“You should plan to be at the Pad & Quill headquarters by 11 on Friday, we are filming so you need to look cute? What? Don’t I always look cute? Here I thought Mr. PQ was a fan of flannels and jeans. But I digress. We are shooting some video footage as introduction to our new line of leather goods and iPhone cases, very exciting. Now back to cute, here’s where I need help, comprehensive, someone raids my closet and takes me shopping help. Help which assures me that 7 gray t-shirts and 3 pairs of jeans does not a wardrobe make. Don’t get me wrong, I do own other clothes. Mr. PQ is an amazing shopper, he buys me things. He even buys me outfits. I just don’t know what to do with the clothes on a day-to-day basis, and jeans and a t-shirt are seamless, especially when I can throw in my old leather kicks as an accessory. Solid, until the filming of a video arises. So, here is where my million-dollar idea kicks in.
Attention app developers, I need help. I want someone to write me an app that allows me to enter all of my clothes into a virtual closest, it needs a function where I can move the clothes to a dirty laundry bin so as to take them from “inventory” until I do a load of wash. Then I want to enter what I am doing that day, e.g. bookkeeping, personal training, trail running, house cleaning, or date night with hubby. I also want to be able to enter my mood, e.g. “a little crabby, it’s that time of the month” or “spring baby!” Or “be at the warehouse at 11 and look cute and don’t be nervous” The app would compile that data and shoot me out a few possible options. Like this on my Pintrest page.
Retailers could make a fortune as they could post little ads to my app that would suggest things for me to buy, and give me coupon love that is oh so hard to turn down. (An aside, Gap I love your clothes, but please stop showcasing new arrivals on models that weigh about 47 pounds.)
This of course brings me to a few other techie devices I’d actually buy, hint to Apple, I’m a terrific product tester.
Lifeprinter, a new kickstarter campaign, which looks so simply wonderful that we backed it. The Star Wars shirt under the suit coat should sell you, if nothing else does.
iBracelet with wireless headphones. For those long runs when, inevitably the sounds of your own breathing is going to drive you nutty. Hello Apple, product tester here!
So, let it not be said that Mrs PQ doesn’t have just a little tech saavy.
