We all love getting a deal, right?
But, is it possible that, maybe – just, maybe – we’re a little too obsessed with getting the most value for our money when it comes to clothing?
I say, yes.
See, value shouldn’t be the main criteria for choosing your clothes. Yeah, I said it. If you’re constantly looking for sales, only shopping the clearance rack, shopping exclusively at TJ Maxx – in other words, taking a “doomsday prepper” approach to building your wardrobe – you’re never going to be happy with your wardrobe. Stockpiling isn’t the way to go, here.
Building a wardrobe isn’t about getting the best value. It’s about curating a collection you love.
But, wait – didn’t I build an entire wardrobe from Goodwill stores for $500 back in 2010?
Yes, that’s me.
And, yes, at the time, my goal was to get as much as I could for as little as I could spend.
But, I’m telling you this now because the lesson I learned from that “Goodwill Experiment” was how to build a wardrobe I would end up loving – not how to get the best deals.
Budget shopping doesn’t automatically mean you’re being smart; it’s still possible to waste your money, even if you’re only paying $8 for pants.
The point is that the clothes in the closet isn’t the end game – having style you love is!
So, If you’re facing a closet full of nothing to wear each morning, and if your shopping habits resemble those nuts in Extreme Couponing, you’re going about this all wrong.
Stop. Take a breath. And do the work of discovering what you actually like, not just what’s on clearance.
My group program, The Style Mastery Sessions, launched earlier this month and I am completely amazed at what my members are achieving already. This is a group of smart, driven, professional women who are experiencing almost-daily revelations about their style and their habits. But, we need more women like this in our group!
