Recently I shared my latest fashion purchases in the New-in my wardrobe post. What the article did not cover was the items that I bought and regretted it afterwards. Often when I shop, I rarely try clothes on because well I don’t care much for changing rooms. But on this occasion I would have been better off trying the items before buying them. But, I did not and here we are with me sharing the 3 items I bought and regretted buying.
We all have moments when it feels like life is an episode and it can decide to teach us a lesson. The lesson for me it was I should start trying on clothes before I buy. This not only allows me to avoid disappointment when I get home but allows me to pick something else. There are times we buy items that we hope will fit on us as it does on the model and it rarely happens.
3 Items I bought and regretted that I did
There are times when I see an outfit and think that looks awesome I should buy it, when I do it doesn’t fit the same. And that’s fine because we are all different and unique in our own way which shouldn’t be a bad thing. But we all know our confidence can take a slight tumble for a moment before we knock ourselves back into our senses. There are times when things including fashion causes us to lose confidence in ourselves, it is normal. How we handle it afterwards is what matters, that is the defining moment for most of us.
Sometimes us ladies often put ourselves in uncomfortable situations when it comes to being fashionable. We often get these *ideas that its ok to be like this or that in the name of fashion. Like not wearing enough during winter because we want to stay fashionable, don’t do it. Best be warm and stylish than almost frozen to dead for fashion. With that being said, here are the items I bought and regretted it afterwards.
Non-stretchy Skinny Jeans
When it comes to skinny jeans in H&M, your size is not the same e.g. I am size 12 but I wear 16 in H&M. Most of us ladies know that one size does not fit all nor do all the shops have same sizing. I was disappointed to get home and find the one pair of jeans I loved did not fit me. Yes! I know it is my own damn fault for not trying the item on before I bought it. But to be honest, how many times have you shopped with just your eyes? You know certain shops which size you have and it has always worked, that was me. Well next time I know I will be trying things on before I leave the store with any new shopping.
I don’t even know why I let my sister convince me the crop top would look good on me. I knew it wouldn’t but wanted so bad to believe it would, having a chunky mid section doesn’t always bode well with crop tops. For the longest time I have avoided crop tops because they don’t suit my body type. But alas it took my sister to change my views but even then that did not work out well.
I have always been a firm believer that crop tops look better on a flat tummy than a padded one. As someone with a padded mid-section, I avoid crop tops as I don’t think they look good on me. Well with this recent plunder of a purchase, I have reconfirmed my initial thinking and won’t be purchasing crops tops again. Though I am not say I will NEVER, just saying not any time in the foreseeable future. Lesson learnt here is to trust my instincts as there are often always right.
The final item that I bought and regretted buying is a jumpsuit, I have always had a love/hate relationship with them. The biggest annoyance is toilet time and my latest purchase took it to a while new level. Every time I see a really cute jumpsuit I aways debate whether it’s a sound choice or not. Often I say it is not because my first thoughts are how hard is it to manage come toilet time.
Anyone whose ever worn jumpsuits knows there is nothing worse than wearing a jumpsuit out and about. I hate having to be butt naked in public toilets or even slightly peeing myself because it took forever to remove. Don’t get me wrong, some jumpsuits are too cute to avoid purchasing them but they are last choice.
When was the last time you went out shopping and regretted some if not all your purchases? Especially with clothing which instinctively you knew it wouldn’t be fine but you bought it anyway?
