Should I Buy The Bag?

Start the test to find out!

August 2017

Okay, a little back story here: I used to blog about affordable fashion and give tips on how to shop responsibly. I stop the blog but not the smart shopping advice.

We are Summer 2017, a friend of mine asked my opinion on whether to buy this unnecessary but cute luxury bag. Instead of blowing her off with sarcasm, I drew a decisional diagram, sent it to her and posted it on Instagram, I figure that would also help other people. Someone commented, “Can I use it for an infographic?”. This made me think: well, I’m a developer now, I can develop this idea.

The app is a simple Yes/No test according to a very precise order of questions to help the user responsibilize itself on how to shop smart. Gifs are being used to give a little attitude to the answer.

The cool part is the collection of data from the answer and the “stats page” displaying interesting results…

Back then, I wanted to get myself a greater experience with Javascript and data manipulation. All answers to questions are stored to create statistics that can be seen after finishing the test.
