    Default Fashion Truisms



    Started by one of our members. Add your own!



    # 1: carpe diem never goes on sale - unless, of course, it does.



    # 2: the best way to forget about an expensive garment you just bought is to buy another, more expensive one.




    # 3: prada is the rich man's gap.



    # 4: your fellow SZer's outfit is alwayssharper than yours.

    Final purchases have been made for the season...or the week. Whichever ends first.



    EDIT: I guess this is more of an 'SZ member' thing more than of fashion. So I've removed the number.

    #359. The thing you've been waiting months and years for and have been hunting internationally for.... shows up when you're absolutely broke. In your size. In your ideal color. For dirt ass "cheap" (50% off full retail of several thousand).




    #360. No matter how broke you are, if you REALLY want it. You somehow manage to "scrape together" $2500.




    #361. You get it, you're elated..... you wear it twice.




    #361. Less than 6 months later you put it up in the classifieds section.

    the piece is cool though even if its not in your size, you might as well give it a shot because you heard the 44 might fit like the 46

    #14. A garment's appeal is directly proportionate to how far away and inaccessible it is to you: the further away it is, the more you want it. Multiply the desire exponentially if it's only available in Japan.


    #15. Markdowns are like alcoholic drinks, while garments are like patrons in a bar: the more they occur, the more attractive the items look and the more you want to take them home with you, no matter how ugly they were at the beginning of the evening/season.

    LOL, I laughed at this one! Too true...





    #384. It's okay to spend 'X' amount of money on this item because I believe in what the designer is saying through clothing.



    #714. It's only rare when you can't post photos of the lookbook on the internet.



    #815. You know more than the SA's at Barneys.
