If you haven't worked it out by now, I love clothes, shoes and all those many varied accessories. So it is therefore probably not surprising that I also love shopping. I'm not really one of those people who can shop for endless hours, I prefer brief encounters with the shopping centre, an hour or two and I'm done. Still that has resulted in me coming to learn a number of important lessons over the years. They include:
If you aren't quite sure about something you've tried on and are wishing you had someone there to give you a second opinion - it isn't right, don't buy it.
The only size 10 shoes that end up on sale are truly ugly. If you love the pretty shoes that are miraculously in stock, buy them, they won't last till sale time.
If you didn't buy something but you keep thinking about it - go back and get it.
If you find something that fits really well, is flattering and comfortable - buy it in all the colours.
I'm still learning this one, gosh I wish I'd bought more pairs of my perfect fitting black pants. But I am learning so today I went and bought a second pair of the truly fantastically comfortable ballet flats that S bought me for my birthday. He got them for me in cream, I now have them in black and they are seriously so comfy it is almost like wearing slippers - slippers that are office appropriate!
