Never Regret a Clothing Purchase

Never Regret a Clothing Purchase


Do you have a closet full of clothes you never wear? 

To help minimize over-spending, impulse purchases and buyer’s remorse, here are
8 smart shopping questions to ask yourself before making a purchase


Do I LOVE this piece?

If you don’t love it, don’t buy it. If you have to talk yourself into an item, than it wasn’t meant to be.


Am I getting this because it’s on SALE?

It’s not a great deal if you’ll never wear it. Put it back.


Where am I going in this?

Every item needs to have a purpose. If you can’t think of a place to wear it, then it doesn’t make sense for you to buy it.


What will the “cost per wear” of this item be?

Each season brings new tempting-to-wear trends. Investing in classic pieces that can be worn season after season makes the “cost per wear” of the piece go down. Invest in a classic pair of black pumps or a fitted black blazer.


Do I own items to wear with it?

Quick! If you can’t think of three items to wear with it then put it back.


Am I filling a wardrobe gap?

Don’t own a trench? Go ahead and buy it. Have three? Walk away.


Do I have to rationalize this purchase?

Example: Telling yourself you won’t eat out or hold off on buying a coffee is just plain insane.


Do I REALLY need this?

Treating yourself is uplifting, but retail therapy can lead to bad decisions.
