There is progress!
I followed some of the great advice I got on my previous post (thanks ladies!) and now I have two full bags of clothes ready to be shipped away to new, more deserving owners. Oh joy! There is space in my closet again!
I also came up with an idea to how for get more stuff sorted out. For the coming months, I will try not to repeat outfits s much as possible, and see how far I come. If there still are some items that haven´t been worn (except for my ball gown, national costume and other odd bits and pieces) they´ll have to go!
“But, Sølvi, how are you going to keep track of what you are wearing every day?”, you might ask. And I will answer you with this:
Really, it´s not the exact same program (Clueless being released in 1995), but the idea is the same. Ever since watching this movie the first time, I have been dying to get a hold of a computer program like that. The coolest feature in Cher´s version is that it searches for matches in the closet. Unfortunately, this isn’t included in the software I´ve got. But, still, it is mighty cool anyhow.
What I have got is the excellent wardrobe planner Dress Assistant. Basically, it´s a program that lets you, easily and without any fuzz, upload pics of all your clothes, shoes and accessories, and then you can plan your outfits by the drag-and-drop method. I am still trying out the demo version, but am going for the full version soon. Dress Assistant also keeps track on what I have been wearing lately. Other cool features are that you can take pics directly in the program with your web cam, it´s got voice recognition, you can search and filter your items by weather, color and there´s an iPhone app.
Coolness? Darn right it is.
So, for the coming months I will track my outfits in this magical little program, and then see what have not been used in the end. Let´s have a deadline…hm….February 1st, perhaps? Alright. February it is. Then I´ll have time to make up new stuff for Me-Made-March based on my thorough analysis of my wardrobe rotation during October through January. Alright. Who are with me on this one? 😉
