90s fashion is back, and I am loving it! In today’s post, I am sharing four of my favorite pieces that anyone can wear as part of their daily basics.
One of my favorite pieces is the Fanny Pack, also called the belt bag. Most designers came out with a fanny pack this season, but I don’t like to spend a lot of money on pieces that are eventually going to go out of style. You can always find affordable Fanny Packs in any retail store. Another favorite piece of the 90s are the berets. I must admit that I have always been a fan of these hats. Vinyl is another trend that is still going strong from last year; not everybody likes it because it can get tricky to style it, but I do. The 90s was most known for cool sneakers, like the Nike Cortez and the Reeboks. I haven’t got myself a pair, but I need one for the Spring.
I was or am the kind of person who buys things just because I fall in love with them, and not exactly because I need them. That is why one of my resolutions for this year is to do more “Smart Shopping.” So what exactly is “Smart Shopping”? It is simple, it is what I call conscious shopping. So rather than buying things just because I love them, I am going to think more about my needs before purchasing them. Like, “How many times am I going to wear this piece?”
When you are into fashion you want to wear the trendiest pieces all the time, and there’s nothing wrong with that. But my biggest problem is that I was buying stuff that I was only wearing once. So my goal is to find pieces that I can wear multiple times-pieces that are classy, functional, and trendy, too.
One of thing that I am doing now before shopping online or at the store is questioning myself before buying anything.
I ask myself the following questions: “Do I really need this? How many times can I actually wear this?” Believe it or not this is working for me, along with planning my outfits, and knowing what I already have in my closet. Knowing what you have in your closet is essential when you want to “Smart Shop.” For example, I realized that I have three pairs of boots that look almost the same, and I was ready to buy another one. That’s when I stopped shopping for unnecessary things.
Now, let’s talk about my outfit. Everything I am wearing, with the exception of the coat, are items that I bought last year. I got the coat on sale two weeks ago. I also don’t recommend buying things just because they are on sale. It is not smart buying items that you don’t need only because it’s a good deal. In this case, I bought this puffer coat not only because it was on sale, but also because I needed one.
Let me know of any other strategies that work for you if you are a “Smart Shopper.”
How to survive the winter 101. Get a giant faux fur coat, one that can fit two of you inside, at least visually.
I’ve had this amazing faux fur coat since December last year ( It’s from H&M) and I couldn’t wait to wear it and feature it on the blog. It’s such a statement piece. Faux fur is your friend and a great fashion asset!
