Love that! (105 posts)
Here to make sense of the endless abyss of shirts, dresses, skirts, shoes, jeans, and jewelry: Stylitics—a new site that logs what you own (allowing you to manually upload photos of all your items or add things via the web), keeps track of your outfit history and recent purchases, gives you new ideas for what to wear, and even tells you the weather so that you that you know to slip on your rainboots or pack an umbrella. According to Stylitics, the average consumer has over 250 items in their closet, but their calendar function ensures you don't repeat ensembles and helps you plan what to put on day-to-day or for upcoming events—making getting dressed in the morning more foolproof. Plus, you can access your virtual closet anywhere you're able to log on—meaning you can double-check what's hanging up at home before buying yet another black dress.
