I've been thinking about lately how different my wardrobe looked when I lived in Finland vs now that I'm living here in the US. It seems to me that in Europe women build their wardrobe from few key pieces and then they rotate the clothes through out the week. Even business outfits. (I worked in an office in Finland before I moved over here.) Women will typically have like 3 pairs of pants, couple of skirts and then maybe 5 shirts and perhaps 2 business suits. A few very well made pairs of shoes that are expensive but last many years. You only have sales in the stores twice a year so you know that when it's a sale time it really is a sale time. Here in the US I found that if you get caught wearing the same outfit during the week (I mean like the same pants with a different top) people give you the looks. At least this is how I found it to be in all the office environments I've worked in. I've had several colleagues who never wore the same outfit again after I saw them wear it once and they would tell me that they go shopping for clothes every other weekend and sometimes every weekend. When I first moved over I didn't really pay attention to this but now after 8 years of living here I've been starting to compare the lifestyle here and Europe. It's very interesting. What do you ladies think about this? Since we have users all over the world I would love to hear how your wardrobe looks like (do you have closets and closets full of clothes some of them totally untouched and you don't even remember what you have or do you use all your clothes in the closet all the time?) and how frequently do you shop for new clothes, shoes etc?
