To avoid buying items that get less attention than Paris Hilton in 2016 ask yourself if your style icon would wear it. I always like to go shopping with someone in mind who looks effortless and timeless so when I pull out that trendy item that will soon be taboo, I know that I should probably put it back. Although it sounds a little ridiculous I legitimately ask myself *while looking at whatever I have pulled off the rack*, 'is this is the person I want to be?' Nine times out of ten I swear this question works!
Just because something is on a SUPER sale doesn't mean you should just spend money on it. Think about your favourite fashion blogger or celebrity etc. and really think about if you are buying this because you truly love it or because it's cheap/everyone else is wearing it.
Good luck shopping!!!!!
