I think we’re well overdue for a fashion post. If you follow me on instagram, aaelblog (go hit that follow button) then you know I was talking the other day about how I’ve changed the way I shop. There are a couple questions I ask myself now before buying anything.
- First, what’ the items purpose? You should always be considering how a piece will fit into your current wardrobe and if it will last past the current season.
- Second, whats the quality? I tend to shop at retailers in the mid price range and always look for signs that it will last me a couple years, especially with outerwear.
- Lastly, which is a newer concept for me, is cost per wear. When making any purchase I consider what the cost per wear will be and if its worth the price tag.
Another way I’ve changed my shopping habits is how often I shop. If you’ve been reading this blog for a while then you know I’m a shopper. Always have been and it probably wont ever change. What I have stopped is compulsive shopping. I buy seasonally now and with a plan. I make a list of things that I need and want and buy them when they’re on sale, which is usually at then end of a season. So speaking of planning heres some luxury pieces I’m plotting on.
