How To Buy Better Quality Clothing Without The Price Tag
Would you like to start spending less on clothing that lasts longer?
I used to spend so much money on clothes that didn’t survive a second wash without looking worn out. I was just tricking myself, believing I was saving money.
In the end, I realised I was just getting caught into the fast fashion roller coaster… Falling into the false belief system that I needed to buy clothing every month to be trendy!
But you know what the most frustrating part was for me?
It wasn’t that those clothes were made of polyester (and I hate that now) or that the fit was nowhere near ideal.
It was that when I found pieces that I truly LOVED I couldn’t wear them more than a month without them looking OLD!
That was sad!
Until I started realising that in the end, having MORE cheap clothing didn’t mean I had more pieces to wear, cause 80% of that closet was unwearable… It all look worn out!
That’s when I started applying my new philosophy: Buying less, investing in quality, saving even more.
Watch today’s video to find out how I do it:
After starting to shop this way, to my surprise: I now spend MUCH LESS in clothing than I used to 8-9 years ago.
Nowadays I only buy pieces (well, 90% of the time, I do have low days… But it’s important to not beat yourself up for it!) that have a good quality standard and 70% of the time I NEVER buy full price.
Some of my favourite brands that allow me to do this:
- Massimo Dutti
- COS Stores
- Scotch and Soda
- Ralph Lauren
- Pedro del Hierro (Spanish brand)
(and many more!)
This allows me to actually invest the 30% remaining on full price pieces that won’t be for sale, because they’re from small retailers, but they’re unique!
The stores that I mention in the video are stores where you can actually find good quality if you look well!!
Important: stay away from acrylic, and go more for natural fabrics.
Ideally organic cotton, wool, silk, linen.
I hope this was helpful; I’d love to know!!
