This state of faux-celebrity led to the second strange experience: I bought a pair of white pants in the dead of winter. That's right. White cigarette pants. In January. I think the lack of cranky, snow-covered hoards, combined with the fact that my parents are on their way to Florida, lulled me into a false sense of tropical comfort. The pants are oftly lovely though, so I will definitely not be waiting until spring to wear them.
My little adventure this morning inspired me to blog about some easy-to-follow tips for stress-free shopping. I know that a lot of people find shopping overwhelming or depressing, so here are some ways to get the most out of the experience:
Keeping a wish list, whether it's on your phone or in your day book, is a great way to keep track of the things that you really want. Your list will also help prevent impulse buys; when you see something that you want on a shopping trip, refer to your list. If it's one of the things that you have been searching for, then go ahead and buy it! If not, ask yourself some questions. Do you really need it? Does it work with the pieces in your wardrobe? How frequently will you wear it?
Wishing you empty stores and shopping success!
