Over-buying and compulsive shopping behaviour is no different to binge eating. The empty emotional hole that you’re trying to fill with clothing will never be satisfied and I know as an ex shopaholic. Shopping offers a temporary high and often excessive shopping can become a coping method to distract yourself from the real underlying problem, you are unhappy and unfulfilled. You believe shopping is the answer to all your prayers!
The problem with this behaviour is, avoidance does not work and will only makes things worse because what starts out as an emotional problem is further compounded by massive credit card debt and a pointless closet filled with clothes you don’t need and will never wear.
Take a leaf out of Sharon Stone’s book of life and get yourself some recycled vintage fashion in order to practise your own style and not waste any more money on mistakes, ill-fitting clothes and spending money you just don't have for a high that lasts as long as it takes to sneeze.
Fashion is for sheep, style is unique, so no matter how old you are, how inexperienced you are, practise your own style with someone else's mistakes, at the same time saving you cash and the distress when the unwanted debts mount up in a pile bigger than the unwanted clothes you will never wear. Just plain old common sense as they say.
