Feeling guilty after shopping… (How not to feel it)

Have you ever gone online just to browse what stores have in and learn about a new deal. Deals worth taking advantage of, for example, buying one getting two free… As soon as seeing that deal you begin your search over the many clothes included in the promotion and start filling your shopping cart to the point it will soon overflow. This just happened to me last night when browsing http://www.saksoff5th.com/ . It was no trouble finding things  I liked and eventually buying them. If you are in the look for something and  want two get two other free pieces, you might as well go and check it out.  They have brand such as Moschino, Zac Posen, Fendi, Tibi, Rebbeca Minkoff, Badgley Mischka, and such. After buying some things I felt guilty, but this always happens.. What made me feel better is that I got free things, and most of all I really love them.

RULES

One of my rules when taking advantage of this type of promotions is to always love and adore what I am buying.

My second rule I like to set in mind when shopping this type of deals is to always buy something unusual that I wouldn’t normally buy.

Third rule is to never buy something that is not your size only because it is at a GREAT price, you will never wear it. Believe me. Leave it to someone that will fit in it perfectly.

Fourth rule is to set a limit on what you are buying.

Tip: If you have been looking for a more expensive piece, such as a leather jacket, an expensive pair of shoes or a gown go ahead and take advantage of sales for this type of clothes.

Here are some of the things I loved, some I bought and some I didn’t..

Is fashion a trend?

Some individuals don’t know the difference between fashion and style. I like to think that everyone is stylish, (of course), in their own way. Style is a way of doing something repeatedly in the same manner, it’s want makes a person distinct and different from the others. Fashion on the other hand is just a trend, just like peplum, gladiator sandals, flower crowns and such. Most of the times, runways are in charge of setting this type of trends, making them popular enough in order for many to wear. In my opinion, some people don’t like to follow fashion, they just like to follow their own style and thats a great thing to do. If you are like me you are this way, you just wear what you like. For example, wearing a maxi dress doesn’t fit me and so I don’t wear them. It’s not that I don’t like them, but I  think that they don’t fit ME! (I wish they did) This is why I think the actual concept of fashion is a trend.  Fashion comes and goes during the seasons. Right now I could say that the sixties are defining the word “fashion”. High waisted skirts, turtle necks, pencil skirts, tweed, preppy jackets/blazers unusual flash patterns are representing fashion, this is all because they were  present in Fashion Week last February. All of this trends will then be replaced by other unexpected trends we don’t know about, and so the word “fashion” will no longer mean high waisted shorts, tweed or unusual patterns.

Here is what I mean on this seasons “fashion’s” meaning.
