A Sophisticate's Guide To Shopping

Shopping. It's fab. But it has it bad side. It makes you blow money you don't have. It's time consuming. It's addictive!  
This article helps you bask in the sun of shopping and veer away from those bad things about it.  

To prepare..... 
Before you go shopping do these things. Don't worry they won't take more than 2 minutes, it won't take up any of you're shopping time!  

Firstly. SET A BUDGET. Only bring the amount of money you plan to spend. This way you aren't tempted to blow your budget. 
Also set a time limit. You don't want to miss anything. 

Ask yourself these questions 

Do I need any garments? For example: you are low on skirts, it's cold and you need a coat, you need a new bag as yours is getting old.  
What are the trends and do I care about them enough to buy around them?   
What shops should I go to? 

You can even check online at your favourite stores before you leave so you have an idea of what you might buy.  

Where to shop
Go somewhere where you have a bit of variety. Your local mall, department store or high street are usually the best spots. 

It's important to keep a balance. Have a browse at all types of stores. High-end, vintage, op shop! Keep it mixed! 

How to ENJOY shopping  
The best way to enjoy shopping is to go with your favourite people. Walk along chatting and then get second opinions about all your favourite garnments. Sit down and get a drink. Talk. Eat. Shop. Laugh. Enjoy. 

Happy shopping!
