Even if you resell it, it's at a fraction of what you paid.
The dreaded compromise for a good deal. <- never again!!
When something doesn't fit perfectly, but since it's a great price you buy it anyways hoping it'll work. It won't. It'll just rot away in your closet.
SF also can be a huge problem.
What some people like, or what's considered by the rules might not fit you as a person. Take the time to develop your own style
+1 more on buying too fast!
I have gone through several upgrades, and am just now learning about REAL QUALITY clothes!
There are a lot of things I have and, while most are decently made, I am going to take everything to a tailor to have them altered to fit better!
Getting stuck on one brand is a double edged sword as well. You find something that fits, and then you don't look at others that may fit just as well, or even better.
Being a bargain whore! This is one of the toughest things for me! Buying stuff just because it's cheap, or on sale! I visit family in the states every year, and used to go hog wild at outlet stores. Now it's more of piggy wild
....just this summer, I purchased less quantity and more quality. Still ended up with more stuff than most human beings need, but also came back with quality items, and filled out some gaps in the wardrobe!
Take your time, LEARN, define your own style, and always, ALWAYS, buy the best quality you can afford! More of what most have said on this thread!
Great idea for a thread, by the way!
