Shopping dilemmas: what’s the best strategy?

I treated my insecure and moody self to some shopping love today.

I am moody about shopping too. Sometimes I like everything I see, sometimes nothing. Today was an everything day. I had fun!

Some dilemmas I realized I go through a lot when shopping for clothes and shoes:

  • I’m trying to lose weight (already .5 inch gone!). Should I wait to buy clothes when I am at my final destination? Or buy them a little snug? Or just buy my size now and get the clothes altered later?
  • Really hot pieces go fast, so it’s better to buy now and return later if I change my mind. But there’s a time limit for that. And what if I want to wear a new piece? Should I wait until I’m sure I want to keep it?
  • What if even hotter clothes come out in a few weeks? Should I buy all the hot stuff I see now in case clothes get even worse and uglier? Or should I wait to see what else comes out? What if I have a fashion emergency and need a hot outfit fast?
  • Should I buy really nice (and expensive) going out and evening outfits? I will probably wear those items only a few times, but when I do the people I want to impress (the Guy and potential guys) will see it. So is it worth the investment?
  • Or should I spend more money on work clothes since I am seen in those every day and wear those more often? Naaah… I need some hot clothes for work but it’s more important when it’s love time 😉 (I might meet someone at work but our special times will be after hours any way)
  • Should I throw away the clothes I hardly wear? When do I determine I hardly wear them: one season, one year, 2 months, …? Some of them come back, I just pulled out some grey acid wash jeans from 2004 the other day!
  • If there’s are two pieces, and one is in a color that’s really flattering but the shape is so-so, and the other has an amazing shape but the color is not your best, which do you choose?  Your most flattering color or what flatters your body?  Hm….

So many decisions… what to do!


Update:  I am basically cool with the Guy again.  He said so many sweet things… teased me a little too.  I made up an excuse about not being available while he tried to reach me.  I am SOOOOO GLAD I didn’t talk to him when I was in the worst part of my moodiness the other day.  Who knows what weird comments I would have made.  After calming down I was able to be my normal sweet and in control self again.  Phewww!
