The Wardrobe Code - Be Yourself

[WCP] Ep 18 – Why Shopping for Value is the Wrong Way

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!

How Much Money Do You Need to Spend on Your Wardrobe

how much money

I’ll admit, it’s not a question I get often. I know women I talk to are often afraid to ask. Maybe they’re afraid to ask because the answer might be something they’re uncomfortable with. Perhaps there’s some rejection in hearing a monetary figure that’s higher than what you expected. I’m just speculating based on my […]
