♥ Charging clothes to your credit card: If you are using your credit card to buy clothing, you should stop — immediately. Use your credit card to fund that trip to Europe you’ve wanted to take since you were five, or to buy that new laptop to jump start your small business. Don’t use your credit card to buy an overpriced jacket. Just go to H&M if it’s that serious.
♥ Making reckless ”on sale” purchases: Everyone loves a sale. No seriously, everyone really does. But the point of a sale is to buy something you want at a discounted price. Do not go into a store and buy some ugly sundress at an end of season sale because “Omg, it’s 75% off! I can totally get this tailored so it fits”. You will never get the dress tailored (and even if you did, it would still be ugly). Save your money and walk away.
♥ Holding on to clothes that are out of style: Now, every woman holds on to clothes that don’t fit. I mean, you have to. It’s motivation to work out one day in the future sometime. But, those low rise, light wash, flared jeans that landed you your first boyfriend in the sixth grade have got to go, honey. Take them to the trash, drop them in, and forget.
♥ Neglecting to buying your size: Fact — you look skinnier wearing clothes that fit.
♥ Not educating your man: Now, you ladies always look good. I am serious. Some of you follow me on various social platforms and I see your avatars! You go, ladies. But behind every well-dressed woman is a lovable man in a sweatshirt. Ladies, educate your men folk. Introduce him to a tailor (suits are not meant to be worn off the rack — I am talking to you, Mr. Baggy Suit Pants). Teach him about the power of dark wash jeans. Warn him of the dangers of cargo pants after age 12. Ladies, it is your right to go to dinner with a man who knows how to properly button a suit jacket! Go forth and educate.
Do you have any accidental fashion mistakes to warn us about?
