shopping questions

bright and cheery



my friend, you are ready to shop!

when you go, be honest with yourself- and take a friend if you need to! have a hardcopy of your list or take it on your phone. {mine’s in evernote. i mean really, did you have to ask? :)}

try on lots of things and be picky.

questions to ask:

  • is it within my budget? {best to ask before you try it on.}
  • does it fit perfectly?
  • is it well made?
  • will it compliment my wardrobe? {consider snapping a picture on your phone of your wardrobe as a whole. reference it when you’re debating a color or trying to get a good idea of just how many remixing options the piece in question will give you.}
  • do i absolutely love it? is there anything i would change about it? {if the answer is no, you know what to do. now muster up the willpower and do it!}

    I’m holding you to your list! Maybe we should trade lists…just to keep each other honest ;)

    I have a Pinterest board of My Closet (it’s easy when you mostly shop online). It makes it really easy to pull up the web page or app and see exactly what’s in my closet. I also use Go Chic or Go Home to brainstorm outfits.
