Since we are still in the midst of sales, sales, sales —-everywhere! our next step is to avoid the temptations marked ‘Reduced.’
#16 BEWARE OF SALES
Of course you can find a bargain in a sale……but only if you are an experienced shopper.
During sales more mistakes are made than any other time. Remember, it doesn’t matter how pretty a dress is, if you have no use for it………. IT’S NO BARGAIN. Say you find a lovely dress reduced to $80 from $400 (Who can resist a bargain like that? Not many of us) but if you have no occasion in the near future to wear it, it will just hang in your closet — and when months later you are invited and wonder what to wear, you remember the dress you bought a while ago. Getting it out of your wardrobe, probably still with the tag on it, you might ask yourself the following questions:
-Do I still like the dress?
-Is it still in style?
– Do I still feel that it is a new dress? (having seen it in my closet for months).
Whatever the answer, you will probably wear the dress because you have it. Wouldn’t it be better to buy a nice dress NOW? – A dress that will fit your mood and the occasion? Nothing lifts your spirits more than wearing a brand new dress — don’t let a bargain spoil your fun.
Sales are great when you can find an item that you need and can wear —-NOW!
#17 SPEND MORE MONEY ON
These items should cost more than other things in your wardrobe. You will wear a coat or a suit longer than other thing. Spending more means better quality. Better quality means that you will look better and project a positive image.
Accessories should not be cheap – a good scarf can always make a simple, inexpensive dress look good, but never the other way around.
