I can’t tell you how many times I’ve gone shopping or browsed online for countless pieces ranging from jewelry to furniture only to be disappointed at the high-ticket. Now, I always knew I had expensive taste, but from time to time I just want a good steal. Like many of our fashionistas today, I have to start shopping smart in these tough economic times.
Needless to say, I just can’t help but to land my eyes on something priced outrageously. So many of my girlfriends make the same comments and they are quite familiar with this so called phenomena! Sometimes it’s just too hard to keep up with such taste. You would think the famous saying “champagne taste on a soda pop budget” will hit you smack dab in the face to remind you, but of course not.
Some of us will still indulge, including me! I’ve learned now, that it’s never sexy to be in debt or flat out broke for a pair of shoes that will be out of season quicker than you can apply your make up. After all, living by Carrie Bradshaw’s quote, “I like my money right where I can see it, hanging in my closet,” isn’t quite wise, is it?
