Pretty much, I’m always getting new pieces here or there. I can’t stop … A weakness of mine but I’m okay with it because I still save for my 401k and personal savings plus all bills are paid first. I would like to cut back and sometimes I do but sometimes I can walk into target and walk out with like five outfits. It’s hit or miss for me.

No chance.  Sounds like a huge waste of money to me

I’m a material girl in a material world and although I know it’s awful and I hate it, I love buying clothes.

Thankfully my wallet tells me I can’t replace my wardrobe (aka all the shit that doesn’t even go together) on a 6-month basis, but I do buy new stuff every now and then to replace ripped, holey and stained clothes that my wife tells me to throw away.

I also sell (with no luck) on Poshmark in the hopes that my gently worn, non ripped non stained dresses could find new homes.

No I have clothes I use that are 10+ years old!! I buy when I need or really want something, I’m not typically an impulse buyer (though I buy “regrets” usually online, but they get sent back. Last major brain freeze were bizarre funeral clothes ordered online that got instantly sent back 😑 while I wore a grey polo neck and dark pants on the day). 

The idea to totally shed my wardrobe every season is crazy to me, but I have found that the older I get the better quality items I buy and I know if I’m bored of it or it feels out of style I’ll probably like it again in a few seasons. I do throw away loads every time I move so some purging of stuff do happen, especially worn out shoes that aren’t worth saving just chuck it out!

Several years ago I worked with stylist to help me refine my wardrobe and recognize what looks good on me.  Once you know what flatters your body type and what colors look best on you shopping is so much easier.  I can look at the cut of a dress or jacket on a hanger and know if it is something that would flatter me.

The hardest part was admitting that a bit of leopard is OK, but full on not so much!wink
