I have a few rules, 1) Stock up on basics, but not overly so.
2) Can I make this cheaper?
3) If I have to buy other items to go with it, it’s not worth it.
4) If it can be warn more than one way, and is multiseasonal, it is a must.

1. I always look around to see if i can get a simmilar piece at a better price
2. invest in essentials and things that you will regularly wear like jeans
3. word of mouth is really great for getting an honnest opinion
Totally agree. I would not:
1) buy an item that has a similar color to at least two items in my closet
2) buy something expensive that I feel like I won’t use, but want to buy anyway because it looks really pretty
3) buy something cheap but want to buy anyway because it looks really pretty
Whenever I pick up tons of items, I give myself time to try all of them so I can do elimination method. I wouldn’t want to end up with something that won’t look nice on me.posted over 2 years ago
I was taught not to buy the first thing I see (like) because there might be things I haven’t seen and I would possibly like them more. But if I really love something and I don’t buy it, it’ll be haunting me and I couldn’t stop thinking about it. Then I return to the shop and buy it :Dposted over 2 years ago
You guys have some great tips! I think I am going to have to add some of your rules to mine :)
When I find things I love in the first store I go into, I usually ask the sales person to hold them for me for a couple hours. This gives me time to wander through other stores, find other things and better deals, and think about whether I really like the first items best. If I don’t find anything I like better, I go back and get whatever I still want from the first store. This way, I don’t risk losing them if they’re low in stock in my size, but I still have time to think it over. Most stores have a 24 hour hold policy, so they don’t mind holding things for an afternoon.posted over 2 years ago
ooh, very good tips! I am a bit more of a spontaneous shopper, but I do find one rule to always be key; make sure that whatever I am planning on buying FITS and FLATTERS. Nothing worse than adorable clothes that don’t fit right! very frustratingposted about 2 years ago
That’s a great idea. I never thought to place the item on hold and then look around the mall and come back if I can’t find anything better. I have to start doing that. So many times I’ve gone into the next store and found something better but been too lazy to go back and return the first item.posted about 2 years ago
