Have you looked in the mirror today and admired how fly you are all on your own? At this time in your life that little task is one that should not be taken for granted, It could save you a ton on social shopping.
So now that I have your attention what is this term ‘social shopping’? Social shopping is buying an item just to show it off on social media. I feel kind of silly writing this because it kills me to acknowledge it happens, but sadly so many of my sisters (brothas too) do this. I will remind you now that style has no price tag and a label does not make you more stylish (look at Rita Ora-no shade). I will also remind you that affordability is not based on your credit card limit, we kind of forget sometimes that this is not money. So how can you save- identify you’re doing this and stop. You can do it and I know you can because this season you will remember the validation you’re looking for is not on social media.
Are you feeling a little judged? Do not, I am not here to scold you but rather educate and enlighten. I have social shopped before and purchased some expensive stuff worn once for the gram. Looking back that probably was not even my true style, I just fell into a trap. These days I’m growing and learning who I am more and more each day and with the comes confidence that I used to justify elsewhere. So no judgement just awareness and honesty.
