Why Do We Do This?

As the seasons change, I send the winter clothes to the basement, and the spring and summer clothes return to the closet. It's then that a wave of shame washes over me, as I become reacquainted with some of the items hanging there with the tags still on. There's the blazer I loved in the store (and still do!), but never found pants that looked quite right with it. Then there are the way too long trouser jeans that I never got around to hemming. Oh, and the cute dress that was supposed to look great once the baby weight finally came off. Well, you know how that story goes...

Why do we women do this? It turns out that there's more to it than sloppy shopping skills. Read on to discover real women’s hidden closet secrets, and what you can learn about them.

So what kind of shopper are you?
