Fashion and Affordability

Published on July 27th, 2022.


For years this has been a struggle. I always want to stay at the front of fashion trends, but honestly I am on a budget. What I have found over the years is that it is not so much about the newest trend, but building a closet of quality clothing that can stand the test of time. By just adding a piece of trending fashion that goes with what you already have, you will elliminate overcrowding in your closet and emptying your pocketbook.


I'm not saying turn your back on fashion, but take control of the trends and make them your own.


I"ve been following fashion my whole life and I have gotten a little wiser over the years.  Also, our bodies change over the years. What looked great on you 15 years ago might not have the same effect it once did. We will talk in my blog concerning the emptying out of your closet and when it is the best time to do it.


I love seeing that new piece and just falling in love with it.  And I know the struggle:  should I really buy it or not?  I say follow these tips and, if it is a yes, then absolutely buy it!


Tip 1. Ask yourself what do I have that goes with it. If you do not have anything already that goes with it then you can count on that purchase being a lot more expensive.


Tip 2. Is this purchase going to break my bank? If the item is something that is a little more than you can affford then save up for it. Do not spend your grocery budget on the item but save up for it. It makes it a lot more fun.  They say all good things come to those who wait. I think in a very expensive buy this is the way to go.


Tip 3. Which brings me to buyers remorse. Make sure that you truly are going to love the item and no matter what it cost, that you will continue to love it for years to come. You do not want to fall into the trap of buying an item and getting home and seeing it on, saying, well I hope no one ever figures out how much I spent on that, or having so much remorse that you don't even wear the item. Mostly, just love what you buy.  Make sure it goes with what you have and wait for those big buys for times we clean our closet or have to change our style to suit new body type or age. That is it for now ladies. Feel Wonderful. Feel wonderful for your day and feel wonderful for yourself.
