My sister does this thing where she won’t purchase the items she tries on. She tries them on for size, and if they work, she buys a “brand new” one from the rack, provided there are more units of her size left. Weird, right? πŸ˜„ I, on the other hand, prefer to buy the item that I tried on. Why? Because even when the sizes are the same, I’ve found that there are sometimes minor variations in the fit. Case in point: one of my recent pants purchase. I ordered 2 units of the same size and I kid you not, they each fit differently. One of them fits perfectly while the other one feels a little snug. Have you have that problem?

Do you typically purchase what you try on or do you go for the “untouched”, “brand new”, “straight-from-the-back-room” item? I’d love to hear your shopping practices!!!

What am I wearing? A black sheath dress from White House Black Market, a gingham tie blouse from Express, and some super high heels by Nine West. Perfect for the office! Your thoughts? πŸ˜ƒ
