Insomniac browsing of trends – my Zaful chart

Trends that work over 50

A while ago, I wrote about my pledge not to buy after 8 pm. It’s to avoid impulse buying and staying on a budget. Nevertheless, I love to browse online stores late in the evening. I fill up my chart with items that I love and that are trendy, but nevertheless wearable over 50. Only when I wake up the next day and can’t stop thinking about an item, then I apply my buying rules to decide whether or not to hit the purchase button.

Since Zaful has its 4th anniversary, I browsed the Zaful 4th Anniversary sale they asked me to make a wish list. Thus, I filled my chart with items suitable for women in midlife.

In the following the actions are given in brackets.

  • Can I afford buying it? No (don’t buy. Pin it to your pinterest wish list and search for a cheaper version. Delete it from the chart.) Yes (goto next question).
  • Do I already own a similar piece? No (don’t buy). Yes (go to next question).
  • Is this a style that works for my personal style and lifestyle? No (don’t buy). Yes (go to next question).
  • Will I be embarrassed when my grandkids see photos of me in this look in 10 years? This means is the trend ridiculous and a one-day fly. Yes  (don’t buy).  No  (goto next question).
  • Can I come up at least with three different outfits with this piece with pieces I already own? No (don’t buy). Yes (go to next question).

Of course, I can’t get them all. I can’t stop thinking about this brown polka dot dress ever since Julia Roberts wore a similar one in Pretty Woman. The swing dresses would be perfect for dancing. Good thing, one of them is plus size. I wanted a lemon dress since a long time.
