or in my wardrobe. As long as it's clean and things vaguely hang together without an obvious faux pas, on it goes.

Another reason to be grateful - the number of pairs of footwear I own can be counted in single digits, and that includes sport/task-specific shoes. No Imelda Marcos here.

i don't have all that many pairs of shoes
but i'd be lost without a backup outfit of a weekend. i tend to leave one in my mate's house so, if we have something to eat or drink before going out, i've got something clean to wear if i spill anything.
also, when your mate phones half an hour before you go out to tell you she's wearing an outfit almost EXACTLY the same as one you'd planned to wear, a backup outfit is a godsend.
