After doing the Closet Inventory, I started playing around in my Excel spreadsheet. Because I'm cool like that. This may not be interesting to anyone else, but I thought it was fun to slice and dice the data by different pieces. And then I made some pie charts. Because I'm cool like that.
First up, where I buy all this stuff! It is no surprise that Gap is far and away the leader. If I add the Gap brands together, it's almost half of my wardrobe (Banana Republic and Piperlime are in the "other" category). I was surprised that I have more Loft than H&M or Limited. I haven't had as much luck at Loft in the last year, but I guess I still have items from prior years. Which brings me to...
Over half of my wardrobe has been purchased in the last 18 months. I think this is largely due to the fact that I've been getting rid of stuff, and also because I like to shop. (and also because I've gained some weight, but let's not talk about that, mkay?)
Finally, I wanted to see what colors are most represented. And isn't this a pretty little graph? Other than the random assortment in the upper left quadrant, the sections look pretty cohesive. I've read a few things about building a remixable wardrobe, and I've never purposely shopped for certain colors, but somehow it has worked out. I buy what I like, and I tend to like greens, blues, and pinks, as well as the black/white neutrals. Which means most items go well with most other items!
So now you know what my closet looks like in graphical form. You're welcome (and I'm sorry).
