35. Are you generally a good judge of whether what you buy will end up being worn? Have you figured out how to know in advance?

Yes, I'm extremely good at buying what I will need and use. It's taken a lot of practice, but I'm really proud of this skill.

I consider myself quite good at judging if it’ll be worn. If I like it, I’ll wear it. So if I like it, I buy it.

Usually, but it's just about saying "I won;t buy this if I won't wear it."

Yes. I normally think about buying the clothes I want ahead of time.

I know exactly what I like and I know how to use the computer to find it in advance.

Yes I try on the clothes to make sure I like the way it looks for my age.

actually yes, since i started making my own clothes i feel pretty good at discernment of what i need and will use.

Not buying has solved a lot of that dilemma.


Maybe today. I'm trying to think what kind of clothes I usually wear, in what kind of situations. And will I be able to combine this new piece with those at home. Or does it solve a problem ("I can't go riding if it rains, because I don't have a proper raincoat." So I bought one.)

Generally I am, this is a learned behaviour though. However, I still refuse to cut the tags off a garment until I am 100% sure it is going to be worn. If it still hasn't been worn up until a week before the exchange period is up I will take it back to the store for a refund.

na - im rubbish at it

if i'm buying stuff because i want to buy something without finding something I usually end up not wearing it. So now I buy food then or wine.

I am a good judge of if I will wear it 65% of the time.

I have got better at this, though given that I have taken to shopping online more frequently in the last few years I have got things wrong on a few occasions. Generally the things I don't end up wearing aren't things I dislike the look of, but things that don't quite work that well on my body.
