Whether you shop for fun or for necessity, I think we’re all predisposed to making some common mistakes.
Buying Something Because It’s Cheap
Sure, who doesn’t love to save money, but if cheap is the only criteria that helped up you pick that dress – put it back! Think about how that garment will work in your wardrobe. Will you ever even wear it? I like to justify purchases in terms of Cost Per Wear. If an item is more expensive but you’ll get more use out of it, it may be more justified than that cheap frock you’ll wear once. That being said, if something you LOVE is on sale, congratulations and well done!!
Buying Something To Fit Into Eventually
“Oh look it’s an adorable pair of jeans that fits my arms! But that’s ok, I plan on being skinny! I’m sure it will fit soon” Oh boy, I know I’ve said that one too many times! Shop for pieces that make you feel good now, and don’t clutter your wardrobe with clothes for future you. If your body changes, you should accommodate it then. Whether it’s because you’ve worked hard to lose weight, or gained a few pounds, you deserve to feel good.
With New York and London Fashions weeks behind us, and Milan fashion week in full swing I think it’s time I share my 2 cents. Although I wasn’t actually there, thanks to the internet I sure feel like I was!
