When I revamped my wardrobe in a weekend: Lessons from a disastrous shopping spree
I have had many shopping binges over the years but there’s one that stands out for all the wrong reasons.
It was not even a long time ago, and turns out my efforts were ultimately in vain, but hey, at least I learned a truckload of lessons from the experience (though not the type I’d have wanted, but still).
So I was supposed to take up a new job at a short notice, which meant working 5 days a week. Having spent a considerable amount of time freelancing till then, I did not have a rich work-related collection in my wardrobe that would do justice to the upscale place I had to work at.
So the weekend before the Monday I was to start I set myself the task of getting a new to-die-for work wardrobe. All in a day and a half.
Here’s looking at why it was mad and why you shouldn’t ever attempt it.
Shopping isn’t always meant to be pleasurable.
When it’s work (like it was for me at the time) it should be approached as such -- in a systematic and professional manner. It will be a huge hassle otherwise which will leave you drained.
