HOW DO I SURVIVE FITTING ROOM PANIC?
"It’s tough. My best advice is to make use of the return policy and try everything on at home instead. There you have time and privacy, which minimises the risk of buying something you’ll never use. Also, there is a smart trick. Hold the jeans waist around your neck, if they fit around there the jeans will also fit your waist. Weird, but works!"
"You’ll never find me in a fitting room! It’s too much of a hassle. I want to try it with my other clothes, see how it works in different outfits, so I always bring stuff home and return what doesn’t feel right."
WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON SALES?
"I find it very hard; there are just too many traps. You buy stuff you never use, or you buy way too much stuff, making it expensive anyway. The only exception is when you find something you been wanting for a long time and almost bought at full price."
"It’s just like other times you go to the store; you really need a plan. If you think ahead and know what you need, sales can be fantastic, but you have to be smart."
