A great mantra to go by in many areas of life, but especially when it comes to our wardrobes. We have too many clothes - if you are honest with yourself, what percentage of what you own do you actually wear? So make an effort to CUT DOWN AND MAKE YOUR MONEY GO FURTHER.
Wears per buy is a good way to think of it. Are you really getting value for money? BUILD A CAPSULE WARDROBE full of pieces that can be mixed and matched and made from quality materials that will stand the test of time. A perfectly cut organic cotton shirt or a pure virgin wool coat that will be a pleasure to wear and that you will treasure is worth so much more than 5 cheap tops that you’ll wear once and forget about.
TAKE TIME BEFORE MAKING A DECISION TO BUY SOMETHING - how often you will wear it, what does it go with in your wardrobe, do you really need it? It’s just about balancing the want and the need. This isn’t to take away any of the joy of shopping - quite the opposite - when you finally get your hands on something you’ve been lusting after for some time the reward will be even sweeter. A far cry from the short-lived sugar high you receive from a cheap impulse buy.
