One of my (several) resolutions for 2016 was to take an even more thoughtful approach to shopping - one that is a little less wasteful than the way I might have shopped even a few years back. Here's the basic breakdown of my approach:
1. Don't buy something just because it's on sale. Buy it because it fits you and your lifestyle perfectly. Even if it costs more, you'll wear it that much more, which makes it well worth it in the long run.
2. Purchase quality designers and staple pieces you'll keep for a lifetime. Don't have the $$ to fill your wardrobe with designer duds? Most of us don't, which is why I love sites like ThredUp, where you can buy gently used designer beauties that are in excellent condition, for a fraction of the price. (Note my Céline turtleneck, which I scored for under $90).
3. Learn and understand the story behind the brand or the company that makes my clothes. One of my favorite things in the world is to learn about the vision behind a company. If I connect with their story or their concept, I try to support them as much as possible. It always makes me love and appreciate my pieces that much more!
Do you have any style resolutions for 2016?
