As a woman it’s not a secret that many of us have some not so great shopping habits. One big and maybe the absolute biggest is impulsive buying, we like it so we buy it but that’s not smart shopping! Especially when we’re splurging on pieces that perhaps aren’t so necessary.
There’s no point in paying $500+ on a pair of shoes that aren’t going to be worn past the current season. Ladies, Don’t shop for the season! When you’re shopping look for quality pieces and invest in longtime pieces!
Sit down and really think about it for a moment, if you’re shopping on a budget and have a set amount to splurge with are you really going to buy those $800 colorful, spiked shoes or invest and a pair of clean and classic black pumps. The key word here is INVEST and ladies, smart shoppers invest!
“What Pieces Should You Invest In”
Remember neutrals are always perfect pieces to invest in as well as a few key brighter pieces. If you’re going to buy a blazer I’d say invest in a properly fitted Black, White, Grey and/or Nude blazer oppose to a Cobalt Blue or a Red. The neutral are investment pieces that will last throughout all seasons and the brighter colors are statement pieces that can be worn with any outfit to add some extra pizazz but don’t necessarily need to be the expensive pieces. Same with shoes, every shoe should not be a splurge, Pick the classic shoes like a black or nude pump, or a knee high black or brown boot to invest in. Sandals, sneakers and flats can be interchangeable, I would say invest in one good pair of each but there’s no reason to spend upwards of $100 on every shoe in your closet.
Below are some pieces I feel are completely appropriate to invest in.
