It's Friday night, and you just got home from work. You have a hot date in 45 minutes. You're already running late, and you have absolutely no clue what you should wear. Sounds horrifying, right?

From that, you can also create lists and outfits, coding outfits according to events, such as dates, work, etc. The cool thing about ClosetSpace is that you can actually view statistics on how often you wear clothing items, so you can decide what to toss and what to keep.
