should i be embarrassed?

So i was talking to a friend about something i do, i didn't think it was a big deal, but she thought it was hilarious.

well you know those days when you go to the closet and think you have nothing to where, yet it is full? I do that all the time. So i started taking a picture every time i wear an outfit i love. I take then from different angels so i get the full effect, and then store them on my comp. it's like a virtual closet or catalog.

anytime i can't find something to wear i can look through that and pick.

Please tell me i don't need therapy lol

Well, it's not exactly the same, but I do like to take photos of myself sometimes before I go out, as I don't have any mirrors. Well anything bigger than a face mirror. Which is just not good enough to get a full view of what you are wearing.

I think it's a great idea. I doubt you are the only person to do it either. Happy

Wow that is such a good idea! That happens to me with the wardrobe thing, I always wear the same things! We have a full length mirror but its broken up in the middle by the wardrobe and handles if you get what i mean, everyone should have a proper full length mirror they make you feel better!

maybe we all need therapy! Happy

My full length mirror is a curvy one so I keep having to move so I can see myself properly!

It is a little odd I guess, but it makes sense. I wouldn't worry about it, as long as you go out looking good and feeling happy, why not =)

Nice idea Happy

I'm a complete jeans-and-tshirt person so its not really difficult for me to find something to wear every day haha.

Actually I should probably do something like this, I'm finding it so hard to work out what to wear each day that I'm ending up wearing boring stuff

that what my problem was. i would always wear something boring. I would buy or make something really wild/cute/fun and then never where it because i couldn't put an outfit together. I would wear it once an then forget that i found something to go with it, or that the outfit that i thought would be horrible together actually worked.

sometimes that happens to me, so I actually recyle my wardrobe a few times a year. I tend to go those phases in my wardrobe.

One year I was huge into mensware, then one year it was browns, I was big on tailoring in uni, in Graphic design school it was colour blocks, right now its comfort(because I tore a tendon in my leg and have to send loads of time lying down and staying still.)
