66-100: You sound super organized, the sort of person who always
has the ideal outfit for every occasion, perfectly pressed, with
just the right accessories. You probably instinctively keep your
wardrobe pared down to just the right clothes for the occasion,
and have no problem deciding what to wear each day. You probably
have a strong personal style, and only wear colours that suit you.
You are probably brilliant at transforming classic clothes for special
occasions with stunning accessories or dramatic jewellery. Lucky
most people, you probably wish you could simplify your life by cutting
down on clothes and possessions. It's not as difficult as you think,
and can make a dramatic difference. You could feel much more in
control, the daily decision of what to wear would be much easier,
and you would probably spend much less, but be better dressed and
coordinated. On the other hand, unless you are the sort of person
who is happy with a minimal, capsule wardrobe, it is probably important
to have a variety of clothes to suit your moods.
sounds like the wardrobe from hell, overflowing with a riotous selection
of uncoordinated, inappropriate garments. You are always impulse
buying, and never throw anything away, but somehow you never seem
to have a thing to wear! Every special occasion causes you a wardrobe
crisis, resulting in yet more panic buying, and yet another once-worn
item hanging there. There are also the things you will never wear
because they no longer fit. Sounds like you need to get a grip,
and try out some of the techniques for cutting down on clothes.
It could transform your whole life.
