I decided to this blog post and video after I had a conversation with a friend yesterday and she said, “I’m 53 years old. I’m not wearing cheap stuff anymore”.
- Years ago I stopped buying cheap work out leggings. I was tired of them looking worn and not holding their shape after working out in them for a month. I started paying more and investing in better quality and you know what, the initial money was more upfront but I have had some pairs for years….. so the cost per year actually ends up being a lot less per wear than my cheaper ones I used to buy. And I am getting rid of less.
- I did the same thing with shoes years ago. No more “cute” shoes that are inexpensive. They hurt my feet, pinch, break down, etc. I have my shoes now for years and years and wear them ALOT.
- Many times we can initially be turned off by the price/cost of something we like and want to buy……but what if it’s something you will find yourself wearing a lot, you feel good in, and you feel great wearing isn’t that worth it?
- Casual clothes that you can dress up or down (a lot of us in this situation)
Think of long term items like coats, shoes, bags etc…..even jewelry.
think of jeans too….my past in designing etc…yes designer jeans can be expensive but they are worth it with the fit, better fabrics and last a long, long time.
For me, I have found a way to pivot with my lifestyle and career change and still look good and pulled together in my new life with fun leggings, Dyetology sweatshirts, and sparkly gym shoes.
