I'm not really into fashion, but I spent quite some time yesterday reading through Closet Visit, where Jeanna Sohn "visits creative, inspiring and stylish ladies' closets."
What caught my attention was this refrain:
Joanna Williams: "Buy what you love. I know that sounds cliché and ridiculous, but don't buy those things that you're pondering over. You'll regret spending the money and wish you would have bought something else."
Jesse Kamm: "Buy what makes you feel great. If it is not a must, leave it on the rack for someone else."
Sunshine C. Fox: "Just because it's inexpensive doesn't always make it a good purchase; buy only the things that make your heart sing."
And, of course, the same "buy what you love" caution can apply to everything we purchase, not just our clothes and shoes.
