I love shopping, I know you do too. It’s a rush. It’s my cardio. But this isn’t the best habit to have… yes I shop smart and use every single shopping ninja secret known in the Milky-way Galaxy. Sometimes you just have to get creative. And that is exactly what I did here.
Often I find myself lusting after an outfit I see on Instagram or in a storefront on a manikin. We all get that FOMO feeling when we realize that we don’t have that exact outfit in our possession – or do we? Our minds are quickly overtaken with the idea that we need to have that outfit, or those shoes or that bag or that jacket… and we are dragged back down to reality when we look at the price tag. Accepting defeat is not part of my personality – I may lay low for a minute, but when I do come back it is always with a plan.
So ask yourself the following questions:
- Do I have something similar?
- Do I know someone who has something similar?
- Is this item an investment piece? (SERIOUSLY!)
It all started with an inspiration from Pinterest and my indecision to decide which look I wanted to recreate. I never thought that my indecision would create such a fun look, and something I never considered doing: layering coats. We all have those fun fashion coats which are realistically not warm enough to wear during a frigid day, especially here in New York. So why not layer your favorite coats for a fun (and interesting) look.
