My after July 4th shopping philosophy:
- buy staples like T-shirts and jeans while they’re on sale
- buy warm weather clothes in classic silhouettes that will still look great next year (see my last post, Shopping the Summer Sales I)
- splurge on a designer piece or two that I couldn’t possible afford at full price. One caveat–I have to LOVE it for 10 years and it has to be something that fits into my wardrobe–no sequined T-shirts or chartreuse stilettos, no matter how great a deal!
- hunt for great deals on the fall/winter clothes left over from last year (that is the subject of my next post, Shopping the Summer Sales III) (more…)
