Report: women spend but still have nothing to wear?

MYFOXNY.COM -

Women and shopping go about as well together as chocolate and peanut butter. And for some it's even more irresistible.

It is not really shocking that when it comes to clothes shopping, women spend a lot -- even with a big sale going on.

So how much do women spend? According to a study by Sure Women Linen Dry, the average woman spends more than $100,000 on clothes in her lifetime. But many women still say they have nothing to wear. Researchers say about 60 percent of women struggle to put together an outfit.

Jacquie Stafford, a fashion editor and stylist to the stars, believes women over-shop because they are not shopping smart.

The study of 1,000 women also found that almost half admit to changing outfits twice a day.

Researchers found that the item women bought the most was, you guessed it, shoes. According to this study, a woman will buy about 300 pairs of shoes in her lifetime.
