Rather than stuff your closet with a bunch of new things that you'll rarely wear, make mindful choices with your purchases so you end up with wardrobe update that makes sense for your style. These 10 questions will keep you on track to creating a wardrobe you love.

Make Your Closet A Refection Of Your Style

When you’re in the store, or online, and you’re about to buy, take a long look at what you’re getting. Examine the garment from all angles and inspect the fabrication. As you size it up, ensure that it’s a good representation of how you want to look. Also make sure it looks like it will hold up pretty well rather than fall apart easily.

Sometimes when we buy, we’re hasty with our decisions. Often we succumb to a sale so we don’t miss out on the bargain. Or we get swept up in the moment of shopping because it’s fun and exciting.

Then there are the times we shop despite the fact we don’t need anything new. If your wardrobe needs a purge, this post explains the benefits of a closet clear out.

To help you be more mindful with your purchases, I created a video with a line of questions to ask yourself before adding anything new to your closet. This way, when you’re in the store you’ll be able to get clear about what you’re buying so you don’t end up with an item that doesn’t serve you or your style.

Watch the video, and then tell me in the comments below what you ask yourself before buying anything new for your closet.  I want to hear from you!

  1. Good information! Good idea to maybe when you purchase something new to give away something old and you don’t wear very often.

  2. This is a great idea, Michele! It helps create the space for the new item.

    I rarely go to stores to buy. I shop on ebay and have quite a few pairs of Ferragamo and Bruno Magli shoes that have been barely worn. I did get a Furla bag on ebay which I still wear. Black legging and some on trend sequined tops were a sure score. So I have bought some pricey items for next to nothing. Even a David Yurman ring. Elysha, so glad I have you to share these wins with…..

  4. Pamela, those are quite the wins! I always feel accomplished when I get a good item deeply discounted. Thanks for sharing!
