Clothing Inventory to Complete (own all things on list and take pics of them)

Clothing Inventory (modified from the 2003 issue of The Lucky Shopping Manual):

**I do not have all of these, this is just what Lucky states “you’re covered” if you own.  On Fashion Fridays, I’ll go category by category and check off what I have and include pictures of them.

After reading the inventory, let me know in the comments section below: Is this inventory too sparse?  Too full?  Is there anything glaringly missing?  How does it compare to your own wardrobe?  Do you own the 2012 version of this shopping manual, and if so, is it vastly different from the 2003 version (by the same token, do you think this inventory is outdated, and if so, how should I update it?)?  What are your opinions?
