Coming back from a long, and fun Memorial weekend and sitting in front of my computer on a Tuesday, just means one thing. Fancy sales hitting my inbox. I first check out the sites, Net-a-Porter, and then Moda Operandi from my top priority hit list, put stuff in my cart, and then digest the digital damages. Frankly, from my experiences as a veteran shopper, seeing the spring sales that I once swooned over, are still expensive. You may want to think about the golden bullet before you bite into it, which rings true for filling up your shopping cart in the supermarket, hoping that you will eat every single piece of fruit that you put in your cart before they expire.
What seems to draw us in as consumers is the inevitable slash. Prices are 30, 40, 50, 70% off the original sky-high prices. Yes, it is the season of the backpack that seems to be slung across the shoulders of practically every cool girl in the business and pictured in countless magazines as an essential of the season. There was an electric excitement and buzz surrounding it. It was “it,” so to speak. But now that it is on sale, do you want it? Do you need it? Is the desire still there?
Make sure to buy what you love, not FOMO spending because everybody has it, but rather something you will love and cherish. I thought I would never wear this floral dress again, but pulling it out and wearing it, I don’t need convincing.
P.S. I am throwing down the fashion gauntlet nonetheless for anything Marni.
