I was browsing EBAY (yes, addiction at it’s finest) and one of those IT must have (had) items popped up in a form of the KENZO Tiger sweater. While I was studying the offer, the situation made me think of the clever shopping tactics VS. the crazy must haves. I remember just a year ago (2) every blogger and street style photograph featured this green sweater.
And then I remembered a few of my friends spending their savings on one of these sweaters not long ago. Can we still impress anyone with these after the craze goes down? Can I impress myself with the fashion sense? For sure not! Is it worth your last money? The answer is probably no. Ones who care know it’s a timed bomb that after explosion becomes the most overrated item in your closet and a show off piece. If I can’t afford to wear it 3 times, than it’s really not worth it.
My suggestion? If you like an IT item that you have the money for, look around and find something similar from the same brand that you can end up wearing for a century to come. (or go to Zara) That’s that :)
