Bonus: how to buy only the right things?!
Sitting on the self-isolation, I decided to replenish the moneybox “obscurity” and watch movies about fashion. In the list of recommendations, I got a light, naive, maiden film of 2016 “Shopaholic”. In the center of the story is a bright, naive beauty who can not pass by the shop windows. In stores she feels at home, and shopping for new things is her therapy. Her closet is overflowing with bright dresses, skirts, and a bunch of T-shirts. There are more clothes in her house than in a modern mall, but the bad luck is that the 12th credit card is over, and the debt has grown huge.
Looking at her images and things, I was quietly jealous, like a girl, and then I thought, and I need so many clothes? It is known that the production and purchase of clothing pollutes the planet, pulls money out of your wallet, spends your time and takes a place at home.

I remember the time when the Russian market was flooded with a huge number of Chinese things, opened many stores with things one brighter than the other. I remember when my mother went to the market in the neighboring city and bought things in bags: not one skirt, but three at once, not two dresses, and eight at once!
What is the result of this crazy consumption?
First, the warehouse of things at home, which are dusting in the dressing room with tags and waiting for their stellar hour for years. We spend money, time, energy, not realizing, this or that thing suits us, with what we will wear it, where we will put it.
Money in the wind
Before you buy another down coat for the winter, using a credit card, do we think: “Why?”. Is the old one worn out or just ashamed to walk in last year?
Shopping as therapy.
If shopping is a great pleasure and a woman likes to please herself with shopping, then, in my opinion, it is better to spend money not on a new useless blouse, but on linen, perfume or body or hair care products.
We divide the price of a thing by the number of times you wear it. Look at the value of the outfit on the other hand. For example, a dress for 1000 worn once will not seem as attractive as a daily quality jacket for 1000, which can be worn frequently and will last 5-10 years!

Ignorance of my own style.
When we do not know the features of our figure and style, we start looking at things wrong. Yes, this is the first time I’ve used this word because I’ve learned by my own example how to look at things correctly so that they don’t add up, but are used.
Look at the dress, not from the point of view of “Oh, how beautiful”, but critical! Imagine not a single specific thing, but an image!
- “Yes, the dress is beautiful. Will it emphasize the merits of my figure and hide the flaws?”
- “Where will I wear this dress?”
- “What will I wear this dress with?”
- “What impression will I have when wearing this dress?”
- “What tasks will I solve with this outfit and what goals will I achieve?”
- “Do I really need the 20th dress? After all, I have already 19 in my closet!”
Now back to the question from the article? How many things do you and I really need?
I sincerely believe that you can do with a good quality base and accessories. An individual set of things that fit four parameters:
- Your appearance
- Style of Life
- Desired impression
I am sure that it is better to buy one good, worthy thing than a million jackets that look cheap. I can not do without examples of good, quality things. I have prepared only 7 options for you, I will give you the composition.

The main trend in fashion and in the world is awareness and conscious consumption! The trend is for us to understand and be aware of everything: why we do certain actions, make purchases, work, create relationships. Conscious consumption is important for both personal development and respect for the earth’s resources.
