Everybody tells you to wear what you love.
Well, I want to turn things around today. I am going to tell you something different.
I am telling you to buy what you will love.
Pardon? You asked. But doesn't this stand to reason?
Well, it should. But unfortunately, it doesn't.
Lots of women head off to the shops with only a vague idea of what they want to buy. Sadly, most just head out shopping with no idea of what they want at all and buy what they remember seeing in adverts, or what looks good on the mannequin when they see it (regardless of whether they need it), or if it is right for them, or their body shape, or their style.
So, I shall tell you why you should buy what you will love. Wearing what you love is obvious to me.
However, it comes after buying what you love, buying what fulfil your criteria for clothes that will be wearable for you and that you will cherish.
If you don't do this, you will buy things that are wrong for you. Then, the advice to wear what you love
will be impossible.
Do you understand the logic now?
This 'Buy What You Will Love' is exactly what chic French women do.
We buy what we know we will wear, over and over again, and hence love.
I can hear you now saying:
- 'Hold on! Are you telling me, Marie-Anne, that I have to wear my stuff again? And again? Woaaaahhh…'
- 'Et oui, mon amie', c'est la vie'.
If you have been used to buying pretty much indiscriminately, I understand that you find my advice to buy things you will love and wear over and over again a bit strange. Maybe after wearing an item once, you decide you don't really like it and it sits in your closet never to be seen again. What a waste.
But if you are reading my articles on French Chic, I take it that you are interested in learning about the French mindset. And this advice has to do with the French chic mindset.
In short, chic French women prefer to buy mindfully.
You see, only once the item has passed our list of criteria, will it be allowed to be placed onto the counter and paid for. Otherwise, it will firmly stay in the shop, where it belongs.
There are many tests that we French women put clothes through in the fitting rooms, many things to watch out for and to test.
These tests ensure that:
Do you have clothes, shoes and accessories in your closet that you’ve regretted buying?
Do you buy on impulse and 'just because'?
Do you ever buy something because it looks good on the mannequin, regardless of whether you have the same body shape as the mannequin?
If you added up the total cost of these wasted purchases, how much would this tally?
Are you looking for a way to say goodbye to this bad shopping habit and hello to chic shopping decisions?
