How does someone know if they like or love something?
You know that moment when you are walking past a store and all the sudden you stop to glare back at something that you just fell in love with the first time you saw it. It has defiantly happened to me..multiple times. You know you will walk out the mall with that one item you promised yourself..NOTHING ELSE! You take a closer look. And its completely wrong! The fabric itches. Its completely see through. Its too short. Too long. Its pattern isn’t what you thought it was. Or it costs as much as you make in a month. Its disappointing and the mannequin was made to pull anything off..remember that.
Looks can fool a girl…through glass but specially through the computer screen. Sometimes the websites may fool you to buy things you think you love but actually might be the opposite. Models look amazing in the clothes. DUH. But they are there to sell you the clothes. telling you “‘I’m having fun in these clothes. I look good in it,so you will too!”. DON’T EVER compare yourself to a mannequin. That’s part of the trick system of the fashion industry. Once you go home with those new shopping bags and you take the clothes out to try them on one more time…you either instantly love them or instantly say “What was I thinking?”..BUT there are ways to avoid the regret.
First, when you think you are “In love”❤️ with that shirt. You need to try in on! Don’t assume you’ll love everything about it just because you love the pattern or the fabric. Second, get a second honest opinion! Don’t ask one of the employees because they will tell you to buy it anyways! You will probably hear, “YEAH, GIRL, That looks cute on you!” and they may be telling you the truth but other half of time they say anything to get you to buy it.Bring a friend or take a mirror selfie and text it to one of your friends or even better…Your mom. Like it or not, Mom knows best!
When Online, First, you have to really know what size you are in that particular store. Second, again..don’t compare yourself with the models and try to picture yourself wearing the piece and make an outfit.
I love Fashion! I love clothes! but just like everything else…It can be misleading from a far.
