I’ve already admitted on this podcast that I’m a recovering shopaholic. And let me tell you, I have a real talent for justifying almost anything I want as a need. But as I’ve gotten older and wiser, I’ve also started to question whether any retail purchases are truly a legitimate need.
Yes, we need clothing. It's one of only 3 essentials to survival along with food and shelter. But do we ever need the little black dress or the perfect suede pump that's decidedly missing from our collection? Maybe not.
That said, the goal isn't to deprive yourself of the things you want. It's simply to prioritize your needs first and more carefully consider the rest. Because it takes intentionality and discernment to curate a closet you love.
Let's agree to shop smarter, shall we? To help you do this, I came up with 7 sequential questions to ask yourself so you can easily discern your wardrobe needs from your wants. Because, if you’re anything like me, sometimes that line gets fuzzy. I promise, if you take the extra minute to ask yourself these questions and answer them honestly, you will effectively eliminate impulse shopping and buyer’s remorse. You’ll have less, but better pieces in your wardrobe, the right outfits for every occasion on your calendar, and so much more confidence when it comes to shopping.
Are you ready to do this, my friend? It’s going to be a good one!
