Looking Good for Less

Each season I'm full of excitement as I anticipate the bevy of "new arrivals." Thoughts swirl in my mind as I look forward to integrating new pieces into my wardrobe. This can be rather a daunting task, as I try to distinguish the "needs" and the "wants." The problem is, I have a hard time parting with things (to make room for new items), even if it's something that I haven't worn in a while. I know that there are some things that I should get rid of in favor of newer pieces, but what if I find that I need it later! Such is the dilemma for many of us girls who are true fashion lovers!

Due to the fact that my "wants" are always more than my "needs," I try to balance things out a bit by finding the things that I really like at prices that will afford me more for my money, though I want quality pieces that look good. Don't get me wrong, I still invest in "luxury" pieces, as I think that we all like mixing the high and low.
