In order to use fashion wisely, you need to be COMFORTABLE WITHIN YOURSELF – or there’s the risk that you will lose yourself in the powerful fashion system and end up wearing what it dictates, rather than what SUITS YOU BEST. Fashion itself can be fun, exciting and inspiring – BUT you need to be careful that you manage it wisely so that it doesn’t manage you. If you’ve ever found yourself reading fashion mags or watching fashion TV and feeling that you ABSOLUTELY HAVE to have these new things for yourself, no matter what …. please know that you’re not going crazy! This is exactly how the fashion industry WANTS YOU TO FEEL!
Firstly, it’s important to remember that fashion is an industry and that, just like any other industry, it wants to make money. You also need to know the ways that this industry has to make sure that you keep you buying and spending as much as possible. Then you can be prepared and empowered so that you’re not manipulated by the system.
In order to keep making a profit, the fashion industry requires a regular, ongoing turnover with PEOPLE LIKE YOU BUYING NEW STUFF ALL THE TIME!
There are many people who buy new clothes and shoes every single week – and some even shop for new things every day! This is a habit which has come to seem so ‘normal’ that they don’t even see anything strange about it.
If you’re one of these people, stop for a moment to think about this habit. Relentless shopping for new things can easily become an addiction which wastes time and money and stands in the way of a wiser and more conscious use of your energy and resources.
If you add up the amount of money that you’ve wasted on clothes that are still in their bags, with their price tags still on them, you will be shocked!
Over the course of the next few weeks, we’ll be looking at how you can enjoy fashion and have fun with it, while also using it to your best advantage.
