Women Spend Year of Their Lives Deciding What to Wear

In news that comes as no surprise to the woman who just discarded three maternity shirts before deciding on the same one she wears every day, most women will spend nearly a year of their lives deciding what to wear, according to a new survey by British retailer Matalan.

I don’t really see what’s wrong with that.  Selecting the right pair of boots is a life-defining decision!  Right up there with religion, life partners and whether to pick “truth” or “dare.”  (TRUTH.  Always.)   It’s asking for men’s opinions that’s a big ol’ waste of time.

Choosing outfits for work, nights out, dinner parties, holidays, the gym and other activities means the average female will spend 287 days rifling through her wardrobe.  The biggest chunk of that time is used picking a kick-ass ensemble for Friday or Saturday nights out or selecting the right clothes for a vay-cay.

The study — which was based on an adult lifetime from the age of 16 to 60 — found most women will spend around 20 minutes deciding what to wear before hitting the town on a weekend night.

The study also found that, on average, women will try on two outfits each morning before coming to a final decision.  And one in two women spends 15 minutes the night before work deciding what to wear.

No worries!  I make up for that lost time by only shaving once a year!  (Says Candy as she stretches in her sleeveless shirt…)  Sex-ay.

A humor columnist for Disney, Nickelodeon, Scary Mommy, Reductress and Redbook, she also used to be a staff writer for the soap opera, The Bold and the Beautiful, where she penned many scripts featuring prolonged heated stares and countless “Who’s the Daddy?” story lines. Candy lives in Los Angeles with her husband, two young kids and three rescue Persian cats, the latter of whom are the real brains behind this operation (so send all complaints to them).
