Fashion Radar

By  0 Comments

I have this problem. Some might call it a blessing; some might call it a curse.

I can’t buy new clothing that’s full price. If I don’t feel like I am getting a good deal, it never ends up in my cart online shopping or at a brick and mortar store.

Okay, okay, so this isn’t really a problem. It’s just my way of life, I will be the first one to admit. Unless they sell it at Target next to the milk aisle, it’s usually not on my radar to wear. 

It’s my job to dress up for work and I enjoy the hunt of dress shopping for cute and unique clothing. If I think back to the last five clothing purchases I’ve made, they are all for work. Some might be surprised to hear this, but they were all less than $25. Yep, that’s right; $25! I told you if it’s not a deal I don’t buy it. I would never consider a work or personal clothing purchase for full price. It’s just who I am, for both good and bad.

If I think of the last five clothing purchases for my kids, I can’t quite say the same thing. I am sure I snagged some of the items for a deal, but my kids’ purchases just don’t go through the same filters mine do. I might be alone as a mom on this, but I kinda doubt it. 

I know I should splurge more on myself; it just rarely happens. Is it the challenge of finding the deal? Is it because my parents raised me to work hard for every dollar that I make and not waste? I am not sure. It’s probably a little bit of both.

I do take pride in what I wear each morning on KCTV5 NEWS; the next time you see me on TV I hope that you like my morning fashion. Regardless, you will know for sure I got it for a good deal!
