What do YOU have in your Closet?
Do you ever stand in front of your closet full of clothes and feel like you have nothing to wear? Have you spent WAAAAY too much money on shoes or clothes this year? Have you ever hid a clothing or shoe purchase from a friend of relative?
If you’ve answered “Yes” to any of these questions, no, you aren’t cray cray; in fact, you’re pretty normal (well, with regard to clothes and shopping, at least).
- 14% of women hide some of their shoe purchases from others
Aiight, I’ve personally never done this, but I KNOW some of my friends have. Have you ever hidden a guilty shoe conscience?
- Women buy 3 handbags each year
For real, only 3?? I’ve bought like 6 since July….don’t judge me.
- 40% of women shop while at work
Guilty as charged, although I don’t do this nearly as often as I used to. I’m sure this percentage goes up among women who are”displeased” with their jobs….
- 8.5 years of a woman’s life is spent shopping
Wow, that’s impressive!!
- The average woman spends $49 on a pair of shoes, four times each year
Ok, $49 seems kinda low, but that could only be because I’m financially irresponsible when it comes to footwear expenditures.
And four times a year? That seems low too. What do you guys think?
- Women wear 20% of their clothes 80% of the time
I thought this stat was really interesting. If you’re like me, you don’t wear everything that’s in your closet, and you wear your favorite stuff all of the time. Actually, I’ve heard that women only wear like a third of what’s in their closet!
Why is that? I can think of my own reasons: 1) Doesn’t fit and I wish it did (every woman’s pair of “skinny jeans” could fit in this category); 2) I spent a lot of money on it so I don’t wanna throw it out, but I don’t feel like wearing it; 3) Too much maintenance, like dry clean or hand-wash only; 4) It needs to go with some other clothing item/accessory that I don’t own yet; 5) I like my other clothes better, so I don’t wear it!
Do you guys wear everything that’s in your closet? Why don’t you wear certain items? Do you agree with these stats? Let us know in the comments!
