I went for 12 weeks of work days without repeating a single clothing item. But early on I went a few weeks where I skipped a day, so I ended up only documenting 56 outfits.
(Note to self, next time I do this, be more consistent with my camera's white balance settings!)
And just for fun, a shoe recap as well.
Also for fun (probably only fun for me, but whatevs), since I'd taken the time to note the brand/store all my outfits were from in the original posts, I decided to do some data charts, just out of curiosity. I broke down all of the brands/stores for all of the tops, dresses, bottoms (including skirts, shorts and pants), accessories and shoes.
And then, to combine all of my Excel dorkiness, I did a combo of all of the above charts, including everything I wore for the 12 weeks.
And yeah, just as I suspected, I big puffy heart Target, and a select few other inexpensive retailers.
Sorry if I'm boring you. :P
Although one thing that maybe someone can learn from all of this is that if you want to have a large quantity of clothes to choose from, shopping at inexpensive stores helps a lot. I got a lot of comments over the weeks like "wow, I can't believe you have so many clothes" or "I could never spend so much money to have a closet like yours."
But the reality is, I'm actually pretty cheap when it comes to clothes. I save clothes forever to build up my collection (I actually have shoes from high school still, one pair which I think I need to dig out because they're back in style). And there are very few designer brands in my breakdown charts. It's all about finding the fun, versatile and cheap clothing items for me. I'm sure I could walk into any number of more expensive stores and find a ton of clothing items I like. But I think it's more fun to peruse the aisles of cheaper stores, finding those sales, finding that perfect top that's on the clearance rack for $7.99.
And that's totally a lesson I wish I would have learned in high school, instead of being obsessed with brand names and what people would think of me!
