Whether you're shopping for clothes, shoes, and bags, it's always best to make sure that the money you'll be spending on them is worth it. To avoid unpaid credit card bills, buyer's remorse, and having a collection of unworn items until a year after purchase, ask yourself these major questions purchasing an item:
1. Is this bagay with my other clothes?
Unless you're doing a wardobe overhaul, it's important to make sure that your new purchase can be easily matched with the stuff you already own.
2. Where else can I wear this?
If you only have one occassion where you think you can flash your new threads, then the money you'll be spending on 'em isn't worth it. If you have at least three places (not just mere rare, special events), then your cost-per-wear can be justified.
3. Am I buying this because I'm reminded of someone else's style?
There's nothing wrong with having a style peg, but checking if the item you're crushing on works for body type, personality, and lifestyle is advisable. When you see yourself in the mirror, the said item should scream, "This is so me!"
