Stuff I Want Wednesday

2 Mar

In lieu of a typical Stuff I Want Wednesday, today I present the life philosophy (or, at least, the shopping philosophy) I want to adopt. This is what I want this week. I’ve been seeing this quote reposted for about a week now, and thought it was my duty to follow suit:

If she can’t afford it, she won’t buy it. If it doesn’t fit (or make her feel good, or flaunt what she’s got), she won’t wear it. If she can’t find it, she won’t compromise. If she loves it, she won’t toss it. She reuses it, rethinks it, lets it age.

When a French girl shops, it isn’t a solitary act of buying something new. It’s part of a lifelong process of editing her environment, making small but meaningful additions to her home, her closet, her life.

When you shop like a French girl, you buy only one of anything – and make sure it’s the best quality you can afford.
