When I get a new article of clothing I like to try it on with different outfits. Sometimes, usually on Sundays, I try on a few outfits before I've settled on what to wear. It's very offensive when my manly hubby says something like "you've changed again!" Geesh I'm a girl give me a break. It's what some girls do. Am I right? I'm pretty sure even though I don't have sisters.
Anyhow, I also love to get things on sale. For me, the price tag is what sells me and what gives me a feeling of satisfaction. If I feel like it was a good deal then I am happier with the item sometimes at the expense of quality and perhaps fashion style.
A good and long time friend of mine would purchase a lot of her stuff and kids stuff at second hand stores. She and her kids have a great wardrobe having things from second hand stores and regular department stores. She always gets name brands and I'm always in awe at how cute her kids look. I think the key for her is to go often. I've been with her a few times and don't luck out like she does. I don't bother anymore. Besides I probably don't spend as much on kids clothing as I should.
For a handful of years I disliked shopping (a favorite pastime) because I was either pregnant or wearing a post pregnancy body. But, I'm really enjoying shopping again and so I usually just avoid it. I can't window shop. It's too painful.
I donate to the DI several times a year. And recently we went to the DI to see if they had some picture frames to hang up some of the kid's art work and I saw something cute, tried it on and was very, very, very HAPPY. So I went back once more and for $23 I added the following to my wardrobe.
Gap pants. I was very happy I found these because I lost my favorite pair of khaki pants in Jackson Hole :0(
Love these white Arizona jeans. Not a spot on them BTW.
abercrombie zip up sweater with hoodie. hmmmm I'm loving it.
Cute clothes, nice price tag.......such a pick me up. Time to clean house!
