Retail Bootcamp: Shop Smart


It's time for another episode of my new Style Coaltion TV show, Retail Bootcamp! In this vid, I share tips to help you shop smart so you can avoid the dreaded "buyer's remorse." How do you avoid making purchases you might later regret? Let me know in the comments.

Loved the video. I always take a picture and send it to my bestie who is a stylist before I buy.

Wait 48 hours?! What if it's on sale and someone gets it before I do? That "fear" drives a lot of my impulse buys.

Love the video! I pretty much try to follow all these rules already, especially the two outfit rule. I need to be better with the cost per wear rule, just because something is on sale that I won't ever wear doesn't mean it's a good deal whereas the more expensive blazer I wear constantly is worth it in the end! Thanks for the reminders!

@Megan - and I need to remind myself to bite the bullet and spend a little more from time to time on those investment pieces. It's worth it like you said ;-)
