Do you ever go shopping and buy a few things and they just happen to look great together? I came home and started reviewing my purchases and loved how everything worked together. Usually I try to think “How will this new item work with what I already own?” When shopping I ask myself to come up with three different ways to wear an item before I purchase it.
Sometimes it can be difficult to think of different ways to wear a certain piece of clothing. The “wear it 3 ways rule” helps me decide how much I really need something, or it can show me that I wouldn’t wear it very often.
Another trick I use when I am shopping is to put items on hold at stores and continue to shop. This stops impulse purchases and gives me time to see what else is available. I might leave and totally forget about putting something on hold, so clearly I never needed it or wanted it. On the other hand, sometimes the first thing you see is the best item of the day and then it’s waiting for you! Do you have any good shopping tricks?
Happy hump day
