Adding pieces to your wardrobe should be done mindfully and with a lot of thought, so that you don’t end up with a closet bursting at the seams yet you have “nothing to wear.” The next time you are thinking about investing in a new item, answer these 15 questions honestly and determine if it’s truly right for you.
Do I really, truly, honestly need it?
Do I already have something similar?
Do I have something to wear it with?
Do I have multiple things I can wear this with?
Would I really wear it?
Why do I want this? (Is it because someone else owns it?)
Am I in love with it?
Does it look good on me?
Did I read the label?
Is it made of good-quality fabric?
Is it well structured, does the stitching seem firm?
Will I have to toss it after one wash?
Price and Value
Can I afford it?
Will I regret it?
Is it a good value for the price or is it just cheap?
The rest is up to you! An answer should always be a firm yes or no; do not buy it “just because it’s cute”!
