MY WARDROBE FOOTPRINT

The easiest way to learn about your wardrobe is to look at the data. I started an inventory of my wardrobe recently and while it required a lot of time initially, I now have a valuable source of data to review my wardrobe choices and how they relate to life events as well as a starting point to track down the origins of my wardrobe.

how old is my wardrobe?

A view into when my current wardrobe items were purchased.

Nearly my entire wardrobe was donated after I began my capsule wardrobe in 2014 with only shoes surviving the transition. Last year (the year I moved to New York) I purchased 44% of my current capsule wardrobe.

WHERE MY WARDROBE WAS MADE

Over 50% of my wardrobe was made in China with 44% purchased from one clothing brand (Madewell). Four out of the five most expensive items were also made in China - the other item was made in India.
