Do you get caught up in the excitement of buying something on sale, only to never end up wearing it?

So its sale time again & trust me, I know how easy it is to get caught up in all the buzz of finding a great item at a great price & while it can be the perfect time to find some quality pieces at heavily reduced prices, it can also be a trap for us emotional shoppers! So….WHEN IS A BARGAIN ACTUALLY A BARGAIN? If you already own 3 black going out tops, and you very rarely go out, do you really need another? We quite often buy pieces because we love the idea of them, but unless they suit your lifestyle will you actually get the use out of it? Remember, every bargain purchase is $$ that can be spent on items that you actually need & could get more wear out of, so keep this in mind before you buy! Instead of impulse buying, keep a list in your purse of the items that you actually need & stick to it!

  • • HOW TO LAYER UP • Its deep in to that trans-seasonal time of year when we have no clue what to expect one hour from the next and If you live in Melbourne you MUST know how to nail the art of layering to combat our 4 seasons in one day.... Layering is simply the art mastering the right combinations and I promise it isn't actually as hard as you think. Just follow these simple rules to make life that wee bit easier.

• Make most layers light in weight
• Layer from thin to thick
• Keep thick knits, coats or jackets as the very outer layer
• Add a pattern or texture for interest
• Don’t forget your head, neck, feet & hands. Accessories are a great way to keep warm and add that extra element of style

  • • This is literally my 3rd pair of the same white sneakers (plus I have a brand spanking new 4th pair awaiting in the wardrobe) Would definitely be the most worn item in my wardrobe, but I like them looking fresh & white, hence the multiple pairs 😂 Does anyone else buy multiples of their favorite staple items? • #sneakers 👟 @witcheryfashion @cable_bay_vineyards #wearwhatmakesyoufeelgood #casualstyle #personalstylist #personalshopper #melbournestylist #newzealand
