"I wish I just saved my money on [these], maybe to buy groceries, or to pay for my electricity bills. Tita na talaga tayo ngayon," Kryz Uy hilariously declares as a prelude to dishing on all the designer bag and shoe purchases she regrets. Trivia: One of the items she talks about was actually bought during one of her first dates with her now-husband Slater Young! Goes to show that sometimes, good can come out of an impulse buy.
Watch her spill here:
Planning to buy a designer bag soon? Here are three major pointers from Kryz to keep in mind before making a big-ticket purchase:
1. Be practical.
“I regret buying [this bag] because even my phone won’t fit inside," shares Kryz, who bought an adorably tiny and "pricey" crossbody purse that she ended up using for only three to four times. Always ask yourself: Is the bag big enough to store the items you can't leave your house without?
2. Listen to your gut.
It's nice to get your BFF's opinion when shopping, but if you really feel alanganin about a certain shoe that feels slightly uncomfortable when worn or a bag that's a little too small for you, be smart and trust your instinct. “Sometimes you don’t listen to your friends—you listen to your heart," says Kryz, admitting she once bought an expensive bag out of peer pressure.
3. Comfort over anything.
“When I saw these [pointed heels at the store], I already knew that they would kill my feet,” recounts the blogger. Regretfully, Kryz still ended up buying the pair of heels. “Everytime I would wear [this pair], I would always have a spare ballet flats... I always end up changing because they’re so painful [to wear],” Kryz added. Her major takeway? “No matter how pretty a shoe is, if it hurts, it’s not worth it.”
