If I were rich, I would shop at:
And I’d buy great jeans from:
Or maybe I wouldn’t.
Maybe, instead, I’d keep wearing the clothes that I have in my closet.
Sometimes, I am tempted to just say “good riddance” to the whole notion of high-fashion and keeping up with trends. BUT then I remember that…(a) first impressions matter, (b) “looks” matter, and (c) it is unwise to mitigate the power of clothing and attractiveness in influencing our world.
So I try to look stylish without spending ridiculous quantities of money. After all, I want to LOOK like a person who is going to change the world (and people really do make “judgment calls” about your competence and character based on how you look).
That said, I don’t want to empty my wallet on things that don’t have any real significance.
It is my desire to live a “balanced life.”
In real time, this means:
- spending MORE on high-quality pieces that are versatile and that will last a long time in my wardrobe.
- hosting quarterly clothes swaps to give old clothing away and to replenish my closet.
- watching for clothing sales online and in-stores.
This weekend, I’ll be sharing some of my recent fashion finds…and I’ll also give you an opportunity to win some apparel and shoes of your own. Stay tuned!
YOUR TURN: If you could shop for clothes anywhere, where would you go? How do you save money when it comes to buying clothes for yourself?
