Poking around in a woman’s wardrobe is a personal thing. Something I don’t take lightly. Lots of emotion, stress, frustration, happiness, sentiment and love can be tied up in the clothes hanging there. I get that.
What I don’t get is that so many of us are guilty of buying a new top, a dress or a pair of pants because we need something new for a special occasion or because it happens to be on the sale rack. We don’t mindfully shop (how very Oprah of me), taking the easy way out and settling for a purchase that in our hearts we know is not quite right.
We convince ourselves that once we get home it will a) fit better; b) make us look and feel fabulous; and c) work with five pieces already in our wardrobe.
The “d) all of the above” of this multiple-choice scenario may seem like a pipe dream when you see the swing tag of those rushed purchases winking at you each day as you open your wardrobe but it need not be the case.
If you follow my five tips to stylish clothes shopping on Justb, a functional and fabulous wardrobe will no longer be a dream. And you’ll never make one of those “what was I thinking?” purchases again. Guaranteed.
Does every piece in your wardrobe make you feel fabulous? Hands up if you’ve bought something recently without trying it on? Success or fail?
