Often when I’m out shopping and I find the “perfect thing” I have to stop myself and ask the questions from my previous blog:
Do I love it?
Does it work into my wardrobe in a variety of ways?
And does it actually add to my wardrobe or is it more of the same?
And I’d add one more question… Why am I buying this today? I mention this because like some people eat when they are bored, I tend to shop when I’m bored. And this can lead to a variety of problems: debt, too many clothes and frankly an empty feeling. Check your gut when you are buying something. What’s the motivation? Something new and interesting that will add to your wardrobe or more of the same?
